To Start Your Week...

Just a bit of cuteness!! LOL!

Little man is growing so fast! He is walking up the stairs and holding onto the railing all by himself (with mom/dad right behind, just in case. LOL!)
He knows his body parts and can name them and point to them.
He knows the animals and what sounds they make and can also pick them out of books.
He loves books and asks daddy or I to read to him by bringing the book to us and saying "plz" :)
He has started to say "cook" when he wants to help me with supper.
He loves to rearrange (just like his mom!) and often undoes the arranging I have just done. LOL!
He is saying so many words right now and Gabriella loves to sit beside him and say "Nolan can you say _____". That's probably how he knows all the words he does. :)
When he wants his diaper changed he will go and get the diaper and bring it to me!
He has been sitting on his potty chair but most times pees right after he gets off! :)
He makes the funniest faces and is quite a little ham.

For New Year's Eve we had bought the little's glow sticks and Saturday night Nolan got a hold of one and was gnawing on it and got a tiny bit of the insides in his mouth. I was tucking Connor in for the night when Nolan came to me and said "yuck" and stuck his tongue out. Of course, I had no idea what was going on and asked him what's in your mouth. He showed me the glow stick bracelet and said "yuck". A little panic ensued when brother Ryan found out and kept saying that glow sticks are toxic and we'd better call Poison Control. It wasn't like he drank it. He might have had a drop or two but Ryan was adamant so to appease his worried mind we Googled it and after reading about 4 sites (that all said the same things! Non-toxic!) he finally felt relieved and the night could continue without alarm. LOL! (But I must say, what an awesome brother!)

Nolan keeps us laughing and on our toes! LOL! What a terrific blessing he is to all of us. Here's to a week filled with God's blessings and a bit of cuteness thrown in! 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 sometimes 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…
