Disney on Ice...

Saturday we were so blessed by Sean's parents (the grands!) for all of us (except for the 2 oldest who weren't interested in seeing Disney, go figure! LOL!) to attend Disney on Ice. It was a surprise for the littles and we weren't sure how Kyalynn would do but they all did great! Even Nolan who sat on my lap content the whole time. He is such a gem! :)
The show was excellent! I loved seeing Connor's face when he saw Buzz Lightyear and the Beast from Beauty and the Beast. Kyalynn was so excited she kept clapping her hands and feet together for the Lion King part and when Mulan was skating she kept telling me she wanted to go down there (to the ice) and so I told her she could stand up and dance at her seat. I don't know, maybe God gave me a glimpse of her future?! Maybe she will dance or skate. No matter what His plans for her, they will be good, He promises. (Jeremiah 29:11) Gabriella was harder to read as she sat completely still and emotionless the whole time. As we left I was carrying her and asking her what she thought and she said she liked it and her favorite part was Mickey Mouse wearing the princess dress (Minnie Mouse!LOL!) She has since talked about Minnie Mouse alot and keeps telling me just how much she really liked her dress as she spins around in a circle. This girl and her dresses! :)
I'll admit I did get emotional a couple of times. I know, you are thinking how can you get emotional about Disney, right?! But the emotions came when I saw my childrens' faces, their excitement and joy, when I thought how this is the first time they've ever seen something like that and how different their lives might have been if they had not been adopted, and how much they are all loved. God is so good!

Thank you grandma and grandpa for blessing us yet again! You guys are the best!! We love you!

Hi Lisa,

Here is where I get my palm oil..

http://www.wildernessfamilynaturals.com/natural_palm_oil.htm

It's liquid when it's warm and solid like shortening when it's cooler outside. It't definitely not tasteless, but not offensive. I've actually learned to enjoy the flavor, but recommend you use it sparingly in the beginning.

HTH...

to your health,
Missy

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…
