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?)

And We're Off!

The 'ride' arrived Thursday....we got much accomplished today - and bright and early Saturday morning we are off for VA!!!


Thanks for praying for safe travels, for Pa as he drives us, for the boys and I as I attempt 'single parenting', and for Marand who is pretty sad to be missing out. We are gonna miss him too - but are excited to see the house progress when we return!

I'll miss you all here as well - Hooray for vacation - and Lord willing we'll be back in 10 days!  

This is a link to facebook where I posted a video of the boys:

So, I held out for 37 years. It was 37 years of uninterrupted, non rude, or unable to hear conversations, never having misplaced my mobile device, got to stop and ask folks for directions - bliss. Plain and simple, the good old days.

My husband almost shed a tear today when I asked him for a cell phone.

It dawned on me that it was going to be quite difficult to communicate without his cell phone with the boys and I on our VA trek. Pretty hard to catch a 'stand-by' flight without being able to let your ride know whether you got on the plane or not.....not to mention that we are a 'displaced family' as of September 10th (Lord willing, the closing date for the sale of our condo - You can join us in praying that the last hurdle of the home inspection on Sunday at 2:00 goes smoothly)

So my land line phone with old-school answering machine will have no 'land' to sit on :(

All that number will be the same - I'll answer it about as often as I did my home phone - feel free to leave me a message if I don't answer - I'll do my best to check them. If you text me, I'll most likely call you back :)

Sad Day In My Life History.

Room With a View

So thinking maybe we should just leave the roof off (just kidding) It sure would be a 'room with a view!'

Hooray for Marand's office/Lego room floor above my 'school room'/work-out gym ;)

This is looking at Marand's office corner from up-top, the stairs leave off at his door.....that big open section is the 'vaulted living/dining/kitchen area' below.....

This is the view from the guest bedroom - you should come visit us.....when it's done....unless you want come now and put on some work gloves to help us!

This is the view from the bottom of the vaulted area, Living/Dining room area.....hooray for progress!

building up!

So after standing on the second floor and looking out those middle two windows it was decided we're gonna move those two up a bit to catch the whole mountain view. Marand looked aweful funny sinking in his knees, leaning his head to the side, so he could see the top of the mountain!

The wall where Brent is standing is set to stand up first thing today - and then the corner and around to the back of the house! Hooray!

Of course the boys love climbing the ladder to 'help' dad - they give me grey hairs!

The boys and I are looking forward to our motor home VA trek to Ariel's wedding the end of this week - So the posts here will be sparce for a while....


Love This.
