Sweet Sabbath

"Thanksgiving is a spiritual exercise, necessary to the building of a healthy soul.  It takes us out of the stuffiness of ourselves into the fresh breeze and sunlight of the will of God." 
--Elizabeth Elliot

Flexing my muscles in thanksgiving for:


-for strong, happy, and healthy children who adore their daddy

-a splurge of peach cobbler and ice cream to send Aaron off to Bangkok

-finding somebody we know down at the wharf this morning to take a copy of the new Lavukaleve prayer back to Marulaon for corrections

-the coolest critter EVER, with a striped face, a turquoise body and orange intestines

-the perfect afternoon to have a farewell picnic at the airport while we waited for Aaron to board the plane

-a hilarious rendition of "mother-may-I" that had the whole family laughing out loud

-a game of hide and seek among siblings

-Naomi, who was strong enough to get out of bed for a little while and come to the airport with us

-kites flying in the wind

-a Skype message telling me Aaron arrived safely in Brisbane, the first leg of his journey

Praying for safety for Aaron and that you have a good week too. So glad that Naomi could get out of bed for a bit too. Do you know what that caterpillar will turn into?

I laughed at the "orange intestines." Homeschooling keeps our brains sharp to look for those opportunities, doesn't it? I love it!
