Words to Live By

All a person's ways seem pure to them
but motives are weighed by the Lord.
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, 
And He will establish your plans.
~ Proverbs 16:2-3

Around the House

I spent about two hours today sorting toys and reorganizing things in the playroom. I put like toys into separate boxes and moved most of those boxes out of the playroom. I will rotate these boxes in and out of the playroom depending on which kids are here that day and what works best for that set of kids. 

Outdoor Fun

We went for a walk before lunch and had so much fun. 

The very best part was finding these buds on a tree down by the creek. I'm beginning to believe Spring really will come again.

Out and About

We had church this evening as usual. So blessed to have an evening of teaching and prayer, so many kids, good food, choir practice, good conversation with good friends.

Today's Quote

A morning-glory at my window satisfies me more than the mataphysics of books. ~ Walt Whitman

  1. Oh, spring will come again. Seem like it may be like last real winter?

    The pictures of the walk by the creek are great.
