So Funny!

We had people over tonight and Jacob & Joel brought Wii over. This is one of the best things I have seen in a long time.

Missing onePlace

Last night I visited a new church, it was good and different. It happened to be downtown really close to onePlace and I had some time to kill before I was meeting someone else so I decided to go inside one last time (I still have a key :)).

It was so empty, had water puddles on the floor from the last rain storm, quiet. I sat on the floor looking at the building, admiring the brick wall, thinking of all the memories from this building...

Dylan running around with the red truck knocking into all the chairs and people
Cadence with her wonderful filthy feet and knees from crawling on the never clean floor
Random chairs
Honest worship
Mark and I's first communion together after Lincoln's passing
Friendships
Hearing Laurie's voice singing (even when she wasn't leading)
Cleaning the awful bathrooms
Dylan's cross art project and him learning that Jesus dies for our sins
Reading new quotes on the bathroom walls
Hearing Jeremiah & Shelly sing Jesus loves me on a Sunday they lead church
Communion Feast
Witnessing Mark's volunerability and transformation
Knowing deep love for my family
Maggie's dedication
Pancake breakfast
Herberts birthday
Dylan dancing to songs of praise

The thoughts continue on...I stand with my arms out, tears running down my face and say I am grateful. Thank you God for the journey. It is met with the quietness of the building and a deep satisfaction in my heart.

My Son - The Drummer

We just bought the drum kit from the church and Dylan now plays all the time.

The first video is of him when we first starting bringing the pieces home but still hadn't brought the kick home yet. He created his own set all on his own...came in the room and found him this way.

Second video is after the kit is set up...I think he will be our rock star!
