Anyway

"People are often unreasonable and self-centered. 

Forgive them anyway.


If you are kind people may accuse you of ulterior motives.

Be kind anyway.


If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.


If you find happiness, people may be jealous. 

Be happy anyway. 


The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.  

Do good anyway.


Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. 

Give your best anyway. 


For you see, in the end it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway."


Mother Teresa

Family Worship at Fox Valley

  When we started our journey over four years ago, one of our first extended  parking spots was the backyard of this special church family. We are so grateful for the hospitality of Pastor Phil and Tammy and time to worship together again this past weekend. 

Gifts

Over the past couple of months, we've had the joy of helping to wrap gifts (lots) for children whose parents are either deceased, imprisoned or otherwise not involved as well as teen moms. 

Hand delivering them at tonight's party has left a lasting impact in all our hearts. What an amazing, abundant and awesome God we trust in, who cares for every need and forgets no one! 

Roadschool Today: Time with Mayor Price

We sat at Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price's meeting room table this afternoon as she warmly answered questions from each of the kids.

Our main takeaways from our time with her after hearing her heart and stories...LOVE GOD AND PRAY FOR WISDOM,  BE PASSIONATE ABOUT LOVING PEOPLE, THINK BIG AND ACT ON IT!
(It was inspiring to meet a politician who exemplifies all this.)  
When we stepped off the elevator we were greeted by a precious woman, a total beacon of light in that place, whose name I believe was Katherine-(will try to find out). I wish we would have gotten a picture with her as well as she made us feel so welcome and spoke encouragement into each of the children individually regarding their future and interests. What a gift! 
We had a little time to hang out in  the downtown water gardens afterwards. 


Memories: Last Thanksgiving and Winter 2016

After spending the past few months thinking we had lost a year's worth of pictures (restored thankfully!) thought we should preserve a few favorites here. 

Last winter at Grandpa and Grandmas acreage before it was sold last spring...

Our Book Nook

One of the best moments of every day... Squishing in their bed above the cab and reading. 

Or sometimes we just find them reading together in the night...
