Sickness be Gone!

My dear bloggy friends, I have been so sick.

It’s been over two weeks & three trips to the doctor.

My instructions for now are to REST, stay indoors, eat and drink.

My precious husband has cooked, cleaned, ironed, taxied kids & shopped.  All the while, keeping up with his duties pastoring two churches, and evangelizing this needy city.  

I don’t have much to say other than to ask for your prayers….I’ll leave you with a few random shots taken over the last month……

We made a big tent in the living room where the kids ‘camped out’ one evening.

I don’t remember tents being so hard to make!!

Justice loved it!

Faith’s job was to hand out clothes pins….not without some silliness though.

Michael and I had the privilege of attending a banquet by the Gideons

These next few pictures are evidence my kids stole my camera…..

Hope you are all doing well…….

I’m praying for Springs soon arrival…..

    The kids look like they are having so much fun. You should let them “borrow” your camera more often. So cute.

    Hope you’re feeling better this week.

  • Dani Joy

    oh that tent looks like so much fun! They can be tricky. lol

    My parents are Gideons! I didn´t know there were Gideon groups out here. I mean I know there are Gideon Bibles here, but we have n´t been introduced to the Gideons themselves. That´s so awesome that you were invited to their banquet.

    You all are the coolest! 😉
