Recently we had a raffle at our school to raise money for more Smart Boards. Every teacher or grade level came up with something fun they could do with the students like go ice skating or spend an afternoon making cupcakes together. Then the students bought raffle tickets for whatever they wanted. For example, my friend Candy raffled off coming over to a student's house to read them a bedtime story. :) (She teaches kindergarten.)
Anyway...one of the things that was raffled off was tickets to a gospel choir concert. The choir is made up of teachers and staff.
Fifty students won tickets to the concert and guess who is in this gospel choir? Me! There are seven of us and I think it is going to be so much fun. Today was our first day to get together and pick out the songs we were going to sing. My sweet friend Jena, one of the teachers at our school, is the minister of music at her church (her husband is the pastor)...
and she had so many songs to pick from. I can't believe that we are going to able to sing songs like Shout To The Lord and Shackles at my school!! How great is that? Since it will be after school and it is voluntary, we are able to sing whatever we want. Tell me if this doesn't make you want to sing praise to God?
Tonight was my niece, Rebeccah's, 19th birthday, so she had a big group of friends and family get together at Olive Garden to celebrate. She is a freshman at Liberty University and she is such a sweet girl with a really wonderful group of girlfriends. Here are Ashley, Laura, and Lindy with the birthday girl.
We just heard on the news tonight that it is supposed to snow 3-6 inches here on Sunday. What on earth??? It will be March! That is against the rules. No snow allowed in March! haha I just don't want to have to make up any snow days on my spring break. My tickets to NYC have already been bought! I think God may have other plans. I will let you know what happens.
