~ January Cotillion ~

I came across these pictures and realized I never posted Lauren's January cotillion. My sister, Kassy, fixed Lauren's hair. (I was out of town.) I think she did a good job. Lauren really liked it! I arrived at cotillion at the very end. All I really saw was the cupid shuffle. Lauren forgot what the name of the dance they had learned that evening, but she had a great time. I suppose that is all that matters.

~ Praise Team Retreat ~

This past weekend was our praise team retreat. Brother Tom planned this for us to learn new music and study God's word.

I love how God uses Terral and I for music. Terral really blesses my heart with his abilities on the fiddle.

I have come to know each praise team member, some more than others, but I love them all. Susie has really become one whom I love to talk to. She is really a true disciple of God. I know God is teaching me a lot through her. I love her so much!!

We all had a great time!! Brother Tom put together some great lessons for us. Each of us shared when we were saved, which was amazing! I really opened up with this group this weekend. They feel like family. We are all different in so many ways, but we all love Jesus and want to bring others to Him.

Here are all the men who attended.

Here are all the ladies.

I want to thank Brother Tom for being a true disciple for Christ! He did an awesome job putting music together, plus the lessons and all the planning for meals and room assignments. He put a lot of effort into this retreat. He has a desire for us to help lead others to Christ. Praise team is not something that is taken lightly. We are examples on that stage. We are not performing; we are praising Jesus and trying to lead others to do the same.

Again, it was a great weekend. We sang and others played instruments, but it went straight to Jesus.

The CROSS is for dying.
The TOWEL is for serving.
The YOKE is for learning.
