Wearing Of the Green...

My sweet little Leprechauns dressed in their obligatory green. :)

We are not Irish but wanting to create as many happy memories as possible this has always been a day of celebration in our home since the oldest were very young. I have oodles of pictures through the years of Zachary and Ryan eating green food, wearing shamrocks, and reading all about St. Patrick. We always start the day with green eggs (see above) and below you will see each child's response. 

Gabriella not enjoying her green eggs and ham! LOL! She was allowed to pass on the eggs and have cereal and that made her happy. 

Connor gave his green eggs a thumbs up and a "can I have more mom?"

Nolan wasn't the least bit bothered by the color and couldn't get them into his mouth fast enough! 

Kyalynn didn't respond one way or another. When she first saw the eggs she did say "oh, what color? They're  green!" LOL! 

We followed the tasty breakfast with a reading of 
one of our favorite books. It just seemed to tie in so well. LOL! 
They also watched Lyle the Friendly Viking from Veggie Tales which talks about
St. Patrick. 

Last night as I was buzzing around trying to accomplish some things while Sean put the kids down for bed Connor was quick to remind me that today would be St. Patty's Day. They might not get the importance of it yet but they know that this day means everything green and look forward to it. Zachary will be partaking of his first corned beef and cabbage tonight at Ericka's house. Honestly, I'd rather have the green eggs! LOL! (I'm not much of a meat person)
 So, here's to a wonderfully green day to you....
Happy St. Patty's Day!!!

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…
