We first made a short stop (and this will surprise many of you, I'm sure) by to see the grandbabies since they live in the neighboring town.
Harper was at her MDO and we got to spend a little quality time with Miss Hollis, much to our delight!
We got to go with Kelly to pick up Harper and she was quite surprised to see us! It was so sweet because she took us by the hand to show her teachers that her Nonny and Papa were here!
When we got home, she went right to her "kitchen" and begin to play-like she was making us some
She put her "special ears" in for us and she wore them for the hour we were there! We were very pleased her time keeps increasing!
You can see her little "special ears". The two faint lines down her cheek are from her Nonny's lipstick!!
Kelly said she had been carrying around her little pink Bible (she has several different kinds) and "reading" it. She did this while we were there.......so sweet!
We had a short but sweet visit!!
Here's our group of girls having fun at "children-only" camp this week!
They had a Viking theme this year!
Mike Seabaugh has been the children's camp pastor for many years. He is absolutely the best!
Many children heard the good news of Jesus this week for the first time!
Love his preaching, his highly-choreographic Bible story skits and his "Bicycle" story!!
One of the highlights for me Thursday night was to get to see my friend, Julie Beavers!
She is beautiful young pastor's wife and bloggy and Twitter friend. We also both blog for the Arkansas
Pastor's Wives for our convention.
She and her children were there with their church! I know she is a busy young mother, plus multiple jobs as a pastor's wife! I didn't envy her when I thought of the mountains of laundry she was taking home from camp!! (Brings back many memories)
It was so good to see you Julie!!
When we got home Friday afternoon, we went to have prayer with a lady in our church who is leaving today to go to MD Anderson in Houston to see if they can help her.
Later in the evening we went to visit another lady in our church who just lost her husband on Thursday.
By the time I got home last night, my ankles were swollen and I was so tired that I remember why going to camp was much easier when I was a few years younger!!!
Reminds me of Psalm 73:26 : "My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the STRENGTH of my heart and my portion forever."
