Drumroll please....

I know you've been waiting with baited breath (I don't even know what that means, but it sounds cool) to discover what the final total is on Sunday's offering.
Well the wait is over: $9607.06!

Thanks so much to all of you who asked God what you should give, and then followed through by giving it. The folks at Mid-Town and at GAIHN will be thrilled to receive the extra funds next week.

Now that the first part of the partnership with GAIHN and Springwell is over, you may be wondering, "what's next?" Donny and I will be talking to the guys at Springwell in the next couple of weeks about when we can begin work on the house we will be renovating. As soon as we know what the plan is, we will send it your way. There will be lots of opportunity for you to serve using your construction, cleaning, organizational, and administrative skills. Start praying now about how you might be involved.

GO Camp update: Emily called yesterday and said the teenagers had a great first day of work at GO Camp. Sarah Burkhalter gave Tracy and Paige a similar report. Pray for Blake, Laura Beth, and all the students who went on this trip.

Personal note of interest to almost no one but me: I exercised yesterday for the first time in two weeks. I don't know why I drop out of that routine every once in a while. While I was on the treadmill I felt more energetic than I have in...well, in about two weeks. Funny how that works out.

2 Weeks! ? Does Jim Settle need to come up there and put you on a rigid program?

I couldn't hang with one of Coach Settle's programs, now Coach Pinney on the other hand...

I thought you were looking a little flabby after that beach trip! Get to work slug!

Baited Breath? Is that like someone who snores while awake or is that like fish breath? Either one is pretty gross.

I've wondered what that expression meant also. Here is a link from a google search that defines it. http://www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-bai1.htm Have a great day! BS

Looks like I goofed on the HTML hyperlink to the definition of "Baited Breath". See if this works.
