Look at the birds of the air!

little mama
tending to babies
even when it's a bit messy

They neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns
yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
So don't worry about your life.
Are you not of more value than they?
Matthew 6


Leyla is loving her birthday baking book.

But like all aspiring bakers, she sometimes gets frustrated.

And disappointed.

And exasperated.

Especially, when she adds 1 1/2 cups of vanilla instead 1 1/2 teaspoons.

Poor girl. I know the feeling.

But with some of failure

and lots of practice

comes sweet chocolate-chip-muffin



Mother's Day

All I wanted was
  • to be together
  • go on a picnic
  • go on a hike
I got so much more.

I have so much more. It would be vain to say any of this life is my doing, the mother.
For it's all the Lord's doing. The two mothers who have begot and blessed us. A husband who loves and serves. Happy sprouting children. I feel much gratitude in knowing that this position and home is a gracious gift He is growing. May we always fear Him.

Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it~Psalm 127


Happy Mothers Day, Babe!

Spring Sights

A new tree house lovingly built by father and grandfather. Decorated with mud. Swing attached.
The first farmer's market of the season. Flowers and foliage. Three ducks making their home in & around our yard. And on top of our car. Out with the old, in with the new kitchen floor. A 7 year old freckled birthday girl got one big party along with her friend. Baby Uriah renamed "Bubble" by Cade. Because he's that fat. A new bird house hoping for lots of visitors. Yep, spring is here.
