Surgery, Birthday, and Girls night out

Marvin fell while skiing with friends December 27 and hurt his knee. Doctor said it was only a sprain. January8th he fell again while playing laser tag. This time it was a trip to the ER. They referred him to a specialist. Thursday he ended up having surgery. Everything went great with the injury not being as bad as the MRI had predicted. (probably had something to do with prayer) He is healing nicely and will return to school tomorrow.

Promise celebrated her 13th birthday. She is now officially a teenager, although she has acted like one for 3 or 4 years. I have a special day planned for her tomorrow, because Friday I had several appointments with Marvin to follow up on.

Tonight my sister-in -law and I had a girls night out. We saw a movie and had dinner at Chili's. Sometimes I forget how to act without my kids or Keith along. I did have a good time and hope to do it again soon.

We were really blessed in church today. God is so good. We have only been attending this church about 2 months now, but it meets our needs so well. We went to a mega church for about 7 years. The pastor is a great man of God, but a mega church and a mega family doesn't match. I had to stand in line a very long time to sign my kids in and out of children's church. I know if someone had gotten really sick the pastor would not have been able to pray for us personally and probably would not have known who we were. We attended another small church for a little over 2 years but it just wasn't what the teenagers wanted. And keeping my teenagers in church and maintaining a personal relationship between them and the Lord is very important to me. During the 2 years we also visited another church for several services and found out quick it wasn't the right one. In fact it caused lots of problems within my family. So I've prayed a lot about us finding a church close to home, and one the teenagers would feel comfortable in as well as grow with the Lord in. I think I found it! The kids don't dread going, and neither do I. I also feel like I can be myself. Thank you Lord for all our blessings.
