Grace in Small Things

My friend, Joanna, started doing blogs based around Grace in Small Things ... which in turn came from another friend and now she has passed it on to several other friends and I thought it's my turn.  Grace in Small Things "exists because we are choosing not to allow the noisiness of life to rob us of the time and energy to be mindful of ourselves and those we love and to recognize the grace that exists in small is a challenge for every day, because there's no time like the present, tomorrow, never comes, and some other cliche about seizing the day.  Oh right: carpe diem" (  The idea is to find five things everyday where we can see God's grace and be thankful for those 5 things.  I've been trying to do purposely do this everyday - unfortunately, this week a few days were forgotten due to various circumstances...but I wanted to share what my 5 things were today:
1. Sun shining on me while I was at work!  
2. Durin…


This sign was posted across my street.  It says: Where is our crow, Mecky.  Bring it back - this is her home!!  Now I've seen Mecky and Mecky is not a pretty sight to be seen -   it has several feathers missing and is dubbed in my book as Shady Shaderson.  That pretty much sums it up! :)

Kids say the funniest things

I tutor a first grader on Mondays and Wednesdays. We've only started this since last week and so far so good. Although, today for the first time she was kinda c0mplainy about tutoring and reading and working her brain! OH well. Every day I see her, she keeps tabs of when tutoring is and is like, I'll see you today or tomorrow or on Wednesday....soo funny. The other day, I asked her where she is from and she says "Topia" ... aka ... Ethiopia! Soo cute! :)

I picked up the Primary kids and one of the ones that doesn't come with me, came up to me and said, "Eli isn't here, she spilled out after lunch!" :) Poor Eli!!

Then today, I asked my kiddos to write their teacher a get well card. I love reading cards from kids, so I'm going to share some of my favorite things they wrote:

- Plese come back. Our new teacher is bored.
- He is nice, but I can not understand his words.
- I can not read him.

Gotta love it!!

Quote of the Day

Today during tutoring, David and I were reading about plants and we looked at pictures of the seed growing and how it changes over the weeks.  He was oohing and ahhing about the pics and then says, "God is so amazing!"  It was so sweet to hear a 7 year old boy tell me that and remind me how amazing the God we serve is!!
