"The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

Thankful Thursday - I heart FBC Anna!

Werley Family Fall 08

Last night our church put on an incredible fall festival on our church grounds and I just have to say that after walking away from the event I was so proud of our church and all the wonderful people who serve to make a night like that happen. It was amazing! And I have been to many fall festivals at churches - big and small. There were hundreds of people in attendance and it was so well organized and just plain fun! We have almost been at this church a year and the things the Lord is doing here has WAY surpassed our original expectations. We love the staff and their precious families that we serve beside and even on the hard days we feel so blessed to be at such a wonderful place. It is an incredible privilege to watch people begin a relationship with the Lord and fall in love with Him - sometimes all over again. People here have such servant's hearts and we talk to people weekly where they tell us how God is moving in their lives, their marriages, their families, and their jobs. We just want to make much of Jesus and His glory! Thank you FBC Anna for letting us be a part of your lives and for calling Andrew to come and be your pastor! here are some pics from last night:
At the end of the night Andrew stepped on stage to have some fun with our worship band. And Austin too of course. He goes everywhere daddy goes!
This is our sweet children's minister Mrs. Carla. We love her! Great job last night!
Me with my 2 ladybugs. So fun!
Sweet Audrey
Austin in his adorable lion costume. Such a cutie!

I also just wanted to take a minute to publicly tell my amazing hubby how proud I am of him! (Did you know October is pastor appreciation month?!) I wish all of our Waco, Houston and Nac friends could see him "pastor." (Anyone is welcome to come and visit! Or you can download his sermons here.) The Lord has truly gifted him in shepherding and teaching the Word. We have grown so much since we have been here and we are having a blast. Babe, thanks for being my pastor and the spiritual leader of our family. I love worshipping and serving our Savior with you!
