God's Plan For Us

This is our journey - God's incredible plan for our lives. When we followed the moving of the Holy Spirit, He opened the windows of Heaven and poured out upon us blessings we never dreamed of! Indescribable joy!

" For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Mother's Day

To all you mothers just waking up -Happy Mother's Day!!!!!!!!!!!! Mine has been wonderful except for the fact that I couldn't talk to the boys. I had a sweet note and a mother necklace from Virgil and Em had a card from her and Elli that made me really cry. She had saved the first picture Elli had colored on Gotcha Day and included it in the card.
No breakfast in bed but a buffet fit for a king. I even tried the pizza they had (tasted pretty good). They serve so many things we don't consider breakfast. Today, the Princess had noodles, a banana, apple, slice of banana bread, 2 yogurts, half a muffin, Emily's scrambled eggs, and a bite of a brownie. I'm probably leaving something out but you get the gist of what we are up against. We'll be taking weekly donations of groceries from all who can give :). Two teenage boys had nothing on this bottomless pit.
We went on a tour of a folk art museum. I'm pretty sure Virgil didn't see much of anything. Elli kept him running the entire time. Not sure where he is getting all this energy, but I'm so glad he has it! Afterward, we went to the grocery and picked up the basics - water, soda, ramen noodles, Barbie for Elli, peanut butter and jelly for Em and me, and diaper wipes for our hands.
We had paperwork to do this afternoon, so Em took Elli into the playroom they have here at the hotel. We went out afterward to look at the shops and Em found a great deal on a dress, which made her day. We also got Elli's dress for picture day. It started raining while we were out and we were soaked by the time we got back to the room. Elli thought the rain was fun, but look out when it comes to bath time. We persevered and she is looking and smelling sweet in her PJ's.
Tomorrow morning another tour and then back to the medical clinic for the TB check. Her arm looks fine to us so we're praying all will be fine. We should be going there about 1-2 tomorrow afternoon.
