Long time...

Wow!  It seems like it has been FOREVEVR since I have posted!  I guess it has been a little over a week! :-( 

The weekend following Thanksgiving I ended up with a head cold.  I thought I was feeling better but it turned into a sinus infection.  I still am not feeling 100%, the top of my teeth still hurt.  I really feel it if I have to bend down to get anything.  Yesterday I started out with a headache that turned into a migraine.  It was about 4 o'clock this afternoon before it was totally gone.

The last couple of weeks have been real challenging for our family.  There have been a couple of times I wondered if God had forgotten us.  But just a quick as I wondered the Holy Spirit was kind enough to "nudge" me back to the right way of thinking! 

In our small human minds we tend to limit God.  I was reading in my devotions today Psalm 46.  One of my favorite verses in this passage is the first part of verse ten, "Be still, and know that I am God:".  You know, when we let our minds wander, we forget to "be still".  I love the part that says, "and know".  There is no thinking in it, it is a simple statement; a fact; "that I am God:".  The Author and Creator of the the universe has not forgotten me, He has not moved, He is not late, He is always on time.

Our circumstances have not changed, but our thinking is changing every day.  We are drawing closer to Him, knowing that all we have need of will be met by Him, in His time.

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! ;)
