Have You Read This Book?

This is great to read on your own or to your children. Our whole family loves this version as well as the adult version.

Rejoice in the Lord always

Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men.
The Lord is at hand.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication,
with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true,
whatever things are noble, whatever things are just,
whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely,
whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue
and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
The things which you learned and received and heard
and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.
~Philippians 4:4-9~

October Birthday Girl

The name



"Youthful Heart"

For Thou art my hope, O Lord GOD:
Thou art my trust from my youth.
~Psalm 71:5~

O God, Thou hast taught me from my youth:
and hitherto have I declared Thy wondrous works.
~Psalm 71:17~

Let no man despise thy youth;
but be thou an example of the believers,
in word, in conversation, in charity,
in spirit, in faith, in purity.
~I Timothy 4:12~

Note: I am woefully late on posting Jill's birthday post. But better late then never.

Old Pictures

The White Spot

No new pictures yet . . .
Side note: We do not know where this spot on Clark's head came from but it has always been a subject of curiosity for people.

Veteran's Day

In the beginning of a change,
the patriot is a scarce man, and brave,
and hated and scorned.

When his cause succeeds,
the timid join him,
for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.

~Mark Twain~

A Short Story

We cannot get to our newest pictures so here is an old one. Also, it does not have anything to do with the story below.There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, and desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:
For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

Abraham saith unto him, they have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

And he said, nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

And he said unto him, if they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

~Luke 16: 19-31~


Okay, it has been one week.
