I had a cool title...

But I forgot what it was...I do that sometimes...{{{grinning in chagrin}}}

So - I found out something I did Tuesday night at the meeting that had my Pastor laughing...apparently it was so funny it will provide much laughter in the future for when he's down. I guess when I was called up for prayer...you know how the speaker is suppose to have your attention when that happens...well, I looked over at my group right before he got started, grinning like a fool, and the preacher moved my head with his hands to face him. I don't even remember what I was thinking when I looked over there...I must have heard their laughter or something [we were a very giggly group that night and by that time we were reaching bellylaughter]. It highly amused Pastor. What's even funnier, Pastor has a different interpretation of the look I gave than Mrs Pastor...

I'm not going to be doing Kids Church anymore. the old teacher is going to come back and do it again [she had a baby]. I of course have mixed feelings about this. Seems like, you know, I just got it figured out that this is where God wants me even though I'm the most unlikeliest candidate for kids ministry...and they yank me. BUT - I was told by Mrs Pastor that she can see me being used there again in the future...as a backup for Min or if Deb looses her eyesight...but I'm not allowed to tell that to anyone and am smart enough to figure that's another "test"...so I can't even talk to my friend/mentor about it...I can only tell you guys about it...at least I think I can...don't no-one tell on me! :) I would hate to see Deb lose her eyesight, but unless God does a miracle...she is going to. And from what she's shared with me, along with what Mrs. Pastor shared...it's going to break her heart if that happens cuz she does a lot with the kids too.

Well...I have a date Saturday. we're going to meet at his sisters house, which should be safe enough since it's right across from the police office. Then we're going up and around the block to a local restaurant - like an idiot I picked the most expensive one around - can't help it...I love the food there...will have to double check and see if we're going dutch. I'm not highly opptimistic about it...for several reasons I can't share. I did talk with his sister a good bit, and there's no pressure if it doesn't "click". I saw a picture of him, and the best I could say was "he looks nice" which was a lie cuz he looked angry in the pic...eyebrows all lowered...I'm hoping it was a bad pic. At the very least I will have gotten to meet a new person and a chance to have some of that hot artichoke dip that I love at the restaurant [aren't I terrible?!?!]

ok. Ending. Talk to me peoples...

I love that line: "grinning in chagrin." Sounds like good poetry to me. ;)

Ciera said...

Rob - - - I'm a poet and I know it
though my verses seldom show it
Mostly I can't rhyme
Because I don't take the time
But once in a while
I come up with something and get a smile.

:D
