Life...

Psalm 145:1-5

1) I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name forever and ever.
2) Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name forever and ever.
3) Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.
 4) One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.
5) I will speak of the glorious honor of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.

Life is...well life.  Some days are wonderful, and some not so wonderful.  Some days, it seems, would be better spent in bed, hiding under the covers.  But it would not change the circumstances.  

God has been so good to our family.  We are going on six months with no job or income.   But God has not forgotten us.  He, in His timing {which is always the perfect timing}, gives us what we need.  From time to time Hubby is able to pick up an "odd" job--for exactly what is needed.  Sometimes God  has used someone to bless us financially for exactly what is needed.  Bags of food brought to our home or left on the porch.  He has protected our family from illness.  We have had colds, a sour tummy or two, and I had a sinus infection.  But the Great Physician took us through it.

The point is, God is good all the time, and all the time God is good!  He is unchangeable.
He has the best interest in mind for our family--all 13 of us living under one roof.  Our eyes need to stay focused on Him and not the situation.  He has not failed us. What we are going through has nothing to do with us, but it is ALL ABOUT HIM!  My children are experiencing first had the greatness of our Mighty God.  One day, if the Lord tarries in His coming, they will be able to "declare thy mighty acts".

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! ;)
