Pictures from Iraq...

My brother Benjamin posted these pictures of him in Iraq and I thought I would share them with you.

Ladies' Tea.......

The Ladies of our church went to the Bea-tea-ful Moments Tea Room on Saturday. We had a wonderful time together. I thought I would share some pictures. The first pictures were of the little girls room that can be reserved for birthday parties. The rest are of our beautiful ladies.

Titus 2:4-5.....

My absolute favorite book besides my Bible is Created to be His Helpmeet by Debi Pearl. I have went through and read it numerous times. I pulled out my copy yesterday to find some answers and realized I had really paid attention to the first half of the book (on how to make your marriage glorious) and not paid much attention to the second part of the book. When I started putting what I learned in this book to practice our marriage completely changed! It helps alot that I have the greatest husband! It is amazing when you receive Biblical truth with all your heart and believe it and put it in to practice, how it transforms your life! There are fifty million books on marriage, but are they filled with biblical truth or man's truth?

The second part of the books deals with Titus 2:4-5. She takes every part of those verses and breaks them down word for word. Titus 2:4 "That they may teach the young women to be sober...." What does that mean?????? The definition of sober is to do one's duty, be moderate, self-controlled, thoughtful, and to learn to make wise decisions and judgements." WOW! That means all our planning, scheduling, organizing actually what we are supposed to be doing? I know from experience once that goes, everything falls apart! My focus this week is to work on being sober. I have my list ready to go, and I will make adjustment accordingly! Lucky for my I have two organization masters at my disposal! Rachel Smith and Jennie Bender are just a click away! What can you do to be sober this week? Isaiah 33:6 "And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure."

My flower boxes.........

I planted these flower boxes this weekend. I thought I would post some pictures. My hens and chicks have really taken off! I might have to get a different container!

Rain, Rain, go away.....

It's beginning to feel like Noah's Ark around here. It has rained since Friday, and it is supposed to continue to rain all week. The bright spot is everything is really green!

The busyness of the spring and summer has started. Peter has been preaching at different churchs every weekend. We actually got to attend our home church yesterday. It was so good to be home! We had our first VBS meeting yesterday. Peter and I are the coordinators. Rather than going with a boxed VBS we are making our own. It will be a medieval theme focusing on the armour of God. We are dividing the boys from the girls and teaching about how to be young knights and ladies in waiting. I am so excited!

We are winding down school for the year. My goal is to be done by June 15th. I am starting to put the boys portfolios together. Pray for us as we finished our year.

I had a wonderful quiet time this morning. I read Jeremiah 16 and 17. I wanted to leave this verse to ponder on .....

Jeremiah 17:7-8 "Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, that spreadeth out her roots by the river and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought neither shall cease from yielding fruit."
