Keep looking in the right direction in everything you do - to Jesus;
keep looking up and kneeling down. We are not ready for the battle until
we have seen the Lord, for Jesus is the answer to all problems. - Corrie Ten Boom
To a young child, the world is full of materials to touch, discover, and explore.
To find, collect, sort, and use materials is to embark on a special kind of adventure. - Cathy Weisman Topal and Lella Gandini, Beautiful Stuff
...I need to be able to worship God in any situation.
I don't need the best lighting, the best band, or the best anything to worship God.
I can turn my heart toward Him in any circumstance. - Stan Endicott
On Sunday, when it was time to leave Beulah, Annie realized she couldn't find her retainer. We looked everywhere and time was ticking away. Then we started to talk about how costly it could be to replace it. I said, "Dad, can you pray we find the retainer?" He replied, "Pay or pray?" I think I scared him and we giggled!
Dad started to pray and about 30 seconds into the prayer, Mom laughed and held the retainer up high saying, "The Lord has delivered!" (I guess she wasn't praying with her eyes closed!) The look on everyone's faces was priceless. It was found between the couch cushions where Annie had slept and we had already checked there multiple times.
Thank You for helping us find the retainer, God. What a sweet reminder of YOU on that Sunday afternoon in the cottage!
a weekend we can all be at Beulah
riding on the ferry
a dependable car to travel in
going to yard sales with family
hearing Dad tell stories
the kids kayaking on the river
the family playing Parcheesi
