Star Wars Day~

May the 4th.. be with you :o)

(May the force be with you ;o) Hee, Hee

When my friend Jennifer shared this joke this a.m. I hoped this would bring a smile to these precious faces (Jim's too).

I grew up with my brothers watching and playing Star Wars. We have a few fans around here too as evidenced that we actually own Star Wars Christmas ornaments.... which are on the cake (Yes, we are nerdy..).

I wanted to bless these guys "just because". I was so happy I could bring them a little happiness on a Monday when the baby is fussy, the toddler has a fever, and we are all missing someone we love.

God blesses us so often with blessings just because He can. He blesses us out of His abundant love. I pray that I will always stop and notice and appreciate His blessings, although I so often don't.

I also pray that if I can bless someone in word or deed that I will. I fail at this too often.

I hope your May the 4th is full of blessings.

My Star wars-obsessed son would love this! Rats! A whole year until the next May 4th =)

I am SO going to do this next year...or I could do it tomorrow and they wouldn't probably notice too much! May the 4th be with you...I know it already is!
