We Received the Sweetest Condolence

card today from our sponsored child Flor de Maria who lives in El Salvador. Mail is a little slow between us, but she sent her sincere condolences to the entire family and loved ones of Clint's mother Midge Nichols. I imagine that is the only condolence card from out of the country and written in Spanish sent to anyone in the family.

She made a guess that we have lots of trees here. We'll take some pictures and send them to prove her correct.

We have accomplished a lot of school today. After lunch, we will head outside to work in the garden together.

Enjoy your children. They grow so very fast and the work you are doing in their hearts is so important. Teach them to be obedient and respectful. If you teach them properly, you will enjoy their company and they will be a delight to you. If you do not enjoy their company, it is a sign you have work to do in the area of discipline. If you leave them to themselves, they will bring you shame. (Proverbs 29:15)
