March Madness

....No, this has nothing to do with basketball.  It does however have to do when the "ball is in my court".  Let me explain.....

One of my favorite blogs is Deep Roots at Home.  Jacqueline is such a blessing.  I have met and talked with her at the home school convention we have attended in the recent years.  You feel like you have shared an afternoon and a cup of tea with her after talking for only a few minutes. 

While reading  Jacqueline's blog today, her post from February 27 was amazing.  I have read the short story she has posted some time ago.  It brought back to mind what I need to do when "the ball is in my court".

You see, the last several months plus have been weary.  We have had some major set backs.  Set backs that only God could take care of for us.  Most were never mentioned outside the family.  Some we needed direction and we asked questions.  A couple were shared only with someone close; one shared as a prayer request.  ALL taken to the throne of grace.   God has answered some in a mighty way.  In a way He only could.  I call those, ''all of God and none of me" answers.  You may know the kind, ones where it take a miracle. 

When the weary days come, where do I find myself?  Oh, I trust God, knowing He knows our need and when it needs to be taken care of.  But what about me to my husband or children?  Am I a joy or an encourager?  Have I lightened the daily load? Sadly to say, more times than not, I am not the joy, encourager, or load lifter.

If you have not already "clicked" over to Deep Roots at Home, why not do it now?  I know you will come away blessed!

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! ;)

MERRY CHRISTMAS 2016

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS!!!!
