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

Verses on the Brain

I Thessalonians 5:4-8

"But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day; we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation."

Another day in the life....

I John 3:18. What a blessing to have a 6 year old writing God's Word with no prompting.

Father, may our actions be in love and truth today.

Jacob wanted to reenact this photo from a while back.

We've got a front entry bench set in place, tile ready for grout, a powder room vanity counter in, a boy's fort trimmed out with a 'clean' floor in place.....progress - Yea!

The last 'messy' project is on tap, stair treads.

Thanks for praying for us. God is good, all the time, for that is HIs nature.

Jacob got to be a part of a home-school presentation day...this was our 'practice run' at home. He did a good job at the 'real thing' as well.

Sorry, the volume on this video is pretty quiet, you'll have to turn it up when Jacob is talking.....

But immediately turn it down when I am clapping after he's done with each part!

Staining vanities

The skin beside my fingernails will be this color for some time....

This is the boys/upstairs bathroom vanity - two square sinks will sit on top.

yea for lights!

And this man gets the SUPER award for taking time to make swords for the boys last night - He's got lots of weight he's carrying at this stage of our lives, and with the help of our JESUS he's doing it very gracefully. What a blessing he is. Thanks God, he's priceless to me.


Paul's Prayers

This man prayed the best things for those he loved - For the Thessalonians, just to name one, "That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory"  - Please Lord, that I would walk worthy of God this day. You've called me unto your kingdom and for your glory may everything be done.

Thanks for praying for us as we attempt to complete this house - we've labeled these next few weeks as 'crunch time' - and we are being 'crunched' in a few ways.....;)
