My brother and sister-in-law have moved Out To The Farm, as the children say.  They're coming into town for errands today and then stopping by for a visit.  I've been happily straightening and polishing in anticipation of their visit.  I did the daily sweep this morning rather than this afternoon so I know baby Ellie won't be snacking on anything she shouldn't be.  ;-)

Getting all my work done this morning so I can sit and visit and not worry about not getting things done.

I know there will be much horseplay by the 5 cousins and I don't want to miss a moment of it.  I think we'll have tuna sandwiches for lunch.  With many pickles.  Tuna just isn't tuna for Ashley without copious quantities of pickles.  I agree with her.

I enjoy Melissa's company so much.  Ashley said it best a few minutes ago: we aren't friends because we're family.  We're friends because we can be.  Because the Lord has brought us together as sisters in Christ and I couldn't be more thankful.

I know Melissa and I will talk of God and of His unfathomable grace.  We'll marvel together about how God moves and leads.  How He reached down into the muck that we called lives and saved us from ourselves.  We'll energize each other, galvanize each other's resolve to point others to Christ with our lives.

Enough sitting at the computer.  I want to finish up a few napkins (will post about that later) before everyone gets here.  Have a fantastic day!
