Day #14~

Today, I am so very thankful for the talents that the Lord has placed in each and every one of us! May we know how to use them for His glory!

This evening, my mom, Andrew and I made the 60 mile journey to Bismarck to watch and listen to a group of talented actors and singers from Chicago who put on the play, "Fiddler on the Roof"! It was SOOOOOOOO good!!!!!!!!! I will remember it for ever, if my memory holds out that long. :)

There were so many "Favorite" songs to listen too:

"Sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset, swiftly flow the days,
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers,
Blossoming even as we gaze......."

"Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match!
Find me a find, catch me a catch.
Night after night in the dark I'm alone,
So find me a match of my own......."

"Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?
I don't remember growing older,
When did they???".......

The choreography was terrific and all the twirly, long skirts were so cute.... Tevye was an especially interesting character and the actor quickly endeared himself to the audience. It was a wonderful evening!

There was something that took place earlier in the day too though that I'm very grateful for---that being that my brother, Jacob passed his driving test and now sports a brand new drivers' license. :) "Congratulations, Jacob Austin!" Now, just watch out for those deer!

Let's just say it's been a great day!

Well that's wonderful Cora. :) It sounds like you all had a lovely day.
Pray you rested just as well.

Yours, Carra

Good Morning Miss Cora Beth!

Oh, how I love this musical as well! When Joshua and Daniel were in their early teens they participated in our local school version of "Fiddler". Joshua was a Jew (complete with full beard!) and Daniel was a Russian (he had to sing in Russian and leap off a table while doing that very difficult Russian dance!)! It was all so amazing...such an incredible musical score...we have very pleasant memories from that and other musicals that the boys sang in.

Praying that you and your family are well this morning. Please congratulate Jacob on his license! Samuel just got his last July...he is now working part-time in a local garage with a mechanic who is acting as a mentor to him (part of his homeschooling). He absolutely loves it!

Please give our love to your family...
Sweet blessings,
Mrs. Laura
