I made the mistake of posting while on Vicodyn once and I wont ever do that again!!! Actually, it was only a comment I left on another blog. Next thing I know... well, never mind ,that is a story best left untold.
Sunday was a typical day here as Mother's Day is Friday, always being on May 15th here. Sunday night my husband was able to baptize 6 new converts. There was a mishap involving the baptistry though. It seems no one thought to begin filling it in time for it to be full for service, one of those times when being Baptist and practicing baptism by immersion can be a problem!
What to do? The men called the local fire department and they came out with their truck and filled the baptistry for the church! Not something you see everyday!
We had to start back to school after our week off for the trip. It is always hard to get back on track after a break. I have finally completed Jewel's high school transcripts for her college application. I also had to do a lot of work as it seems here immunization records were left behind in the file cabinet in the jungle. We were unable to get everything out and had assumed we would be able to return one day.
Monday was spent with the family. My husband made a steak for me. A HUGE steak. It was delicious. Brian,Jackie and grand daughters came over for a movie night. We had nachos and Jackie made a cheese cake.
We watched Fireproof. We had all been waiting to see this movie and we were not disappointed. I enjoyed it very much and it was well done. I admire Kirk Cameron and have for a long time. A little family secret here, but a family member of mine was a co star of his back on 'Growing Pains', until she was fired.
Fireproof had such a powerful message. We are showing it in Spanish to some couples tomorrow night here at our house as well as sharing the book 'The Love Dare' which, thankfully, is also available in Spanish.
I am curious, have any of you seen the movie?
If so, what did you think of it?

About FIREPROOF At work, inside burning buildings, Capt. Caleb Holt lives by the old firefighter's adage: Never leave your partner behind. At home, in the cooling embers of his marriage, he lives by his own rules.
Growing up, Catherine Holt always dreamed of marrying a loving, brave firefighter...just like her daddy. Now, after seven years of marriage, Catherine wonders when she stopped being "good enough" for her husband.
Regular arguments over jobs, finances, housework, and outside interests have readied them both to move on to something with more sparks.
As the couple prepares to enter divorce proceedings, Caleb's father challenges his son to commit to a 40-day experiment: "The Love Dare." Wondering if it's even worth the effort, Caleb agrees-for his father's sake more than for his marriage. When Caleb discovers the book's daily challenges are tied into his parents' newfound faith, his already limited interest is further dampened.
While trying to stay true to his promise, Caleb becomes frustrated time and again. He finally asks his father, "How am I supposed to show love to somebody who constantly rejects me?"
When his father explains that this is the love Christ shows to us, Caleb makes a life-changing commitment to love God. Andówith God's helpóhe begins to understand what it means to truly love his wife.
But is it too late to fireproof his marriage? His job is to rescue others. Now Caleb Holt is ready to face his toughest job ever...rescuing his wife's heart.
