Fall Festival

We hosted a Cowboy Roping booth at our Church's Fall Festival this year. It was great fun to show people how to rope sawhorses. We would upload some pictures, but it seems the camera was stolen or lost while we were there. . .
So, if we find the camera we can upload all the lovely pictures that show what a fun time we had.

Hopefully we can find it soon or whoever stole it will feel guilty and put it in the lost and found.

We'll see soon.

Current Happenings

Pictures always say more than words . . .

our street in the Fall-time
(Question by one of the bloggers to the blogger of this post: Just how does this picture say much?)

Now that we have a camera we will be taking pictures again.

We are still here.

We just do not have a camera or internet right now.

We will be back soon.

31+ Years

Dear Dad and Mom,

Thank you for staying married for 31+ years.

We know you guys intend to stay married for another 31+ years.

In our humble opinion, you guys are the best looking, "married" couple in town.
And, just think . . . Because two people fell in love, look at what God did . . .

1. He gave you eight children who love you and like to be with you guys.
Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
Psalm 127:3-5

2. A daughter-in-law, who is just like one of the girls.
A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.
God setteth the
solitary in families: He bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.
Psalm 68:5-6

3. And last, but not least, two beautiful grandchildren, who are healthy and strong.
Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.
Proverbs 17:6

There are many more blessings than these, but, they are too numerous to mention . . . Oh, also . . .

4. You have found that God does not cease in His blessings but is continually merciful, faithful, and just (gracious).
Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.
Psalm 116:5
God is faithful, by whom you were called to the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
I Corinthians 1:9

Love, (Much Love),
Cacey, Jenny, Christy, Joy, Clark and Jill

We will post some pictures later (sometime:).

The Right Hand From The Left Hand

For . . .

Thou art a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness . . .

For Thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: Thou art my trust from my youth.

By Thee have I been holden up from the womb: Thou art He that took me out of my mother's bowels: my praise shall be continually of Thee.

I am as a wonder unto many; but Thou art my strong refuge.

(God condemn the great city of Nineveh to be burned because of their evil and sent his prophet Jonah to warn them. The people of the city turned away from their evil ways and and God repented the judgment He had condemned on them and did not fulfill it. Jonah, who did not know the people of Nineveh, was angry that God decided not to destroy the great city. So, Jonah went outside the city walls, sat down, and waited to see what God would do).

And the LORD God prepared a gourd, and made it to come up over Jonah, that it might be a shadow over his head, to deliver him from his grief. So Jonah was exceeding glad of the gourd.
But God prepared a worm when the morning rose the next day, and it smote the gourd that it withered.

And it came to pass, when the sun did arise, that God prepared a vehement east wind; and the sun beat upon the head of Jonah, that he fainted, and wished in himself to die, and said, It is better for me to die than to live.

And God said to Jonah, Doest thou well to be angry for the gourd? And he said, I do well to be angry, even unto death.

Then said the LORD, Thou hast had pity on the gourd, for the which thou hast not labored, neither madest it grow; which came up in a night, and perished in a night: and should not I spare Nin'eveh, that great city, wherein are more than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle?
(God is talking of children here).

Christ said . . .

Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

Psalms 71:5-7 /The Book of Jonah/ Luke 18:15-17
