Camping

My husband bought me a camper recently so we couldn't wait to try it out. We went to Citico Creek. Had a really great time. And yes, that is me on the rope swing...the boys dared me and I did it. It was so cold!!

Zeks broken wrist (WARNING...THIS PHOTO IS NOT FOR FAINT OF HEART)

We decided at the last minute last night to take the boys to the skate park to let them ride bikes, ride skateboards, and let Gunner push his truck. We weren't there 5 minutes when Zek wiped out. He got up, grabbed his wrist and started toward the van. As soon as I saw it I knew! He didn't even realize it looked like it did till I said Oh, it's broken! He looked at it and freaked out. It was a very long 2 minute ride to the hospital.
I am so thankful for doctors and nurses and medicine.  It was pretty rough there for a while, but I knew folks were praying.  God took care of us.
It will take a while to fully heal, but since it was his right hand, there will be no more schoolwork or piano for a while. He's not very sad about that haha

How Great Thou Art

As I was sitting in Sunday School yesterday morning, my heart was breaking. There are so many needs, so many hurting hearts, so many heavy burdens. It can get very discouraging listening to all the heavy hearts. But I know God is able to do it all.
Then Olivia got up to play the offertory..."How Great Thou Art" and I was so encouraged in the Lord. God truly is great! God is still on the throne. God is still in control.
Yes, there is wickedness everywhere. Yes, there are wayward children away from God. Yes, there are deaths in our families. Yes, there are heavy burdens that no one knows about but us.
But God is great! He is the same God that parted the waters. He is the same God that made the fleece dry and the ground wet. He is the same God that fed all those thousands of people with only 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread. He has healed people from all manner of diseases, made the blind to see, the lame to walk, transformed the lives of the most vilest of sinners.
He is still the same God. And what's more...He cares about us, He loves us, He wants to do great things for us and our families...because He is great.
Let us keep on walking with Him, talking with Him, trusting in Him...
May we always be reminded "How Great Thou Art"

Christmas at our house

Even though a nasty stomach virus raged it's way through our family this Christmas, it was still a wonderful day. Not because of all the gifts, presents, lights, decorations...but because I have my family with me, safe and sound. We woke up to a roof over our heads, clothes on our backs, and plenty to eat. Wow! Has God been good to us! All the time!
Merry Christmas from the Crass family!!
Zek and I were the first ones up...waiting on everyone else ;)


He's ready!
