I don't have a lot of time to expand on my thoughts tonight, but I thought you guys might have a little imput. Yesterday, out of the blue an acquaintance of mine who was about to use some choice words because of a problem with her car turned around and said to another acquaintance; "I better watch my mouth in front of the christian girl." Well both of these women call themselves Christian Belivers as well. I was almost offended by the statement....Whatcha think?

Make lots of Lemonade!
That's what we've been doing here at the Brezina house. The last few weeks have been crazy busy.Between Breezy working from 4:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. or 7 p.m Monday thru Friday, me working at the church A LOT, being a Super Momma at 7 1/2 months pregnant and trying to keep my house in some kind of order we've just be rampaged here.
Palm Sunday was our very first Sunday back in our Sanctuary after almost 6 months of renovations and having church in a confrence room. It was so beautiful and an event that the staff have all looked forward to since they told us in Jan. of our "move back in date." We had a lot of work to do to get everything in tip top shape so that services could be held. Everything went well and we were blessed to almost fill all the pews. Members that have been MIA since November when we moved were back in their "seats". I'm going to try to take some photos this Sunday.
Easter Sunday is always such a blessing to me. This year it was so special because Clark is old enough to sorta understand in preschool terms the Resurrection Story. He learned to sing Hosanna and also he'll tell you Jesus is Alive! We did give him an Easter Basket and he loved it but I can't wait for him to understand in a few years what Jesus did for us on the Cross is the TRUE gift. I had the privilege of being in Kid's Worship this Sunday and it was such a sweet, sweet thing to see some of the children literally moved to tears as my dear friend Monique and her dear husband Brian shared the Resurrection story. Our Chaplain brought a beautiful message of hope to a congregation FULL of families some old, some new and we had a combined lunch and Egg Hunt with the Catholic Congregation. It was a busy day, but such a fine time of reflection and joy.
Big Boy started playing T-Ball last week. He's on the Green team of (10) 3-5 year olds. Oh man are we in for a treat. They are too darn cute and most of them have NO idea what they are doing. We started working with Clark back in early March in hopes that he'd have the hang of it but well....he's still just as clueless as the rest. He's cute as pie none the less!!
Baby Breezy is still growing. I will be 34 weeks on Wednesday. Our plan is to deliver him via c-section in 4 weeks IF his lungs are healthy enough. The Dr. believes that he's going to be good and healthy and possibly on the larger side. I've only gained 20 pounds this far and let me tell you this little fella is running out of room. He's so active and responds anytime his daddy speaks or there is music playing. I attended Praise Band practice 2 weeks ago with Breezy and had to leave because he was actually hurting me from the inside! I am so thankful that the last Trimester thus far has been uneventful. I'm not near as tired as I thought I would be so there is a lot of progress being made in our home as we prepare for his arrival. His big brother can not wait...or so he says!
