Things to think about

Hi Firends,
We hope that you each had a blessed Thanksgiving... We have. It has been such a blessing to spend time with friends and family. We have had so much fun. The girls were able to see family they haven't seen since Mother's Day. We really enjoyed our time with everyone.
Now on to other things..
It is now getting closer to Christmaas... Happy Birthday Jesus !!!!
Now I Know that there are many different religions out in the world today... We, our family, believe that we are able to celebrate Christmas because of Jesus! We believe that we are all sinners, saved by grace.. That Jesus is our Savior and He is the reason we celebrate this time. Thinging on this, we want to show others Jesus through us. In order to do this, the girls have come up with several ways they think we can do this in our daily lives.
I am excited to see what they have come up with, so we are doing somethig for someone daily from now to Christmas... One family a day, something unexpected..... things from a card in the mail, fresh baked cookies, and then things like raking the lawn, or taking out the trash, to walking pets... they have some great ideas. I think that even little things can help kids make a difference for Jesus... What do you think?
What are things you can do for someone to show them Jesus?
Well it is time to go, we are getting things ready for school tomorrow...
Hope that you all have a blessed week!
Thank you Mindy for the blue scarf, and the elephant and scarf for Hannah.. We love them!!! What a blessing... Hannah has a new best playmate... Elephant has been with Hannah all weekend. (O:
Much Love and Prayer's,
Lori and crew

Thank you for stopping by my blog, your girls are adorable and what a wonderful way to spread the love of Jesus and plant a seed. We have an elderly widow across the street who my friends call Ms. Marge, we take her dinner sometimes and visit with her on her porch swing. she has kids but she is alone a lot so I know when God speaks to me to have the kids take her some of our dinner. Love thy neighbor as you love your self.....my kids get a blessing from being able to share dinner with her. nice to meet you!

What a blessing! I was just talking to Mindy yesterday (she's my cousin and my Roxy is her Angus' mom...) and she was telling me how you guys select a secret person to pray for. I am so blessed that Hannah has chosen us! Thanks so much Hannah, I know that I can never have too much prayer! She was also telling me that Hannah has some health troubles and I will be praying for her to get better. Also, I am glad that you and your family also celebrate Jesus at Christmas and I love the ideas that you all have for showing Jesus to others. Thanks for being an inspiration!
