God’s Move

The city we live in

The city we live in

God is moving in this city! We have a team of medical people here from the States doing a clinic in our town and amazing things are happening!

People are praying and God is healing! People are walking into the clinic with sickness and pain and walking away with none! Oh what an exciting time.

This is when it gets a little difficult for me to remember my calling and to know what to do with it. I haven’t gotten to be there for any of it or witness any of the healings and I guess I get a little jealous. I feel a little left out sometimes because I’m at home with the kids even though I know this is my ministry.

I need to remember that the God who is over at the clinic healing people is the same God who is here with me and the kids! We are not going to be left behind this move—even if I have to strap one kid on my front, one on my back and one in each hand we are riding His wave! We welcome Your move Lord, right here in the Leake house and to the ends of the Earth!!! Amen!

Beautiful Eyes

So maybe I’m a little biased but I think all my girls have such beautiful eyes.

Lauryn’s blue eyes.

Molly and her big brown eyes.

I call Jenna’s eye color “Khaki” light brown with a little green—and lashes for days on this girl.

Too soon to tell the color of Gloria’s eyes…besides her sweet cheeks are a little distracting anyway.

Mangos, Cups and Micah

Okay so I guess I’m feeling like I need to post something so you know I’m still here. Here are a few random things…I don’t really know why. But that’s the thing with random things.
July 27 09 003--revised
After school some moms sell food….mostly candy and junk but also these delicious mangos, already peeled and on a stick. Then they sprinkle either chili or fruit flavored sugar on them—they are quite yummy. I guess I kind of miss our daily after-school treat now that we’re on summer break.

July 27 09 031--revised
These cups make me so mad. People come to our door selling things occasionally and I often buy from them if I find the items to be useful so I can help the women out who are trying to earn some money. Well I am DONE with a certain well known plastic brand!!! You would think that if you paid as much as I paid for these silly cups (I just can’t do it! I was going to tell you but I’m too embarrassed) that they WOULD NOT LEAK. They have lids!!! What’s the point of having lids if they don’t keep the liquid from coming out of the cup? I thought that was the whole point.
Anyway I ended up having to put them in plastic bags with twist ties so the girls to take them to school and not have them leak all over their backpacks. And I gave the other two to the neighbor kids :) Okay I’m done venting.
Now, on to happier things….

Chris’s youngest sister (of seven kids) is visiting us for the summer. She has been such a blessing to have and the girls are sure enjoying the extra attention!

Now, what category to put this post in….hmm.

Local Friends

I love this! This is Molly and some of her friends playing at school. This makes me so glad we decided to send them to school. It has been amazing for their Spanish, it has provided a way for me to get to know other moms and has helped us become more a part of the community we live in.

My Ring

DSC_0055--revised

Yes, this is a picture of my sweet baby but if you look close you can see my ring. This ring has a great story behind it.
My grandma gave it to me on my 16th birthday and my grandpa had given it to her on HER 16th birthday. AND, it is our birthstone since we were both born in December!
This ring has become more and more special to me over the years–plus I think it’s beautiful!

Tofu Recipe

old and new random may 09 018

I wasn’t trying to be artistic….it’s blurry because—well, I don’t know how to make it not.

Anyway, I was inspired by a recipe in a magazine recently.  They marinated slices of tofu in some mixture of soy sauce and then dipped them in seasoned bread crumbs and baked them.

This is my version….

Marinate slices in some soy sauce and sesame oil (and water to cover)

Make a mixture of corn meal, garlic salt, onion flakes and onion powder.

Dip the wet marinated pieces in the corn meal stuff to cover then fry in a little bit of coconut oil (or whatever oil you want)  I don’t mean deep fry—I just mean cook it in a little oil.  Maybe someday I’ll tell you why I only use coconut oil for such things.

YUMMY!

Gloria

may 3 09 004

Our precious fourth daughter is obviously a little young for me to do a lot of personality speculation.  She is very into making eye contact—not just regular eye contact however, she seems to be trying to make a soul connection.  I feel like we can communicate with each other through our eyes—she’s very sensitive.

Jennagirl

Oh my sweet Jenna.  This girl has so much personality…wow.  Bit of a (almost two) year old drama queen.  She can go from very upset and angry at me to sad and lovey and affectionate in a 2 second span of time—it’s quite entertaining.
