First of all, I think I need to clear something up!!!!! You know how the "written" word can be taken one way when it is truly meant another - well, after reading over my last blog, I think I need to just make sure that the readers (all 2 of them!) are clear on my meanings!!
I LOVE Christa to death and was in no way implying that she was being obstinate or ornery regarding the way we have Christmas. Does that make sense?? She was being a nut and I was being one in posting about her thoughts and wishes but I certainly don't want to leave the impression that she wasn't being "nice" to her future in-laws!!! So I hope that clears things up!!!
Now for the funnies - since you weren't there, you probably won't understand or think that this was remotely funny but we sure did have fun with it. I have read several other blogs that lead me to believe that several "attended" Hobe Sound Bible Church by way of the Internet yesterday so if that is the case, (or if you were actually there in the AM), you know that one of the things that Pastor preached about was being a servant. Seriously, it was a great message but it led to some humor in our house. We got home and we were fixing Sunday dinner (such as it was) and Dave did something for one of the girls and someone - I don't remember who - yelled out that Dad was being a servant. He immediately acted quite dejected and responded that you don't get servant points when it is blatantly pointed out like that. The rest of the afternoon was spent off and on in quite a bit of jest along this train of thought. Someone did something nice and it was immediately pointed out quite loudly to the rest of the family in hopes of keeping everyone else's "servant points" to an all-time low!!!!! As I was getting ready for bed last night, I couldn't help but think that if the Pastor knew what we had done to his message, he would probably throw up his hands in despair!! This was one family that seemingly missed his point!!!! I am sure that when his better half "dishes" out the latest "news" from blogland to her husband this week, I think my family will have just made his week unbelievable!!!!!!!!
