A lot of catching up to do!!

Wow, has it really been 8 months since I blogged! No excuses! Just busy living my life. No time to sit in front of a computer...unless I'm couponing :) Anyway, wanted to share a few things that's been going on here lately. Daniel was baptized in June. He got saved 3 years ago. But was just now ready to take that next step and be baptized. So thankful for Daniel. He's my brave...try anything...not afraid of anything boy!! Love him so much. Can't wait to see what God has planned for his life. 


Then he has begun football playing. Yikes! My first football player. He's been begging to play for weeks so we signed him up and he started last week. It's so hot!! But he doesn't care. We are so thankful for a good Christian coach that puts God and family first. Because he will be missing practices when we have revival and youth meetings and such and he totally understands. There's even a couple homeschoolers on the team. So that's cool. Go Daniel!!

Then on June 23rd, Braden turned 16!! He got his license and is driving! Double yikes! Haha Wow! Seriously, where does time go? And on July 6th, Ryder turned 17! They're both driving...both have trucks. Ryder is working constantly. Lord willing, will graduate this year. Braden is a junior. And is looking for a job. My life is very busy. Daniel is going into the 6th grade...Zek 3rd...Colt 1st...and Gunner is just into everything... But hey he potty trained faster than any of my kids. I told my mom it's about time I caught a break lol. I sure do love my family and am so thankful.

Zek

Last week was Thanksgiving and like so many others,  I have so much for which to be thankful. But I wanted to share the greatest news of our family that happened yesterday. . .Zek asked Jesus to save him. He has been asking a lot questions the last several weeks and specifically asked about Heaven and Hell last weekend. So he was ready. He was really listening to the message in church and when invitation time came he wanted to go forward and ask Jesus to save him. I am so thankful for God's faithfulness to my family.

Revival

Our church just had a week long meeting with Bro. Andy Wells. He is a great man of God and a phenomenal preacher. He is so filled with wisdom and knowledge. I'm still feasting on the messages we heard this week.  He dealt with different subjects...things you wouldn't normally call "revival" messages.  But actually if these truths would take root in our hearts they would truly bring revival to our homes, our communities, our churches and our country. He dealt with the real true history of America...the one you don't read in the texts books in America's public schools. He dealt with having charity, being hospitable. . .among other things.  Last night he gave a great sermon on the one sin that you may be passing down to your children and grandchildren causing future generations to consistently struggle in that area. The devil will continue to use that sin if it works to make us fall. We need to "break that chain" as Joseph did in Genesis 39 when he refused to sin in the manner of his forefathers. I'm just so thankful to the Lord for these truths and am praying that He will work them in my heart, my family's heart, the church's heart and let us have revival.

Happy Birthday Colt

Well this little boy is finally 6 years old. I just can't believe it. He has talked about nothing else for the past two months. All he wanted was a new blue bike. He got his wish! Colt is my helper. Willing to drop whatever he's doing and lend a hand. Volunteering for anything that needs doing. He has such a tender heart. So precious. Full of life. Happy Birthday Colt

My brother

August was such a busy month! But I wanted to take a minute to post about my brother. The 14th was his birthday and I forgot to post. I didn't forget his birthday...just forgot to post it here.  Jonathan is very special. He's such a good brother.  Always there if and when I need him. A good role model for my boys. He loves chicken and dumplins and so every year I make them for him. I think I look forward to making them as much as he does eating them. But this year he said something very sweet. He said he was anxious to share them with Kyeli and Dane.  I'm sure all of you know by now that Jonathan and Becky have adopted them permanently and forever. And it just melted my heart to hear him say that. I have prayed for years for him to have children and have rejoiced to see what God has done in his life. I watch him being a daddy and I just love it. I love my family so much. So happy late birthday Jonathan!!

Dane turns 2!!

I can't believe this precious little boy is 2 years old. He is one of the happiest most contented babies I know. His little smile will absolutely melt your heart. He loves Toy Story so that was the theme for the day. Becky always does a great job decorating, coming up with games, and just making it so much fun. We sure love this little feller and look forward to many more birthdays :)
