How are you??! I have missed you! Our family was hit hard with the flu this month. Last week I spent 4 days completely in bed. Ugh!
(Although waking up to notes from my family (like the one shown above) sure made being sick a little easier.)
We've also had the joy of 5 of our 6 family members being infected with lice. What a nightmare!
But, the good news...the lice is finally, completely gone!! Yippee!! My family is healthy. I am healthy. Woo Hoo!! I feel like the Lord has restored me ~ physically, emotionally, and spiritually!! My *joy* is back!! THANK YOU, my friends, for praying me through! :)
Here's a super quick update of what we've been up to....
***We had a super fun St. Patrick's Day Celebration on Thursday. Here's a self-portrait to capture my Irish roots :)
And a super fun picture of my husband John. He went to the store real quick, and this is what he came home wearing. I think my celebrating is rubbing off on him. What do you think??
Last night we had a great time at Bible Study. I am so blessed to journey with the most amazing, beautiful, authentic women on Monday nights! :)
My teaching was based on Rev 3:18 ~ Gold Refined in the Fire. I encouraged the women to all wear their best GOLDen outfits. Here are Kristy & Erica ~ two dearly loved gals in their GOLD . What fun! :)
I loved, loved, loved teaching on the *riches* that are ours in Christ! How I long to see us all tap into the spiritual resources that are available as dearly loved daughters of the Lord Most High! :) No more cold oatmeal for us, right Monday night friends?! :)
Next week I'll be teaching on the robe of righteousness.....can't wait! :)
And lastly....during our Spring-like weather here in Michigan last week, my daughters and I made a super long hopscotch outside of our house. I tried to capture a picture of it for you....
Our hopscotch went all the way from 1 to 77! At the end, I wrote, "Woo Hoo! You made it! Please sign your name". Our hope was to share our spring-time joy, and have other neighbors join in on the fun! :)
Isn't that so fun?! I just love sharing my *joy* with others. It's Jesus, friends, it's Jesus! :)
