I have been drafted.

I opened my mouth today. We went to lunch with some fellow members of our church today, and we were discussing the plans to turn the "barn" into the new sanctuary. We are running out of room in our current building, and this body is less than a year old. Glory to God. So, I ask a couple of questions, made a couple of suggestions and the next thing I know I am on the Building Maintenance and Construction Committee. So I show up for the meeting, and I am the only FEMALE among men that ranch and construct. I don't know a crowbar from a pipe wrench, but hey I do know about Faux Finishes and that was good enough for the pastor. Evidently I did ask some good questions and make some good suggestions, because no one escorted me from the meeting, and there was no hair on the floor when it was over.

One of the men did ask about maintaining the grounds around the building. Lord please don't make me mow. And another stated that was taken care of. Thank you Jesus.

So, if you ever join us for services and something isn't quite square, please just ignore it, more than likely it was just me trying to construct. Do you think I'll get a hard hat?

Don't you just love it when you open your mouth unexpectedly and find yourself responsible for something? =)
