Gone are the days where I can have a lie in until silly o'clock in the afternoon and catch up on some well needed rest. even when Youngling is spending extra time with his Daddy Doo I still find myself waking up early and have a ton of things to tick off my To-Do list.
This weekend just gone would have been a waste if I had spent it all in bed, it was utterly gorgeous out. Instead of lazing around I became little miss proactive on Saturday morning.
As some of you may know I am starting a Sunday school/ Sunday club at my Church in a bid to encourage new families to come along to our services and keep the Church growing. I fear that if we don't then there wont be a future for the Church which would be a great shame indeed.
The Vicar invited me to go to St. Albans and look around the resource centre which was having a 50% off sale before they close down. Even Churches and their resource centres aren't exempt from the state of financial difficulty we face as a country.
Well how could I resist the sound of a sale and yes I realise the comic connotation of having tea with the Vicar ;-) naughty readers.
I bought some fantastic books to guide myself and any of the volunteers in running our new project. There was even a CD Rom filled with 500 odd clip art images which we can print out and encourage the children to colour, stick and glue and use to tell the stories. There was also a book with a CD with lots of songs for me to learn eek. Need to try that brain training game and increase my memory me thinks.
I found the volume of guides, different Bibles etc to be a tad overwhelming. However I did find two books which I thought would help me and my own faith though I didn't realise it was a cash only shop and I didn't have the heart to invoice the Church and owe them. How awkward would that have been. One book was called: All Stitched Up by Alice Stille looked full of Wit and Wisdom For Today's Women. Right up my alley.
The second book was: Being A Christian by Stephen Arterburn which looks to answer questions on Christianity and what it means to be a Christian. Luckily these are on Amazon but I would still like to take my parents down to see the shop to grab a bargain.
I am not trying to preach don't get me wrong I am just trying to explore my own faith and understanding of the world we live in etc. Especially when I seem to be doing several things which couldn't really be considered Christian yet I am raising my son to live the Christian life. It's all rather interesting.
So what did you get up to on Saturday morning?
