What my house looked like most of October.

Halloween costumes...

Up for me and my sewing machine,
final count:

Rapunzel- but all blue and sparkly.
High-Speed Shark.
Pink Bunny.
Bob the Builder.
Thomas the Tank Engine.
Orange Monster...

and last but not least,
a Giraffe-Princess-Spider-Monster.

(Yes. I am serious.)

Welcome to my life for several fun, glitter-and-fabric-glue-covered autumnal weeks...

(Gluing eyes onto the orange monster costume is how miss L got the idea to glue eyes onto several of her princess dresses.)

(It was so extremely fun to work on them as a team!!

The kids got to put everything exactly where they wanted... and they were very specific.)

Janae, age 5:
"I love all the beautiful jew-els, but my most favorite part is where I used the glue to make smiley faces and this big puddle!!"

It was so exciting!!!!!!!

Finished kids-in-costume pics tomorrow.........

(A little foreshadowing:
They are so, so, so cute)

Human Needs Global Resources Covenant, 2009

As fellow travelers on this journey, we commit to this covenant before God. Lord, in Your mercy, hear these our prayers:

When confronted with scarcity, need, and inadequacy, may we be nourished by the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Abundance overflows from Your table, sustaining all who come in faith. Father, help us.

When monotony blurs our vision and dulls our senses, may we encounter others as Christ did, through intentional presence in daily life, submitting as clay to be formed into vessels filled with the Spirit. Christ, guide us.

When wounded by the fractured condition of Your people, may we be united by Your Lordship in faith, hope, and love; seeing, as through the facets of a diamond, the beautiful spectrum of Your light reflected onto Your holy Church joined in praise. Spirit, empower us.

When all Creation groans, afflicted by injustice and driven to despair, may the promise of redemption root us in the hope of Your Kingdom: "Behold, I am making all things new!"

Holy Trinity, send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart.
