Awana Games

Last Saturday, we all packed up for the big event! An event my youngest has worked so very hard for.  An event you get chosen to be a part of!  It's a big deal and we are so proud of our youngest!  Yes, my friends, it's the annual Awana Games!  It's huge, it's wild, and it's a load of fun!  So many young kids gather in the name of our Lord to play all sorts of crazy games!  It was so much fun and we can't wait for next year!

Our red team girls lined up and ready.

Our girl won this event!!!!

Pull RED!  PULL!!!

That's our girl!!!

Get Ready!
Great Friends!

And this is my prayer, that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ-to the glory and praise of God.  Philippians 1:9-11

Homestead Life

Well, the life of having animals can sometimes be hard. I can't imagine having a real farm!  Two days ago we lost one of our chickens!  I do not know the reason for her dieing.   In fact the day before all the girls looked to be super healthy and well.  So, when my youngest went out the next day in the afternoon, she was very shocked to see her little chicken curled up in the straw.  She did handle it very well.  No tears...just worry and wonder.  

So, I know I have been sharing so many chicken photos. I promise I will try and take different scenery!  I just wanted to share a little reality to the homestead life.  This is the first chicken we have lost to an unknown reason!  

Also, today (not shown in these photos) the rain has come back full force!   Right when I thought things would dry up, the Lord has given us more rain.   

Have a blessed day!  And may God lead your way!

3-12-14  It was another beautiful day!  Our backyard lake was drying up!

Spring IS here!

Well, today is a good day!   Thank you to our Heavenly Father for a little sunshine!  See, I knew when the ugly, nasty, and wet weather came there would be a light at the end of the tunnel.  And yes, it all does make you appreciate the beauty even more!   I thank the Lord for all of it. The ugly and the beautiful. 
Through a day of homeschooling you could just feel a little difference in everybody's attitudes. You could feel the light shine in all of us. God is so good.  When I took my eldest girl to her first day of Driver's Training (yes, it is happening...my teen will be driving soon!), the car was warm!   The sun had heated up our car seats and I didn't even need to turn the heat on!  Just felt so good! 
Then when I returned home, I felt "springy" and decided to walk my dog.  It was fabulous and I couldn't help but feel revived!  I also let the chicken ladies loose and they seem like new birds as well!  Isn't it amazing at what a little sun and warmth can do?  I hope and pray more of you out there felt a little sunshine and peace today!  A little more energy and a sense of Gods wonders!

God Bless you all!  Remember too look for all His beauty!
