What's Been Making Me Smile...

  • God's miraculous provision for our family, over and over again
  • Pumpkin pie, good food, and Mom
  • Kenny saying "Coooooool"
  • Cream of carrot soup, with a pinch of rosemary and a handful of homemade croĆ»tons
  • Sharing an overwhelmed pregnant friend's burdens
  • Finding out that my friend, Mandkhai is coming for a visit in February! (she is Mongolian, married to an American ex Peace Corps guy, Jay. They have 2 beautiful kids whom I've seen only in photo. They live in Texas)
  • The smell of gingerbread cookies, baking away
  • The "Lord of the Beans"' Sporks
  • Hearing Abi say, "You're extracting me" when she really means, "You're distracting me"
  • Lighting the first candle of the Advent season

How about you? What's been making you smile?

First candle of Advent already? I thought the first Sunday of Advent is December 2nd this year.

Daja, We're doing Advent a week early to teach our new leaders how to celebrate it in their cell groups.

MM, Thank you for your kind comment! Please do keep in touch!
