"Thank you Mike C"
The way I felt this past weekend can be
summed up in the adage, 'Idle hands are the Devil's playground'. I was
left alone, and I just felt the acid rain come down on me. I knew I was
okay, I just wanted 'back up'. Even writing the letter, before anyone
would see it or respond I felt uplifted.
I've seen others refer
to Five Doves as their 'Church' &/or 'Newspaper'...that's how I
feel too. I literally call this my 'Bible study' when I mention my
'online time' here.
Thank you all so much.
I am going to
be busy the next few days and thru the weekend, just wanted to let
everyone know that I'll be thinking about all my Dove Family...please
keep us in prayer too. We work a game booth at out local renaissance
faire, trying to offer family friendly activities amongst some very
dark stuff. It's our 21st year, and I am not really feeling up to
'working', but my kids have grown up there, and we've almost looked at
our little place as a 'light in the darkness'. We don't openly try to
be a ministry, we're just 'there'. I had some problems with some of the
organizers since I complained against some behaviors that were not only
sanctioned by these people, but they were actively involved in...they
made an attempt to black list me. No one wants a 'goody two shoes'
Christian MOM mucking up their 'fun'. heh. Funny thing tho, I just got
off the phone with the new head of the city rec dept, and she mentioned
her Pastor friend wanting to incorporate historical song and facts, and
one of those above mentioned people shooting the idea down. I'm hoping
she 'cleans house' and we can get the event even more family friendly!
So, please think of me and mine as we go into the world and pray I keep
my temper in check...I get so riled up, (I call it 'momma claws')...I
know I'm not a good representative of The Body when I allow myself to
Okay, gotta get to work. Again, thanks to everyone for the prayers, it was like a spring rain....with muscles! lol.
