Children's Bible

The Future

I opened the book and my eyes fell on these words.

Psalm 34:4-8

I sought the Lord and He heard me,
And delivered me from all my fears
They looked to Him and were radiant
And their faces were not ashamed

One day, at the end of our path through this world, we will stand on the edge of a new world. My dream is that we will stand together as a family, free of fear, our hearts welling up in anticipation for our future with our loving Father.

As you can see, I finally got a picture of us. And there is more!

First, here is mom and dad.

The flash on my camera is failing and I had lighten some of these photos.

Corey helped me get the tree this year. Diamond came too.

He carefully trimmed the bottom to his liking. (your eyes are okay...the picture is blurry.)

I'm so glad they were in a picture taking mood.

We had a nice Christmas. We had 10 family members for a mid-day meal of Ham, scallop potatoes, and more. Diamond's dog cousins Maggie and Samuel were here along with my sis-in-law and bro-in-law. Cousin Larry and 98-year old Aunt Elsie graced the table. My nieces in Colorado are flying out for a visit later this week!

The Psalm continues...

The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him.
And delivers them.
Oh taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!

I've been preparing for a Christmas "History" presentation at work...including the story of Jesus, of course. And...baking cookies, Christmas shopping, cooking...

gotta go...

I'll be back!

Our Thanksgiving

Just thought I'd show you a few Thanksgiving photos. My mother, Mary, and Great-Aunt Elsie are having some girl-talk in the kitchen. Aunt-Elsie is 98. She brought a wonderful cranberry salad.
We enjoyed the sun on our shoulders. I wonder what C. is talking about with Aunt Mary? Diamond is having fun with her dog cousins Maggie and Samuel (Samuel is exploring our yard--not pictured here.)

Dog-guests Maggie and Samuel politely sit in their crates while we eat...and while Great Aunt Elsie is nearby.
My 22 pound turkey. It came out good! (a miracle)
Mozart is having a conversation with the dogs. Left to right...Maggie, Samuel, and Diamond. I think one of the dog's licked my camera lens. Please excuse the smudge. Do you notice the iron gate in the background? That's the new fence we built so Diamond can safely stay in the back yard. (She sure is inside alot!)

I haven't had a mother-son picture in about 6 years. And this is what I got. Oh's not very good. It had to be snapped fast before they ran away...or C. dropped the dog.
My youngest son's antics always lighten the mood. We watched him chase the dogs with a bag on his head.

I haven't been posting much and one of the reasons is my helpful husband updated my computer system and now I can't get to my pictures very easily. (What's a post without a picture?). I'll be by your blogs soon! Have a good day!
