My brother emailed us this photo of our Little Hope walking to kindergarten on the first day of school. Thank you for letting me steal the photo L & M!
He said that it was a good first week and an emotional first week. I got emotional just looking at our youngest niece walking the path to her public school! Love the braids!!
Numbers 6:24-26 (ESV) and (The Message)
The Lord bless you and keep you;
25 the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
26 the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.
and from the Message Version…
God bless you and keep you,
25 God smile on you and gift you,
26 God look you full in the face
and make you prosper.
Beth, If you are reading this post check out the backpack that Hope is toting. Remembering our fun day in Poulsbo…
Has school started in your neck of the woods? I was telling Vee on one of her posts that I’m pretty traditional about school calendars and am always surprised to see school starting before Labor Day Weekend!
I’m happy to say I made it to my first International soccer game in a country other than my own! I’ll have lots to share about this day later with more photos.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone. I quite by mistake ordered this drink and when it came to the table in it’s green glory it reminded me what day it was. The Italians don’t give much thought to St. Patrick’s day.
Give me a few friends
who will love me for what I am,
and keep ever burning
before my vagrant steps
the kindly light of hope…
And though I come not within sight
of the castle of my dreams,
teach me to be thankful for life,
and for time’s olden memories
that are good and sweet.
And may the evening’s twilight
find me gentle still.
God bless you all my dear friends!
May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.
Hope you feel a little Irish this week and have blessings to share. My birthday weekend was filled with lots of wonderful things and I’ll be posting about it after I rest up a bit. Top of the mornin to ye. Remember to pray for Smiling Sally today as she is having another surgical procedure.
