Hello Monday!

It is Monday, November 12th, and here in the US, yesterday was officially Veteran's Day, though we're "observing" it today. So, I'd like to start off with saying . . . 

Hello ... to all the brave men and women, past, present and future, who so selflessly put themselves in harm's way to defend our way of life. Your service to your country and your fellow countrymen is so greatly appreciated. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 

Hello . . . to another week of Bible study with my family! We are spread over two countries right now, and several states -- we meet each Monday on a conference call for prayer and study. Currently, we're studying "Lazarus Awakening" by Joanna Weaver. 

Hello . . . to Operation Christmas Child! Our boxes are packed, and good thing! It's National Collection Week! Haven't heard of Operation Christmas Child? Visit the link, and check out this fantastic program for yourself!! 

Hello . . . to the amazing {mo}tography course taught by Jessica Sprague and Heidi Swapp! I'm joining hundreds of other women in learning to make to most of "mobile photography" -- i.e., my camera phone! It's always handy, and with technology today, it's a no-brainer to carry your phone and use it for the everyday photos. Ones you wouldn't normally capture, because, really, does your DSLR fit in your purse? Not mine! LOL! Want to see what I'm learning?

Hello . . . to getting ready for Thanksgiving. What -- you haven't heard of it? It's that nearly forgotten holiday between Halloween and Christmas. The day we celebrate all in our life that we're grateful for. And I have so much. So many blessings to be thankful for. We'll be spending our day with family and friends.  

What are you saying hello to this week? I'd love to hear about it in the comments below! 

Hello Monday is a Lisa Leonard inspired practice.

 Until next time, 



  1. Wow, Kate! You sound busy!

    I was glad to read that you will be in Wyoming for Christmas. I really look forward to seeing you again.

    Have a great week!

    1. We'll actually be up for Thanksgiving, as well this year! I am excited to see you and Pastor Mike, as well. Hope you are doing good!

  2. My getting ready fot Thanksgiving is getting out of the hospital and everything being fine.

    1. Allen -- I had heard you were in the hospital! You've had a rough go, my friend. Glad you are home now and feeling better. I'm expecting one of your famous hugs when we see you next! :) Take care, ok?

  3. Hi Kate, I find that I don't have your home address so I am putting my thank-you online. I LOVE my orange paisley book and pen! How sweet of you! It was good to see you, even if it was just such a short time. Too bad you don't live here!
