Treasures :-)

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. :-)

That is really cute! I have the same problem of stashing all those sweet lil pictures and grubby papers from younger bro. and sis. and other lil kiddos in odd places cause I'm not sure what to do w/ 'em. A portfolio is a great idea!!
