Of campfires and cook-outs.

A week or so ago, we had a picnic at our home.
James and Abbie, Wesley and Claire and our friends, Aaron and Jasmine all came over...it was a wonderful day of fellowship. 

Serving food.


Julia and James.

Stan Lee.


The watermelon eater.


Josie and Georgie.

Wagon rides.

Aaron, with his littlest one.

Now Julia gets to hold him!

Then I do...

So sweet.


Sweet lil Mister.

Later in the evening we had a fire and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows.

Homemade potato salad.

Patiently waiting for her stick to be sharpened.




Stan Lee, and James.

Abbie, knitting, and Aimajia looking on.


And then here are some random pictures from around home...

Happy little girls.

Three little Indians, outside their tepee.

A sunny corner.

Tea drinking and knitting...a new sock.

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope." 

Romans 15:13

"No gift unrecognized as coming from God is at its own best...when in all gifts we find Him, then in Him we shall find all things."

George MacDonald

"My hope lives not because I am not a sinner, but because I am a sinner for whom Christ died; my trust is not that I am holy, but that being unholy, He is my righteousness. My faith rests not upon what I am, or shall be, or feel, or know, but in what Christ is, in what He has done, and in what He is now doing for me."

Charles H. Spurgeon

"To truly love someone is to see them as God intended." 

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
