Quote of the Week

          “Jesus sees the cries of our spirit, and actually defines us by our budding virtues. He does not define us by our struggles, He defines us by the cry in our spirit to say “Yes” to Him.”
                 – Mike Bickle

Cute Quotes
The older ones of us Seven Sisters are realizing how much our little sisters have missed out  in hardly knowing what a film camera is,  getting to be on the computer at a much younger age than any of us were (because computers were much different when we were their age!), etc.  : D  That makes us sound very old, but really, lots has changed in the past 15 to 20 years!


Mommy was cleaning and found a bag of undeveloped film.  She laid it on her computer desk and Charissa asked, “What are those?!”


When we were looking for a Christmas tree, we stick a weed or an old branch in a promising evergreen so that we can find it again if we want to come back to it.   After finding a tree that we thought was worth putting into our “favorites”, Charissa asked, “Did we bookmark that Christmas tree?”


Noah and Isaiah were chasing each other, and Noah wanted to stop for a minute to take off his socks.  He called out to Isaiah, “Pause!  Isaiah, pause!”   Mommy said that when she was little, it was “times”, not “pause”!



 There is this Christmas e-card that the little ones have seen, and they happen to think it is funny enough to copy…here’s Noah’s version of it 🙂  I personally like Noah’s better than Daysprings 😀  If you can’t see the video here on the blog, click HERE to see it.





    Note: The Seven Sisters Treasures is a weekly post where we share some of our favorite things.  We try to post  a new one every Friday.  Hope you enjoy!  ~The Farmgirls
