Time flies...

I can not believe how time gets away.  I still l have not feeling well with this sinus stuff.  Just when I think I am better here it comes again! 

Life has been busy with home and school.  One of our sons came over on Monday over the last couple of weeks to help Hubby get some heavy cleaning in the storage area and rearranging done also.  He also spent time repairing some "dings" on the walls of our family room and painting.  Looks really nice.  We went with a milk chocolate brown.  Makes the room so cozy. 
New slip covers on the sofas also!  The room was in need of a change.  

Snow, snow, snow...kind of tired of it.  Well, at least the mess it drags in!  We  had a nice snow Sunday afternoon into Monday morning.  About 2 1/2 to 3 inches.  I heard on the radio this morning that we are in for 2 to 4 more inches tonight!  If only the snow would stay off the the street, sidewalk and parking lots!  Our dog, Lucy, was trying to catch the snow that the boys were throwing into the air.  This snow was the light fluffy stuff, not good for making snowballs or snowmen! They still had a good time in it.

Our scholars are always complaining that they never get a snow day!  Well, I surprised them and did not call them for school on Monday morning.  I decided to let them sleep in and have a snow day after all!  They did not believe me when they finally woke up and I told them it was a snow day.  They actually thought was teasing!  Actually, we have to be at church for cantata practice on Saturday morning at 8:30 and then will be going to on of the nursing homes for a Christmas service and singing.  So I thought I could show a little bit of Christmas spirit and give them the day off.  I know, I know...what a nice mother I am!  I must admit, I surprise myself sometimes! ;-)

I was reading in my devotions today in 2 Corinthians 5.  Walking by faith.  That is a hard thing to do, especially when we are use to using our five sences for everything.  Walking by faith is so hard because we live in an instant world!  We want everything now, or close to now as possible. 

Our family has been living without a job for the last 3 months.  There has been no paycheck.  A litlle scary with 13 mouths in a home.  We like food, heat, electricity, water, etc.  Of course I want Husband to have a job NOW!  I want to go to the grocery store and pick out my meals.  I want to be able to go buy my 7 year old son a needed pair of jeans.   Do you see how those sentences have started out...

"I want..."

Guess what...?  It's not about me, it is all about Him.  And walking by faith, and letting God take the credit and the glory and honor for EVERYTHING! More of Him, less of me.  Oh let's not forget how God works in other peoples lives.  Their ears, eyes and hearts have been opened to Him.  God has used others to provide for us, and He gets...
all the glory!

I am no one special, just a child of God that is learning everyday the lesson of walking by faith.  Some days I fail the lesson, but God is there to forgive me and put me back on track when I come to Him with a repentive heart.  We serve an awesome God!

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!
