Saturday thoughts


Another weekend is here and I hardly know where the week has gone! It's been one of those weeks that is busy, but there aren't really big projects getting done.

Kaleb has entered a week-long animation contest and has been really busy creating his entry. It turned out really well.... I'll post a link after the judging is complete and it can be shared. 

Friend came for the afternoon one day this week. What fun to reconnect with people from nearby that have also lived in the Philippines. To share memories and know that some of our "norms" from life overseas are also their norms. Another friend called, and I agree with her comment that it was like a spoon of ice cream, leaving you wanting more. Years of history, yet much of that apart.

Kevin has been training really hard. He also had opportunity to learn a new skill loading turkeys this week. His arms looked like the turkeys figured out he was inexperienced... but next time he'll get the better of them! I sent out an e-mail this week regarding Kevin's graduation from high school... if you didn't see the fun photos, e-mail me and I'll send it to you!

We celebrated a niece's birthday. What fun to be together as a family and share her special day with her. What are the chances? In fact, this is her 20th birthday, and I believe it's the first one we've shared. Wow. 

Life. Opportunities to live faith, love, and hope. Chances to share and to listen. Lives to impact and lives to be impacted by.
