Silas had a wonderful time being celebrated at his party on Sunday. He said YAY every time he opened a gift...even before he saw what it was :) That is the kind of thankfulness I desire to have! This past week while we prayed as a family for Aunt Amy (who was in Guatemala helping build homes in an impoverished community) we were so aware of how very blessed we are! Not only are all our needs met , but we have more possessions the people there could ever imagine. So Silas' happy gratitude really made me smile
One of the shelters that the family in Guatemala was living in...
...and their new home (which the team built in one day!)
The builders! All members of our church family!
