Tonight was our church Christmas Cantata.  It was beautiful.  The choir worked hard and I think we were able to be a blessing to some people tonight.  It's always kind of sad when it comes to an end, but next year's cantata is not that far away!!!  {Well, if  you like to plan a bit ahead it's not far away!}  We also had a dessert fellowship afterwards.  It is a lot of work for the kitchen help, but always worth it.  Hubby and I like to watch as people go through the line.  Love watching how everyone interacts with one another.  I think everyone had a good time.

The Pastor's Fellowship that our family helped serve was wonderful!  We had plenty of food and know the partakers of the meal were well fed and did not leave hungry!  I always count it a blessing when our family can help out.  We may not be able to give large sums of money, but we have plenty of hands that can be of help in a number of ways!

At last, this evening, I leave you with a prayer request.  A young lady in our church is going to Kentucky tomorrow for thyroid cancer surgery on Tuesday.  This will not be her first time for the surgery.  The cancer is rather "entangled".  Our prayer is that God would be glorified in this.  Of course we would love to see a miracle and find out the cancer is gone.  But the young lady has such a wonderful spirit about her toward this.  Would you pray for Cara?  I know the power of pray is amazing!  (Daughter-in-law #3 experienced that this week herself!)

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! ;)
