Life with braces
The previous post with the picture of Hannah is of her with her bracket stuck on the pillow.
Autumn got it right! It was definitely hard not to laugh at her as she was calling for me to get the pillow off her bracket :)
We have been going to Campmeeting for the past two weeks.
It will end on Friday night. My husband spoke last Wednesday morning.
We have enjoyed getting to see old friends and meeting new ones.
We are hoping to go next week to the Asheboro Zoo with all of Allen's family.
We haven't been there since Lydia and Grace were little.
We are planning to bring a picnic lunch.
Hannah and I got all the housecleaning done this morning, while everyone else was at Campmeeting. We even got all the ironing done and Hannah planted some wildflower seeds. Allen has taken Grace back for a checkup on her wrist. They drained her Ganglion Cyst
about 2 months ago. She had to wear a brace on her wrist for 4 weeks. She has gone without her brace for 6 weeks now. It looks so much better.
Bye for now,

God's Love
Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love. -
Jeremiah 31:3
We can only see a little of the ocean,
A few miles distant from the rocky shore;
But out there-beyond, beyond our eyes' horizon,
There's more-there's more.
We can only see a little of God's loving-
A few rich treasures from His mighty store;
But out there-beyond, beyond our eyes' horizon,
There's more-there's more!

Happy 400th, Jamestown

We have seen alot of pictures of Jamestown this week. We have enjoyed the pictures over at Mountain Musings. So I decided to post some of our pictures when we were in Jamestown and Williamsburg last year.

What God Can Do


There is no saying what God will do,

As He works for me and He works for you;

He knows no limit to power or skill;

There is naught with standeth His word or will;

He knoweth not "problem" or such like word,

For He is Almighty, the sovereign Lord.

There is no saying what God may do

On behalf of those who to Him are true,

Who, with all their soul, their heart and mind,

Would in His glad service their true joy find;

No, there's no saying what God may do

For such of His children---this, friend, means you.

So, if we know not what God may do,

Shall we brace ourselves to have faith anew?

Some glad suprise He may send to-day,

Or remove some block from the now blocked way;

He is omnipotent, and can do

The impossible thing for me and you.
