She Graces Her Home In God's Beauty: Leaving A Legacy~

Please take a moment to go and visit Mrs. Debbie...
she has a lovely post on today about her sweet Dad's life and
 his legacy. Along with the thought and question of 
"what will we leave behind us"?
It really blessed, encouraged & challenged us...
and we pray it will do the same for you!
Enjoy your visit...and have a happy Thursday!

Many Blessings~

Mothers Day // 2016

God could not be in every place
With loving hands to help erase
The teardrops from each baby's face,
And so He thought of mother.

He could not send us here alone...

And leave us to a fate unknown;
Without providing for His own,
The outstretched arms of mother.

God could not watch us night and day
And kneel beside our crib...
Or kiss our little aches away;
                              And so He sent us mother.

                                 And when our childhood days began,
                                  He simply could not take command.
                                  That's why He placed our tiny hand
                                             Securely into mother's.

The days of youth slipped quickly by,
Life's sun rose higher in the sky.
Full grown were we, yet ever nigh
To love us still, was mother.

And when life's span of years shall end,
I know that God will gladly send,
To welcome home her child again,
That ever-faithful mother.
We love you so much, Mom!
Your 8 Blessings

Enjoying the sunshine....and celebrating our Mom's birthday today.

(a day late.)

Is there even a way to describe the love and influence a Mom has on her husband and children? Thank you Mom, for serving the Lord and being the wonderful example that you are!

We are all blessed beyond measure!

6 years...

This morning I look back and say "how can it be 6 years"? To me it there are days it is just not even real yet, days that it seems longer, days it seems like yesterday.
It still is hard, it hurts. I still have your number in my phone, so if as to call you on a recipe, tell you what my latest sewing/craft venture is! Smile
The thing is I so can remember you saying "as you get older...(ahem) Lori I mean, mature in age, you will see how life begins to look, shorter days, time moving  quickly and years shorter". Okay....I am thinking this is so true.... so much to tell you, the children are so much bigger, older, taller, mature, Jodi finally looks maybe 40, still has clear sparkly eyes that tell much with her saying nothing (still call her bob) smile I think Lisa and I "always" will (forever)....I yes am happy to say her quilt is done and getting used! I am so thankful that Dad is well after open heart surgery, we are all well, Lisa is still doing what she does {smile} and yes, Rob will turn a mature I hear motorcycle ride coming for him? Cougar still spoiled ...........we, continue to do lots of ministry, the boys are all "young men" life keeps moving, moving and waits for no one! Home's still in the process (always) ...camping still happening.... The thing is there are always the holes there of the loved ones that have gone on before us, we still shed tears, laugh at stories and remember the "time when, this, that, etc" the thing is....
yes, I am thankful for the time we had, wish we'd have had so much more, God chose the day the time and we must always give thanks.... I am learning now so much from your leaving and yes, Jackie'O sister of mine...forever I will miss you, for ever I thank God for what we had and for you!
I love and miss you today and always.....................
....I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,
~Philippians 1:3

Morning has Broken

Yesterday morning when my sweet youngest son came down he started singing this....
He said "this was in my head singing"? He has heard it by someone else....?
(we don't listen to this artist?)
Sweet how children think, blessed me!
Have a blessed day and remember to thank God for the new morning!
