Thankful for Traveling Mercies

I am thankful for modern day transportation.  Although I would love to have a horse and buggy, I know I would not be able to travel very far.  Uh, I don't think I'd like cleaning horse stalls either!!! 

Today eight of us from our church went to Milford, Ohio to Bearing Precious Seeds to help assemble Bibles that contain the Gospel of John, and Romans.  We were able to put together a little over 3,000 of them today.  Just think, our finger prints on the Word of God going "somewhere"!  Who knows in whose hands they will end up. 

We were very blessed in our travel.  Going over to Ohio we came across what looked like a fatal accident.  There were 2 vehicles, and one looked like it was only half there.  White sheets draped the sides.  Traffic was backed up for miles for several hours!  It was a very somber reminder just how fragile life is and at any moment it can be gone.  We did run into rain coming back home tonight and I can say that I was a little nervous. I know I was not the only one praying for our safe return home!

"Thank you Lord that you kept  us safe and gave us a great day!"

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!







MERRY CHRISTMAS 2016

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS!!!!



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! ;)
