Spring Has Sprung Here!
Thursday, April 29, 2010
Hello all! It is been almost a month since I was last on SP but I just had to take a break! I was spending way too much time online and I was neglecting my household duties and my outside duties as well!
DH and I finally got off our lazy butts and began volunteering at our local homeless shelter, St. Francis House here in St. Augustine. We go twice a week and help prepare meals for upcoming lunches and dinners. Afterwards we serve lunch to approximately 60 people. We have been blessed by serving these people as they are so humble and appreciative for everything they get. "There but by the Grace of God go I".
We have also been working outside planting new flowers and other shrubs in the backyard and we made a new flower bed all along the back of the house by our screened porch. We purchased a couple of rocking chairs for the screened porch and have been spending our evenings rocking and enjoying the nature of God. Life is so good!!
We have had a few friends going in and out of the hospital for various procedures so we have been busy visiting them and helping out where ever they have a need.
I haven't been sparking like I should but I haven't gained any weight either. DH and I are going to try and fit in some bike rides in between the other "stuff" we are involved in but we are surely enjoying the springtime here and I love that I can open all my doors and windows and let the fresh air filter in!
I pray that all my spark friends are enjoying life right now too!
