Today we took a field trip to Granard Middle School where Sister Dawn Dover, a member of our church, is the music teacher. She was directing a production of the Wizard of Oz and asked that our homeschoolers please come. It was really sweet of her to invite us to watch this all time favorite story. They did a very good job! Thanks, Sis Dawn, for inviting us!!Hannah and I cleaned up the house a little bit and started getting ready for the Mother & Daughter Banquet. The theme was The Best Things In Life Are Free...NOT! Mom and Sis Ava(our pastor's wife) sang a song about being a senior that went to the tune of Jesus Loves Me. It was so hilariously funny. Mom was wearing a gray wig and when they got to the part about ...Yes, Clairol helps me...she pulled off the wig and we all cracked up. Everyone knows my mother and Mrs. Clairol are very good friends. So that was funny.Amanda Fox and I did a skit I wrote about a woman who has her credit card bill and can't understand why her charges are so high. She calls the CC company (Masterofyourwallet) and gets the automated voice on the other end. I was hiding in a room with a microphone so you couldn't see me, but you could hear me doing the automated voice. It was funny. Betty Jean Spangler sang a song that was really pretty. I had never heard it before and I can't remember the name of it, but it really was moving.Then Sis Ava spoke to us on our theme. Mom took notes and so I'm going to use her notes to give you an idea of what Sis Ava spoke to us about:Salvation is not free...Christ gave His life.Godly family is not free. A heavy price is paid for a godly family. Do you have a longing in your heart to have a godly family? Ephesians 5:21SUBMIT to God first, not my will, but thine.SUBMIT to God and then others.Build your home and teach your children the WORD of God, Deuteronomy 6:7, that's all the time. I was glad to see her use that verse because at the NCDNPE they have the name of our school as Deuteronomy 6:7 Homeschool. Choose whom ye shall serve.Walk right in your own house.Enjoy the blessings that come from having a godly home.Take time to build friendships.Be a loyal friend forever. True to the end.Sacrifice.Walk with Christ every day.Totally jump into serving Christ with your whole heart.Be a testimony everywhere you go as a woman of God.Thank you, Sis Ava for a great Mother & Daughter Banquet. We love you!Here are pictures from our day. Because of lighting, some of the ones from the play are a little dark. And the very large flowers you see in the Banquet pictures were made by our very own Sis Janet Poston, our wonderful church secretary. GREAT JOB, SIS JANET!!!
