We bring them in and DeAngelo quickly tells me how much he likes our house. He comments on our double oven and commented that is so neat you can use one for dinner and one for cookies. He asked me how big our t.v. was cause you know it has to be big for March Madness Basketball:) I tell him and he tells me his mom has one that she pays $50 a month for in rent and that is almost paid for.
It really showed m how blessed I am to raise my girls in a house with a yard where it is safe.
The second time was tonight at church. Mike spoke to our young adult ministry which is like young 20-30 somethings who are single and I am so not in the crowd so it is funny when someone asks me "how long have you been coming to the porch?" and I say that I have 3 kids and have been married for 9 years. Anyways, I was picking the girls up from childcare and their are a few divorced parents that attend. A mom was picking up her 4 kids and told me how great Mike did tonight. She has a 6,4, 2, and 1 year old. I ask her how long she has been coming to Watermark and she says 2 months. She said the single parent ministry is what brought her and that her husband left her with 4 kids and she is now living with her parents. They are sending her back to school. I just cannot imagine having 4 kids all by myself without Mike. It is amazing what draws people to Watermark, but one thing for sure is that it is authentic and they feel loved like Christ would love them.
