Happy Summer to you all!
So grateful for the warm temps which overall have been so pleasant in MN with the exception of a few hot and humid days (like during the Art Fair at Munsinger Gardens), it's been a great summer so far. We've also had hail last weekend and some really big ones, golf ball size and bigger in some places. Thankfully we didn't have any damage.
We had a great time with my daughter and family as my granddaughter Hannah was playing softball tournaments. So it's been fun watching her play as we don't get to see her often with them living so far away. This was her last softball tournament as she will be going on to college after the summer vacation ends. So proud of her and excited for her new adventure in life!
Hopefully you all can enjoy your summer days, vacation, sport activities, fishing or just hanging out in the back yard, or even getting some yard chores done (which we still need to do by the way)!
Lots of activities are planned for August....so on to the upcoming events!
Date: August 6, 19, 26, 2019
Event: WOW Bible Meet / Music /Lesson
Place: Various Homes (Gloria's this time)
Contact us for location information!!!
Our women’s group has decided that we will continue to meet during the summer instead of taking a summer break and those of us who are around and available will get together to meet, pray, study the Word or just fellowship.
August 6 we will meet at Sauk Rapids Municipal Park at 11:30 am!
*Liquid Assets is closed as of Saturday July 20 to prepare for new ownership. However in the meanwhile a new owner has bought the business and hopes to have Liquid Assets back open again mid-August under the same name as always. We hope that they will continue to open their doors for our bible study group to meet in the meeting room on Tuesdays. For now we will meet at individual WOW ladies homes, or in the park weather permitting. So if you are interested to attend, please contact us. (You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org)

With the upcoming events for NotesNBling, I continue to create new designs which will also soon appear in my Etsy Shop besides just being on my Facebook page. Which reminds me.... I do need to update all photos into albums on my Facebook page as well with prices and descriptions so you guys can find the items easier than just the photos on my newsfeed.... Yeah, lately the computer work is taking a back seat... :D Here are some photos of the latest projects.... email me if you like something! 'Like' my page NotesNBling on Facebook!
Praise report and update on my brother-in-law Kent. He is doing much better and is home and ready to tackle the next adventure in his life! Thank you Jesus! We are still waiting for some other test results, but at least he is feeling so much better! Thank you so much for praying for him and please continue!
Thank you also for praying for us as we have pretty much every weekend booked with events in August. We are looking forward to them, but they do take their toll on the energy levels.
Music wise, I'm going to be playing more around the home front and in smaller settings such as my women's WOW Group, playing at the Hospice house, Life group, bible studies and The BURN 24/7 Central MN. Of course if someone would like me to come and play out of town, I'll be sure to make that happen :)
Well, that's all for this update. Wanted to get it out on time....otherwise all the events be done before I'll sit down to type the Music Notes, haha.
Know you are blessed, stay in a mindset of hopefulness and faith,

Psalm 100 Scripture
1 Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth.
2 Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing.
3 Know that the LORD Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.
5 For the LORD is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting And His faithfulness to all generations.
