Here's whats been going on around here....some fishin'!! Looks like the Rodeo is on, no rain as yet! We'll head to that after dinner and hope Andrew can hang on!!! Tomorrow the goat show, Bethany and Elijah have already left to check in, and groom the goats and then they will head over to our friends the B's later this evening and spend the night. The rest of us will go that way tomorrow.
I read a verse in Philippians 2:22, But ye know the proof of him, that as a son with the father, he hath served with me in the gospel. Once again just so grateful the Lord has allowed our family to experience this verse. Who knows our sons better than Terry, he knows what they can do, what they need to do and as he continues to work with them he can have the input in their lives and "prove them" as they work together and work the things in they need and work the things out that do not reflect Christ. And then in verse 25, Yet I supposed it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother and companion in labour, and fellowsoldier, but your messenger, and he that ministers to my wants. I hope and pray that our older children realize what a blessing it is to labour together and even more than that to be fellowsoldiers of Christ together and may they have a greater vision each day of seeeking the kingdom and ministering to their family and as the Lord gives opportunities to those around us. These verses jsut made me grateful for what the Lord has done and may he fulfill visions that you have for your families as well!!!
