First, we stopped by the Ronald McDonald House in Kansas City on our way out of town. I had consulted their website in advance and had put together a bag of items from their wish list. Our visit was brief, but the staff was very welcoming, especially when we shared that we'd recently spent time in two RM Houses.
I spent some time yesterday reading my blog posts from early 2012, and it was quite emotional for me to think back to what was going on at this time last year. That will only increase as February approaches, I'm sure. I think it's so important to look back and be reminded of God's faithfulness!
"Here I raise my Ebenezer*
Hither by Thy help I'm come;
And I hope by Thy good pleasure
Safely to arrive at home."
"Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing" by Robert Robinson
*An Ebenezer is a sign of God's faithfulness, as taken from I Samuel 7:12
I am kicking off my 4th annual pantry challenge this month, and plan to post more on that soon. I also have a couple photo posts ahead with pictures from Christmas and a family wedding.
Reminder: you can enter the book giveaway through tomorrow!
