Opening T-ball day at Dennis

Carson had his first game of the season.  He did a great job!  He paid attention 3/4 of the game as the rest of the time he was playing in the dirt. Hey, that's t-ball.  Anyway, Best, Joanne, Matt and Poppop  came to watch the game.  As Jonathan is in Florida for the weekend, Shauna had to study and Mommom watched Cinderella at home.

Take time to

listen to others when they speak
offer a word of encouragement
write a letter or send a positive email to someone you really care about
make a phone call and just say " I am thinking of you"
enjoy the simple things in life...
say sorry when need be
think before you speak
think how you would feel if someone talked to me that way
do something special for others without wanting something in return
reconnect with an old friend
hug your children
put your child to bed without rushing them
drive down the road without getting mad at the driver in front of you
help someone put their groceries in their car
take time to give thanks even when there are dark days
praise God throughout the day for the small things
listen to the birds as they are always singing a beautiful song

C: Mommy why would people kill God's animals?
M: So we can eat
C: but God will be mad at you for killing his animals just plant vegetable seeds

Carson's prayer Tuesday night
Lord, Oh Lord pleaaasssse give my mommy a new brain so she will give me ice cream every night.

C: Mommy can you buy me blue finger nail polish?
M: No Carson finger nail polish is for girls

what love is...

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. - 1 John 3:16

He died for you and he knows you...

Verse 1
He counts the stars one and all
He knows how much sand is on the shores
He sees every sparrow that falls
He made the mountains and the seas
He's in control of everything Of all creatures great and small
And He knows my name
Every step that I take Every move that I make
Every tear that I cry
He knows my name When I'm overwhelmed by the pain And can't see the light of day I know I'll be just fine 'Cause He knows my name
Verse 2
I don't know what tomorrow will bring
I can't tell you what's in store
I don't know a lot of things
I don't have all the answers To the questions of life But I know in whom I have believed Chorus He knew who I was when He carried the cross
He knew that I would fail Him but
He took the loss
Every step that I take
Every move that I make
Every tear that I cry
He knows my name When I'm overwhelmed by the pain And can't see the light of day
I know I'll be just fine 'Cause He knows my name
