Katie walked out of school with a white envelope and a big, big smile yesterday!
She made it.
She is thrilled to perform her little piece for the Blessed Variety Show.
She wasn't able to try out for the children's theater in our town this year due to many scheduling conflicts so
this will be her chance to expand her very small acting chops :o)
I know Ree doesn't need to hear it...
But I am awed and feel like this can't go without saying.
Ree and Ladd will be donating nearly $10,000 to three charities in Haiti.
Ree ran a post on her blog (www.thepioneerwoman.com) saying she would donate a dime for every comment.
And then she tripled the donation.
(She also ran the same contest at her recipe sharing website www.tastykitchen.com)
Seriously. Who does that? Ree does, and her precious husband.
I am so thankful for you.
Matthew 25: 34-40
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
“The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’
Encourage one another,
