Moving has started…

We were blessed to have the Bettendorf’s over last night and all day today.

They, along with some friends with teenage boys, helped us move the bunk beds which was a big undertaking.  We also purchased a 12 ft table and they put it together.  Thankfulness fills my heart because that made next Saturday, our official move date, much easier since most of the beds will be in place.  All we need to do is add the mattresses.

Now, I am pooped.

I should scrub my floor because 12 children ate chocolate cake not just one meal but two.  I think I am going to skip it and tell my small group to keep their shoes on tomorrow when they come over.  I hope they will understand because although the night is young, all I want to do is slither into bed.

Silas Quote

“Mom, I know how to spell peanut butter.”

“Oh, really?”

“J – I – F”

Tie breaker…

Since we are on a roll…

We are having another very active…

BOY!

Psalm 139

13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with you.

Mother load

I hit the jackpot in the clearance isle today in Walmart. Everything was $5 no matter what the original price. I could hardly contain myself because I am always on the look out for deals such as this because it is how I can bless local ministries such as Anna Marie’s (Battered Woman’s Shelter), stock up on my gift stash, and find great Christmas presents.
