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?)

Summer Camp!

Beautiful Things

We are surrounded by them, beautiful things, do we see them? Yes, we 'mountain dwellers' have a distinct advantage in the scenery catergory.....but sadly, I'd have to reply, that often I don't see them. I don't think I can stop and look....Time marches on so steadily, moments come and go so quickly.

I'm convinced that only when our eyes are FIXED on our JESUS, do we really see anything.

We allowed our 'Three Bigs' to head off to camp IdRaHaJe (I'd rather have Jesus) this past week....praying for their continued growth and understand of how vital their walk with JESUS is in their lives. Isaac did well for his first time away from 'mama'...

and I can't wait to hear about Jacob (Who I failed to get a photo of....) and Zaria's week in Teepee Camp! We pick them up tomorrow!

So...let's do it....unplug from our 'phones'...breath deeply some fresh air...go for an early morning drive....just look for the beautiful, God given things.

K.J.'s Birthday!

Hooray for this 4 year old cutie patootie!

We had a fun family time jumping and climbing!!




14 short years ago!

Only with JESUS. May we be ready....the spotless bride he is coming for!

Old-School Fun

So this year, for our 14th anniversary (July 18th) Marand and I decided to take the whole family for an 'adventure'!

We had a ball at the Winter Park Rec center - swimming - picnicking- and just enjoying each other! What a gift. Thanks God.

Only to return home to some toys given to us by an older couple who were moving! Yea for old-school games and toys!!

Now for the purging old toys to make way for the new 'old' ones!

I love that our relationship with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit, through God JESUS is likened to a Father/child relationship. What a daily, moment by moment challenge to do the things I'm asking them to do, and act in the way I'm asking them to act.....just like God does for us; His adopted children.

Isaiah 30:18  "And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you; for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him."
