Another Milestone....Senior Prom

Another milestone passed. Mallorye attended her last high school prom Friday night and boy was it ever memorable! It started out with her hair appointment...the lady that we had booked never showed!! The salon was booked solid, but luckily was able to get us into another salon and Mallorye looked always.
Then, there was the torrential rains...these pictures were taken about an hour before the storm hit...the storm that also produced tornadoes!!

We lucked into this dress on Monday...yes, 4 days before Prom!

I love this girl....can't believe that this is her senior prom!

....and a perfect corsage! Her favorite flower in the perfect colors...very unique.

Mallorye went to Prom with some friends....Matt was at a Men's Retreat with our church....and after going to the dance for an hour, decided she'd rather be at home and was home by 10:30pm . I'm pretty proud of her. I know there were other places she could've went, but she chose to come home.

The next big milestone....Graduation...only a few more weeks away.

Worship Team

I had an absolute blast at Worship rehearsal last night! Isn't that the way worship should be? I'm so glad that I serve a God that desires to see his children in delight...having a blast for Jesus...whether its at rehearsal, on Sunday morning, or just in my everyday life..My God wants me to have fun worshipping Him...He that created this life I live.

I serve with an incredible team of talented worshippers and rehearsals are a time where we can laugh and have fun while we prepare to bring the body of Christ into an atmosphere of Worship. We record our rehearsals and I literally laughed out loud listening to it today when I heard us cutting up with each other. These guys are crazy! And I wouldn't have it any other way!!

Southside Worship Team....I love you guys :)

Change of Direction?

More than a month has passed since I've blogged. I seem to be at a point of huge writer's block...or at least ...the things I want to say are too personal, too intimate, to be shared on such a public forum.

That's really unlike me. I'm normally a transparent, lay it all out there, kinda gal...but not lately. I've found myself burrowing tightly into my cocoon, waiting for this season of life to be finished.

God is dealing with me in so many areas right now and with the deployment, my emotions are already on overdrive. So many changes have taken place in such a short amount of time, that catching my breath is a challenge.

I want to write. I need to write. It's therapy for me....and so...I'm asking you to pray for me and the direction I need to take with my blog. I don't want to be surface. If I can't be real, then I don't want to I covet your prayers in this area.

{in other hubby will be home for a 15 day leave VERY SOON}
