The youth ministry (matchbox ministries) is blessed to have a photographer who takes thousands of photos of the youth ministry and every church ministry - every week. He captures those still small moments and moments of celebration! I love this image of the band's instruments in sillouhette.
Friday night was the Office Party to introduce three sisters (their youngest sister couldn't make it) to others in the youth ministry. A dozen of us hung out eating sloppy joes, munching on chips, sipping Dr. Pepper, and watching episode after episode of The Office (Seasons Two and Three). We laughed so loud and so long, I about lost my voice by morning.
My mom wants to watch the Office to see what all the fuss is about. I mentioned that for girls, it's the interaction between Pam and Jim.... captured here (as you see one of the girls sitting as close as possible to the TV because most of us were talking through the show... Volume was at 100. and we still couldn't hear!)
Saturday was quality time with one of my junior high girls (Elena), time at the gym, then running the computer for the rehearsal and the evening service at church.
Sunday was a great youth service, more quality time with some of my girls, then a Girls Night with the four sisters (Carolyna, Erin, Elly and Jenny) where we watched Signs (I had never seen it) and giggled and talked. We left "mysterious" messages on a friend's facebook wall...which thoroughly confused him. We giggled some more. And talked. A lot.
I must confess that three of the girls and I are (heads hanging low).... (whispering) "addicted to Facebook". There. We've admitted it. We don't want to..but we have. Or rather, I have for us all. We love getting updates on friends, and getting messages from friends, and posting photos to share and also viewing other peoples photos. We get to join groups that reflect our quirkiness and send "flair" to each other that reminds us of inside jokes. We hear funny lines in a show or a movie and instantly confer with each other, "Yes...that WOULD be a good Facebook status line.... hmm."
Whew. Feels good to share that. Now I gotta go. Facebook is waiting for me to update my status with something witty and wonderful.
