Currently in April

"Imperfect changes are slow steps of progress wrapped in grace." ~Unglued
 



Currently -

Reading- Unglued. So good, so convicting, so encouraging.

Listening- to hymns like crazy. I may or may not have sat on the front porch this morning belting out hymns for a hour before the kids woke up. So sorry to anyone in ear shot.

Eating - Salad like there is no tomorrow. Found some lettuce in Kigali, and trying to use it all up before it goes bad. Be. Still. My. Heart.

Drinking- Water. Who knew when I got headaches and thought it was a caffeine headache, it was more my body crying for water. Though I hoped cutting out caffeine to one coffee in the morning, meant my RLS would chill. Not so. I so have my mothers RLS. Booooo.

Needing- Sponsors for Flora and Alice for the second term of school. It is just $125 that covers their school fee's and transport. If you want to sponsor one of these lovelies, click the donate button for the girls needs to the right. Its over there somewhere. It is coming up soon too, next week. Eeeeeeeeek.

Confused- By Alice's biopsies that came back negative for TB and cancer. We need a diagnosis in order for a treatment for the mass. Diagnosis would be good. Working on some other options.

Praying- a whole lot these days. Feeling so close to my God lately. Esp in the early morning, as the birds call out, telling you the light of dawn is about the break through the darkness of night, with my one and only for the day cup of coffee and my bible on the front porch. Those early mornings with the Lord on the porch, is what sustains me through the day.

Planning- A trip to Kenya for a few days in May. The fact that they have frozen yogurt there, has nothing to do with the choice of places.

Excited- To eat frozen yogurt next month in Kenya for a few days. It’s the little things peeps.

Prepping- for the second term of school for everyone in the house but Mo man. Oh the flurry.

Loving- whatsapp. It has changed this girl’s life. Texting with friends in the states for free. It's pretty legit.

Sleeping- like a rock. Valor and Peace & Calming Essential oils in the diffuser, rain or ocean waves on the sound machine. And Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. . . . .

Learning- That I need to let the Lord take care of me, and sometimes that means taking care of myself. Like taking a morning each week to get away for a few hours. That's not always easy for this mama to do though.

Watching- Frozen. A million times. Yep, the craze is here too.

Thankful – For my little Mo man. Last night I was crying and he walked in. Silently he walked over to his mama, hugged me gently, and then wiped the tears like I do when he is crying. Even if he tried to use my hoodie, and got me with the zipper in the eye.
