Happy Birthday to our Church! This is our Birthday! It would not be right to celebrate without a cake, right?! A red cake with red sprinkles at that! Oooohhh...my kids will be so excited to see it! I'm going to try to make it right now before they all come back from the park. I have lesson plans that I should be doing right now...and I am on the computer right now instead uploading these pictures!
This morning at mass, we all dressed in red in someway. My hot hubby wearing his suit, with a red tie of course! Me with my skirt with red in it, my girls in their red dresses. My boys wearing red ties-except Kid #5's red bow tie kept falling off on the way there so we left it in the car. My kid #3 did not want to wear the red tie I picked out (no shock for this kid! He has his own way of doing things-that's why we love him so!) and my Kid #1 wearing a bright red stripped shirt. I can't help but to think when this will change. When will they start to notice their crazy Momma doing this to them?!?! heee heeee! I love it! I will keep loving it and keep doing it till they want otherwise-till then, this is so fun! :)
Acts 2: 1 - 11 :
When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place.
And suddenly a sound came from heaven like the rush of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues as of fire, distributed and resting on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven. And at this sound the multitude came together, and they were bewildered, because each one heard them speaking in his own language. And they were amazed and wondered, saying, "Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? And how is it that we hear, each of us in his own native language? Par'thians and Medes and E'lamites and residents of Mesopota'mia, Judea and Cappado'cia, Pontus and Asia, Phryg'ia and Pamphyl'ia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyre'ne, and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians, we hear them telling in our own tongues the mighty works of God."
I don't think my cake will turn out to look like this one!
