This Boy....

Samuel T. is a ball of action. LOL! He has a stealth mode and too many times we have found him at the top of the steps banging on the door to come in. So his climbing skills are first rate! :)  If there is an open door you can bet he will be out it before you can even turn around and the couch....well that's his own personal jungle gym. LOL! He likes to climb all the way to the top of it so he can look out the window and see what's going on. 


He is so stinkin' serious with most folks but he has a tremendously funny side he shares often with us. His face in this picture cracks me up! 


Samuel has a unique way of getting around these days. Although he can walk if we hold his hand he hasn't tried nor does he have any desire (we've tried enticing him with cookies with no luck) to walk on his own. So, this is how he gets around. It's more than a crawl but less than a walk. :) 



And there he goes. Just look at that cute little baby bum and those chubby legs!! :) 


Seriously contemplating the state of the world. LOL! 


So happy with the state of his world!! :) 

I'm in the process of working on a post about Samuel's story and what God is teaching me through this precious treasure! So stay tuned......

Samuel's face in that first picture is too cute for words, and I just love his chunky little thighs! I was going to ask you if he was walking because he sure looks steady on his feet in recent pictures. I love the way he gets around! I hope you have video of that. :) Looking forward to reading about Samuel's story...
Love,

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…
