One day while out in the barn, our goat Bethany was making the funniest ‘smiling’ faces!  She did better than this when the camera wasn’t out, but this gives you an idea of how ornery she was being!

Quote of the Week

             “Thus saith the Lord; cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.

            “For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.

             “Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.

             “For he shall be as a tree plnated by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.”

                                                                                                          Jeremiah 17:5 – 8

 Before You Meet Prince Charming: A Guide to Radiant Purity

This is probably the best book that I have read on this subject!  It is wonderful for all ages of girls, and is so helpful in showing you what you should be doing, before you meet your Prince Charming 🙂

Hinds' Feet on High Places and Mountains of Spices (Christian Classics for a New Generation)

   Hind’s Feet on High Places is an allegory of a girl named Much-Afraid, her journey to the mountains with the Shepherd, and how she is transformed into “Grace and Glory” by Him.

  Mountains of Spices is the continuing story, where she comes back to the valley with the Shepherd and wins her relatives over to the Shepherd’s service.

Cute Quotes

 We keep a family journal in which we write down all the funny little things that little people say, or just fun things that happen.  This time, I decided to type them out here as they are in our journal : )  Enjoy!

       Tonight Noah was going upstairs with me and was turning the light (stairway light) on and off, then ran up the stairs and was going to do it from  there, but I put the downstairs switch half-way so the light wouldn’t turn on.  He tried it upstairs several times, and when I asked him what he did to it, he said,

“I don’t know!  It was just working and now it ranned out!”

      The boys were supposed to be laying down on their blankets going to sleep, but while in the other room, I heard them making some noise.  When I went into their room, I saw them both kneeling beside the girls’ bed.  Isaiah looked at me (he had already been in trouble for getting off his blanket) and said, “Um, I doing prayers.”

       And while writing this, I am hearing more noise…
