I confess, I have no excuse! My little baby girl, Lily, has more clothes given to her than she could possibly wear in a month, but I just had to buy her a new outfit.
I was buying baby clothes for two different ladies who were having boys, when I let my eyes wander to the baby girl racks. Oh, I usually don't even let myself go there. My eyes caught this adorable long-sleeved, layered flower top with these tiny corduroy (sp?) brown pants with a little pink button on the bottom. If you know me, I LOVE color combinations. It is kind of a sickness of mine. I am the child who used to eat all the lucky charms out of my bowl, but save two different colors to see how they would look together. Every morning, would be a different combination. I know, I'm weird! I think that is why I like to scrapbook and make cards. I get to play with COLORS!!! LOL! Anyway....I saw these colors and saw that it was on sale, so I had a weak moment.
Isn't she cute? She is sitting up and starting to crawl now and is delighting all of us with her antics. Oh, I forgot how much fun they are at this stage. It truly is one of my favorite stages of babyhood. They are so tiny still, but they are getting a little personality.
On the home front, Steve was hunting with two older ones yesterday and it started snowing! Come again? Yeah, I said SNOW! I couldn't believe it. They came home shivering without a deer. He has seen only does so far, no bucks. I'm kind of glad, because if he did get a deer, I don't know where we would put it. Our freezer is stuffed with half a beef and a whole pig! Praise the Lord!
I'm looking forward to getting back in the routine of homeschooling. The boys have been hunting with their father lately, so it's been on and off. It's been nice having a break, but now I'm ready to buckle down again. Tonight, I am planning on giving them a culture lesson. We are going to go see the African Children's Choir! I saw them a few years back and was overwhelmed with love and joy for these orphans. I am going to take Josh, Marcus, Jessica and Andrew. I think they will all love it!
"Show me your way , oh Lord, teach me Your paths; guide me in Your truth and teach me for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in You all day long." -Psalm 25:4-5 My Mission for this BLOG is to bring glory to God as I share what He is teaching me as I raise my children for Him. I want to encourage mothers all around the world to hang in there! Motherhood is tough, challenging and gritty. But through Christ's strength and the support of other moms who are in the trenches, I will keep pressing towards the goal to raise Godly children. Please feel free to leave comments. It blesses me so much! You can also email me at email@example.com
I am a Stay-At-Home mother of six children. We LOVE having a large family. My first love, is Christ and the Words of the Bible. My passion is to teach my children about the Lord. I love to watch my children discover their own faith in God. My husband has been a firefighter for over 20 years and is now an officer. I am very proud of him. I long to be a Titus 2 woman who encourages other women to love their husbands and children and to thrive in their homes, not just survive.
The noblest calling in the world is that of a mother. True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions. She who can paint a masterpiece or who can write a book that will influence millions deserves the plaudits and admiration of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters whose immortal souls will be exerting an influence throughout the ages long after paintings shall have faded, and books and statues shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give. -David O. McKay Motherhood is the one thing in all the world which most truly exemplifies the God-given virtues of creating and sacrficing. Though it carries the woman close to the brink of death, motherhood also leads her into the very realm of the fountians of life and makes her co-partner with the Creator in bestowing upon eternal spirits mortal life. -David O McKay We can't form our children on our own concepts; we must take them and love them as God gives them to us. -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord; and the fruit of the womb is his reward. -Psalm 127:3 The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom -Henry Ward Beecher The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children. -Elaine Heffner People who say they sleep like babies usually don't have them. -Leo J. Burke
To be a mother is a woman's greatest vocation in life. She is a partner with God. No being has a position of such power and influence. She holds in her hands the destiny of nations, for to her comes the responsibility and opportunity of molding the nation's citizens. -Spencer W. Kimball
