Troubles...what troubles?

"Contentment is natural wealth, luxury is artificial poverty." -- Socrates

"Better a dry crust with peace and quiet than a house full of feasting, with strife." -- Proverbs 17:1

"But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that." -- I Titus 6:6-8

A Birthday Ritual

No, not the pick-your-menu thing! Although we still certainly do that. We like to spend some time sharing with the birthday person (or persons, in this case) what we enjoy about them...what we're thankful for in regards to them. Thought I would share some of the comments:

About Jesse:
"I love being his twin"
"He's nice"
"He puts others before himself"
"He taught me a lesson...I was being mean to him and he was nice right back at me"
"He's very brave"

About Sara:
"I'm glad she was there with me when I was born"
"She's my best sister and I love her"
"She gets us going in the morning and has a lot of 'pow!' energy"
"She's a very hard worker in her school work and house work"
"She's loving and really cares about other people"
"I love to play with her"

Happy 7th Birthday twins!!
