It's the little things....

Last Sunday as we drove to church Connor asked us how a certain song went that we sing in worship. You know when the words are on the tip of your tongue but you just can't get them off? Well that's what we were wrestling with. LOL! Anyhow, I told Connor why don't you pray and ask God to have them sing that song today in worship that way you can remember the words. So he did and when we entered church (we were a bit late) they were singing that exact song!! What a great faith builder for him (and us!).

Nolan Elijah brings so much joy and his designer outfits cause us all to laugh out loud most times. I'm so thankful for this little love bug!!

Seeing the little's all playing a game together nicely always brings happiness to my day.

And little Samuel...enjoying some light reading. LOL! The Portable Pediatrician. Actually, he gives it a 2 thumbs up for taste ability! :)


Love those great moments!!!

Your kids- adorable....and Samuel- yeah Joanna likes to "taste" so many things.....yikes :) Oh yeah, and make phone calls, and press all the printer buttons, eat the dog food....he he he - oh fun days :) But look at his smile- who can resist???

Nolan is quite the trend setter! Too cute for words. I'm so glad that my kiddos aren't the only ones to have so much fun dressing up. I have an entire Facebook album devoted to GracieGirl's unique outfits!

I can see that Samuel is getting around very well. That book looks mighty tasty!

Very cool about Connor and his song, and I love the picture of the kids playing the game together. My littles actually played a board game nicely together yesterday, which I really appreciated because "nicely" isn't always a word I can use when they play games together! ;)

Many blessings!

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…
