your deep love for your children

your eyes

your multi talents

your hands

Our vans are so white, we are an amazing sight

you are just so dang cool, that all i do is drool

you're the best carpet layer in the world

the people that hire you don't realize you're a pearl

Summer Love...

Summer reminds me of fresh cut flowers from the yard, homemade Popsicles, the smell of a freshly mowed lawn, banana bread, afternoon thunderstorms, front porch sitting and backyard swimming pools.

Loving life right now and it's fun. Embracing the life, family, children, husband, house and weather God has given me.

I know I will miss the day when little fingers have rearranged my silverware drawer.

Awww... the joy of homemade grape juice popsicles!


These cupcakes are so yummy and Lucy can have them. I think these will be on the menu for her birthday. I think you could make a banana bread with the recipe too. I'll be trying that sometime soon.

I made a different frosting that very good. Here is a rough estimate of the amounts and ingrediants.

1/2 cup yogurt cheese
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 drops of liquid stevia
1 tsp of honey

You just have to taste it and sweeten to your liking.

God will take care of you

The words from this old hymn blessed me today. I hope they do the same for you.

Be not dismayed whate'er betide,
God will take care of you;
beneath his wings of love abide,
God will take care of you.

God will take care of you,
through every day, o'er all the way;
he will take care of you,
God will take care of you.

Through days of toil when heart doth fail,
God will take care of you;
when dangers fierce your path assail,
God will take care of you.

All you may need he will provide,
God will take care of you;
nothing you ask will be denied,
God will take care of you.

No matter what may be the test,
God will take care of you;
lean, weary one, upon his breast,
God will take care of you.

For today May 18, 2009

Outside my window is the last of our lilacs and a squirrel trying to climb a crab apple branch.

I am thinking what a great weekend we had and I can't believe Abby is still sleeping this morning.

I am thankful for my husband who takes such good care of his family.

From the kitchen I'm hoping to get some sauerkraut made today. There will be a chicken roasting in the oven later for dinner tonight.

I am wearing my pjs still! I don't want to go into our room and wake Abby up.

I am creating a peaceful, organized, Christ centered home for my family.

I am going grocery shopping later today. Probably stop at Vitamin Cottage and maybe Sunflower market.

I am reading Created to be his Helpmeet, The Creative Family and James.

I am hoping we can sell all the furniture we bought this weekend for a good price!

I am hearing Abby who is now awake makeing happy sounds and Lucy looking through the pages of one of her books.

Around the house everything is out of order. Out with the old in with the new. I'm hoping everything will be organized by the end of the week. I need to paint and distress a new shelf for Lucy's room Todd bought for a $1 at a garage sale. I need to catch up on the girls laundry. I want to put up a picture wall in our bedroom. I need to water our garden and the flowers I potted last week.

One of my favorite things is spending a peaceful morning with the girls after a busy weekend.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

This was the cutie sitting beside me while I wrote this.
