Summer Happenings

Well, it has been an interesting summer.  We have been keeping very busy with the grandchildren and homestead projects.  We are gearing up for school to start in August.  Well...at least it is on this old momma's mind.  The scholars will be returning to the Christian school this year, as hubby is blessed with classes!  I am sad thinking of them being away, but happy that the scholars are with their dad.  By the way...we are down to the last four in school!!!! 

The young ladies have been babysitting nieces and nephews this summer.  They have also been staying several days at the siblings home "just because".  The young men have been helping out at the church off and on with weeding, cleaning a shelter house, etc.

Hubby has been the taxi driver for the family...I have been keeping busy with card projects for my ministry and Summer Bible Conference.  I need to make a couple of sheets for our Granddaughter E, but they are quick to whip up so I keep putting it off.  Not to mention she is still tiny enough to be in a bassinet.

Daughter #2 and fiancé came home from Georgia over the 4th of July.  We had such a good time!  Dog-gone it no one thought to take pictures!

Here are a few projects I have been working on.

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!!!!



They Said "I Do" and Here We Grow Again!!

"I do!"  Lovely words.  Son #4 and Bride were married on the 31st of March.  After weeks of planning they are finally married and home from their honeymoon!  (pictures to follow soon)   We are pleased to have a new daughter in the family!

Speaking of new...yes, a new babe is growing...Daughter #1 and Son-in-love #1 are expecting their second child in the fall!  Grandson E told us!  At first we just looked at him, dead silence in the room, and looked at his momma...and she was smiling!  YAY!  Our "grand" total will be 11 come fall!!!!!!

Soon we will meet Granddaughter E...!  Eight weeks until her due date...but will probably meet her in the next few weeks!  Everyday in the womb is a day of victory!

That's all for now!  I have had to update this about 3 times!  It has been in my "save" for several weeks!  As soon as I get a few minutes of free time I will be back!
