Amazed, Awed and Breathless

First of all thank you will never be enough!  We cannot thank Puffy Muffin, our volunteers or  our contributors enough!  God blew our socks off Sunday at the Puffy Muffin and we just do not have the words to describe it!

There were moments our breath was literally taken away!  The tables were full and at times there was a line out the door!  I kept thinking God loves our kids this much!!  Then God reminded me "No, they are my kids just like you are and I love each of you this much!"  This took my breath away.  I know God loves me, we all know He love us - right?  No, every now and then we need to be reminded (shown) of not just the depth of His love but the breadth.

Please enjoy these pictures of what our family deems as one of the best days of our lives! Be sure to scroll all the way down, there is a very nice surprise there too!!  Then check out the photo section of our blog where all the photos from the day will be posted very soon!

Whitney our young cook with Mr. Burns

Our average volunteer age was 16, yes 16!  Our teens worked from 9am until 4pm without skipping a beat, taking a break or even hinting they wanted to quit!!  We could not have pulled this off without ALL our volunteers!! 

Enjoy the pictures and be sure to scroll to the end...
