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!

Graduation 2017 Post

Finally, here are pictures from Son #6 and Daughter #5's graduation.  I finally figured out what I was doing wrong downloading pictures!!

They Said "I Do" and Here We Grow Again!!

"I do!"  Lovely words.  Son #4 and Bride were married on the 31st of March.  After weeks of planning they are finally married and home from their honeymoon!  (pictures to follow soon)   We are pleased to have a new daughter in the family!

Speaking of new...yes, a new babe is growing...Daughter #1 and Son-in-love #1 are expecting their second child in the fall!  Grandson E told us!  At first we just looked at him, dead silence in the room, and looked at his momma...and she was smiling!  YAY!  Our "grand" total will be 11 come fall!!!!!!

Soon we will meet Granddaughter E...!  Eight weeks until her due date...but will probably meet her in the next few weeks!  Everyday in the womb is a day of victory!

That's all for now!  I have had to update this about 3 times!  It has been in my "save" for several weeks!  As soon as I get a few minutes of free time I will be back!
