1. Oh! I forgot I took these pictures of our Saturday morning bible study . . . we all liked Gaby's ponche, but I think that maybe Josu liked it more than anyone; sheesh, that kid is cute!
2. My next door neighbor knocked on our door yesterday, and told me that the previous tenants in our place had moved out because of the guy that lived in the lot behind us - - every night he would scream and break glass. Ever since we moved in, she said, he stopped. She wondered what little stars and angels we had brought with us to make him stop?
I told her that I don't think that we brought any little stars or angels with us . . . but that I do know that God is with us all the time.
(I'm thankful for this poignant glimpse into the ways that God cares for us)
3. I'm feeling like I would like some candles this Christmas season. My floors are all tile, and my walls are all concrete blocks . . . if I'm going to bring fire into the house, it seems like this is the right year to do it, don't you think?
