This is Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child,
so our Upstate Team is really busy. What a blessing this ministry is to us – we are praying for 100,000 shoeboxes. Hope you are packing your OCC shoeboxes! What a wonderful way to impact a hurting child and an entire family!
I was thrilled to receive a children’s book award this month for my first book, The Legend of Painted Pony and the Western Wind. It is a gold Moonbeam Children’s Book Award – SO exciting!
On top of everything else, we are remodeling the ranch-style house that is here on the farm property. It was built in 1967. We’ve been without any kitchen since July – arghhhhh. TODAY, the 15th, we finally have a kitchen sink again!!!!!! Tomorrow the cooktop should be installed. One little step at a time.
Just so you know, Peanut has been doing well. All the horses got their teeth floated. Sure am glad I don’t have to get my teeth FILED DOWN! Tucker also had a “wolf tooth” pulled – no novacaine – just “elevated” out.
Well – I’m going to the Operation Christmas Child
processing center in Charlotte at the end of the month.
Hubby is going and also our oldest grandchild, who is now 13 and old enough to go. We’re all looking forward to a fun, blessed, and exciting couple of days – oh, yes, exhausting too!
Be strong, work hard, live in joy …..
