The other night... sisters painting away....

We are still getting lots of snow...

Celeisa, playing.


My new knitted wrist warmers...

The little ladies, wearing their new made-by-Autumn shawls.

{I can't wait to be able to start the garden, and be able to have our own lettuce, swiss chard, and spinach!}

{ made with spaghetti squash, noodles, sauce, ground beef, and cheese...mmmm}
"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us."
"I am graven on the palms of His hands. I am never out of His mind. All my knowledge of Him depends on His sustained initiative in knowing me. I know Him, because He first knew me, and continues to know me. He knows me as a friend, One who loves me; and there is no moment when His eye is off me, or His attention distracted from me, and no moment, therefore, when His care falters. He sees all the twisted things about me that my fellow-men do not see (and I am glad!), and that He sees more corruption in me than that which I see in myself (which, in all conscience, is enough). There is, however, equally great incentive to worship and love God in the thought that, for some unfathomable reason, He wants me as His friend, and desires to be my friend, and has given His Son to die for me in order to realize this purpose."

J.I Packer.

"The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.

The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.

The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.

Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer."
Psalm 19.


  1. Well, we have a spaghetti squash sitting on the counter!! NOW I need to go get some ricotta cheese!! THANKS so much for sharing that lovely idea...I was wanting to have some, but need to avoid gluten so this ought to taste wonderful (though with brown rice noodles it is superb, but the veggie version would be best of course)!!

  2. Sweet days...

    My littles have been doing a lot of art lately too...

    I must sew today...I haven't done it enough lately!


  3. Sweet! Love the pics of the littles. Wish we would get some snow. Speaking of lasagna, I am making Mexican lasagna today and a Lemon Bar Trifle. Much love to everyone! RaquelXoxsoxooxXOXxoxooxoxXO

  4. So much beauty! Thank you, Rosie. A visit here never fails to warm and feed me. Much love to each one of you.

  5. I really like the colors of wool that you picked out for your fingerless mitts. Very pretty!! Goodwife rose
