This Week's Scripture

"Nor shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be doomed to destruction like it." Deuteronomy 7:26

This Week's Prayer!

We invite Your Holy Spirit to dwell in these rooms, which belongs to Henry, Anthony, Zoë, Asa, Rose, Grace, and Elijah, and in Heidi, Angel, and Angela's room. You are Lord over heaven and earth, and we proclaim that You are Lord over their rooms as well. Flood it with Your light and life. We pray that You, Lord, will make their rooms a holy place, sanctified for Your glory. And may You also dwell in our room and in each one of our extended family and friend's rooms.

Happy "8th" Birthday, Zoë!!

Friday was Zoë's 8th birthday!! She wanted butterflies so I made her some from construction paper and hung them outside along the back patio and we had a sweet little party! I have to say that this was the first birthday that she loved loved!! She was happy the day before and woke up happy and smiled all day and came home happy and smiled and laughed and clapped for her little party!!!!! I told her we are going to have to celebrate her birthday every day!! HA!! After cake and ice cream the girls made a necklace and bracelet while the boys played in the backyard. Then Zoë opened her presents which she loved all of them!! She then took her balloon and let it go in the sky. This is something we do so that we do not have to take them inside because someone's always pops and then there is an argument and then one gets in the fan so to avoid the drama we make a big deal of letting the balloon go free!!
Happy Birthday, Zoë!! We love you sooooo much!!

Was so good to see Zoë so happy for her special day. And her excitement was catching. Love the burgers, hotdogs, and the cake and ice cream. Wow. Seeing the joy on all of their faces while making their necklaces, was great. And helping was even better. Felt really included. Don't want the year to pass too fast, but can't wait to see how she does next year. lol.
