Spring 2008





The neighbors little guinea is sitting on eggs in my garden. And a mother wren built her nest in our garage. The babies left the nest last night. One was afraid to leave this window area. The orange and yellow snapdragons came back from last year.


This has been the most beautiful spring! The flowers are blooming, perennials have grown bigger than ever. I haven't been able to work in my garden as much as I would normally enjoy. What a joy it is to see plants grow and bloom without my assistance!


It reminds me of the scripture, consider the lilies, they neither toll nor spin, but even Soloman in all his glory was not arrayed like them, anyway, we are not supposed to worry, God will take care of us.

AWANA Closing

video

This is the video that Steve took with his camera.

Special Moments!





Andrea, Steve, Veronika presented Violet at church and we prayed that Violet would be raised to know the Lord!
Veronika and Violet are so sweet together.

Veronika & Violet


I am working backwards on the events of the last month. I uploaded Andrea and Steve's pictures to my computer so that I could blog some of their pictures.
This is their first week or so at home with Violet. Veronika is such a sweet big sister!
I love this picture of them out in front of their house.
Aunt Paula rushed out to get door hanging, sign and ballons to welcome Violet home.

Another Surprise Party


Andrea's birthday is May 8. Steve wanted her to have a surprise party. I told him we had never surprised Andrea.
And we still can't, she was not surprised, but I think she did have a good time. We actually celebrated Paula's, Andrea's and Amanda's birthday, or at least I did. I gave them all their presents. I do not like to have to wait for giving presents.
I like any excuse for getting together with my kids and grandkids. The guys grilled, Paula made the cake, I cook the side dishes.
We had rain and storms, but thankfully, no tornados, so it was a good night.

Awana Closing

video

Sunday night we had our AWANA closing. This year was great. Amanda, Andrea, Paula, and our friend Julie Mayberry helped out in our Wednesday night class. We had 9 kids this year. And many nights we had extra pregnant Moms hanging out with us. And we had three of those Moms have their babies and bring them also. What a room full.

It was a pretty crazy room full. But I think the kids learned about the Bible, said some memory verses, learned new songs and pretty much had a good time.

I really love teaching this class. I have been working with the "pre-cubbies" for 5 years. I have gotten to know so many people, parents and their children. And the other teachers.

I consider it a blessing to me to be able to do this ministry.

Amanda was in charge of music. I love this song they do, kneel and pray, they kids love it!
