Thank You Lord.....



I am so thankful for Terry in that he is the exact measure that I need to bring my scale in to balance when I get "earthy" and have an eye to the "things of this world." Maybe having the company coming triggered my discontented attitude about things of the house. Terry washed me with the truth and as I lay in bed last night and thought, my sight was redirected. So I can now look at all these "things" and say thank you ...... thank you Lord for the children that keep my kitchen floor so dirty, thank you Lord for the children that have battered and bruised the painted walls in our house, I know some of the paint knocked off was done by my Joel :) so I am thankful he was here to do it, thank you Lord for the mountain of laundry the children make and is piled on the couch and can not be hid in a nice big laundry room, thank you Lord for my children that pulled off pieces of wallpaper, thank you Lord for a 15 passenger van that creaks and groans and that I have children to fill it up and we do not have to have a tiny car that only hold a few, thank you Lord for the children that have skidded across the floors and the hardwoods need refinishing ( I remember the older ones pulling Joel and Josiah on blankets through the house) thank you Lord for the children that have chipped and banged and pulled on the kitchen cabinet doors that will not stay shut, thank you Lord for the crowd of children that gathers around our table and there is not any room to maneuver when we eat, thank you Lord for windows that are broke and taped up because brothers and sisters are being brothers and sisters, thank you Lord for the children that have worn out furniture and needs to be retired, thank you Lord that our house is full......that you have filled our chambers with precious and pleasant riches.......and thank you my dear husband......

Terry's folks are due to arrive after lunch. Right now Bethany and Anna have gone over to the work site and are taking pictures of the house the guys are working on, so when they get back I'll put some at the bottom of this post. I think it has been good that I did not see them until today, their last day......the Lord has taken care of them and we are grateful! The girls are back and WOW, that is sooo high!!!!! Our four man crew and Micah and Andrew helped on a few days built this, its three story....remember its Build Block, kinda like putting giant legos together and then today they have a pump truck and will walk along the walk boards and fill them up with concrete. That big hole in the middle of the floor is the basement, Terry said they are going to put some sort of slide to get down to it, sounds interesting and maybe thats what I need to get to shove stuff in, like laundry:) Thank the Lord for work like this!!!

Caleb and Daniel are done with Pendragon music. So funny last night, they had that studio closed up and lights off, I do not think they even went in there. After dinner they came outside, raked some leaves, help clean up and they played football and I think they went to bed a little after 10pm, compared to their staying up until 4am! Their next project is making some sample music for a company that needs music for the phone when a customer holds on the line, does that make sense? And if they like the samples they will then compose some little 30 second tracts for them to use.

Yesterday was grocery day, all went well with that. Thank you Lord that I get to buy a lot of groceries for all the children you have blessed us with......I'll keep you posted if any exciting adventures happen while the grandparents are here.....knowing "Pop" there will surely be some!!!

Thank you so much for the first part of what you wrote. Today is one of "those days" at our house where it seems like no matter what I pick up there is always something in the floor, dishes to be done, and toys to put away. I was looking at it as a bad thing, but its nice to see it as a blessing. I am very blessed to have the 3 little ones that make those messes.

You always puit things into such great prespective.
