You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.
You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6:5-9

We went to church. The whole team, and the boys. Two people fell asleep in church. One was under the age of four. And one was not. :-) And he was asleep, asleep, not just nodding off. As in, someone tried to wake him a few times, and he did not respond. A picture was taken of said adult, however, it has since been deleted, due to an extreme amount of "trash talking" by the photographer. The Pastor laughed because the flash went off when the photo was taken. Oh yeah, we were sitting in the front two rows. Any guesses as to the identity of the sleepy head and the photographer?

It was fun to watch the boys get ready for church. Or more accurately, watch the nannies get them ready. I saw some hair care that I think I can manage, so that's encouraging. It's kind of like the boys are rockstars at the O, when we are here. They get to go out sometimes, they get their own clothes and some snacks and stuff. All the other kids know what/where the boys are going and so on. It's cute.

We did some cleaning and painting at the O today, along with the construction project out back. That is coming together well. I still can't believe that grill got here, as checked luggage. When you see the photos, you will understand why. Evidence that God is still in the miracle business.

Tomorrow, more painting, finishing up the kitchen, unpacking and organizing supplies. Also helping with some school stuff. Busy day.

Thanks for checking in.

Keep your prayers coming.

They are working.

God is great.


  1. Glad to know that the Pastor has a good sense of humor!

    Sounds like the team has been very busy. I can't wait to see pictures! Still praying!


Thanks for interacting with me thru my blog. I love hearing from you.
