This is my friend, Gary. He gave me roses that he walked to the store and bought. What a blessing to share lunch with he and his visiting family this past Sunday. He lets me come and clean his house/talk his ear off once a month, and it makes my day.
Silly kids, make my day. Thanks God, for LIFE!!
The sun rose like a flaming rainbow the day I got to breakfast with my home school co-op mamas!
Yes….reminding myself here…even laundry. Laundry is beautiful. Philippians 4:6-10
We Three Spies
Praising God from whom all blessings flow! Glad for the break, glad to be ‘back to school’! All things in their times and seasons….
Thinking of people hibernating could sound a bit odd…but really, it was 7 degrees here a few mornings ago. Nothing can function under that type of cold! Of course, it warmed up, the sun came out, as it usually does, and I functioned.
Just please know that it has set in. Fall is officially over, and if you don’t hear from me for a few months…just pray, and know I (most likely) have a hot drink in hand, cozy pajama pants on, and am hibernating. See you in the spring!
….Oh, yea, I have a husband, and children…well, at least from the hours of 9pm-6am…hibernating ;)
This stained glass panel was hand made by the missionary pastor of our church in the 1980’s, and it graced the front doors of R.M.B.C. from that time till the year 2015. Now we gift its beauty to all who pass by our home, or enter therein! I love everything about it, and everyone it reminds me of - and may the whole world know the everlasting love of JESUS!
We SO appreciate fun nights with our JESUS family!
We had a great cross-country trip to KS, KY, and VA before school this year! It started off with a ‘Sour warhead eating contest’ in the car! Hahaha!
Colossians 1:9-11 "We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of His will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way; bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience."
Micah 6:8 "He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what the LORD requires of you, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God."
Catching Grass Hoppers!
Isaac got to be an honorary Sheriff's Deputy, Thanks Mr. Daric!
We love you little man! You bring music and laughter with you everywhere you go. God made you just right!
What an amazing day. So blessed to share time and adventure with our family! Including second cousins and a half-brother! I'm so thankful.
It's fairly often that I hear those words. They sometimes come when we've just come from a hiking adventure, or when we jump in the hot car after leaving half-eaten food in the cup holders. Sometimes I hear them when I'm cooking....depending on the tone of voice they are uttered in, and how the nose is crinkled, determines if I'm happy about hearing them or not!!
The other day I uttered them myself after entering our shed....and after having Marand's super nose verify, Yep, something died in there. This is where having kids gets really fun. Hahaha!
