Hello dear blogging friends. It's been awhile since I've posted. Here is a picture of our front door and porch. Since we've been making changes on our home and getting rid of the dangerous carpet, I've felt out of whack.
I know things will calm down and become orderly again soon. I'm looking forward to that. Here is Jessica, our daughter by the lamp post again. Victoria our daughter is in the photo below. The kids love taking pictures by the lamp post when it snows. Can you guess why?
It's so they can pretend they are in "Narnia." If you have not read the books, I'd encourage you to do so, they are wonderful and tell the story of Jesus dying for us in the form of a lion named Aslan.
This is how pretty it looked the day the cows got out. I snapped this photo of my husband and children going to their posts. Each of us were assigned a spot to guard to keep the cattle from going the wrong direction. The cows were on the other side of that bridge. we had to get them to come across the bridge and back into our field. It was very cold. I do believe it was 26 degrees that day. We are so thankful we were able to get them all in.
In other news, Frank cut and colored my hair again. I like the shine very much. He does a great job.
I really like the way our daughter Jessica is parting her hair on one side. She looks pretty.
We got to go to our daughter Victoria's Christmas choir concert. On the way we stopped in this circular drive way to look at all the lights. They have a donation box and free candy canes. We love stopping in here on our way to town.
Garrett got a candy cane. We took two cars, that's why it looks empty in here.
Harrison, our son walking Garrett to his seat for the concert.
We brought Jessica's friend Maria on the left, who sat with Jessica and Harrison. Maria spent the night with us. We enjoyed Victoria's concert. I didn't take any photos of her on stage though.
Me, Garrett and my husband Stacey getting ready for the concert to begin.
Victoria wore her pretty black dress and a sweater over it. Garrett was out like a light.
Victoria really likes her choir teacher. She has tons of enthusiasm.
It's tradition, we always go out for ice-cream afterwards, so here we are at Dairy Queen.
In the midst of a busy day teaching, then going to school functions in the evening, I find it so refreshing to stop in at Safeway and get their Chinese food. I just put it on plates to make it look pretty.
I could have lied and told you I made all that Chinese food from scratch and that I am a gourmet cook, but I will tell the truth. I will also tell the truth that sometimes I feel discouraged for no reason at all. I pray through these times and God, in His perfect timing, answers my prayers and brings me through. I thank the Lord and I want to thank you dear blogging friends for being patient with me. I am way over due in my visits to you. "Because Jesus (God the Son) lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood. He is able to save completely those who come to God the Father through Him" (save from permanent separation from God, the Father) "because He always lives to intercede for them." Hebrews 7:24-25 I don't know about you, but I am so thankful Jesus (God the Son) intercedes for us and sends His peace through God the Holy Spirit) .
Thank you Sharon, Michelle and Pearl for your notes to me, they helped me. God is good and I am feeling like myself again. Have a wonderful Sunday to all of you dear blogging friends. Love, Kathi
