This and That and Some Funnies

Oh my goodness! I was shocked to come home from work yesterday and find 11 new comments to moderate! I've never had that many comments at once or even in one day! I feel so humbled and blessed. Thank you so much!

It seems as if it has been raining here in eastern PA forever. I think even our dog has developed a case of SAD! My assistant said the other day that she passed a church sign that said, "Don't worry...Noah still has the blueprints!" I love it when churches get creative like that and can have a sense of humor!

Okay, here are a couple of preschool funnies. We've been helping our 3-year-olds make a Mothers' Day gift. Yesterday we had them color a card and asked them to try to write their name on it. About 5 out of the 18 kids could write their names (which is excellent!). The rest could maybe write the first letter of their name. We really just wanted to see what they could do and then would help them. One little girl wrote Asss! The other teacher and I were just cracking up because it was so innocent but funny! One day last week one of our little boys was in the bathroom singing at the top of his lungs. He was singing, "His name is Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, oh He is the King!" I'm sure the "King" got a chuckle out of that!

On Monday, as I was trying to pull down a box from the top of a cabinet in my classroom, my hand was pierced by a staple. Right smack dab in the middle of my hand. It is a little red and hurts a bit. Every time I look at it, I can't help but think of Jesus! It may sound strange, but it's a wonderful reminder to me of what Jesus did for me so that I may have eternal life.

A big thank you to those of you who added my prayer requests to your prayers this week! I completely forgot that yesterday was the National Day of Prayer until Cricket (another VA girl!) over at A Simple Girls Life mentioned it in a comment she left for me. I know it seems as if our prayer lists get longer every day, but it is so needed. We live in a fallen and turbulent world and need to do what we can to lift one another up to God. I love you all for being such vigilant prayer warriors!

Congratulations on your many comments and hopefully so new found friends have found your blog.

It's funny how that happens, people leap frog from other sites from the comments page or just from other followers, however God has blessed you, you deserve it.

I find it interesting how He finds people and leads them to us! Hope you have a wonderful Mother's day!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat
