Weekend Wrap-Up

On Saturday morning, I was cleaning off the front of our refrigerator and started thinking about how I really hoped to find a way to display the photos of our Compassion International children.   When we sponsored our first child, I stuck her picture up on the fridge with a magnet.  As our Compassion family grew from one to six, and as we received photos from the gifts we sent and drawings from them, the refrigerator started to look cluttered and unkempt.

So, the girls and I headed off to a Flea Market and some yard sales later in the day and I was so happy to find a set of new picture frames, each one slightly different, for a quarter a piece.

HPIM3111 Exactly what I was wanting at a price I couldn’t pass up!

I started writing another round of letters for the kids.  For this round, I am going to write about my experience at Kingdom Bound and the joy of seeing so many children find sponsors.  I’m also writing about our church’s baptism picnic, which was yesterday, and sharing the passages from Matthew about John the Baptist baptising Jesus.  I found some corresponding coloring sheets online and have to choose which one to send and print them off. My goal is to have all of the letters finished and have the package ready to mail by Wednesday.

I am looking forward to a week without a lot of pressing plans and places to be.  I plan to tackle some around-the-house projects that need some attention. I’d also love to (dare I say it?) relax a little. I hope you all had a great weekend!
