Lookin' forward to the weekend!

This has been an unusually long week for me! I literally collapsed every day when I got home from work. I think part of the problem is that I'm so ready for spring. It's been an unusually long, cold winter here in Central Georgia. I'm ready to see some color outside - green grass and flowers budding. We still have alot of work to do in our yard though. We've only been in our home for a year and a half, so we have more landscaping to be done.

I should feel rejuvenated and refreshed this weekend, though. Our church is hosting our 4th annual ladies conference. It's always so much fun! We will have two speakers and praise and worship music. There's a morning session and one after lunch. Each year our social hall is transformed into a beautiful setting of flowers, brilliant color, and a fabulous table scape full of food. Our pastor's wife used to own a catering business, so she has the best recipes for chicken salad and other "light" and delicious luncheon foods for us ladies. I'll be sure to report in and maybe share a few pictures.

The WMU group I am a member of is in the process of doing our 2nd annual Baby Bottle Boomerang fundraiser to benefit a nearby pregnancy care center. Last year we raised over $1,000.00 for the center! Who would've thought filling baby bottles with spare change, and of course a few dollar bills and checks, could turn into so much money? Isn't God good?! He turns our "little" into "much".

Before I go, I'd like a little help from the blog world. If anyone out there has a particular female Bible character whose story has touched your life, I'd love to hear about it. I know what my favorite are and why, but it's so much fun to hear how other people have been touched by those same Bible stories.

I've got to get busy making some more of my cloth dolls for this year's God's Gals Story Time. Last year we did the Samaritan woman, Elizabeth, and Queen Esther. The craft the girls made before the tea party was a crown to help them remember the story of Queen Esther. I had an earlier post with pictures of last year's event. (Maybe one day I'll figure out how to post a link to that entry).

I hope everyone has a great weekend! Stay warm :)
