Yes, it's spring break. The week that every child and teen has looked forward to since Christmas break!! We're not doing anything exciting this year, just chilling at home. I'm working alot next week but it'll be OK. Last year, I was on a plane for Guatemala. It's funny how one year can change your life so much. I'm in such a different chapter in life than I was last year. And all that's taken place is 12 months.
Have a great weekend everyone!!!

And I also wanted to say thanks for all of the sweet comments that have been left on this blog. It's been so encouraging.
a light in the dark....
And a bright spot in the lives of those who are searching. Searching for love, hope, peace, and joy. The joy of Christ our Savior who died for me. He took every sin upon his shoulders, beared the pain and punishment we were to bear. He died for me, you, and anyone who will accept His free gift of eternal life. May He touch your heart this Easter, and show you His great love and grace.

This weekend was a pretty good one, I'd say. I think my highlight has been Sunday School this morning. I teach the "Mission Moment" to my sweet 4 and 5 year olds and each week we learn about a new missionary. This week, I taught them about my precious Guatemala. I introduced to them Larry and Claire Boggs (the owners) and our new classroom "buddy" Claudia. She doesn't know that she's our buddy but I decided that she is!! I showed them the picture slideshow/movie I put together and we prayed that Claudia would come home. Most of the kids knew what an orphan was but they didn't really emotionally understand the meaning of it. But one girl, Julia, truly understood and I think that God touched her little heart in those 10 minutes. She asked me several times, "Miss Molly (so cute!!), you took care of Claudia when you went right? Miss Molly, she has a family here that she'll come home to right? Miss Molly, she's gonna' be OK right?" Oh sweet Julia, God is working on you already!! Her sweet prayer for Claudia made my heart melt. I love that class. The cute girls with pig tails and the wiggle-worm boys!! It's a reminder of why I so long to be a mom and a teacher. My heart so desires to nurture little hearts. And my heart is full to the brim with love for children and God has given me this class to love, for such a time as this.
