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?)

Website Issues

So, my resident tech guy (of thirteen years, as of tomorrow :) Is working on the websites he manages.....including this I'm not able to upload photos. Bummer huh? So sorry....Lord willing I'll be back up and posting soon.

As for a quick update, we are all well! The certification part of our adoption is finished, and we are fervently praying for just the right placement of kidos in our home - thanks for praying to that end as well.

Marand and I are planning to head to dinner tomorrow night for our 13 year wedding anniversary - I love that guy. Jacob and Isaac are anxious to have a 'man' night with Trevor babysitting.....should come home to interesting stories.

I praise God for all of you praying folk - for my Jesus family - my loved ones - Come visit us!  

Forth of July - Mama Angela - New Car

We had a grand time with my family this weekend in LaJunta! How blessed we are with them!

All four siblings!

And Mama Angela professed faith in Jesus - and was baptized! Praise God, and continued prayers for her faith to grow!

And this got to come home with us from a private party sale:

Our life savings is now sitting in our drive way....but paid in full, no payments! Yea for that!

Honda Pilot 2007; 100,000 miles; hopefully it will last my lifetime :)

Well....Here is genuine proof that 50 happens to the 'best of us'! My beloved sister has a monumental birthday today.

This is the gal that I look to for wisdom - she's 'been there and done that' with most everything, and boy am I blessed to have had her pave the way before me. She has been a good and Godly example for me all my life. Thanks God, for my sister!

We had a ball at the air show a few weeks back.....

We are in the market for a new car....Marand rear-ended another vehicle....and the insurance company deemed my pilot 'totaled' :( Super sad face over here....Please pray for just the right one that we can replace it with...and for our marital bliss to continue, even while sharing his old pickup truck! hahahah!

Still waiting for news that we've been certified to adopt....

we'll keep on waiting on the LORD to renew our strength!


Somebody is 8 years old!

We just had a great time with some great friends and Jesus family for Jacob's 8th birthday...

Marand did a super job of grilling, officiating a 'ninja' game, and teaching through a ninja pipe-cleaner craft - He is my hero.

And what fun it was to watch Jacob open three presents revealing a 'tiger' a 'widow' and and 'island'....

Jacob exclaims: "Dad.....!?! I meant the LEGO set named 'Tiger widow Island'....I didn't want a plastic tiger, a black widow minifigure, and a photo of an island!?!!"  Hahahaha....good one dad.
