A Beautiful Day

It has been rather busy around here as you can imagine, I am sure everyone is busy getting ready for the family gatherings that are to come.

Today we watched the kids in church perform their program, it made my heart leap with joy when the lil wee ones came on and sang their songs! They were so proud and for being all of three and four, they did an amazing job! I remember my own when they were that little, they all had their share of being in one church production or another.....and another!

The older kids put on a lil skit about being too busy.......struck a chord in all the adults hearts! I think we do tend to get too busy that we forget or miss our opportunities to help, encourage, pray for someone or even to just hear God as He quietly tries to get our attention.

Today was our family dinner day, since I do work every other weekend we try to have a Sunday meal with the kids every other Sunday. I made sticky lemon chicken and champs. It was very good and everyone enjoyed the meal.

Jessica had to leave early from our meal time to help the church as they were filling bags of food for some orphanges in Haiti, she enjoyed spending her time by helping the church and also by helping these poor kids who don't get enough to eat. I am so thankful that our children are very generous in giving......they don't give a second thought to reaching out if someone needs help.

Well that is it for now, time to do a little crocheting, I am creating snowflakes!
