It has been a bit busier here this week and I didn't get to read all the posts written by my friends here in blogland. I hope a can get caught up soon (right after I clean the toilets and strip the beds)! So until I can get caught up with all of you and what's been happening in your lives here is a little glimpse into mine.
What I've Been Thinking: At least a thousand things have been floating through my head and about three-quarters of them have gotten lost in the great unknown! One of them that I was able to keep track of was that I want to get my children more involved in ministering to the ladies and gentlemen at the nursing home where my grandmother resides. I know that the residents really enjoy seeing my children and talking with them. I think it will help build compassion and social graces in my children as well.
What I've Been Doing: We delivered Valentines to the residents at the nursing home and to the widows in our neighborhood yesterday. It was a fun experience for the boys and they enjoyed bringing smiles to the ladies and gentlemen whom they gave to. I also have been enjoying spending some time with my sister Marisa, nephew and niece who are here for a weekend visit. I got the opportunity to have a young (teenage) girl, from my church, over for an afternoon of crocheting. It was a relaxing time that we both needed and we enjoyed working on a new project together.
What I've Been Dreaming: I'm still dreaming of spring and probably will be for the next month! I made out my seed order for my vegetable garden and will be anticipating its arrival in the mail.
What I've Been Praying: This could be an extra long list so I will pick only a couple of things to talk about.
- I've been praying for a young mother who's husband died right before Christmas. She has 3 young daughters and is in deepest sorrow right now.
- I've also been praying for the physically needy in our church.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend with you loved ones. God Bless each of you!
