Yesterday I put down my iPhone, shut down the computer and held my family close. It happened to be our final day of visiting friends and family in Colorado, so we spent time taking in the
cold beautiful scenery, sharing a delicious gluten-free meal, and ooh-ing and aah-ing over Christmas lights.
We were also blessed to spend a little more time with Jeff’s grandparents. Nannie, who reminds me that there is always beauty in this world if I would only take the time to look for it. And Papa who shows me what it truly means to walk humbly and serve others.
We will continue to lift up the Newtown families in prayer as we return home and throw ourselves back into fundraising efforts for Advent Conspiracy. As our hearts break for the precious lives lost, we have an even greater sense of urgency to save these children in Malawi who are desperate for food and clean water.
Joe and Leila will be setting up another coffee and hot cocoa stand this week. Please stop by if you are in the Gilbert area! They are also accepting donations via PayPal if you would like to buy a “virtual cup of coffee”. Leave a comment if you would like more information.
