Father - Son Trip to the Holy Land in Israel

Thursday, November 5, 2015

A couple of weeks ago my husband and oldest son arrived home from Israel.  They went with a group of about 25, led by our pastor and his wife.  This was an incredible adventure!  Not only were they traveling across. the. world. but they were going to walk the ground that Jesus walked. 

As a Christ follower this trip holds so much meaning.  Beyond historical, beyond factual.  It brings the Bible, the living Word, even more alive!  Here are a few, out of hundreds, pictures. 

This is the top of the Southern Wall of the Temple Mount.

Praying in the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus wept.  This was my sons very favorite.  He said it was so very peaceful, quiet, he could feel the Lord's presence.

Hanging out in an Olive tree.

A view of the Sea of Galilee from the top of Mount Arbel, 1300 feet above the Sea.

Thus is the picture they sent, knowing I dread edges and heights!!  Boys.

This waterfall fed into the Sea of Galilee.

Pondering the Sea of Galilee in Capernaum

Standing in an arch of the Aqueduct in Ceasarea.

This picture is of my son being baptized by our pastor and my husband.  The way the water is so still in some parts, and powerfully splashing with the body being submerged moves my heart every time I look at it.  There is complete surrender, powerful grace and forgiveness, and pure joy!

blog facelift and new business

Saturday, October 31, 2015

Happy fall afternoon!!  Yes, yes I know its Halloween but honestly for years around here that's neither here nor there.

I'm just thrilled that today is SATURDAY!  My husband is home, all the burnt out light bulbs in the house have been changed, and right now he and Hank are at the grocery store picking up some ingredients for Salmon Chowder Soup.  I've not made it before but of course chose this soup to bring in a crockpot to our friend's house tonight.

Please tell me you make 'first-time-ever' recipes to share too.  I totally have trusty stand by recipes but it must be the thrill of sharing something new.  I don't know.

The blog is getting a face lift!  Yay!  I purchased a template from etsy and paid the extra $10 to have it installed.

So soon.  Very soon, you will see some spectacular changes!

Also, here is a sneak peek of what has been unfolding over here.  My entrepreneurial brain seems to NEVER shut off.  So, we decided its high time to organize my sporadic ideas and formalize my continuous brain dumps into something tangible and sellable!  I can not WAIT to share more.

Again, soon.  Like next week soon!!!

Happy Reformation Day and go jump in some leaves! 

October 2015.

I love October.  I really do.  This picture of Jerry (yes, that's his nickname...) was snapped on the way to church this past Sunday.  Total sleepiness, morning sun, long sleeves and cozy.  Michigan lends itself to foggy mornings, beautiful fall colors on the trees, crisp cool air and I'm just gonna say it.  Donuts and Cider.

We made our way to our local pumpkin patch this year and our rule is:  if you can lift the pumpkin up and get it in the wagon, we can get it.  Our kids are older and stronger and I must say our pumpkin collection by the front door dons a couple very large pumpkins! And a few tiny ones.

I have to add this picture of Jerry Bear.  He's been sucking his bottom lip and jamming his fists into his mouth (a-la teething).  He often waits right here in the middle of our bed, happy as a clam.  I mean look at his hair?  How could he not feel awesome?

We are enjoying a fall break right now from Classical Conversations and have a couple of fun activities planned.  I so love the freedom homeschooling has given us as a family!  Happy October!
