From His Word

Joshua 24:15
"If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."

Prayer and Praise

  • God's Perfect Provision
  • Allow us to teach our children His ways
  • His pefect plan for children (brothers & sisters?)

Trim, and Hide-Outs

by Rachel

September 20th, 2014

Marand and another man are working on trimming out the windows these days - I'm thrilled with the 'super reasonable trim' they figured out. The drywall will butt right up against the edge of that wood piece on the side. It's gonna look great when stained dark brown!

and the 'Secret Hide-Out' in the boys room is getting ready for drywall!

Not sure who is more excited about this.....

All three of them think it's gonna be pretty great!

and I'm thinking this Coke-a-Cola laundry/mud room is gonna be pretty great as well!

Hooray for friends and JJ's 6th birthday!

I'm enjoying the read through the book of Jeremiah these days.....4:4 "Circumcise yourselves to the LORD..." What a challenge!

Got a yummy box of apples with our CSA Miller Farms share - Tried my hand at a pie with Pillsbury's help - Yum!

Had a great day chasing fall colors and pet-sitting with these two cuties!

Seriously - breathtakingly - beautiful up here.

Jacob signed his school constitution on the anniversary of America's Constitution signing....

and there was cake!

Jacob had an encounter with the ground under the swings at school today....He's not gonna'jump on the swings' quite so fast next time....

and hooray for a boiler in our house today!

Marand is sitting beside me listening to U-Tube videos on how to build stairs ;) That's coming soon!

Marand brought in some 'temp lights' tonight, it's getting dark earlier and earlier!

(This is a shot from Big Elk Drive, side door into the mud/laundry room - and big front door)



Progress...and Life!

Sorry for the delay in posts over here these days....We are still alive, doing well, and plugging right along!

The house build had to take a back seat while we did punch-list type items on the condo before it sold - as well as Spiffing up (painting, new walls) of the new office - settling in over here, etc. Now Marand is back at it and making good progress. God is graciously allowing a fervently prayed for 'Indian Summer September' up here, the weather has been beautiful. The changing of the aspens is beautiful. I've got my camera in my purse today to take photos! We've got the lower level windows in, and Marand said today he was meeting the vacuum guy there to see if we could get a system installed. Hopefully outside bricks started Monday, and rough-in inspections next week.....We'll see how it all pans out - I'll get some photos for you!

We had a ball at Miller Farms on Monday....PHOTOS HERE ON FACEBOOK -

Would you please pray for Kathleen's mama in OK (Granny B)  her earthly body is getting tired of this old world. I know it's breaking Kathleen's heart not to be closer to her.

Closing Day

by Rachel

September 10th, 2014

Woke up a bit sleepy from our Casa Bonita night with Mr. Matt and Mama Sarah yesterday,

but it was totally worth it!

(Marand is the one who is REALLY tired....he's been readying the condo for the past two days, sleeping there on the floor...working well into the night...Praiseing God for him! He is a TROOPER!)

(Sometimes I just don't care for computer programs!! Sorry I can't get this turned right!)


Today is closing day on the condo I purchased in 2001. Bitter sweet, but praising God that it sold! We are going to miss the view from the front door - Neighbor Mr. Tom readying for a rafting trip, and the creek!


Isaiah 40:28-31

"Hast thou not known? Hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, faints not, neither is weary? There is no searching of his understanding. He gives power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall; But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

Trust in Him Oh My Soul......nothing better than this one in your pocket today:

Isaiah 41:10 

"Fear thou not; for I am with thee; be not dismayed; for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness."

I am looking forward to the day when I, in full glorified being, know the power of the Great I AM, and fall on my face before Him.

These photos are from our trip, a carousel ride in Burlington CO!
