love week and instaweekend....

"love week 2012"

"it's about compassion, unity, selfllessnes, and service.  together we will serve with more than 50 organizations like a Child's Place, Charlotte Rescue Mission, Urban Ministry Center and One 7. We believe in making the name of Jesus famous through our service.

During Love Week 2012, we are uniting a body of believers to serve more than 50,000 volunteer hours in the Charlotte area."

 our family participated in a few service projects....
like this one...
organizing, writing love notes, and processing
over a few thousand pairs of shoes for the organization
"samaritan's feet"
and by the last day of Love Week 2012
which was yesterday...
i was thrilled to read this tweet.... 
that 50,000 hours of service was officially passed!
stories of people being on the receiving end of love week
has been quite moving.
lives touched, lives changed, seeds planted...
"to God be the Glory"

on another note,
that long run i did on friday?
well, it was a looooooooong one...
so i rewarded myself with some homemade....
 shrimp and mushroom fettuccini...
a bag of my favorite chocolate of which i shared with the kids...

and another fave...
key lime cupcake which i split in half with maddie!

happy monday friends!

I found you over at Carissa's. Wow! That's a lot of hours of service...such a neat idea! Oh, and I'm pretty sure I could run a marathon if that pasta was waiting for me at the finish line. Maybe we could work something out. :)
