Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Alli and Daddy's Birthday

Today is the day!  It is Groundhog's day and Puxatauwny Phil saw his shadow, which means 6 more weeks of winter.   In our case, we havn't had winter YET.

Two very special people have birthdays today.  Mike and Alli. :) 
We now have 2 13 year olds in the house along with 2 twelve year olds.  Wow! :)

Sarah woke up early, because THIS YEAR, she was in charge of the morning fun.  She planned a Sherlock Holmes Birthday hunt. 
Alli got to be Sherlock and Daddy Watson.....:)
They had, and STILL have clues to go through... they even had to translate a note written in an ancient hieroglyph.... and when they couldn't they came to me, "Mrs. Blister" the librarian, who was able to give them a clue to find the code. LOL

more to come..... We are having a great day!

It is nice to see Alli and Erika in photos together. There is an uncanny resemblance...not in the details of their faces...but I have to look at photos twice sometimes to tell if it is a photo of Erika or Alli!
