A few of our favorites!

Me and my husband have been looking back through old pics and found one of each of the kids that is one of our favorites! The first one is of Dickie and Savannah riding "Pesky" at Carter Creek Ranch and the other is of Jake riding "Angel" at a youth ranch rodeo at the same ranch. The pictures are from a few years ago, and the children look so little! With the tragedy this past weekend I have been going back and looking through old pictures. It has brought back some great memories. They are growing up so fast. And this next year Savannah will be starting kindergarten! And Jake is in high school this year!! It does not seem possible that they are that old yet. I know from this past week that I have been thanking the Lord for my family-husband, children, health, friends, church, etc. I know I get so involved in the world today and forget the most important things and blessings that we have right now. That is what the devil wants us to do and tries so hard to do to us. That is one of the things that I struggle with sometimes, especially when I do not stay in the Word. But I know in my heart those things I sometimes want are just that "things". If I had to choose between wants and my family and a loving God, I will choose God and family for sure. I know I am truly blessed with a great Christian husband, 2 healthy kids, a home, horses, great Christian friends, church, etc. The list could go on and on. The world today wants us to think about the things we do not have and want, not to be thankful for what we do have. I came across a verse in the bible today and wanted to share it with you- "And may the Lord make your love for one another and for all people grow and overflow, just as our love for you overflows." 1 Thessalonians 3:12 (NLT)

This evening as I was on the website Desiring God, John Piper was talking about the death of his father. And as I was reading the article a verse jumped out at me and I wanted to share it, it goes along with this post. "Satisfy us each morning with your unfailing love, so we may sing for joy to the end of our lives." Psalm 90:14 (NLT). Satisfy us with your love, not the toys of the world. In Christ we are saved, safe and satisified. This is a great website to visit. God bless you all.
