We have so many role models in our Christian life. We have pastors, SS teachers, parents, professors… the list goes on. But every now and then we have a person who comes into our lives and truly shows us what it means to be a humble servant.
A person who offers to take food to people who don’t seem to appreciate it.
A person who works with kids who are not the easiest to work with for a living, then volunteers to work with even younger kids who are just as hard to work with when there is no one else to do it at church.
A person who continues to help the same people over and over and trusts that even though she is not going to see the fruits of her labor, that surely this is God’s leading and will continue to be faithful without knowing the end results to it all.
A person who for years and years continues to help the same group of people who have nothing to offer in return.
These people hunger to know more about God, they seek with everything they have to do the most they can for God, just because He loved us first.
These people when they are at the hardest part of their life, want only to know how you are doing and what is going on in your life.
Sue Riffle is this type of person. She is such a special person who will soon get the rewards she has never looked for, but so richly deserves!!

National Trail Day and just a great day!!

What a great day!!! Today was the American Hiking Society's National Trail Day. Last year I hosted an event. This year I settled for going to the Knox County Park District and the East Central Ohio Audubon Society's Early Riser Bird Walk. It was out at Honey Run Park where I helped make the trail. We saw 25 different birds, including the Indigo Bunting. I happened to be the one to spot it, about five times. It became the running joke that it was following me.

So after getting home from that, Amber went to scrapbooking and the girls and I went to the Farmer's Market and the Pink Cupcake. We bought a tomato and a head of lettuce, and a cupcake and some cookies. We enjoyed our treats at the PC. We came home and set up the tent and had a picnic out by the tent, picnic basket and all. We made turkey sandwiches and had our lettuce and tomato on it from the farmer's market. We then cleaned up quickly as the rain started to come. We relaxed for awhile inside until it was time to go the teen's bonfire at the Dubusky's.

The whole family went. We enjoyed hot dogs, chips, lemonade and of course smores. We played some capture the flag. (Anna cheated a little and actually held on to her team's flag the first game.) We came home very wet, sore and very tired. Overall it was a great 2nd day of June!!
