Palm Sunday kind of snuck up on me. With two botched attempts at getting Aaron and Henk out to the village (the ship didn't go again this weekend), other things have been crowding out this important celebration. I did like attending the 6:00 a.m. service this morning and watching the sun come up. And God gave us sweet rain after we got home and enjoyed Sarah's cinnamon rolls for brunch. A sweet Sunday morning, indeed.
Friday night, our kids gave a small recital featuring the musical pieces and some of the memorization they've been working on since our arrival in the Solomon Islands. Margreet took pictures, thankfully, since I turned on my camera to discover a dead battery. We were super grateful for the adopted aunts and uncles who willing to come sit and listen to our kids.
The lovely coconut soap here is now packaged differently than it was when we left last year. That is reason enough for a blog giveaway! And supposedly, the soap is anti-ageing. I think we should do an informal survey on that quality. Especially since Katherine was looking at me funny while we were playing games this afternoon. I asked her what she was thinking, and she said, "I don't want you to get old." Then I realized she had been looking at my gray hair. She likes to keep track of how many I have.
So, if you are interested in owning a few bars of Solomon Island coconut soap (which may or may not be anti-ageing), please leave a comment by Wednesday, March 23, midnight, CDST. We ship just about anywhere!
