Root canal this morning -- I'm not in pain now, just really "achy"! Thought I'd share some miscellaneous things with you today.
Yesterday our friends, Jose and Martha, came over bearing gifts. We now have a beautiful potted plant sitting on our front porch -- it is called "Christ's Crown" and Martha started it from a small cutting about a year ago. Be careful, though, there are some wicked looking thorns hiding behind the leaves!
Martha also presented me with a couple of bracelets and earrings that she had made herself. She is such a sweet, giving person. She and Jose have both brought many blessings to our lives since we have met them. By the way, my sister Barbara met Martha when she was here visiting last month -- Barbara, Martha wants to know your favorite colors because she is going to make some for you too!
One more picture to share. We were so excited to find some beginning papayas on the tree that we planted. Sure hope that the birds don't get them before we do!
The bloom has fallen off the one on the right while the one on the left is still surrounded by the flower. There's also another one on the other side that you cannot see. We love papaya (especially with a little lime juice added) and it would be so thrilling to be able to pick one from our own tree!
I'd also like to share a link with you so that you can read about some of the boys who live at Hope House. They are giving a little biography of some of the boys who call Hope House their home. Click here.
