What a weekend. We hunkered down and enjoyed the snow-induced slow down. We tried to get creative with activities and broke out some new games. It can be tough to find something we can all play and that Garrett doesn’t get frustrated with, because he can’t compete. So, we created “Spongebob trivia”. I made a (really lame) S.B. trophy and asked the boys various questions that I made up, like “where is Sandy from” and “what is the name of Mr. Crabs’ daughter”? That is a game even Garrett can get in to!
The other winner was Uno. I can’t believe it, but I forgot how to play! Yikes. Thankfully there was a You Tube tutorial and it jogged my memory. We had a fun time playing…again and again. Lol. Gabe made a little card for the champ:
It was nice to get back to simpler things.
On the topic of branching out, I just wanted to share an e-mailed we received today during the morning show. Wow, what a blessing to be heard in Israel! Please keep Meghan in your prayers:
City: Jerusalem, Israel
I thought you would think it’s cool that I’m listening online from Jerusalem, Israel. I grew up in the Akron area and I’m here studying Israeli politics and Hebrew. I hope to be a living example of the peace of Christ here (not to evangelize – that’s not appreciated here), and to do academic research to advance the cause of peace. I’m just studying for an MA right now, but if the FISH wants to pray that I become an instrument of peace, that would be awesome…
It gets hard to be a religious minority here (I’m Catholic) – listening to the FISH really helps me feel supported.
So I wasn’t dealing with snow this weekend – when you guys were digging out I was playing soccer with some Arab kids from the neighborhood next door! Jerusalem gets a little bit of snow once a year or every other year. We had maybe a half hour of snow last week – but it didn’t stick. It’s nice to hear what’s going on at home…
I know this is long, thanks for reading.
You got it Meghan! Thank you for writing and God bless you on your journey.
