Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

When Mom's Away The Girlies Will Play

with the camera. :)

I left on a week ago last Thursday to go to Colorado for special training which I will blog about later. The girlies stayed home with daddy, and had a great time. Anna was especially sad that I was leaving, because when I came back, I only had 1 day before leaving again for camp with Erika. She just didn't think she could be without me that long. I knew she could do it. :) We all talked on the phone each day and discussed what our days events were and that made the time go by faster.

When I got to Colorado, there was a sweet little note that had been secretly slipped into my luggage. It was from my Anna.

"Dear Mom,
I love you SO MUCH! I am going to miss you, but I will be ok. Don't forget to call me before I go to bed"
your friend,

I was really touched by her saying, "I'm going to be ok". She wrote that to reassure me so I could relax while I was gone. Isn't that the sweetest?

Soooo, here are the pictures they took while I was retreating in Colorado. :)

How could you relax when they were so depressed looking??? ;-)
Glad you had a get-away! Welcome back!

LOL! I cracked up at Anna's "your friend" salutation.
She has been learning letter writing. :)

I think they did just great and Mike said they really had a good time.

I did too. :)
