Thursday Thirteen #3

Thirteen Things I Am Looking Forward To
1. Awana start September 6th at our church! I am the director of Chums (8 & 9 year old girls). Please be in prayer for our church. This is an awesome opportunity to reach kids throughout our community!
2. My hubby called and said he had a surprise for me! I just hope it isn't a stray he found on the side of the road!
3. The kid's school pictures should be here in about a week. I can't wait to compare them with last year's pictures and see the changes.
4. September 8th is our 22nd wedding anniversary and we are going away for a long weekend! We get to go to the IMAX, the art museum, shopping and eat whatever we want!
5. My good friend is having her first baby next Wednesday and he's gonna be a big one! I pray she has an easy time.
6. Our church is in the process of hiring a new senior pastor and I am seeking God's will and anxiously awaiting to see who it will be.
7. Who can forget the new fall line up?! I hope there will be some more family type shows we can all sit down and watch together. And, of course, American Idol starts in January!
8. Donny Osmond was supposed to have released a dvd with all the old Donny & Marie shows on it by now. I need to check in with that and see what happened!
9. And YES, I will be torturing my whole family and making them watch every cavity laced moment!
10. In November we are going to California and I can't wait to re-visit my husband's old stomping grounds. I love seeing where he grew up and what church and schools he went to.
11. Also in November we are going to Las Vegas for a huge automotive convention. I love all the freebies we get! My record of free pens so far is 197! Folks, it doesn't take much to excite me!
12. Can't wait for the changing of the leaves and the smell of autumn.
13. Going home tonight and reading everybody else's TT!

Great List! 22 years that is wonderful! Happy Anniversary! I liked Donnie & Marie but I also love the Osmond brothers when growing up. Watched Andy Williams just to see them sing! LOL

Thanks for stopping by and visiting today. Happy Thursday!

Our church just hired our sr. pastor last March after a 3 year search for him. We were REALLY hurt by our previous pastor, and this pastor ... a total healing process. Good luck in your search.

Thanks for stopping by my TT!

I can't wait until fall either. Coming home with a surprize? Let's hope it isn't a stray or a new lawn mower. -M

Great list! Our church is just celebrating the first anniversary of our new senior pastor. God sent him to us after 32 years of our beloved former pastor's ministry. It's been quite a change to get used to, but we love him and God has really blessed our church. I pray that will be true for yours, too!

My TT is up, too:

197 free pens!!!! That's awesome. It doesn't take much to thrill me, either. I LOVE freebies... even cheap freebies. I guess what I'm sayin' is I love free junk ;)

Have fun in California! And I hope the surprise from your hubby was a stray ;) Happy (early) Anniversary!

Happy T13! My list's up, too.
