This is the day the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it! Today is the day Elisabeth Elliot, her husband, and their caregiver are coming to spend a couple days with us. The sheets are changed and the guest bed is ready below! They have come to see us before, but they have never stayed with us, so this is very exciting. ☺
Since her husband, Lars, loves soup, I made them chicken soup yesterday. It's so easy and good.
We are a little bit nervous because dear Elisabeth Elliot is now 86 years old! Sadly, she suffers from dementia. I know it will be very different from their last visit near a decade ago, but I am so happy for a chance to serve her because she served me by teaching me so much what it meant to be a Christian woman. I love her, as so many do!
I'll try to get some pictures for you. Please pray we will be a good host to all of them. I have their care giver's room all ready. (Blair, she is sleeping in your room, and it's clean as a pin!)
Tomorrow they are going with us to a children's violin concert that Mary is in after church. The picture below was taken yesterday at practice. You can see Mary on the far left in her sunglasses.☺
I just know that the music is going to be so soothing for everyone. ☺ My sons just got back yesterday from their first mission trip (Dominican Republic). They loved helping to build a church there and meeting so many little children who just wanted them to spin them and throw them in the air. They both say they want to go back. Thank you for praying for them!
Enjoy this few second clip from yesterday's practice—I just couldn't resist!
Walk by faith,
