30 days of Summer Through My Eyes-Day 5-9

Last week was a very busy week and I got behind on my posting so I am posting all 5 of my days in this one post and will be better about keeping up through the rest of the days.

     Summer to me means bible school so I will be sharing some pictures from our recent bible school at church.  I worked in nursery with my DIL but we did not 'babysit".  These kids got a lesson, coloring time, singing, snack and activity each night.  They are never too young to start teaching them about Jesus.

     I hope you will enjoy summer and VBS through my eyes with a wonderful bunch of kiddos----

30 Days of Summer-through my eyes-Day 4

One of my favorite things in summer have been these little flowers.  They grow on the side of the road and in fields.  Sometimes they grow in rocky bad soil and places hard for flowers to grow but yet they do.  They don't let that stop them from spreading their beauty with others.        I have often wished that I could be more like them and let the beauty of Jesus show through my life no matter where I may be or find myself placed.  One way to do that is to follow the bible verse on the above picture. My son took this picture and added the verse as a reminder to me.        I hope if anyone is reading this they will enjoy the picture, thought and verse.

Summer Supper-Yummy!

I try to cook supper for my family every night and they  love pasta and it is so easy to make, this recipe might not be the healthiest but it sure was yummy.   I served this with some Green Giant Sugar Snap Peas that just had to be microwaved in the bag.  I had a couple people ask for the recipe so sharing it here.

Changes in my life and on the blog-excited about both!

My desktop computer had to be worked on and I couldn't figure out how to blog from my Ipod so my blog has been silent for a couple of months now.  Also during this time away my youngest graduated so though I will be working with one of my grands doing PreK this fall and all of them this summer, my homeschooling days are basically over. My Dr says I must make dietary and exercise changes and so everywhere I look my life is changing.  So I am making some changes here on my blog too and I hope that if anyone is out there reading they will like them too.

God bless, Pat
