Kyalynn's Wild Adventure...


Once upon a time there was a beautiful, Asian princess who thought she was big enough to ride her sled down the snowy hill all by herself. So she grabbed her sled and pulled it to the top of the hill, sat down and proceeded down this hill in a stomach-tickling (alarming!) rate. She managed (only God!) to dodge various large and hard trees and finally stopped by running into a soft pine tree! Daddy, who had no idea Kyalynn was on a wild adventure, decided to look and see where she was and saw her trudging up said hill saying "oh, are you alright?" Sean noticed the sled tracks and put 2 and 2 together and realized what had happened. Where was mommy you ask? Well, she had taken Gabriella for bloodwork and then on to Nolan's doctor appointment. Later when mommy came home she was told this story by her eldest son. Needless to say, mommy's jaw was hanging on the ground and she was in disbelief. LOL! Kyalynn is just fine and I actually think she enjoyed her wild adventure because she keeps saying things like, "are you alright?" and "watch out for the tree" and "sled?" During prayer time last night she kept repeating these things and then would smile and clap her hands together. LOL!
Now to make it a bit more clear as to why mommy didn't like the idea of Kyalynn having a wild adventure......the above hill...well actually it isn't a hill it's a mountain! We live on the top of a mountain and trust me when I say it goes straight(!) down. We are surrounded by trees, really, really big trees. And although Kyalynn thinks she is Miss Independent, because of her special needs we need to watch her closely. (!) LOL!
Sean has learned his lesson and knows now to keep his eyes on her because she is quick. LOL! Don't get the wrong impression, Sean is a wonderful daddy and is very attentive. Yesterday, however, that brief moment of time he had his eyes off of her was just long enough for Kyalynn's Wild Adventure. 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…
