You know those days, the kind of days that you want to say something, but you don't know what. Or you have something to say and you just don't know how to say it? Yup. This is my day. 

My week has been slightly overwhelming. I had been praying for God to give me opportunities to minister to people in my church, and others just around me. May it be babysitting, cleaning their house, it didn't matter to me. I started praying with expectancy of a speedy answer. That's something I've been trying to do, don't pray and think of a second resort for your answer and just hope God will bless it. Expect Him to answer and provide.

 So why has my week been overwhelming? Because God is wonderful. Thursday night I went with my older sister and a friend to babysit three *adorable* children, ages 7,3, and 1. It was such fun! How can you go wrong with cute kids, fun games, and Barbie Princess and Pauper????

Friday, I woke up very early, got some things done, accomplished much that day with school, and left around 5:00pm to go babysit for a church with my two sisters and a friend. 

14 children under the age of 8..... One word. Entertaining

We babysat from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. 

Today We babysit again from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. Then from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. 

I am one happy camper.

Happily. Ever. After. 



The End. 

So. Most of you probably haven't heard of my love for the sound of the cello. Yo yo ma is sublime.

BUT. I have got to tell you about this new guy. Steven Sharp Nelson, is the guy I'm talking about. Oh yes. He's incredible. The pianist who accompanies him in some of his music is Jon Schmidt. He too is the bomb.

Here is Steven's  'The cello song' Prepare yourself. It's going to knock your socks off.

Here's another one of my favorites from Les Miserables. (Which is the most incredible story but and even better musical!)
This is, Bring him home.

But they have dozens of others that are SO amazing.

And they definitely make Algebra go a lot faster.
