Almost Wordless Wednesday, The Last 10 Days

 

So much more happened over the past 10 days, but this is all I have in pictures!

Costumed & ready to go to the kid’s concert series at Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

The orchestra members were wearing costumes, as were the people in the audience!

Simple decor

TEN kids & a newborn (not pictured) came with us to Trick-or-Treat in our neighborhood

 Our somewhat pathetic, yet lovable, Scarecrow

 Out where the candy is

 I love time spent in the boys classrooms

 

The boys & I were able to visit our friends and their new baby boy!

Wordless Wednesday, Rapture?

I snapped this picture on my cheapy phone in Siesta Key, Flordia, last week. It seemed like it would have been a perfect backdrop for Jesus to return for those who faithful serve Him… aka, “The Rapture!”  It was SO beautiful! My heart is ready!

In an unrelated thought… stay tuned… next week I’m giving away a GREAT BOOK that I’ve LOVED reading!

 

Drive in Detroit

I took my girls to our friend’s house in another part of Detroit for their weekly sewing lesson. (They’re really amazing, by the way!) On the way home I took some pictures out the window to send to my friend who lives on the east coast. I thought you might like to see the drive. I love posting pictures of beautiful places in our city… but I can’t let you forget that our city is in great need. The greatest of those needs isJESUS!

I can’t help but give you the opportunity every now & then to be involved in what Jesus is doing in this wonderful place. Click here to see what you can do and/or give to the ministries in which we are involved.

You can get a LOT of house for the price in Detroit….
Are you sure you’re not supposed to be here?

Have you asked God?

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY
WORDLESS WEDNESDAY of MOMS

 

Wordless Wednesday, He lives on

This is my Dad, Leonard Hoke, Sr. in the 1960’s.

It was 14 years ago today that my Dad went home

to be with JESUS, forever!  🙂

 

 

I miss him… but will see him someday

because my heart belongs to Jesus, too!

 

You can click here for another post with a little history about him.

And here, too!

Wordless Wednesday, Detroit Book Store

My daughter, Mariah, took this on Monday when all three of my daughters & I visited the giant John K King Used book store in Detroit.  It’s four HUGE floors of every thing imaginable!  We had a great time and each of us walked about with something AND a gift for a friend’s upcoming birthday.

Sorta Wordless Wednesday, Good-Bad-Good

Good =

Making homemade laundry soap that is strong, inexpensive,

smells nice & is quite hard working.

Bad =

Pouring the newly made soap into a 5 gallon bucket that had been washed out,

but the old dried paint wasn’t scraped out.

Hey, it’s dried up. Who cares!

(This results in tiny, wet squiggly bits of paint floating around in the soap.

NOT good. Bad)

Good = Using the strange soap to clean sinks and toilets.

The strange painty bits just wash down the drain.

(Just be sure to rinse well with water.)

More Good =

I’ve found a similar recipe that doesn’t require a 5 gallon bucket,

just 5 milk jugs. I’m tryin’ that next!

(And be assured that I’ll be giving those milk jugs a hearty cleaning first!)
