There were many friends at the party, so it was a fun reunion. On the way to the party, we had to go over the Solomon's bridge. The water was so calm and serene I couldn't help snapping a picture.
I personally read the book of Esther twice. What did I glean from my readings? All week I have been meditating on Mordecai's challenge to Esther: that God is going to perform His perfect work. He can accomplish that through you...or someone else. The choice is up to you.
Mike and Allen read this bee book about the collapse of the honeybee and the ramifications of that. Both guys agree everyone should read this book. Lots of food for thought.
I have been reading mostly magazines lately, but I just picked this book up at the thrift shop yesterday, and it looks compelling. I'll let you know what I think when I'm finished. This is the summary on the back cover:
Maggie has been reading this book...and I've read it too. You won't eat another soy product after reading this book!
I kept thinking back to last year when Maggie would go to these appts. She would stare out the window all the way home. Then I would hold her all evening while she cried. Well, not anymore!! Yesterday, Maggie sang and talked. What an answer to prayer. We even stopped at a huge thrift shop across the street from Andrews Air Force base. Wow...the above picture shows one of a dozen or so aisles. It was so much fun!
Lizzie, Ruthie and I will be going to a baby shower tomorrow, so Ruthie and Lizzie are both sewing up a storm. Lizzie is making a quilt, Ruthie is sewing two receiving blankets. I will take pics when they are done. The shower was supposed to be a surprise...but Adina had the last laugh by having the baby on Wednesday. A darling girl! And she still wants to have the shower tomorrow. We can hardly wait!
Enjoy your weekend. Many blessings ~ Kathie
