Thursday’s This & That

Outside the windows… rain is falling and the sky is grey.  The temps are unusually warm though. I spotted sunny yellow crocuses popping up in our yard this morning, which just blows me away.  Our winter was so mild that I only had to shovel snow three times!

Around the house… the girls are playing happily upstairs.  Jay is home from work and tackling paperwork in his office.  My mother-in-law moved in with us this past weekend and she is settling into the just-finished guest room. Her cockatiel, Mikey, is singing in the living room.

In the kitchen… I am thinking of baking something today.  I haven’t decided if it will be muffins or maybe brownies, but it will be something to satisfy a craving for sweet.

I am looking forward to… a roller skating party this weekend!  What fun! I am also looking forward to a Compassion International sponsor dinner and advocate retreat at the end of this month. (If you’re in the NY/PA region and are interested in details, please contact me!)

I am hoping… to be able to schedule a Compassion Sunday at our church this spring. I always get a little nervous when I think about hosting the event and speaking in front of the church, but the Holy Spirit always guides my words and does the work for me if I am obedient.  Are you having a Compassion Sunday event?

I am thinking of…  little Fatao, the boy I posted about a few days ago.  I am hoping that many people hear his story and are able to give financially or in prayer.  If you haven’t heard of Fatao, please click here to read more. Let’s spread his story to our friends and family!

Lastly, a couple of pictures to share…


This is the beautiful area where we live. So blessed to be near these rolling hills and gorgeous lake!


My girls enjoy having some time to create art.  Here, they are making paintings for Grandma’s new room.
