Just spent a mini-weekend in our favourite Spanish coastal spot as an advanced pressie for my birthday 11/09 from DH!! Actually, it went together with a little bit of sad news (because I will miss him) which isn't really sad, it's fantastic in the long run.... we put our son Joël, 16 years, on a plane heading to the Netherlands last Sunday where he will be attending a Bible School together with 80 other students for a year! It was totally his own choice, having recently definately made his choice to serve the Kingdom of God and follow Jesus. He is the first one of our sons to take this step! It is an answered prayer for me!
This is Joël now, and when he was three years old - such a great guy to have around! We are so thankful.
There will be alot of practical work to do too as I know that a trip to Romania to practically help people in building projects will be something he will be involved in.
I made a little book for him as a souvenir with photos of the family in it.
I have also been busy trying to think of something for the challenge at Hero Arts, which is to make a holiday card. I must admit that I am not super inspired at the moment so I hope to have another go later in the week.
Note to Michelle of Inspiration Blooms - I am finally using the Christmas paper you sent me.... thanks!
