We pray your Christmas is meaningfully focused on the One who humbled Himself to save even me, even you. May your love for Him grow with each day He gives you to live. And may you bless others because He's blessed you. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

to Kampala, Uganda.
And now...after almost a year, they are moving north to Gulu. You may have heard of it. If not, please click the link...and learn. Learn well.
The Rackleys are our very good friends who...
have a heart for the unreached, the orphaned, the fearful, the ashamed, and the lonely.
They have a heart for God's Kingdom.
They also have six children living with them in Africa. And a requirement to pay six months of rent in advance for their new home in Gulu. And moving, in general, is expensive. And they need your help.
They need YOU to be used by God to help them get to Gulu.
Can you spare FIVE DOLLARS?
FIVE measly dollars??!?
Can you take two minutes of your time NOW to visit their blog, click the DONATE button, and give FIVE DOLLARS to this Suubi Family so they can go do God's work there?
Because time is of the essence, as they are having a Blog-a-Thon that will only last two more days.
So--before things get too busy for you...
and before you go spend too much money on more stuff...
click and donate. (It is tax-deductible.)
And I'd love for you to comment here to let me know you did. I mean, it's FIVE DOLLARS. No big deal. Right? Tell your friends. Share or like this post on Facebook, Tweet it, share it however you can and in as many ways. (All of the required buttons are lined up and conveniently waiting for you just at the end of this post.)
Thanks, friendly blog readers across the world! And Merry CHRISTmas!!

Two afternoon parties in as many days wore this little one slap out!
He was sound asleep before 7:00 tonight.
(Yes. Two. Saylor's was Saturday.)

(At least he's the quiet one. He just sat on the floor by my feet.) ;) Wish I had a picture of that!

Here's an idea of their style:
And here's why I love them:
Comment, email, Tweet, or message me on Facebook for complete details, directions to the church, to save you seats, etc. :) You have two hours to shower and grab a bite to eat. Hope to see you there!!

Yesterday we drove through New Mexico. Elevation of 700 feet. As opposed to the 9,000+ feet to which we had become "accustomed." Let's just say... my lungs are grateful.
Today it's Texas. Wide open spaces. Plenty of oxygen.
But I'll be honest, I'm gonna miss my lung-crushing mountains down here on lower ground.

It may seem as though I've been ignoring my blog. Well, I suppose you could say that. But I have good reasons.
1) We started school several weeks ago, and all that new curriculum had me eating, sleeping, and breathing school.
2) My husband is crazy spontaneous and his equally spontaneous boss gave him tickets and a hotel room for the Razorback game a couple of Saturdays ago (at the last minute), which we couldn't refuse! But coordinating that last minute trip with child care and all that goes along with it was a bit of a doozy for me.
3) And last but certainly not least, we left for a very unorganized, no-idea-what-we-are-going-to-do-when-we-get-there trip to Durango, Colorado...on Friday the 9th. And that's where we are right. now.
I am blogging on my phone. (Thank you 3G network.) We have no Internet at the mountain cabin where we are staying. And as it's going to be several more days before we get back home, the silence is going to continue for a bit longer.
But just so you know, I'm okay with the silence...'cuz at this very moment I happen to be surrounded by snow-capped peaks, deepest valleys, river-cut canyons, dark green spruces, softly-passing deer, and ancient Aspen groves. And this environment? Well, it demands silence. And awe. And thankfulness to the One who created such magnificence as this.

So school is starting up all across the nation. But not for us. We never stopped. (Truly.) It's just easier that way. We take off so many days during the year, we more than make for it, don't worry. This year, though, we sort of do have an official start date, thanks to the new curriculum that just. came in! (I'm so excited!!!)
Now. The students...what my every day is all about.
