Everyone seems to be in the mood of “getting projects done,” especially on weekends. There are things that we are finally finding time to get to, like putting up shelves in our master bedroom and making an “art corner” for me to use with the kids. It was so nice to get some organizing and housework done, while I let the kids use the new “art corner” to try some new art projects. It was a beautiful and productive spring Saturday.


Abba Father, I know we have so much to be thankful for.  But if it’s not too much to ask, I would love to see the kids (especially Toshi) be able to finish out their school year with their friends, even if it’s only for a couple of weeks. That’s my desire. Please continue to bring strength and comfort to those who are severely affected by the coronavirus. Amen.
