Yesterday we went to the M's house, and I came back with two sweet little treasures.
One says "To: Meleny", with a big heart under the words. On the other side of the page are pictures of hearts, stars, and people, and in big, childish writing, the words, "Love ... I love you"... below a face "Maddy"... "Make u smile".... "From: Maddy". And it did make me smile!! Oh boy, didn't it! :-D
The second is a folded paper. On the front is a picture of a horse. On the inside it says "To: Amanda, Bethany, and Melany". There is a picture of three horses, "Moonbeam-- Lead Mare; Cloud Dancer-- a stallion; Strider-- a batchler"; it is entitled "A fight for a herd." This is from Olivia. On the back is a picture of flower.
Hannah E., whose family also came to the M's last night, said that her mom made a portfolio of all the cards and pictures her kids had given her when they were little. What a phenomenal idea! I have innumerable cards and pictures from little kiddos and they're all lying in desk drawers and tubs and random folders. So when I get back I am going to start my own portfolio so I can have them all in the same place. :-)
I love love love love love little kids!! As I enter my senior year, I am praying about what the Lord would have me do after I graduate, and I am really praying towards some kind of ministry with kids because I just love them to pieces, as Daniel Hadley would say. :-) Exactly how, where, when, and who is unknown to me though. Can you all please pray for me as I seek God's will for my life? Please pray that my heart would always be attuned to Him and that I would discern what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
When I get home, I might edit this post and put my favorite picture of me with the M. girls and Rebecca last year but alas I'm not on my own computer right now. :-)
