Someone asked me about Maria- Our princess- I forgot to mention her in my last blog so here she is. She is growing like a weed into a beautiful young lady. She is Noah's little mother. He loves her so much!!

She seems to get distracted with Honor is around. She does so much better when she is not. She has been very helpful with dinner lately. (praise the Lord) since we have had a soccer camp for Joey. Next week is her soccer camp- which she is excited about. She gets to see her teammates.(it is an all girls team and they play other girls)

That is about it- she stays busy telling all the boys what to do and helping me out. (ha-ha)

God bless

He is 7 months!

Can you believe he is now 7 months old. Here he is now-eating his breakfast and watching his favorite video called signing time. It is a sign language video that we have been watching with him for about two months, to teach him and ourselves sign language. He loves when we sign to him. He just smiles real big and laughs. He is starting to say Ma Ma, and Da Da Da.
He gets up on his knees and acts like he is going to take that step of crawling and belly flops forward to get whatever he is reaching for. The kids adore him, he is well loved that is for sure.
I have been trying to ween him from my bed to a crib that process has been a slow one. I guess I have learned my lesson, if the Lord should permit me to have another, it will never start in my bed. ;-)
Our summer has officially started. We were hoping to be in a house closer to our church by now but the Lord has not led us in that directions. I guess for now that is not his will for us. So we are still here in Nixa. We did not plant a garden because we were hoping to be gone by now. Now I am unsure what to do. I truly want a garden but we are looking at the middle of June already-wow time flies.
Sam is working hard and Paul is working side by side with him. Last week was a rough week of long hours. Hopefully this week will not be as many hours.
Alexander is doing well. He is slowly working through school.
Samuel J- has grown a foot! and still as quiet and easy going as ever. While Joey does not look like he has grown at all! and can be a meanie!
As for myself- I am sleepy, trying to make it through each day with the Lord. Right now I am doing a bible Study called the King's Daughter- by Diane Hagee- great stuff. I will write more on that later.
Need to go get some kids focused.
God's blessing to all.

A full week

This week has been full week. We had the Advance Life Seminar- it was very interesting. I really felt like we were under major attack though. Not one day last week did we get there on time. Samuel, Paul, and Samuel Jacob left for the weekend to Jefferson City, which has left me to man the fort. It is hard to get everything done when you are alone and make it to the seminar on time. But we have survived, it is over, it is done. Now it is time for a life of no activities, no soccer, no appointments. It makes me happy to know that we will have at week to do nothing!

I do hope all you are doing fine.. I sure would love to see hear from you!

A letter from God to Women-

This is a letter from the Book called the King's Daughter written by Diane Hagee
It is incredible! I pray all of you women enjoy it, and get blessed by it as much as I am!!
" When I created the heavens and the earth, I spoke them into being. When I created man, I formed him and breathed life into his nostrils. But you, woman, I fashioned after I breathed the breath of life into man because your nostrils were to delicate. I allowed a deep sleep to come over him so I could patiently and perfectly fashion you.
Man was put to sleep so that he could not interfere with the creativity. From one bone I fashioned you. I chose the bone that protects man's life. I chose the rib, which protects his heart and lungs and supports him, as you are meant to do.
Around this one bone I shaped you. I modeled you. I created you perfectly and beautifully. Your characteristics are as the rib-strong, yet delicate and fragile. You provide protection for the most delicate organ in man: his heart. His heart is the center of his being; his lungs hold the breath of life.
The rib cage will allow itself to be broken before it will allow damage to the heart. Support man as the rib cage supports the body. You were not take from his feet, to be under him, nor were you taken from his head, to be above him. You were taken fro his side, to stand beside him and be held close to his side.
You are MY perfect angel. You are MY beautiful little girl. You have grown to be a splendid woman of excellence, and My eyes fill when I see the virtue in your heart. Your eyes- don't change them. Your lips- how lovely when they part in prayer. Your nose, so perfect in form. Your hands, so gentle to touch. I've caressed your face in your deepest sleep; I've held your heart close to Mine.
Of all that lives and breathes, you are the most like Me. Adam walked with Me in the cool of the day, and yet he was lonely. He could not see Me or touch me. He could only feel Me. So everything I wanted Adam to share and experience with Me, I fashioned in you: My holiness, My strength, My purity, My love, My protection and support. You are special because you are an extension of Me. Man represents My image. Woman, My emotions. Together you represent the totality of God.
So, Man, treat Woman well. Love her, respect her, for she is fragile. In hurting her, you hurt Me. What you do to her, you do to Me. In crushing her, you damage your own heart, the heart of your Father and the heart of her Father.
Woman, support Man. In humility, show your strength. In love, show him that you are the rib that protects his inner self. "
