Memorial Day...

We thank and remember those that died
for our freedom and the freedom of others.

We praise and thank the Lord of all for Him Who died
for our ultimate freedom from sin and Hell.

"Greater love hath no man than this,
that a man lay down his life for his friends."
~ John 15:13

Beloved and I will be traveling this weekend
to work on our house in SC,

as our tenants have left and we are trying to sell it.
We appreciate your prayers
and hope you enjoy your holiday weekend.

Daddy's Birthday Saturday...

What a busy week it's been!
Busy weeks seem to be frequent for us lately
and my lack of blogging shows it.
I hope y'all are doing well
and I do look forward to catching up one of these days.

I had a few moments so I wanted to share
some photos from Daddy's birthday last Saturday.
We sang the traditional Happy Birthday song,
gave our cards and a few gifts,
and ate Daddy's brownie cake... Mmmm!

Afterwards, Daddy wanted to go to a local field to play ball.
We had a lot of fun (and I took A LOT of pictures)...

Here was Daddy blowing up one of the balls...




Daddy's waitin'

Tossing the football with Will and Daddy...

Daddy and Ally

Ally caught Daddy kicking the ball
and we've been chuckling at the pose ever since... lol

Ally got to bring the van around by the net
so we could use the back of it for sitting
(I have mixed emotions about this

The lil' girls enjoying a snack...

And Ally was thrilled to play her guitar...

She and Daddy enjoyed singing...

Dad and Will enjoyed a quick game of basketball...

The field we were at was near the water
and I got a few photos as everyone enjoyed the view...


Beth and Ally

Here was a shot of Beth and Carolynne sharing a snack...

And here was Carolynne's choice of footwear for the day...


Afterwards we headed home for supper.
Daddy wanted to grill outdoors...

As we waited for supper,
Ally spent a few moments

Will practiced riding a bike...

Carolynne and Beth enjoyed playing with Legos...

It was a busy and delightful day spent with Daddy!

"And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children,
and the heart of the children to their fathers..."
~ Malachi 4:6

"While I live will I praise the LORD:
I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being."
~ Psalm 146:2

Pickin' and Jammin'...

Monday we went on a field trip to a local strawberry farm.
This is our third year to go strawberry pickin'

and have learned that we absolutely love it.
Last year, we began a new tradition of jamming

some of our berries, which is a lot of fun, as well. ;o)

I had a little time to spend online
and wanted to share some moments from our day of pickin'...

Carolynne and Beth ready to pick

Enjoying the fruit of her labors, too.

Beth going to search with Ally

Will and Carolynne enjoy some together

Calling it a day ;o)

We enjoyed snacking on the delicious strawberries this week,
along with some Cool Whip, too. Mmmm!
We've, also, been enjoying our homemade jam
(which we look forward to sharing with others)...
It's a little less solid/spreadable than last year
but we are enjoying it as a wonderful dipping sauce, as well!

"O taste and see that the LORD is good:
blessed is the man that trusteth in him."
~ Psalm 34:8
