It's lookin' good!

We had camp cleanup this past weekend. Lots of fun, lots of work. It's all coming together though. I think it is pretty much all done, last I heard, the trimming was still left, but that can be fixed. :) Now, we just have to pray for good weather during camp (although I do hope it rains again before then!). I'll post more pictures on the PBC blog...

There were lots of flowers to plant!

Happy birthday!! I love seeing the way you interact with Teagan and Trenton. You are so amazing with kids. (Which is probably why you coach :) I'm sure you'll call this another 'illegal' picture, but I'll post it anyway. Whether you know it or not, you really encourage me in my spiritual walk with the Lord. Thank you for all the fun times, whether it was cleaning, drinking homemade root beer or just talking. You are one of the people I admire the most. Happy birthday, and I hope you have a fun day!
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
:::Part of Psalm 19, Pauls favorite psalm:::


We had quite the celebration yesterday. Susan and Robert and Paul came over to celebrate. And Gabe and Shanon and cuties Trenton and Teagan. And Nathaniel and Alyse and sweet Elisabeth. And Florence. Now if you'll excuse me while I take pictures of the cutest kids...

But first we have to see kitties!!

Teagan loved the kittens. :)

Ted looks pretty fluffed up...


No, no, no, you have to hold it like this!

Wow. The two of us, in the same picture! :)

The old people ;)

Who do we trust?

Trust in yourself and you are doomed to disappointment;....but trust in God, and you are never to be confounded in time or eternity.

Dwight L. Moody
Are you facing fear today? Perhaps you are afraid of losing your job, of developing cancer or being left by your spouse. At times all of us experience fear. But don't allow fear to keep you from being used by God. He has kept you thus far; trust Him for the rest of the way.

A late Mother's Day

I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.

~Abraham Lincoln

Where would I be without my mother? I often wonder this. Where would I be without her prayers? Where would I be without her constant love for me? I don't know where I would be, but I'm very glad for what she gave me: a life, and a wonderful one at that.

Happy Mother's Day mom!! I love you!

[insert creative title here]

Well, I'm back home. Back to having the rolling plains in my backyard instead of HWAC (where my studio is). I'll try to update this more often. Now that I have time to eat and sleep. What a wonderful concept it is to be able to get more than four hours of sleep on average per night. Not much going on this summer. Prairie Bible Camp in June. Friday is a supper that I am going to with my mom (I think we are helping with the food). On Saturday, I am babysitting Sarah and then going to a play that one of my mom's friends is in (in a hayloft-- that should be a bunch of fun :). And Sunday is Mother's Day. Otherwise, not a lot going on. Wait, I lied. I helped Cindy with some school pictures on Tuesday (mom and I got back on Monday). She asked if I would be willing to help her with weddings, to which I heartily agreed! :) I might help a lady in the area clean her house. Otherwise, just doing housework, catching up on sleep, doing artsy projects, entering photographgy contests and remembering how to play piano again. :)
