First Day of School

Wow our summer has come and gone. Tal and Hunter started their first day at Amelia County Middle School. Tal is in the 7th grade and Hunter is in the 6th. They really are growing up fast. They got on the bus for the first time in their school days. They were excited. Me on the other hand was sad. Well, they made it to school just fine. I made it home before the bus dropped them off and was able to greet them home. They had a GREAT day!! Made lots of new friends.
We, as a family, are embarking on brand new territory. Kind of scary for me, but Tal and Hunter are very excited for this new experience in their life.
Hope all has a great school year!!!

Anonymous good when doing something good for someone and don't really want that person to know it is you. Funny how when people want to make a statement and don't want to face up to it. That is such a cowards way of doing things. Step up and own up to it was you that said it. Felt strongly enough to say something then back it up with your name. We have secret sisters at our church...we remain anonymous, at least we hope we do, for six months. That is using anonymous properly.
My husband is still right about weeding the garden.
I also know the Bible story "he without sin cast the first stone". Well it seems here it comes to right and wrong. "Weeds" are wrong for our garden. My children and my parents and my friends are part of my church garden. Deuteronomy 32:35 To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.
Romans 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
Things and people get handed over to God!
God takes care of all in HIS own time!!

Weeding the Garden

I am very close to my parents/family, and I hurt when they hurt. Well the longer I am married my husband feels as hurt as I do when my family is hurting. God is doing something with our church that we know not of. My husband told me wednesday evening, while we were sitting in church, you have to weed the garden to get things to grow. he seems to be very wise at times. You know something, he is right. If you leave weeds in your garden they soon take over every good thing that was growing. Have you ever noticed "pretty" weeds. They look pretty but they are not good for your grass or garden. If we don't take of our weeds...God will. Hey when we discover weeds/battle are we going to run like a girly boy or face it with God?

Pictures from a few years ago.

I have been looking at pictures stored on my computer and found some from a few years ago. I hope you enjoy them.

Dr visits

Tal and Hunter both had physicals and shots yesterday. They both are very healthy!! Thank you Lord! Tal has a bladder infection. Glad she went. The dr told Tal she would be about 5'2" -5'5" tall and Hunter is going to be over 6'. I can't believe how big they are getting and growing up. They really are great gifts from above!!
Time is just flying by with them. WOW!!

Parents off to Idaho!!

Well my parents left yesterday to be with Tanyon and Tanyon's parents. They sure are missed. Idaho is too far away! However, it is a good place for parents to be at right now.
God seems to be doing things that we know not of. I am glad my father is a strong but very loving preacher. I really HATE to see him and my church being hurt, but my dad is a GREAT man. He handles everything that comes his way with such grace and a great deal of mercy.
Thanks dad for sticking by the stuff and never giving up. Mom thanks for being such a stronghold and constant for dad.
We have THEE best church! Thru my dad's eyes we as a congregation see God's Glory!!!
