Another week, and the New Year is rapidly moving along..
and there's always some extra events that make me smile.
I have only one sister....we are about 12 years apart.
She's busy with her young family, and I'm busy with my adult children.
She called tonight and we can cover a large territory in a quick hurry.
And yet we smiled, shed some tears, and felt like we understood each other.
It's just a good feeling to know that we've both been heard.
Two sisters sharing a tub of ice-cream!
Our church's congregation is divided into Life Groups.
We gather together to connect...develop new friendships...
help, support and encourage each other to grow in relationships with God.
This week we were challenged by a chapter in Ann VosKamps' book,
"One Thousand Gifts"
She challenges us and dares us to live fully right where we are.
We always end our evening by sharing the day to day battles and praise items.
This week it felt like we were an ER ward: as we listened to the concerns, hurts and pains.
It's wonderful when we can come together and share knowing that we have a common faith.
Better yet, is when praise items are sent via email during the week,
confirming God's goodness and answers to our prayers.
A nice long chat to an old time friend...just talking, pondering, giggling.
We are both feeling some excitement in the air....
A visit by Mario and friends.
What an exciting afternoon when this little fellow showed up.
He's full of action, jokes and smiles.
He'll keep you on your toes.
Today this little fellow (Mario) insisted on calling me "Princess Peach."
I was actually quite flattered,
and looked her up on line....
now I know, only to well, that I too can be a Princess.
