A reminder and a quick note


Thank you so much for your comforting words on my last post. I truly appreciate your love and am thankful for all of you! I consider you friends, and I mean that.

This is a busy week, full of many delightful things. However, we got some sad news last weekend that the son of some close family friends was killed in a car accident. How sobering and needful to be reminded that this earth is not our home. What a grievous thing it must be to bury your child. Sometimes we can't understand, but we have to cling to our faithful God. What else can we do?

I just wanted to stop in to say hello. I know I have been posting less frequently lately, but hopefully things will settle down in a couple of months. But for now, I must tackle my huge to-do list for this week. I may not get to stop in until next week, but I'll be thinking of all of you.

Just a reminder to you parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles, and friends. Christian Children's Book Review is hosting a book giveaway for the entire month of November. Trust me, you'll want to visit!!


Great Big Book Giveaway

Yes, it's that kind of time. It's a time to rejoice with rejoicing friends and to weep with weeping ones.

Don't push yourself too hard. I like that picture of Lena.

cute picture of Lena. :) I am praying for her! I am also in prayer for the family who lost their son- what a tragedy. At least the parents are believers in the Lord and can take comfort in Him.

Yes, that was such sad and sobering news about our friends. I can't even imagine their anguish.

A busy week for you, indeed! Hope it all goes smoothly! Let me know if I can do anything else.

And I will check out the book giveaway... always love to add to my "hopeful bookshelf"!!
