EdTech Training and Scripture

An update from the Queen of multitasking..currently being drawn to a few verses as I'm a little overwhelmed these days... .in a nutshell at this moment I'm supposed to be listening to the trainer however,  I'm adding all my apps to a new device and this is basically a test to make sure my blogger app is loading correctly because that's important.  So I'm in this EdTech Training again receiving our new devices with my posse, lol.... (blessed with the best coworkers around) but sorry Apple, the iPads are a thing of the past  and we're getting the new Dell (tablet/laptop) ..as thrilled as I am with this one since in order to be up to date with technology and productive, kids need to have keyboards, flash drive capabilities etc ..as usual though,  my mind is a million miles away ... as we're training,  I'm planning my life and getting organized and then I'm reminded of Proverbs 21:5 "the plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance..." I'm depending on it!  And then He gives me another one and I'm especially counting on it... my favorite page in the Bible James 1:2-4 to be real in my life because I'm in trials of every kind and being tested, but having full faith to be complete, lacking nothing with Him.
Guess I'll try and focus... When is lunch?!

Children Of The Day

I've unofficially promoted Beth Moore for years having participated in and/or led all of her Bible studies.... I am jealous of her thirst for the word .  Children of the Day is her upcoming study on I and II Thessalonians and excitedly I have been selected to be a part of the Launch Team.... Stay tuned for more information right here on my blog, facebook,  twitter,  Pinterest or Instagram on this study in the coming days!


Zoo Day

Did I tell you we love the zoo, i really can't explain it other than to say we sit with gorillas and monkeys for over an hour. The colors thrill us, the sights and sounds mesmerize us and to share a day at the zoo with my children means the world to me. Today we share the zoo with Alex' girlfriend, bless her heart she has never been to the zoo. She's had a "deprived childhood" according to Emily. For us, the perfect day is a day spent in the zoo or on the beach. This stage of life I'm in, this empty nest phase... by far it is my least favorite and the toughest part of life up to this point...I see more zoo days ahead in the near future.

If you're anything like me you've already picked out your planner for the new year, began filling in important dates, evaluated 2013 and created lists for 2014.

Sitting here tonight though, in a house filled to the rim with teenagers I've found my quiet place (it's been calling me) in front of the tree I'm not quite ready to let go of...realized I'm still holding on to Christmas.

Find a quiet place, take a deep breath, remind yourself of what's important and let's graciously bow out of 2013 and like a southern lady at an oyster roast who's never met a stranger stroll into 2014!

Wings and Roots

There are two gifts we can give our children, one is roots and the other is wings. I have a little obsession these days with nests and feathers.

The Unveiling of a New Ministry...AME

"AME" stands for A Ministry of Encouragement and is designed to serve the Pastor's Wives and Women Who Serve In Ministerial Roles in the Churches of the Savannah Baptist Association

This ministry has been a work in progress for the last several months for Dorcas and myself, we have had you all close to our hearts and the goal is to create a place where Pastor's Wives and the women who serve in ministerial roles in the churches in the Savannah, Georgia area can Encourage One Another, Connect With One Another and Focus on Him. Be patient as we are prayerfully creating network opportunities.
Our "AME" is to be A Ministry of Encouragement for each other.
 
Our first event will be held July 27th at 10:00 am at the BCM on the Armstrong Atlantic Campus.
 
 Please help us spread the word and hope to see you there!
Contact me, Amy Waddell for more information at amyhwaddell@gmail.com

Hygiene Boxes For Easter

Easter Sunday we will be sharing gifts with our friends at Forsythe Park...we're putting together hygiene boxes. Join in and Help if you can, all donations are needed! Contact me with questions ...Also, you could join us in the park if you'd like to help pass them out. Our goal is 350 boxes! 

This is the list of items for the Hygiene boxes for the Forsythe Park ministry with People Helping People of Savannah and the Oasis Center, which is a ministry of the Savannah Baptist Center Hopefully you can make a box and bring it on or before Easter Sunday...these items are just a suggestion and there is no "wrong" item.
 
Also pray about putting a personal note or card or maybe even a devotion in your box.  These boxes will be given out as gifts on Easter Sunday, I envision an ocean of people receiving their box, sitting down under a tree, opening their gift and reading a letter/card from a precious person letting them know they are prayed for.

My World

You know that feeling when you just can't wait to get home.... We'll that's how I feel about this place... If I can just get to my classroom with my kiddoes, then all is well on the planet.


Parenting isn't for sissy's...

Had a strange, emotionally draining day yesterday.... Emily (away at college) is sick, they think she might have mono.... Kyle Jr (senior year being looked at by football recruiters) had surgery for a broken thumb and Alex (the baby) got his drivers license, he wanted to drive by himself in Savannah to the gym after football practice.... Oh Lord, this day was almost too much to handle.. I literally thanked Jesus out loud when I put my face on my pillow that it was over... Parenting isn't for sissy's!
