Christmas in July, oh no, it is August!

14 Aug

Where does time fly when you are having fun! Life marches on and I am not doing the greatest job at blogging. I was very inspired today when I watched a blogger on a cooking show today, she managed to keep up easily enough! Oh well, I will try again and not be such a sluggish blogger…. So many fun things and events have happened since we last chatted but I will try to share them with you. In February the team went to Myanmar and they loved every minute of it. Jeremy and Kristen worked in an orphanage and loved the kids. Jeremy also got to preach once along with the other team members, Jack and my hubby. Of course, I had a blast with August for 10 days and we had no problems at all. He acted very cold towards his mom and dad when they came back but that soon passed. Here are some pictures from our great summer so far!

Firstly, one of the greatest events…… we are going to be grandparents again!! Yippeeeeeee  Plus Jeremy and Kristen purchased their first home. So happy and blessed.

Congratulations Jeremy, Kristen and August.

Your word for the year….

5 Jan

The new year has begun and now  2011 is being set into order. With many talking about new years resolutions, which I personally do not participate in as I never seem to keep up my end of the bargain with all those promises, I felt that I wanted to have a ‘word’ for the year.  I was somewhat inspired after hearing some others doing the same.  With some thought and prayer, I decided that the word for my year would be HOPEFUL.   After contemplating this for a while, I was directed to the words, Faith, Hope and Love. It seems to me that one cannot be had without the other. Hope being the rope that connects faith and love! Hope being deferred makes you very hopeless and that being very hard to operate in faith or love. I have much to be hopeful for this year in dreams, visions, prophecies, seeing my kids and family reach goals and aspirations, brothers and sisters in Christ having a heart towards the Lord like never before….. and just in life as a general. I am grateful that God has already resolved many of theses hopes in His word and knowing that He is the same yesterday and forever, I have great hope and walk being very HOPEFUL in everything.

Have any of you chosen a word for the year, let me know what it is if so….



The Great Escape…..

30 Mar

After letting my dog dogs outside this morning, I wandered around doing stuff and then went over and opened up the blinds…that Is when I saw two little dogs running past my house, they are running and having fun, they looked like my dogs, those ARE my dogs….!  I then took off running outside and they joyfully ran around the side of the house and went Into the back yard, through the wide open gate,  thus explaining the great escape!  I am not sure how long they were exploring the neighbor hood or where they went or what mischief they were up to but I am very grateful that they returned  home happy and alive!!  I have always wondered If Lacy would return home If she ever escaped , Maddy would probably just wander around for hours, so this puts my mind at peace a little having them return without being bribed with treats or a beatIng 🙂  Not sure how or who left the gate open but all Is now well and we are all accounted for!

Lacy ~ Escape artist #1!

Maddy ~ Escape artist #2.
