The children and I have been having fun making Christmas crafts with the craft supplies that Nana brought last month--colored paper, glitter glue, googley eyes and puffies are used sparingly as to make them last as long as possible.
It is such a joy celebrating the season with a housefull of happy children--never mind the fact that it is 80 degree and the sun shines brightly. If you were in our house you would hear Happy Birthday being sung to Jesus and talk of what flavor of Birthday cake He prefers! And by the excitement that sprang forth from the 6 Christmas balls and 1 star I bought for $2, you would have thought I had bought the store out! I love, love the simplicity of my children.
My heart is so full of ponderings and meditations, thus the lack of blog posts. Preparing to move our sweet little family to a once war-torn, remote, poverty stricken, satanically bound part of Uganda has taken a lot out of me, not in a bad way, just in a way that causes my heart to be far from blogging.
