Been a Busy Month...

Well, just a quick update... Things have been quite busy. Since my last post, I have been working in my little craft shop and also getting the house cleaned and squared away for our friend to bring up a youth group to stay while on Spring Break.

The first week of April was especially busy... Our church had a Community Outreach on Palm Sunday. We called it 3G Sunday, for Gather, Go, Give. We had about 15 groups of (gosh, I don't know how many) people, who went to various projects such as Habitat For Humanity, Interfaith, Arnett House, Kimberly's Kottage, and other local Charities. Each group had a different project to do, whether it was painting, cleaning, mulching, mowing, handing out food. I chose to give out food... we packed up box lunches and handed them out to the poor. We had wonderful responses for all of our projects and a lot of fun. If you want to see photos you can go to my Pastor's blog ( ) and scroll down to April 6, click on photos to start the slideshow.

On Monday we drove down to Orlando and Downtown Disney to meet our daughter, Susie and her family. We had a great evening with them and time spent with them and our darling granddaughter is always special. We had dinner at the Rainforest Cafe, and Emily was not too sure about the thunder & lightning storms in the restaurant. LOL

Then we spent the next two days, finishing up around the house for the kids to arrive on Wednesday. They arrived in the late afternoon and were here until Saturday. We had 7 boys and 4 girls, as well as the youth pastor and our friend. If I can figure out how to share photos I will add them later.

So now its back to a regular schedule which involves my Ocala Christian Women's Club on Tuesdays, Church of Hope Women's Bible Study on Wednesday evenings and BSF on Thursday morning. So with that, I'm off to work on my Bible Studies.

More again soon, ( I hope!)
