Dear friends and family,
Fine.......That was all it took to get a loved one to call me back. Time passes with some as there was no yesterday and all is picked back up as though it was never lost and others, well.... time interupts and changes things. Sometimes when you don't hear from someone it is for a reason and it may be when they need you the most. Call your loved ones, do whatever it takes to make a difference and show them you care.
Tonight we have Blessings in a Backpack and what a difference that makes in the lives of children. We send home over 7 items for the weekend for them to eat and enjoy which will get them to school on Monday where they have an opportunity to eat breakfast. Hard to believe that some children don't eat any or not much from Friday to Monday. We are so blessed that we may not have the choices we want but there is always enough. Please pray for the over 950 children that will recieve a blessing this weekend and every weekend until school is out. We still need about 400 sponsors that are willing to donate $80 a year for the program.
Tomorrow night Atlee and I will go on a journey together at the Secret Keeper Girls Live event in Huntsville. Way cool! I can't wait for her to like me better.....If you get a chance to find an adventure for your children, please do. They only have one today. We don't get a second chance at today but you can make a better tomorrow.
Ian is doing great and still has a girlfriend. Ariel is her name and he has said that she "love likes" him. He has already asked her to the prom. WOW! What can I expect next? We are teaching our children to give instead of share and short of his LEGOS, he has given her his everything.
Brody, well that another story......this morning he had a fit getting on the bus. We stopped and took a minute to pray. Boy did that make a difference. He stops crying and listens to the prayer. So sweet. I try not to let yucky mornings shape my day and pray them away for Brody. We ask that you include us all in your daily prayers.
God is good ALL the time, if you let him. Don't let go of his hand in your life or the hold he has on your heart to be self seeking. We do a better job with him at our side.
Blessings to you this week,
