Welcome...I'm delighted that you chose to visit! I started this blog in March 2010 and I am so happy that I did. It has made me more aware of the many ways that God is blessing my life. I have made some special friends who bless,teach,encourage,and entertain me! My desire is to be an encouragement to you. I hope you will tarry for a while and that you will come back to visit often.

sign me up!

So...happy Monday to you!!
Thank you for your kind comments about the 
"bag project"!
To answer a couple of questions that were asked...
the place where we were sewing is a very nice
pool house that belongs to a couple in our church.
It is a beautiful place with a full kitchen, a bedroom,
bath, fireplace, pool table and lots of square feet for "functions"! 
We have had several Sunday School Class parties there. 
They are always generous to share it.
Secondly, no I have not been on any of the Brazil trips.
In the 3 1/2 years we have been at the church, I have not
felt compelled to go...maybe one year.

But, one thing I have felt compelled to do is help out with another
 project that we have going on. Our church has a very good
 relationship with the elementary school for our area of the county which
is only a few blocks down the road.
This past Aug, we fed the teachers breakfast one day during their week
 of preparation prior to the first day of school.
 For several years, we have helped some of the families
 of students there at Christmas time. 
And this is our second year of Project Snack Sax.
There are children who eat breakfast and lunch at school every day
and then have little to eat the rest of the day. 
Weekends are particularly rough for these children.
So, we collect items like these...

And on Fridays, "sacks of snacks" are sent home with them.
When we first started this ministry, the school gave us the names
of ten children. Now, we have 22! 

Our family has always had plenty to eat, so it grieves me to 
think that there are children that go to bed hungry every night.
If I can help alleviate that, even in this small way ...
sign me up!! :-)


  1. that's a nice project to participate in...

  2. Proof that we don't have to leave the country in order to serve in His name. 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

  3. How very sweet of you, what a nice ministry.

  4. I love the Snack Sax idea! I also worry about local children being hungry at times they're not at school. That's such a great work you're doing!

  5. that is a great idea to send the week end snacks home... and a true blessing to those children...

  6. What a beautiful project and I know the children who receive them are very blessed to get them.

  7. What a wonderful thing you all are doing for the children, bless you all!! Hugs


Your comment is such a blessing and encouragement to me! Thank you for taking the time to leave one.
