Meditating

DWELL

HE WHO ABIDES IN THE SECRET PLACE

FILLED WITH HOPE

FAITHFUL IN PRAYER

LORD, LET IT BE UNTO ME AS YOU HAVE SAID

WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE

EVERYTHING FOR OUR GOOD

IF YOU BEING EVIL KNOW HOW TO GIVE GOOD GIFTS TO YOUR CHILDREN HOW MUCH MORE YOUR FATHER IN HEAVEN

TRUST WITH ALL YOUR HEART - LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING

All of these are swimming in my heart and head; looking for a place to land.

Wearing Real Shoes - Finally!

March 17th was K's surgery. Last week he put on real shoes the first time. Thank the Lord for simple things that mean so much!

The Waco Zoo








I was able to visit the Waco zoo twice in one week! One time as a teacher and the other as a parent. We were blessed with overcast weather. They have this neat scavenger hunt for studetns to do. We learned much! Did you know an elephant is pregnant for 23 months? So glad God chose 9 for us!

Sweet Moment

We've been running everywhere lately and never home. What fun to see my girls close together for a moment. sweet treasure.

Please Pray

Tonight as I scanned the news on the internet I found that Steven Curtis Chapman's youngest daughter was tragically killed by one of her brothers as he entered their driveway. K and I stopped to pray for the grief of this family. According to the news several family members witnessed the accident. Please take time today to pray for this precious family.

Steak Cook Off

Girls everywhere!
K and our friend on trash patrol!
Should we get these boots for next year?
Our adopted family here - one of the sisters!

My sweet friend who I teach with and attend church with and our husbands are great friends!
Ronica Couldrion was one of the singers. We knew her in Sweetwater and hadn't seen in her in several years. What fun!
She said that K and I had been a blessing to her and introduced us that way. What an encouragement to receive. Thank you God for unexpected encouragement! She used to keep Spencer.


Our friend looks great in a purse!
Love the sign!
There were 2 older ladies walking around with these on today. They were matching with their blue jean mini skirts and red boots. HMMM - Maybe my friend and i need to do that next year. The reason for the earlier pic of the boots.

WE had an amazing time today at our town sponsored State Cook Off. Food Network was there!

Prince Caspian




We went to a larger town last night to watch the movie Prince Caspian. (We needed stadium seating and surround speakers for this movie.) We loved it. The girls and I have the audio read aloud cd's of all the books. It was fun to see how close they stayed to the original. My hubby's favorite line was when Aslan told Lucy " You could have come alone." in response to why she didn't come when she saw him. I wonder how many times Christ has said this to us. Oh to have complete trust in Him to go alone!

What do your Shoes say about you?












We had the cutest Gama Gama Meeting this week. Shoes was the theme. We had piggies, shoe horns (bugles), bunyons (funyons), and cup cake cones in shape of a flip flop. Our sweet godsister did the cutest devotion on shoes. The girls then made flip flops. H said that our feet point the direction we walk. There were some really cute verse analysis that went with the shoes.

Wait til next week!

The music teacher came in and asked me to make sure and bring my camera tomorrow for the talent show. One of the students is hypnotizing a chicken on stage. She just knew my city friends would enjoy this on my blog. Bet you can't wait!

In the mean time I am recovering from strep throat. I had 2 large shots that are seeming to do the trick. One made me limp out of the dr.'s office. The nurse asked me not to do that because it made her look bad. smile.

K survived the absess/infection in his foot and another antibiotic he is intolerant of - the list is growing. The foot dr. froze his foot hoping that the open wound will close soon. Aren't we a pair. God has been so real and speaking to me. Will share more of that with you later. We are on a new layer of me. Glad I am an onion and have lots of layers.

I get to go to my mommy's for loving and watch a baby that is learning to crawl this weekend. On the way I get to stop at Chick fil A - Wahooo! The best would be if my sweet hubby could come along with us. Maybe next time.

Ag Field Trip

Being from the city I am continuously surprised at some of the things we do. One is the annual Ag trip that the 4th-5th graders take every year. We found out how to vaccinate cows and give them pills. I also found out you can measure the ankle of a cow and know its weight without using a scale. We learned about people who are harvesting hamsters for all the national retailers. They can have babies every 18 days! They are majorly regulated by the govt. We had the chance to pet several species of goats and a calf. We found out about bee keeping. The students were also given worms to take home to start a compost. This literally weirded out of my teaching buddies. Think of 48 styrofoam cups of worms on the bus ride home. smile. We found out about cows. Did you know they make beef jerky out of dairy cows? We learned about grain etc. The ethanol corn fuel they are making is from different corn than the corn we eat. We saw dead fish on ice and found out about cotton gins.
