Monday Mumblings

April is speeding by, and soon May will arrive, filled with graduations, the beginning of summer breaks, a brother's birthday, a good friend's wedding, travel, and another opportunity to take care of our friends' critters!

In the meantime it is Monday afternoon, and I'm afraid I feel rather lazy and mindless. I want to build a habit of posting here regularly, but at the moment have nothing stunning to say.

Let's see. I just came back from helping with the last day of Good News Club for the school year. I was telling the kids about Corrie Ten Boom, who has an amazing story of courage, forgiveness, and the faithfulness of God.

In a few days the lady who heads up our Club has organized a spaghetti dinner for the kids and their families. That should be exciting. I think quite a few of the kids are either Christians already or at least go to church some. But this is a great opportunity to share the gospel with their families, in the likely chance that there are some unsaved among them. Our church is generously providing space to have the dinner (and I think food as well), which is a blessing!

We might have stuffed pita bread for supper tonight. Dough is rising, but my creativity feels quite low at the moment. But God is still good. :-) Have a blessed day!

  3. Hey, Chelsa and Sierra! I hope and pray my daily posts can be interesting, informative, thoughtful, wise, and even funny. But while I practice the dilligence bit, they might be rather random like this. I always love hearing what y'all are up to, as well! :-)

    Miss Jen, I'm guessing you've read The Hiding Place, right? I read it recently with my church's Ladies' Book Club, so I was thrilled to have the oportunity to share a little of the amazing story with kids! :-)

  4. The Hiding Place is a really good book.
