Random Tuesday Thoughts - Rocket Ships and Family Dinners

Hip, hooray, it's Tuesday!  That means Random Tuesday Thoughts, hosted by Stacy Uncorked.  Go ahead and link up at her blog if you'd like to join along. 
-------------------------
Friday Jason and I, along with Adam, joined up with over 500 other members of the church for a night of music and worship.  The One Concert was amazing, and it was so good to get together with fellow believers to sing and lift our hands in praise.
------------------------
Speaking of church, The Crossing is a multi-site church with nine campus locations.  Recently, they've started The Crossing Inside which provides live sermon feed to prisons.  This last Sunday, Jason and I worked alongside another couple to launch a pilot program for The Crossing Inside at a treatment addiction center.  Thirteen residents live at the center, and nine attended the first Crossing Inside there.  Our discipleship pastor was so impressed that he has requested we do it on a regular basis.  So, it seems, I will be spending my Sunday mornings at a treatment center helping with communion and prayer time.  I'm both nervous and excited about it.
-----------------------------
My mom with her puppy, Precious, at the family dinner.  Since my mom now lives with me, she doesn't get to see Precious as often.  It was a happy reunion.
 
Looks like our regular family dinners are back on track.  Another one was held this Sunday afternoon at my sister's house.  There was tons of food and good company.  Hope we can keep getting together often as a family.
--------------------------------------

 Allyson has been kicking butt with her Clean Eating lifestyle.  She's been at it for a few months now and is in a much better stage of life.  I love seeing her so happy.
---------------------------
My husband noticed the other day that the shadow made by my patio umbrella in the dark resembles a "rocket ship".  Yeah, I'll leave it at that.
----------------------------
Happy RTT!

I think it's awesome that you are doing a pilot program at the treatment center. I think it's amazing that nine people showed up!

Sounds like your church is doing some great things! How cool you'll be helping on Sunday with communion and prayer time at the treatment center! Very cool!

Love that picture of your mom and Precious - great she was able to be reunited for a visit. :)

Allyson not only looks happy, she's even more beautiful!

That's funny about the umbrella shadow looking like a rocket ship - my mind is in the gutter so my first impression was...um, not a rocket ship. >;o)~

Oh yeah it does look like a rocket. Lol!
I a new used fridge the other day. I was trying to open the door to put my food in it.The door opens the wrong way.The indent is on the right side.The reason its the wrong way is because its in a really small kitchen and next to the wall. Im disabled so its really hard to open the fridge. Going to have them turn door right way.
I love your moms dog!
