Unchanging God

Sometimes things come into our lives that we would rather not deal with.  But life is always changing.  This one thing I know, I know the Unchanging God.  He is the same yesterday, today and forever.  He knows my fears, greatest heartaches, and is concerned with the smallest things in my life. 

The last several-plus weeks have been very trying and exhausting.  Some of it due to the start of school and getting use to a new routine--again.  Some because the nesters have taken turns sharing a virus that kept me out of church for five weeks.  Just when I can get back to church we find out our ONLY vehicle is too dangerous to drive!  We have to rely on our older sons to get Hubby to and from work...we are on week two!  Not to mention heart wrenching things that I can not change because they are out of my control.

Despite all the above mentioned things and unmentioned ones, I will rest in the knowledge that God loves me and wants me to rest in Him.  When I take my eyes off Him and put them on the circumstances I want to quit serving and hide, and was reminded of that this morning!  So I will turn my eyes back on the One who loves me most, God...the same yesterday, today and forever...though my today will be history tomorrow!

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!



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! ;)
