We took Ellie to see the play Annie last night. I was VERY impressed with how well behaved she was. She sat through the whole performance, which lasted from 7:00 until 10:20 ish with only a 10 min intermission.

She especially liked the doggy, and the Christmas tree. She was so excited to watch all the singing and dancing. As well as being able to go "bye bye" with both Mommy and Daddy.

It is also so refreshing to have such lovely weather. Although, I really can't wait until it gets much warmer. We would love to be outside, but I'm afraid it's just going to get really cold again and then we will end up with more respiratory issues again. Oh well...Michigan weather...

Family's that Serve

In our church service yesterday they did foot washing. Talking about getting over yourself and serving each other...Jesus washed the disciples' feet as an example of becoming the lowest of servants. But equally important is the understanding that we must maintain a living relationship with the Head of the Body Who is Jesus Christ.

Who do we become humble to and become a servant to? This is a choice...Choosing to be a servant builds trust. How do we turn our everyday tasks into opportunities to serve and "wash each others feet"? "Washing feet" means that you have someone's back...

If you are a servant, you must let go of:
1. Power and Position - Will you give up everything? Philippians 2
2. Your Agenda - Are you willing to change your plans for the better of someone else?
3. Unforgiveness

I think one of the most touching things was watching Ellie wash her Daddy's feet. David washed and dried mine, and then I went to wash his. Ellie came up and helped us. It was sooo precious.
