Aw..... :)


Our sweet Samuel....such a precious blessing in our lives! Although he doesn't talk yet he still gets his point across, let me tell ya. LOL! We've been trying to teach him signs and so far he can do hat, more, cheese, and a very iffy Jesus. :)

He is ALL boy, climbing on top the table, wrestling his siblings, playing outside and using the furniture like a jungle gym. Oh and did I mention that his nickname had been "hammerhead" for awhile because he loved to headbutt....the floor...the couch...his siblings...my leg. OUCH! I think we mostly have that behavior licked....at least for now. :) 

 He loves trucks and construction equipment and will rifle through our bookshelf loaded with books until he finds just the right one. Then he will bring it to me smiling, grunting and pointing at the dumptruck. He will turn around and ease himself backwards onto my lap and then settles in for me to read him his book. Precious moments for sure.

He is finally able to wear 18 month clothing. (He will be two next month). The boy hates sleep. Seriously, nap time is craziness. He sleeps maybe 20 minutes if I'm lucky and at night, ummm, yeah, still not sleeping through the night...him or me! And when he wakes if he doesn't see me he's very unhappy. So most wake-ups find him crying- not happy and smiling. :( But he settles quickly when he's in his momma's arms. :)

I could go on and on about this little gem. He is such a fun gift from God to us, one we weren't expecting, but are surely enjoying every moment of!!!

I had to laugh about Samuel getting his point across without talking. I'm sure he does! :) What a cutie. Sorry about the sleep thing; you *know* I understand that one! We also had two head-butters; I was very thankful when that stage ended!
Love the picture of your little guy!

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…
