Great weekend

This has been a wonderful weekend. The batteries were dead in my camera so I have no pictures to show for it..oh well. Yesterday I attended a board meeting for Christian Homes and Family Services and last night a reception for them as well. This is where I work. I love being a part of this Agency. Most of you probably already know that I work with Birth mothers who are making adoption plans for their infant children and I also do home studies for families that are desiring to adopt through Christian Homes and that live here in the DFW area. When I am not doing this, I take every opportunity to speak, inform, and educate about adoption, wherever I can find a listening ear. I love to share about the courage and sacrifice that I witness in the lives of the birth mothers. I also love counseling women and girls that are finding themselves in unplanned difficult circumstances and are needing help and hope in what are sometimes desperate moments. This job is incredibly rewarding and yesterday was a great day of meeting people here in this area that share the same heart for Christian Homes.
Today Randy and I woke up and had the joy of realizing we had no plans for the day!! We did some house cleaning and then took our whole family to Cabelas! This is something that we had talked about doing before and today was a great day to go, it was too cool to play outside...we ended up spending 3 hours there and we all were having a great time! We all enjoyed the Aquarium and viewing all of the other animals..and lunch was great too. We came home, we all took good naps, ate dinner and then went on a long walk through the neighborhood with our dog!
Lots of laughter and enjoying each other today....I think I have loved just about every minute. Thank you Lord!

Glad you guys had such a fun time at Cabelas.

I just wanted to say, Kelly, that I think your job suits you so well. I can tell that you are passionate about it, and I know that your compassion and sincerity must make you good at what you're doing. Those women are blessed to be in relationship with you!
