God’s Faithfulness

“But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting
to everlasting upon them that fear him,

and his righteousness unto children’s children;”

“To such as keep his covenant,
and to those that remember his commandments to do them.”
Psalms 103:17-18 

“Bless the LORD, all his works 
in all places of his dominion:
bless the LORD, O my soul.”
Psalms 103:22 

Happy Veteran’s Day

… a day late. “Thank you” seems inadequate to express our gratefulness to those who served our country. Some gave their lives for our freedom. May we never forget that. Others made huge sacrifices. May we never forget that. Ultimately, may we never take for granted the sacrifice our Lord and Savior made for us. May we never forget that.

Thank you, Veterans, for your service to us and our country.


“Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth
with all your heart: for consider how great
things he hath done for you.” (1 Samuel 12:24)

We’ll wait for another post to show the real pictures. These are the “behind the scenes” mainly taken from my old camera, except for one.


Okay, so John was hamming it up here.
Jim, the stuffed cow, came along to help the little girls laugh.


“But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God:
I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it:
and I will wait on thy name; for it is good before thy saints.”
Psalms 52:8-9 

The Brunch Report

This year’s Neighborhood Ladies’ Brunch was a delight! We always enjoy fellowshipping with our wonderful neighbors, and this was no exception. We were grateful to the ladies who took the time to come to the brunch! Many of them also brought food for which we were very thankful too!

Here is our menu:

  • Potato and Ham Breakfast Casserole (recipe coming later)
  • Cinnamon Rolls
  • Coffee Cake
  • Fruit Salad
  • Veggies
  • Gooey Pumpkin Chocolate Muffins
  • Almond Shortbread
  • Peanut Butter Surprise Brownies


Mom was a wonderful hostess, and she came up with this years’ round-table discussion. She asked everyone to share a highlight of the past year, and if they wanted to, they could tell about their saddest time.

We were blessed as we heard about each of our friends’ triumphs and some hardships. There was much laughing, and there were also a few tears shed as the ladies shared. It was a neat time, and Dad said he could tell from all the laughter he heard from his office upstairs that we were surely enjoying each other’s company!

After the brunch, it was time to hurry. Like Sarah already mentioned, we will wait for another post to tell you what we were hurrying to do!

Serving Jesus,

Sarah and I made this decoration about 10 years ago.

Anna Marie took this one so Sarah could be in it.

A Brunch Preview

We had an awesome time with our sweet neighbors, including our relatives :-). We did something else this afternoon as a family, so watch for a post tomorrow about that.


“Bless the LORD, O my soul:
and all that is within me, bless his holy name.”
Psalms 103:1 

Of Skirts and Shopping

Hi y’all,

Yesterday was a gorgeous, autumn day here in Kansas. We girls went to Kansas City for a little shopping trip. Our skirts are finished, so you can see a picture of them below.

We’re looking forward to the ladies’ neighborhood brunch tomorrow. While we were out, we picked up some paper goods for the autumn theme.

May we each delight in the Lord’s goodness. “Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!” (Psalms 107:8)


The finished “products.” BTW – Anna’s purse was a birthday present.
Lunch out together.

Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee;
which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!”
Psalms 31:19
