Have I mentioned lately that y’all are hysterical? If I ever delude myself into believing I’m somehow alone in my struggles you’ve proven me wrong once again. In offering my own confession I must tell you I’m the girl who walks in to Sunday School in that magic window between 10 and 10:15 when class is still taking role and chatting and yes, I blame it on my children. (And no, there isn’t really a magic window but if there were one in the parsonage that I could somehow climb through and be immediately in the church, that’d be awesome. Kind of like the wardrobe in Narnia without all the snow and talking beavers.)
(Stream of consciousness, anyone?)
Thank you so much to all of you who entered this give away! It’s the prayer of my heart that this little offering of mine will be an encouragement to ministry wives and a relationship builder for our churches.
And now, here are the winners (as selected by Random.org) along with how they answered, “Are you typically on time for church?” (My responses are in red. Because there were some things I just had to say.)
No, BUT… I have 5 kids under the age of 7… so between getting myself and them ready….Yeh! You get the picture…. wanna know the worst part?!!? We only leave 2 minutes (LITERALLY) from the church…. OUCH! I’m horrible! (I blame my genes! My family is always late for everything…. even their own funerals! LOL!)
Dear SuperMom, ME TOO. To all of it except the 5 kids under 7. Bless you, my sister. I bet y’all are never missing shoes are you?
I am an on time person, and I think that is due to being a musician- we were always told (and I told those under my baton) that if you’re early, you’re on time, and if you’re on time, you’re late! :)
Tara, I don’t know the kids and I could exist in the philosophy of your Universe. Unless of course we were under your baton. Do they sell child-sized versions of those somewhere? Electrified?

We have to drive one hour to church – yes, my husband is the preacher – and we’ve been late 3 or 4 times due mostly to weather conditions on the highways. That’s not too bad! Can’t wait to read your book! And even if i don’t win — i’ll still keep praying for you! How’s that? :)
Vickie, you won!! If you were going to pray for me before I’m expecting some overtime now. :) Let me just say if I lived an hour from church I’d be arriving just in time for the altar call.

I am usually on time for church my husband likes to be there early usually 2 hours early.
Jessica, my hubby is always there early. It’s so annoying.
