Esther's new thing is taking her old purse full of uncracked hazelnuts and saying "These are my own weapons. Come on Anna, let's go face Goliath" - based off lines from her David and Goliath story book. So far she hasn't figured out what a sling is and I don't plan to show her anytime soon :)
I've been trying to do some reading - especially when I'm up in the middle of the night...I recently read a really interesting book on the "candy bomber" of the Berlin Air Lift, something I really didn't know much about, and "100 Christian Women who Changed the 20th Century" - It covered a very broad spectrum, so I wouldn't say all the ladies changed things for the better, nonetheless, there were a lot of great stories and was inspiring.
I've also been trying to use up our winter squash before it goes bad, so I tried out "stuffed acorn squash" - very good, "butternut squash soup" - not good at all, squash fries, and pumpkin chip drops, as well as a recipe for garlic spaghetti, Cajun cabbage, and shredded beef sandwiches.
At church we've had several special speakers this winter - an evangelist who did a "one-day revival", a couple who partners with a national-led ministry in India, and a speaker from Creation Ministries International who did a great job! We really enjoyed visiting with all of them.
I'm hardly ever in town on the first Saturday of the month, but I was yesterday and had fun going to Goodwill to do some summer clothes shopping. Aaron did a funeral for a man who was a WW2 veteran and who knew Sgt. York. We met a family here who used to go to the same church that Aaron was saved in. I came down with the flu one day this week - as I was in the line to check out my groceries...Anyway, Hope you all have a great week!
