as a little child



i read two verses over the last
few days Luke 18: 17,
Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein
and
John 18:36
Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world...

a little child can teach us much
i LOVE this picture
of Siah
he's going somewhere on that bike
so are those that know Christ....
......to His kingdom

to have determination
as a little child

to have faith
as a little child

to have the simple things
as a little child......

a sparkle in the eye
a smile on the face
all the while
we race
to His
Kingdom
I am so thankful
the best
is
yet
to come.....
and that i will get to see a little
child that i miss so much
in His kingdom!
because of Joel
i think of His kingdom....
almost every moment
do you?
are you going to His kingdom??
are you living for His
Kingdom??


Lets see......Thursday......school, which is going well, I do not have any complaints. Everyone is working hard and completing the days work. The guys are doing a small job close by, the big job they have been on is delayed because of the rain we have had. Next week will be a whirlwind with the State Fair. Bethany will take goats up on Mon. Show on Tues and Wed. with the Nubians. Will be home on Thurs. Then back on Friday and show on Saturday the Boer goats. Most of us will be there, Caleb, Daniel and Elijah will have to work while Terry helps with the goats. The shows are a fun thing our family enjoys doing together and mix that with a few Go-cart rides and wahoooo!!! Anna's BD is Thursday the 24th, she'll be 17!!! Her BD is going to be very low key!! As a matter of fact, I have to tell you all that I have made a "new decree!!" A person will get their last theme party at age 16 :( I asked them what age they wanted to stop, either, 14 or 16. Micah said, "16!!!" He said he needed ONE more!!! I know they have all been blessed by them and I'll miss doing them. Lord willing, I still have ALOT of parties to do!!! Oh, well.......I have to come to a halt someday!! We'll still celebrate but with a special meal, dessert and a gift.

Now how bout' a Caption Contest?!?!?!?!? Lets name this picture and we'll go until Monday 21st at noon!!! No anonymous and you can give a caption as many times as you like!!! The prize.....some Fall goodies!!!!
