Say "YES!" to God's call.
When He calls, He always enables.

Cooking Out

Last Saturday, after working out in the yard , we let the kids cook hotdogs out in the yard. We had to dodge a few raindrops, but the kids are now addicted. Our grown sons Jay (who got engaged this week) and Everett stopped by to join us.
Take a look at that view. Isn't it gorgeous? And we live in town !! We live in the most beautiful place in the world.
I was in high school before I traveled anywhere that there was this much empty land. I was raised in the Northeast and used to believe in the myth of overpopulation. Now I have traveled across the country, done some reading and have a different opinion.

Big Thanks to Maddie and Sophie !!!

When Andy was in the hospital, Maddie and Sophie (who were also adopted from China) sent him an exciting box of things to play with. Sophie had brain surgery shortly before Andy, so they understood some of the hardships of being in the hospital.

They made some beautiful pictures, that are now hanging on Andy's bedroom wall. Most importantly however, they prayed faithfully for Andy !! Thank you, Maddie and Sophie !!

P.S. Their family will be going back to China soon to bring home a little boy - if anyone has some spare frequent flyer miles I'll let you know how to get them to them.....Catherine
