Hard to believe it is the middle of the week!  Where does time go?  (I have searched high and low for it and cannot find it any where!)  Today was one of those get up late and then it seems like you spend forever trying to get through the day!  Yep, that was today!  After seeing our oldest son who lives at home off to work at 6:15, we crawled back to bed for "a few moments"!!  Right!!!!  We woke up at 8, and only because one of the twins came in to get us up!!!!  We had an appointment to have the van looked at this morning at 8:30!!!!  Dear hubby got ready really quick and made it to the body shop in time!

God is so good to us!  In the midst of our struggles in life, He still shows us He is God and always in control!  When we get the mail each day we look for "blessings" and "burdens".
( You know, "blessings" are anything other than bills and junk mail, and "burdens" are bills!)
Hubby checked the mail today and happily announced, "No burdens, no blessings!".  I guess I was suppose to be happy about that.  Me, being meek and quiet said, "Wow Lord, I was hoping for a blessing!".  Then I turned over a devotional that came in the mail, today, I might add, and on the cover I see these words:  "GOD'S PROMISE TO PROVIDE"!  OUCH!  I think the Lord whacked me a good one!  I had to ask for forgiveness and hear the snickers from the family members who witnessed it.  Yes, God is so good to us!  He is ever reminding me that He is in control and will take care of ALL our needs!  Tomorrow may hold blessings or burdens, and they may or may not be in the mail, but "I know who holds my hand".

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!



Life on the Homestead

Life is keeping us busy.  We have had grans over, a couple family dinners, running teens to friends homes or a church activity. We are helping out a family friend who fell and broke a wrist. Now summer is in full swing and warm and humid!  The air conditioner has been doing its best to keep the home comfortable.

Next week our school age kiddos will be leaving for church camp.   That leaves us with the three adult children who still live at home.  This will be a first for us!

This week we have welcomed two, new to us, vehicles and next week two new licensed drivers....

Well.....I have been trying to get some pictures to upload but am not succeeding! Eeerrrrrr!  I will try again later, when I am not so frustrated!  I will try to keep calm and carry on! ;)
