Rather not

Last night, Matt and I went with the Gideons to pass out New Testaments at a local factory. Each year, this company is nice enough to allow us to come and pass out Testaments to their workers in the parking lot. Matt has gone for several years. Actually, Matt is the one that arranges it each year. He needed a little extra help so this year I was invited to come along.

We stood out in the parking lot with boxes of Bibles to hand out. It was truly exciting to see how happy people were to receive this little gift. Some of the workers don't speak English so we had Testaments in their language for them. The men would stick them in their pockets, or some would even start opening them and looking inside.

Not everyone took one, which was fine. Some people were very nice and said they had many Bible at home and they wanted us to save ours to share with those that had none. Others, simply said no thank you and walked on.

But there was one young man last night that was leaving working, heading to his car, checking his cell phone--I asked would you like a Bible--never looking up at me he replied "I'd rather not". He continued to walk . What an interesting response. It has made me think. I wonder if he knew what this little book contained--does he know about the word of God, the plan of salvation, the fact the Jesus died for him?

So if you think about it today, pray for him. Also if you could say a prayer for those 291 people that received the little testaments yesterday, we would appreciate it.

I am truly blessed to have been able to do that last night. I am so thankful for knowing about God and his plan for my life. So thankful that Jesus died on the cross to save me from my sins. Now I pray that some of the people that I met last night will find what I and many of you have.

Have a very blessed day.

Take me out to the ball game

Happy Monday to you all!!! Hope you had a great weekend. We the Lehman's had a busy one. We had a great time. Now after reading that title I am guessing you already know what we did. Yes, we took in the Tincaps game on Saturday evening.

The company that Matt works for always has some sort of summer family party. Last year, we were unable to make it to the party, but this year I wanted to take the kids. Seriously, they feed us supper (a nice buffet meal at the park) and gave us these excellent seats on the third base line.

We are not real baseball fans so this was a real stretch for us. But never mind the fact we didn't know much about it, we still had a great time.

Ladan loved to match his ticket to his seat number--I don't how many times I had to dig the tickets out of my purse, so he could check he was in the right seat.

I am also not sure how many times I took this picture. (I never did get a good one!)

Even though we didn't know much about the game. We were very entertained by BirdZerk and all the fun things he did. They really do a lot of fun things on the field between innings!!
It was an excellent evening! We had a great time. Thanks to the people that sent us. We stayed to the end to see the fireworks!! The most AWESOME fireworks display I think I have ever seen.

So, if you ever have the chance to go to a Tincaps game. Go!! Lauren and Logan give it a two thumbs up. Have a great day!!!

Good News and Bad News

Yes, I have some good news and I have bad news. Let's start with the bad news.

Bad news!! It appears that I am just as bad at blogging with no one in the house as I am with six children. Sorry--I am trying. Let's hope I can get better at this!!!

Now for the good news. The time I have spent not blogging I have been sewing!!! Check out what I made to take to the Farmer's Market tomorrow!

A Felt Make-up Set

Even Lexi was thinking this would be fun to play with. I think it too cute and would make an excellent thing to add to the church bag for the little ones.

Sorry these pictures aren't the greatest, but I think you get the idea.

Just in case you were wondering--yep, I am still at the Farmer's Market almost every Saturday. I am having a great time meeting new people, staying in-touch with my vendor friends and selling a few things. Stop and and see me.

Home Alone

Yes, it has finally happened. This morning at 7:25 a.m. Ladan went off to school.

He was really excited about it.

Hopefully he is still excited when he gets to school.
He had quite the cheering section getting on the bus.

If you notice from the picture--someone is missing! Lauren! She had to be at school early today--so she missed the big event. (She will have to come home and look at the pictures.)

Ladan thought he needed to be the first one on. So when the bus pulled up --he walked right up to the door and stopped. Logan was right behind him picked him up by the arms and lifted him on.

I saw Ub walk to a seat and sit down. HE DID IT!!

It is now about 8:40 and I have had phone call (not from the school), did a load of laundry and answered a text message and not heard from the school. Things are going well.

Hope you are all having a great day. Hopefully, now that I am home alone that means more blog posts. (Only time will tell.) Have a good one.
