My Little Graduate!

What a fun morning today as we all went to Emma's Kindergarten graduation!
We thought everyone was so cute all dressed up and singing their little hearts out for their families! The slide show was a good laugh as well as they presented the kiddies doing work and on their field trips. You could hear all the kids cheering for their classmates as they popped up on the slide show!
I'm so Proud of My Little Emma.....She is getting so grown up. She made Jon an I sit together and wait while She went to get her own juice and cake! :)
Next year All Day at school.....I think I may just cry!
Here's to Emma and all the little Graduates,
Way to Go!

Family Time

Sometimes life flies by so fast. I treasure the times as a family....It really doesn't have to be a big or expensive outing....Sometimes the simplest times are the best memories!
We just took a fall walk in Corbyville last fall and all of us have such fond memories of that special family time together. I'm glad we took the camera to help us keep the memory!
I Love My Family......They are What I am So Grateful for.......We must take more walks!
Now the Dog can come too! :)

Being Pulled Out Of The Mire!

I have been exploring so Many Wonderful Womens Encouraging Blogs Lately and in My Journey have been so Boosted up in Faith and in Truth to be able to Raise My Hand up to Jesus in Confidence that He Will bring me up out of the Mire and Place my Feet on Solid Ground!

I wanted to Add this Snippet that I took from Beth Moore as She has been a Large Part in My Journey back to Freedom!
Be Strong Beloved Daughters Of God....You are All His Princesses and that Never Changes!

below from Beth Moore:

Beloved, In the name of Jesus
I commission you
to rejoice in the Lord always
And again I say rejoice.
Stop worrying about everything!
Dump your anxiety
And start praying like mad.
Start thinking about
What You are Thinking about!
Start feeding Your Spirit
And Stop feeding your flesh.
Never forget the true Secret:
Christ in You, the Hope of GLORY!
You, Dear One, have the Supernatural CAN DO!
Now, believe God
And Turn your CAN DO
You are NOT a Wimp.
You are a Warrior.
In the Name of Christ
Go out there and act like one.

I really needed this today!

Garden of inspiration

Puppy Days

Below in our back room

Our New Puppy Rollie
We have been learning about Puppy training and finding ourselves wracking our brains for new ways to keep things running smoothly in Doggyville. She May be cute but don't let that fool You!
She'll grab a whole cheeseburger from a 5 yr old and run off with it....Good luck trying to catch her!
Ha! She has chewed many toys and other things.....that have left us Gob Smacked as to how she could get to were they were kept. Emma thinks she has secret Spiderman Powers and can climb walls! She can jump over the Baby gates we bought to pen her in. I guess thats Why they call her a Springer Spaniel!
I do However Love her cuddly ways! She follows us around and lays on our feet! This will come in especially handy on cold nights! Or next Winter!
Here's a Post to Rollie Pollie Mills! A great new Addition to our family!

Toy Tree

We have a new puppy and the girls have been playing outside a lot with her and many of her toys have been taken outside due to this lovely weather we've been having.
I was amazed at how messy our back yard was getting! I asked the girls to go out and tidy up the toys etc..
When I went back to check , What I once thought was a Lovely Apple tree had become a tree of toys.
If It were only true! We'd be going to the Toy forest instead of the Toy store...
Who knows with All the great Gardeners out there....You'd Likely grow Your Own toy trees as You all are such green thumbs!
Jen I noticed that You have a Lemon Skippit in Your tree....
This Toy tree Theory may not be as Crazy as it Sounds! :)

What a view!

Can You see the view from the former post...through the window?

Notice a row of tall trees? That is were the rainbow came down!

Cheryl You have a fabulous view of Gods Amazing creation were You Live!

No wonder it is inspiring there!

Hope the sun is shining there....and You see more rainbows!

Picture worth 1000 words!

It has been a while since I've posted
to this blog.
It is sometimes hard to come up with what words to say , especially when You don't know how to describe what You are going through.

I Love that pictures can say so much!

Teena I love that You've joined the blog. You are so talented and I Love the photos You take....they really do say "Beauty"!

This Photo is a comforting one to me at this time were I need reminding of Gods Promises!

There is an Awe I feel when seeing rainbows! It brings me back to were I need to focus. It helps me lay down heavy burdens and pick up the Hope of the bright future. The future God Has in store for those he Loves!

I remember back in England when Jon was preaching one night. There was something that he quoted that has stuck with me. It went something like; "To Look within is to be depressed, to look around is to be distressed, But to look up (to God ) is to be Blessed!"

It has been a reminder to me to shift my focus when I am feeling down. There truely is a battle field that goes on in the mind!....But Praise God for He has made a way for us to walk into Freedom and Joy!

This Scripture encouraged me today:

Isaiah 43: 18,19
"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not percieve it?
I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland."

The fact is I have allowed myself to focus on the wrong things and therefore do not "percieve" the new things God wants to do. I am asking for Gods New Revalation of His Promises for today and the future....Now I feel Hope rising up!!!!

This Picture is a reminder of Renewed Hope in Gods Promises!

Anyone recognise its location?
