Praise Party!

Let me just start this by saying that little "I" and I have had many a praise dancing parties in our bedroom. I think the little man was just so overjoyed that there are other people who are just as weird as his mother.
In my previous post I told you about our wonderful weekend and visitor, but that was just the beginning. We loaded all the fam up in the "Louise" (my car's name) and headed to Houston to Anointed Faith Family Church. Sounds good already, doesn't it?

My step mom, Daina, was singing her first solo at church and we were there with bells on. I have mentioned Daina before, but I wanted to tell you a little about her. You know that verse that says, "He who finds a wife, finds a good thing." Well my dad not only found a good thing, he found a GOOD THANG! She by far brings out the best in him, they are a wonderful compliment to one another and they keep everyone laughing around them.

Its not easy being a step mom, but she does such a great job. I cherish her more than words can express and we are so blessed that she is a part of her family.

Daina's church was so much fun. It was 2 1/2 hours of pure soul praisin'. My cheeks hurt from smiling and laughing so much. Their preacher was really genuine, preached the WORD, and everyone made us feel a part of the family.

The kids had had VBS of sorts the week before and so they showed off their choreographed praise dance for the congregation. My mom took Isaac up to the front because she said that he liked it so much. I'm so thankful my mom came and even more grateful that Daina and my mom are friends!

I included some video for you to see Daina. She did such a great job! She is the beautiful lady in the front with the brown suit on. I wish I would've gotten a longer video, but I felt bad for videoing in church.

That's awesome. Since I'm not from the South I've never experienced a rock'in, soulful worship service like that. Love it!
