~IHC, and VIP Day 2017, our mission service in Massieville~

A Happy Wednesday to you!  I really don't have time to blog, but I want to blog IHC now, then I will blog Easter, Sarah's Sweet 16th Party (Her birthday is in December, but she wanted a party in the Spring,) and GG's 95th birthday party that we are heading to TN for tomorrow!
~We were so privileged to get to go to our BELOVED IHC this year.  I must say what with all the choosing, washing, ironing, and packing of clothes... it is EASIER to WATCH IT ON LINE  ;-) ... but we were so HAPPY to get to attend in person!!!! :-)

 ~Tailgating again...with some friends who joined us. I missed getting a picture of the 5 Schmelzlen girls, and my cousin Susan and her 2 boys.  :-) ~

 ~Getting a picture for Bethany's great friend Luann.~

 ~Phillip spent a lot of IHC videoing testimonies in SPANISH of those who God had sanctified.  He will then edit these testimonies and put them online for our dear nationals to see.
Here he is with Andrew Smith, Bryon Fling, and Michael Mason.~
 ~Videoing Andrew Smith's testimony of how God sanctified him.~
 ~The youth choir getting ready to sing.  Kimberly, Sarah, Noah, and Darla sang in it, plus kids from our church.~
 ~The trio was Clarissa Manley, Logan Sankey, and our niece Darla.~
 ~Cousins sitting together during the evening service...and coloring.  This brings back a TON of memories...for Susan and I.  Every IHC Susan, Martha, Esther and I would sit together during IHC and play school and color.~

 ~Susan helping entertain Abigail...which was a great relief.  You see, I was in a great deal of pain.  I had had my shoes off and kicked my toe on the bleachers and knocked my baby toenail off. :-( ~

 ~We enjoyed worshiping with the dear people at the Massieville Household of Faith!!~

 ~Many of you may have seen this on FB...but if not, Look what Jesus did for Me! 
God is beyond awesome!!!!
I was in Walmart and saw the boys dressy spring sets and really wanted to get one or two for Elijah. But I was praying,
"Lord, I don't really have the extra $19.97 to get one let alone two."
As I was standing there trying to decide what to do ...the lady came up and told me they had JUST BEEN MARKED DOWN to $1.75 each!!!!!!
So I bought every color they had in his size for Elijah! (Plus 4 for twin boys at our church)

 ~Happy ANNIVERSARY to our Dear Michael and Beth!!!~

We are heading to my sweet niece Brittany's Jr. Recital tonight, then to Church and out with the Carters, and then heading to TN tomorrow to get ready to celebrate Grandmother who is turning 95 on Saturday!!  :-)  #WHENWILLLIFESLOWDOWN   #BUTI'MENJOYINGLIFE #GODGIVEMESTRENGTH!  :-D
