Take me out to the Ballgame!

Rangers vs. Blue Jays. It was the perfect day for a game. The sun was hot and warm and the breeze with crisp and cool. We were gathering to celebrate Peggy's birthday.
So sorry Texans, Jays won, ;)

Our One and Only, Peggy

What a day!

I just can't get over the amazing work, power and grace of our God. Our Awesome God. He reveals Himself time and time again through people I dont even know personally, and today was one of those days, I saw a puzzle piece fit into the entire puzzle. Piece # 18762 Im not quite sure how many pieces make up this puzzle, but what God is showing me (thanks Olga!) is that we might not see the entire puzzle, but we rejoice when we see that we are apart of a piece fitting in, just perfectly so, into the divine vision, the purpose of it all. Its not about places, or things, or even time. Its about the purpose of why we were created. Why were you created? ********************************** We are made in the likeness of God. OF GOD the creator of the universe! Now, wrap your heads around that one! He(God) just WOWed me today with sharing how He has revealed Himself to other believers with the same vision that we (our house church) have received. We are apart of a bigger picture and when you understand that, fully, in your innermost being, all the other "stuff" is just small stuff. thank you jesus

Easter Hunt!

At the Zoo

Rae and 2 of her cousins, Hannah and Rachael went to the zoo about 3 weeks ago on an unseasonally warm day. She did come home with a pink nose! I forgot to pack the sunscreen! You need that stuff in MARCH when in Texas!

Liv is getting so big -- she is 6 1/2 months in this photo! Compare that to the one when she was 2 months! Amazing isnt it? Rae loves her bunches and tells everyone she sees that, "here is my baby sista, her name is lee-e-aa." Olivia is probably the most smiley baby I have seen. I am not just saying that! She is our tulip in the middle of the storm...

What is this white stuff ?

Snow in Texas.

I think this occurred the last week in Feb/first week in March. I cannot recall. But Ramona had a blast! At first she didnt like the feel of the cold after holding the snow, so as soon as I could find the mitts and get them on her, she was more open to picking up the snow again. And of course had to give it a taste!

Time with God


It was bitter sweet rummaging through all the materials that use to tell me who,

The person was behind it all,

It was just stuff, but could I tell?

That He was pursuing me still?

Its been almost 5 years since I said yes and it still doesn’t all make sense.

“It doesn’t my beloved,” He whispers to me.

“It wont make sense, til you’re here with me.”

“So take time to reflect and remember whats true, that I was the one who brought you through,

You are a NEW creation, you will always be, nothing can take that away, you see?”

But what about this and what about that?

Does this not matter, won’t it affect?

“My love is bigger than the highest mountain, and my forgiveness and grace is more than the water inhabits the earth. I made you for Me, for Me, I made you.”
