Summer Catch up pt. 1

Wow. I realized today that our last "family up-date" was at the end of May! My, how the time flies...and lots has gone on! :)  So....without further a do here is some of what we have been up to!

Piano recital
Fathers day camping
Strawberry season
Daddy & Momma date lunch
And grass mowing :)
This was the first piano recital for me ever...
it was a great experience!

 Due to LOTS of rain in the beginning of the season, the strawberries did not last long! Above:

(we pick for a local farmer, meaning all of his pre-picked orders!)

Should I jump?!?!

For camping...yep, we I forgot the camera! Oops! So, this is a pic from last year...but you still get the idea! *smile*

This was a special afternoon for Daddy & Momma! They went for a walk so...some of the younger siblings and I brainstormed and got to work prepping things...from the the the food it all came together so gorgeous and Dad & Mom had a lovely time!
Sweet tea, chicken salad & green salad made the perfect lunch! (oh yeah...and chips!)
Family zoo trip
Vacation Bible School
Matthew's birthday

The zoo is always a family highlight each year!
We love looking at all of the animals and learning *fun* facts about them together!
Mr. Rhino says "hi' to the camera! :)
Thank you to, Lizzy for taking all the pictures!
Lovely peacocks roam the area!

We also got to experience feeding goats! They were SO cute and friendly! Thanks Jodi :)

As I learn of the tragic news around the world daily, I reflect of the sermon I heard yesterday...
do we love the Lord
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord:
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
And these words, which I command thee this day,
shall be in thine heart:
And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9King James Version (KJV)

This scripture passage has been a blessing to me....and it is my prayer that it will be the same to you!

There fore seeing we have this ministry, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor by handling the word of GOD deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every mans conscience in the sight of GOD. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to those who are lost: In whom the gods of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel be Christ, who is the image of GOD, should shine unto them.
For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants foe Jesus' sake. For GOD, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of GOD in the face of Jesus Christ. For we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the excellency of the power may be of GOD... and not of us." 
2 Corinthians 4:1-7 
Blessings to all our dear friends today!

::Sunday Morning::

\\ b e a u t y \\

 "It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
 They are new every morning:
{great is thy faithfulness}.
 The Lord is my portion, saith my soul;
therefore will I hope in him.
The Lord is good unto them that wait for him,
to the soul that seeketh him.
It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord."
Lamentations 3:22-26

Blessings to everyone today...
I hope that y'all have a lovely Sunday!
Love In Christ~
Enjoy = )
