Sickness and Senior Sunday

For the last week I have been sick. I mean really sick. It seems I have a full fledged sinus infection. I decided yesterday that I would not sing in church because my throat was so incredibly sore and it was really hard to be completely silent because today was one of my favorite Highland Sundays. Today we celebrated our 48 graduating seniors with a service that was entirely planned by them. Our worship leaders were Steven Moore and Mark Hadley. It was entergetic and a lot of fun, so as you can see, I was very sad that my voice would simply not cooperate. One really touching part of the service to me was when Nicole Pollock, a radiant young woman who has been confined to a wheelchair all of her life, was presented with her Senior Bible. At this point in the service, the three Huddle Leader couples came down off of the stage and surrounded her with hugs and warm wishes. I was a total wreck! I tend to be highly emotional during this particular Sunday, that is not to say that I can't turn tearful at the drop of a hat! I was richly blessed today in the midst of my sniffles and sore throat to know that God was in our midst and that He would provide a hedge of protection around this amazing Class of 2005. Be blessed today.

I know you do not know me, but it seems that we read many of the same blogs. I came across yours and read the Gilmore Girls post, I love that show. I bought season 3 and watched all of it in 10 days, yes, thats right, I obviously don't have much to do! From reading your comments on other blogs, you encourage and inspire me to live a life worthy of Christ everyday! Thank you for your wonderful words of encouragement to others and to me. God bless you! Tiffany Browder
