Baking, baking, baking, Wow, it was a long weekend

Hah, I don’t remember when my last journal entry was…prolly thursday. Pastor Kevin spoke well for his last Friday with us, before Pastor Sandra officially takes over. His message was a good one that I hope the Youth hold on to well. Eddie lead worship with Pat and Reese on guitars, and it went really well (well other than having to learn mostly new songs, but that’s ok). We went pretty long at church on Friday, but it was good, since we had an alter call and such, and everyone was still praying for awhile.

Saturday was a long day. I got up around 9:30, and didn’t really do much until about 2 oclock, when I had to get out of the house and buy some supplies for baking later that day. Went to safeway to get the stuff, like butter, milk, brown sugar, baking powder/soda, and some supplies for my pies that I was making. Lisa was bringing over flour and sugar, so I didn’t need to worry about that. Anyways, people were supposed to come on over at around 4, but the first person didn’t show up till 5, and we probably didn’t get started cooking (well, mine was partially done at around 6), until around 6. Cooking went the whole night with people coming into the house, and we finally ended at around 12:30 (well Gordon’s wasn’t done yet, he needed to put the top on it). In the end, we had, My 2 strawberry jello pies, Lisa’s lemon mirangue (I KNOW I spelled that wrong) and a choco-pie thing, Janet’s fruit tart (which looked AMAZING), Mel’s Candy Cheesecake, Lisa Chui’s Chocolate swirled cheesecake, Gordan’s fruit cheesecake, Eric’s choclate butterscotch cookies, and Ryan’s cinnamin bread. Went to sleep a little bit after they all left, hah, I was beat from standing for 8 hours, whooo.

Sunday, I picked up Justin (since he had his cake thing) and brought the 2 strawberry pies, Mel’s cheesecake, and Ryan’s bread loaf to church. Had worship practice early, then service. Pastor Kevin talked about America, and how it was founded upon knowing God, but how we have strayed so far from that, and how we need to get back to that, with revival in our lives, then our church, then this city and nation. It was a good sermon. Afterwards, we didn’t have class, but we got to sit around and talk a bunch with each other, and try to sell the baked goods. All in all, I think it went pretty well, I’m not sure how much we raised, but I was hoping that we would be able to get about 3 people to camp with the money raised (I dream big, hah). Not sure if we reached that goal, but I prayed that the night before, whooo. So if it happens, whooo, yea God! And if it doesn’t, still, yea God! Afterwards, we went over to Evelyn’s house and just kicked it around. Some of the girls left to go shop at the Espree Outlet (which I remember so fondly, when Derek and I sat in the Van, while Hoi, Oi, Alicia, and ANDREW went in to shop, and we listened to the 49ers Championship game against the Packers (they lost that time too I believe)). That was about it for the weekend, but it felt a lot longer, hehe =P

Weird Events

Hah, that seems to be all I talk about. Just weird stuff that happens. Anyways, I woke up at 4 in the morning today, and heard strange noises, like people dropping sutff or hitting the wall or something. So anyways, it was kinda weird, cuz I was really awake, and wasn’t sure what was going on. Thought maybe it was burglars or something. I got this bat thing from under my bed and just kinda lied there for awhile. =P It was nothing (I don’t think), but I started praying for people just outta the blue, just in case of something. Wasn’t sure what it was, but if something happened at around 4:07am today, let me know, hah.

Chet Atkins SST

Lol, most of you who read this have no idea to what that title in green letters means. =P It’s a guitar! hehe, big surprise right? Well I was at guitar center today picking up some Hot Rods (drum sticks) for the youth dept. and I stopped into the acoustic guitar room for abit. Now this Chet Atkins technically isn’t an acoustic guitar…but sorta is. It’s a hollow-body, meaning that the inside is hollow (erm…duh). It has no sound hole, and holes up against feedback very well. Two very good rythm guitarist play these, and man, it’s a nice guitar! (oh, the two guitarist who play them are David Crowder, and Dave Matthews, heh, each respectively hold there own in the music worlds). =P
Anyways, the Chet that I saw was on sale for 899$ because it was used. Wow, it was nice, a nice sunburst finish, that I’ve only seen on a few Chets (David Crowder has one with a sunburst finish). It had a few small dings in it, but man, it was still nice. The strings stunk on it though, very old. I was talking to the clerk and he said that it would be released to sell in 5 days (in used equipment, they hold on to it for 30 days for police check). I could put it on layaway, but it would be 250$ down, and I would have 30 days. Hrm….could be a challenge….hehe, wonder if I should do it, haha.

current mood: listless

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! Big Events at FLCC Auto Show! (well church, hehehe)

Service went well today. We did a lot of songs though, hah, and I had to practice them all right before service during worship practice (I knew all of the, but not sure if I played all of them before). Pastor Kevin had a very good message today on being Obediant to God. I felt like he was going to do a Altar call, but was sorta surprised that he didn’t (he did ask for some hands for people that struggled with being obediant to Him). After service I had a bunch of papers I had to print up, but the computers were all acting funny, hah. Pastor Sandra had me print and deliver some papers for her while she was away, so I needed to get them out before the meeting next week. Found out the HS class had no teacher today, but I couldn’t go in and do anything since I needed to get those papers done, heh. Tim stepped in and talked about camp and hung out with them and stuff though, so it was alright.
After church we went over to Lisa Chui’s house. Hung out, played ping pong (and some CRAZY round robin style ping pong) ate pizza, and just hung out pretty much, hah. Oh and played mah-jongg. Grrr, man, I was so dumb playing mah-jongg today!! I falsely declared, not only once, but TWICE!!! aiya, so horrible.

At 5:30 at church we had a potluck dinner thing as a goodbye party for Pastor Valerie. Pastor Val was our children’s pastor at our church for about 4 years now, been awhile. It was a good gathering with fun and food, and friends. 3 Fs, whooo. hehe. A few of the kids were playing around with me left and right. Pastor Kevin has the cutest kids though, they go in the order of Matthew, Nicholas, Andrew, and Cameron. Cute kids, hehe. Nick and Sara Chin were messing around with me when I was sitting there and eating. =P

I felt bad today as I was around the 280/380 intersection. It was then that I realized how easy it was for me to find parking at church, when it took Lisa Lau like 10 times around the block before she gave up and just parked in the church parking lot. I remembered that I prayed for parking right as I was in the park coming over to Fulton, but I never gave God thanks for the space once I had it. Blah, thanked Him there for it though. =) God is good, through even the little things like praying for parking spaces.
