Faith...feeling awful. But still smiling. Takes a lot for this girl to stop smiling.
Liberty...wishing I'd just let her sleep. She's also on her sick bed/recliner - backwards. Why do kids do that?
Trinity....also trying to sleep off her virus. She had it worse than anyone.
I took all these pictures at the same time. Three kids in different places, each with a trash can beside them.
Maybe it's safe to say all the sickness is past. If I'm just typing those words and not actually saying them out loud, do you think it will be okay? It (the dreaded 24+ hour stomach thing) ended up hitting everyone except my husband. I guess he was prayed up and we weren't?
About an hour into our language class on Tuesday, I began to decline rapidly. I tried to tell my husband I was feeling bad and that my head hurt, but my ever faithful to remind me language teacher told me that my head hurts every time we have class. Indicating that it's only the Portuguese language that I'm allergic to. After another hour, I left the table and curled up on the sofa, unable to hold my head up any longer. I think it was then that I finally got their attention and our class was canceled and I went straight to bed.
For the next 24 hours, my husband took care of everything. Cooking, cleaning, changing diapers, brushing teeth, putting to bed, dropping off at school, homework and all the other things that moms try to stay on top of. He's my Knight....in a dark gray sweater.
Last night we borrowed a projector from the little baptist mission in town and we had a movie night with the folks of the mission, their lost friends and family and a few of our neighbors. About 20 people came to watch Facing The Giants. It even had voices in Portuguese, which really impressed the folks. We pray their was a seed planted as they consider what they saw and how God worked in the lives of those in the movie. I wanted to take pictures but I was so busy popping popcorn and serving espresso, that I didn't have time to think about pictures. Everyone commented, even those that know nothing about a loving, saving Lord, on how good the movie was and several wanted to borrow it to show friends and family.
We really enjoyed my parents visit. This picture was taken 'Christmas' morning.
The kids at mid week prayer service. Feeling much better. Thanks for praying.
Brooklyn and Faith in the one and only classroom.
Trinity sporting her new hat.
Liberty took this picture. My camera was bigger than her head! She was so funny trying to hold it up straight!
Look at this crazy looking flower. My mom picked it out.
Enjoy your weekend!
