We were privileged to have the Gualts with us for a visit.  It's hard to believe it's been more than a year since we last saw them in Africa.  We really appreciate them coming a long distance just to be with us for about a day and a half.

This message a week late...

We are so blessed to have the children God has given us!  We simply can't believe that Isaac came along 11 years ago! May he continue to grow in the nurture and admonition of the Lord!

Barn Boards

We brought a puzzle back with us from South Africa and wanted to frame it somehow.  After seeing all the old abandoned houses and barns in this area we decided to do a barn board frame.  It was my first attempt so it has some "issues" but overall it turned out alright.

Birthday Blessings

We are blessed with the gift of Ezra's life. We are blessed that he is healthy and strong. We are blessed that he can see. We are blessed that he has reached one year of life.

 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring. Isaiah 44:3

The Goal

"Few have a vision statement, a document that seeks to inspire the church [family] by drawing out truths from Scripture and showing how these truths should form the identity of the group and lead to Christ-honoring practice." Finny Kuruvilla

Last Year

I am in the process of sorting pictures....hundreds of them.  I saw this one from last summer that I never shared with anyone. Looking forward to summer!

Someone has said that "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results"

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
Galatians 6:7

Reaching out...

"Is God bored, in you, because you never do anything He cares about?"  Daniel Esh

Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble... James 1:27a

Is Life Difficult for You?

Though the fig tree may not blossom, 
Nor fruit be on the vines; 
Though the labor of the olive may fail, 
And the fields yield no food; 
Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, 
And there be no herd in the stalls-

Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, 
I will joy in the God of my salvation. 
The LORD God is my strength; 
He will make my feet like deer's feet, 
And He will make me walk on my high hills.

Habakkuk 3:17-19
