The Generosity of Children

My heart is full - so full it's about to burst. Our church, small in size - but HUGE in heart - invited a group of children from a Florida based christian school up her for a mission trip. They were to work on needs in the community. One need was a member of our church who is having a baby, and needed to redo a room to have space for the baby. Another member a single mother with three boys needed some repair work to her home done - her roof, insulation and siding. And my family - of which I didn't know this was going to happen - got a new deck and a new wheelchair ramp for me! I am thrilled beyond words. These children did almost all of the work - of course, at their age - teenagers - they are not permitted to use electric tools. But they ripped our old porch and stairs/ramp and helped nail down and measure the boards. They were friendly, open, very sweet and worked very hard. Our church also had them to services on Sunday and to a dinner after church. They say they want to come back as they we very welcomed here and enjoyed the friendship and fellowship. I hope they do and I would love to go to visit them as well in Florida. Our church has some pictures of the event at - enjoy! God's Blessings on those lovely children!

My crazy husband and sister-in-law!

Well you be the judge. I think they are crazy. My husband shaved his head a bit ago, and now likes the look. Actually, don't tell him, but so do I! And now with my sister-in-law going to have surgery on her arm and hand, she did it again (yes, she has done this in the past). This time at least it makes sense, since working with her hair with her arms after surgery is going to be a problem - but they are still crazy!

Here they both are:


And here is Kathy alone:


And here is Harry alone:


Like I said, you be the judge - crazy or not?
