This summer event lasted for a week. We enjoyed skits, prayer walks, 
bible stories, songs and crafts! I was impressed by
the kids. They are talented and precious.
They also really enjoyed the interaction with 
grateful hearts! 

We lavished love on this friendly puppy for one day. And praised the Lord each day!
Have you ever heard about the Flipper Flapper? Well, this was my
first experience with learning and using it. I don't have it 
pictured here so no--you are not crazy or blind! :)

What a lively group and I'm so thankful for Patty B. and her help! All the 
helpers were so amazing! We needed each helper and
their special talents and smiles.

When it was all said and done...Jesus was there. He was there the whole time.
The Lord granted us great weather. In spite of the rain last week,
we didn't have the deluge during our events. Every time we 
had a need for a person, a craft item, water or batteries...
they were supplied. 

Also, physical healing and emotional encouragement took place.
All in His name... the name of Jesus!

Volunteering - What's So Good About It?

Volunteering ..could it be for you or me?

Do you have some extra time on your hands lately? Are you feeling lonely,
purposeless and adrift?

Let's think about volunteering for a moment.
 Their is a list of reasons scrolling across my mind that support finding that 'special 
something' you can do and that matches your very own interests. Considering the possibilities...
how would you feel about investing your time in the lives of children or elderly
in your community? How about historical places or the library? 

You have a special talent or interest that makes your heart sing. 
What would that be? Cooking, artwork or crafts?
How about writing, singing, music or maybe you have the gift of gab? Okay, that 
is enough already...you know what interest you have pursued during
your day to day... or maybe it has been hidden away dormant 
and it waits to be expressed and developed. 

Volunteering isn't just for the other guy...I believe you will find fulfillment and your
interests and the skills that you enjoy will be beautified and
most importantly...shared with grateful hearts.

I challenge you this day to find someplace new..
a place that will encourage your
heart to sing a new tune!

Volunteer and strengthen and connect with your community!
And I dare you to tell me about it!

Car Show in Manitowoc!

I just love a good car show! I was told that these cars started in
Manitowoc and drove to Two Rivers for this event. When you consider the
time and expertise that went into fixing these beauties... 

When I was in high school my father bought me  a Grand Sport Convertible for $300.00.
 That car was like a Sherman Tank and could drive anywhere. I never had trouble
cruising on Pennsylvania roads in the winter...potholes and all!
Until I got a regular car -- the newer and improved version-- I didn't understand why
people spun off the side of the road or couldn't climb an icy hill.
Or drive down one without sliding...

But, I'd not want to pay for the gas that car would eat up these days. What a shame when
it was rear-ended and the back was crushed. This happened when I was parked
in a parking lot and it was the first dusting of snow.
But that is another story!
I really love older cars. The style and class and workmanship
they put into these modes of transportation is amazing!

If I could have my pick of all of these, it would be this green car!
I'm sorry I don't know what it's called...I just like it!
My son-in-law and Aria like this one!

But I think Aria and I would settle for this one!
Enjoy your family, make some memories and laugh a lot!
