10 Day Give – Day 10

Yesterday I started the day subbing.  I wasn’t scheduled but ended up subbing for my friend who was wishing she wasn’t scheduled to sub that morning and since I didn’t have anything going on, it did it. That afternoon I spent time catching up on and finishing my Bible Study.  I really enjoyed the quiet house…

It was way beyond the “NEED” stage and was at the “CATASTROPHIC” stage.  I scrubbed floors, vacuumed in corners, and dusted every single item on shelves.  I feel so much…

10 Day Give Day 4

Today after subbing and then not feeling well, I chose to give something to our kids that they have been asking for.  I made Orange Julius for them this afternoon.  They have asked several days and I either forgot or it just didn’t work for me to make it that day.  They were pretty excited…

It is 10-Day Give Time Again

This is my third year participating in the 10-Day Give.  I love how it challenges me to find a way to give to others every day.  Some days it might be my time, some days my words, and some days I may be giving money or things.  The 10-Day Give is a challenge to give something…
