I wait quietly before God, for my victory comes from him. Psalm 62:1 NLT

Happy Sunday!!

   We, as Christians, need to be courageous for Christ! He has approved and appointed us to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the world. How amazing is that? We need to totally surrender our thoughts and aspirations-everything-to Him, because HE cares for you! God is faithful. 

‘But just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the Gospel, so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who examines our hearts.’
- 1 Thessalonians 2:4

An Update on Judah

I am proud to say that I am related to the cutest baby...ever! 
I hope my children will be as cute...pray...;)!!

Have you ever seen anything so adorable? 

Anyway, Mom and I watched Little Man (while Liv and Bud went to a Red Sox game) this past week Let it be known: Olivia is simply amazing in using cloth diapers. I don't know if I will ever be that ambitious. Haha! I am proud of her!

About Six Months Ago...

...we celebrated our birthdays!

Big Brother Bud: 24! Victoria (me): 17!

Joseph and William pretty much love any party! 

Oompa (African word for "grandfather") and I.

WOW! I need to blog more! This is a bit overdue. :)


So, obviously, this picture is from Photo Booth. I'm quite grateful that my nephew doesn't have extremely large cheeks. :)

Isn't he adorable!

I'm probably biased.

But, seriously, he is ADORABLE!!!

Hunter's orange nail polish....for hunting season. Um, YES!

(yep, just a little bit of randomness from Brookfield).

 We have had hardly any snow this month.

 How do you fix that? 

By having a nor'easter...or, should I say "nor'easta"?

All I'll say about it, is that snow is wicked awesome, bub. ;)

Pictures from last year.

The Circle Maker

 Okay, I have started "The Circle Maker." Before I started it, I was a bit skeptical...I'm not going to lie. I am no longer a skeptic, however. It is such an encouraging book! One of the things that I have gleaned from it, is the fact that our dreams need to be His dreams.

 It is all about HIM! How can we use our lives to serve those around us? By obeying the Lord's commands. Why are we here? To glorify HIM and to serve HIM forever.
 So often, we are consumed by selfish desires, and, sadly, we act upon those desires. BUT, "...the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear Him..." (Psalm 103: 17) Who's mercy? HIS. 

     I will probably write more on this book later...this is just the beginning...so encouraging! :)

Are Our Rights Being Infringed Upon?

You decide.

It's simple enough, people!
Have you read the Second Amendment?
Well, here you go:

Amendment ll
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

...nope. I was wrong. Overtime! Hopefully they do win, though!


Due to the screaming downstairs, I think the Baltimore Ravens just won! Yeah!!! (although football isn't really my thing...at all;)

  Mom and I get on our little kicks. This time, we are in to the Bulk Herb Store! A fascinating thing, I assure you. Being healthy and making your own tinctures, poultices, and other strange concoctions are going to be our new hobbies. So, if you don't care for the smell of earthy things, I do not recommend that you come to our home!
  We haven't gotten too many herbs yet...start small and get information...don't just dive in! This is something that takes real effort on my part. When I get an idea, I tend to delve into it with full force. Then, I don't always finish what I start. This is definitely a character flaw that needs fixed!
  So, back to healthy living, have you heard of kelp? Well, it is a type of marine algae (a.k.a. seaweed), it contains folic acid, vitamin K, magnesium, calcium, iron and other trace minerals and it is rich in iodine.
We use a bit less than one teaspoon of kelp powder in a smoothie.You may want to start with an even smaller amount.  
Everyones body is different. You might want to use 1/2 of a teaspoon or even 1/4 of a teaspoon.
It's green and tastes nasty, but, I hear that you acquire a taste for it! I pray it's true, because it tastes like saltwater.  To health!

Should we have the right to bear arms?

Read this:
2nd Amendment no longer needed?

One of the most interesting quotes that I have read on gun control: “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.” ~Adolf Hitler

Thomas Jefferson: “What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.” (emphasis mine).

Would you care to argue with me on the fact that we need our guns?  I didn't think so.
