Connor-isms....

Connor is quite a character, just ask anyone who knows him in real life! He says the funniest things and doesn't even realize why we are laughing. Here is just a small taste of how Connor sees life....

Look mom, a buzzquito. (mosquito)

Mom, I just saw a Frenchworm. (after my brain worked really hard I finally figured out he meant an inchworm!)

Look mom, I'm going on a hatfari. (safari)

I'm also realizing he is listening to others talking even if it doesn't seem like it. Last night Gabriella came running in to tell me that the dog skunked (pooped) in the yard. I went out and realized it was just some of those weird black mushrooms growing in the yard. Yuck! Anyways, before I had a chance to explain what it was Connor was pointing and saying look mom, crap. I thought I couldn't have possibly heard him right, he must have said crab. So I kept asking "what did you say?" and he kept repeating it. Yup, he wasn't saying crab he was saying the other! Just when we realized what he was really saying he fell down on the ground and immediately popped right back up because he thought he had landed in the black stuff. It was hysterical and needless to say we started laughing. Then after we got serious again, in my firmest tone I explained we don't say crap. Connor has problems with remembering some things long term but I'm hoping this isn't one of them! LOL!!

Are You Ready?

As a pastor, I'm often called upon when life "vanishes like a mist." One of the most powerful examples I've seen of this was Stan Gerlach, a successful businessman who was well known in the community. Stan was giving a eulogy at a memorial service when he decided to share the gospel. At the end of his message, Stan told the mourners, "You never know when God is going to take your life. At that moment, there's nothing you can do about it. Are you ready?" Then Stan sat down, fell over and died. His wife and sons tried to resuscitate him, but there was nothing they could do - just as Stan had said a few minutes earlier.
I'll never forget receiving that phone call and heading over to the Gerlach house. John, a son, stepped out of the car weeping. He asked me, "Did you hear the story? Did you hear? I'm so proud of him. My dad died doing what he loved doing most. He was telling people about Jesus."  I was asked to share a word with everyone ga…

The Old Rugged Cross...

Sean and the guys are between jobs right now and so Zachary has been helping me with odd jobs here around the house. It has been a HUGE blessing to me!  Leaves I never finished raking are finally removed, a campfire pit has been built, a shed sorted and organized (Hallelujah!) and best of all, my Old Rugged Cross is erected! Isn't it terrific?! I've been wanting to build one since watching the Fireproof movie. Zack situated it so I can see it when I look out the window over my kitchen sink. :) He outdid himself on it. He really roughed up the wood and even burnt it to give it that ruggedness I love. There are nail marks in it too. As Zachary carried the cross to set it up Kyalynn kept saying, "look, it's Jesus the Christ, yes it is". LOL! The kids love visiting the cross and this morning Connor was excited to tell me that he was praying at the cross and talking with Jesus. So glad.

Now she's....

11! Can hardly believe our precious, tiny, happy girl is 11 years old!  She's the first one home and I have no doubt that her contagious joy  helped propel us on to adopt 4 more times. :) 



She is a lover of all things but especially birthdays! If she hears it's someones' birthday she gets so excited and plans to be at their party even if she wasn't invited. LOL! She's been diligently reminding us every.single.day sometimes every.minute.of.every.day that her birthday was coming up. There were only two things she wanted.....a Veggie Tales Lord of the Beans dvd and a harp. Yes, you read that right....a harp! Oh my, this girl is a big dreamer but that's better than not dreaming at all! :) So Sean and I set our brains to thinking how we could pull this off for our girl and my man came through!! Check out this beautiful harp he threw together. 

And it's the perfect size for her and even plays music! Sweet! Kyalynn was thrilled and is so cute playing her harp. She als…
