"Our homes, imperfect as they are, must be a haven from the chaos outside. They should be a reflection of our eternal home, where troubled souls find peace, weary hearts find rest, hungry bodies find refreshment, lonely pilgrims find communion, and wounded spirits find compassion.”

A Couple Of Busy Days

Our homeschool co-op meets today, and tomorrow we have a dress rehearsal and then our Thanksgiving concert in the evening.

This year I have asked someone else to organize the reception afterward. This will free me up to "hostess", as the leader of the co-op. I will help with set up and clean up, normally I am so busy refilling punch bowls etc, that I don't get to meet grandparents and talk with parents. I love doing the reception, and love serving the families, so I was really torn about doing this. However, I do feel like it is a good choice for this year at least.

I am mentioning all of this so that you will know why, if I am scarce around here for a few days. Also, I would love to ask you all to pray for me and for Becky. She is heading up the program, leading two choirs. Pray also that God will be glorified through this program. We have never done a Thanksgiving program before, usually just Christmas or Spring or a Fine Arts program, and we really want to bless all the families of our group and the many guests they bring. We usually have 300 + people come to our concerts!

I promise to take lots of photos...
