Messy, Messy, Messy....

Our Samuel T. loves a good mess. In fact, he must think I love me some mess too because he's always creating them for me! LOL! The boy can walk into a CLEAN room and in less than 30 seconds wreak major havoc! :)  He is ALL boy and I adore every square inch of him!!

Here Samuel decided to get into the cream and put a thick layer in his hair for extra conditioning. This is E*cerin cream, very thick and lasts awhile on the skin, has done wonders for his eczema but his hair...not so much. :) This was his "busy work" while I was in the other room doing schooling with the kids. HA! As I was cleaning up this mess off the sofa he was busy in the kitchen pulling out my cookie sheets...BANG! CRASH! SMASH! and giggling the whole time.  

The last couple of days he's been quiet and just lying around due to the flu and I gotta tell ya, it's just not the same around here. Give me my mess-making, noise-creating, ALL-boy boy any day! :) We LOVE our Samuel T!




I had to throw this one in because the boy is such a riot! He makes the craziest faces and expressions. They just make me crack up!

Clearly, you must LIKE his messes (or so he thinks) . . . because you pull out the CAMERA and take pictures when he makes the best messes.

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…
