In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

Last sunday we went to help my son put lights on his house the weather wasn't to cold so Eleanor came out to watch with her mommy It wasn't long before she grew to tired to watch her daddy on the roof
We went back inside and fell asleep in the bouncy

This Monday I will begin watching her 4 days a week while here mommy goes back to work.
She would love to stay home with her but like most young cou[ples who are trying to own a home in this economy she has to help out financially. She is hoping by the next child( if they are able to have another) she will be able to stay home with them.

He has the Christmas lights up already ?!? Good for him. Jim is hoping to get our sons help him put them up while they are here for Thanksgiving.

How precious for you Alice, to have little Eleanor 4 days a week! Hunter and Eleanor will benefit from Grandma and Grandpa's attention in their early years.


If we dont get our lights up early in Minnesota. It then becomes a job instead of a fun experience. I waited until December the first year we were here. 20 below (not Fun)
