Just popping in on a Saturday afternoon to share a few blessings from this week. Here goes:
1. The opportunity to have our missionary friends Bill and Karen visiting our church last Sunday to update us all on their ministry in Papua New Guinea. It was a wonderful day of fellowship.
2. The blessing to be able to volunteer this week at The Wilds of New England. It continues to amaze us that God is using us even in a tiny way in this wonderful ministry.
3. Everything going smoothly in all of our projects -- my hubby's painting, carpentry and floor installation projects and my own work in the kitchen which helped keep volunteers and staff well fed. It took a lot of detailed planning but I am praising the Lord that everything went so well. We prepared lunches and dinners in the Inn, below.
4. Lots of time with people! Getting to know our fellow volunteers and staff a little better as we worked together and also shared meals around a table. Two phone calls with my friend Jennifer this week; it was good to stay caught up with her even while out of town. Instagram messaging with my daughters and even a message from granddaughter Emily. Getting to attend a discipleship Bible study on Tuesday night. Having a wonderful, iron-sharpening-iron visit with my younger friend Cassie after supper last evening.
5. Being able to go out for brunch yesterday with our friends Terry, Bill and Karen. What a treat that was! It meant taking a few hours out of our time at TWNE, but was well worth it to be able to get our widowed friend Terry a little time with these dear ones she remembers from years gone by. It was a refreshing time for all of us.
6. Small amounts of free time so I was able to do a little bit of crochet and counted cross stitch, and even a little bit of blogging. I was also able to have a truly blessed quiet time each morning and do some studying ahead for Sunday Scripture posts.
What a busy week indeed! A very good one, though. It is always good to have time with dear friends.ReplyDelete
