Yet It Lives

Generation follows generation--yet it lives.
Nations rise and fall--yet it lives.
Kings, dictators, presidents come and go--yet it lives.
Hated, despised, cursed--yet it lives.
Doubted, suspected, criticized--yet it lives.
Condemned by atheists--yet it lives.
Scoffed at by scorners--yet it lives.
Exaggerated by fanatics--yet it lives.
Misconstrued and misstated--yet it lives.
Ranted and raved about--yet it lives.
Its inspiration denied--yet it lives.

Yet it lives--as a lamp to our feet.
Yet it lives--as a light to our path.
Yet it lives--as the gate to heaven.
Yet it lives--as a standard for childhood.
Yet it lives--as a guide for youth.
Yet it lives--as an inspiration for the matured.
Yet it lives--as a comfort for the aged.
Yet it lives--as food for the hungry.
Yet it ives--as water for the thirsty.
Yet it lives--as rest for the weary.
Yet it lives--as light for the heathen.
Yet it lives--as salvation for the sinner.
Yet it lives--as grace for the Christian.

To know it is to live it.
To love it is to accept it.
To accept it means life eternal.

"Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away."

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! ;)
