Fourteen Years Ago

And, I still remember.  I remember to number my days aright.  I remember to be grateful that I am able to get up and clean two (plugged) toilets first thing in the morning.  I stand in awe and praise my Sovereign God and read again Daniel 4.  
Then I praised the Most High; I honored and glorified him who lives forever.
His dominion is an eternal dominion;
    his kingdom endures from generation to generation. 
All the peoples of the earth
    are regarded as nothing. 
He does as he pleases 
    with the powers of heaven
    and the peoples of the earth.
No one can hold back his hand 
    or say to him: “What have you done?” 
I remember the hand-written note given to me by my precious Mrs. Scherer:
"Dear Lara,
My grace is sufficient for you.
I am memorizing Titus 1:1-3 which reminds me that I have HOPE for eternal life -- my faith rests upon this hope!  Amen for HOPE, yes?
Just a moment I wanted to remember. Love the expressions, particularly the pre-teen in the middle!
And, they're off!

Grateful to have these five kiddos!

most of the time!

They posed for me :)  I love them.  Pray for them.  And their future spouses...

Sweet Solace

Each week I am privileged to enjoy this setting for an hour.  Another teaches.  I rest, enjoy, play, read, study, and...    take pictures.

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.I love honeysuckle.  Brings back memories of waiting for the school bus and sipping on the sweet nectar.  Ohhhh, honeysuckle!

Just being here rejuvenates me!  Dreaming of creating this in MY back yard.

One of my favorite people!  When they read, they are quiet.  I love my readers!
