Love My Kids




You realize your kids are grown up when they do grown up things safely and responsibly. My two oldest children drove all the way to Lake Shasta for a weekend. God kept them safe and they did all the right things parents hope they'd do. I love you Victoria and Harrison. "As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him." Psalm 18:30

She Doesn't Ask For A Lot: Just A Few Friends Over And... A DeLorean?

All she wanted for her birthday was a few friends over for  a fire pit...
Check!
Victoria also asked for a Delorean. That might not be so easy for her parents to supply, but we will see.
Her friends came...
Not only did they come, but they built a fort too...
So we have campfire, friends, but now we need food.
To celebrate we had hot dogs...
....and  pork & beans.

We have great atmosphere, but where is the cake? and how about that Delorean?
Problem solved! One happy girl!  We love you Victoria! Happy Birthday!
Matthew 7:9-11 “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone?  Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake?  If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!"

Enchanted Evening

Where are these young ladies going at twilight?
Maybe there is something magical happening at the top of this hill?
Something special for two people for sure.


Garrett's teacher, Justine, from 4th grade is getting married in this lovely place.
The lovely Justine happens to also be our daughter, Jessica's track and cross country coach.
She seemed glad we came.

The bull frogs bleepin' in the pond added just the right touch, at this fairy land experience.
My hubby and I are so happy for Justine and Daniel.
We all had a great time. Psalm 118:24 "This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it".

Sunday Morning Canoe Ride



 Jessica, Garrett and Harrison went with their dad on a Sunday morning canoe ride.

 I was the drop off and pick up person. While they paddled down the river, my other daughter, Victoria and I went to church.  After church we picked them up.
 Getting ready to launch.

 Here they are three hours later.
 Here are all six of us from left to right: Jessica, Harrison, me (Kathi), Victoria, Garrett and Stacey (my hubby).
What a wonderful day. My husband read from The Daily Bread. It was peaceful day for all of us. God is so good.   Isaiah 43:2 "When thou passest through the waters, I [will be] with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee..."

God Sent Susie

I was home alone for the weekend. I diced peaches and froze them for smoothies and I picked green beans and dill and canned dilly beans. I also picked cucumbers and made a large crock of dill pickles, which is fermenting on my counter. Somewhere during the day I began feeling very down. We are going through some extended family troubles, which really hurts my sisters, parents and I. I began praying as I took the recycling out of the garage, and there stood Susie with a huge smile.
Sometimes God sends us a person. Susie talked with me and read some Psalms out loud to me. I felt so much better. Thank you Lord, "I know all things will work out for good to them that love God." Romans 8:28
