a monster !!!






I did not believe in monsters, but I do now, because there is one here on our property!!!! A MONSTER TRUCK!!!!! I guess big six foot guys need big trucks! Daniel now owns a Ford 250 that is sooooooo high I literally can not get in it without hanging on to a strap. Yesterday Daniel, Caleb, Micah, Anna and Andrew traveled to Missouri to pickup this pickup! Another one of Mercy's prayers "checked" off the list. Caleb's truck still being prayed for. I am ready for the "wife" prayers to get answered!!!!! LOL!!!!!! In God's time!!! Can you see how tall the truck is in the picture? Mercy and the tire are bout the same height. Being a woman, can't quite figure out why a guy wants such a big truck, I always think practically, like grocery shopping, I would need a forklift to get the stuff in it. I guess Daniel will have to take his wife grocery shopping!!!! :) Well, we are grateful for answered to prayers once again and pray this truck will be of service for many years for Daniel and all his needs with the land.

We have approached an anniversary! This month it has been three years of being self employed, owning our own construction business! Three years of God's faithfulness and provision! This was a vision that was prayed for, for many years prior to Terry leaving Sara Lee. God worked through the events of managerial changes to fulfill Terry's desire and work with his sons. During this season of three years there was really one specific time of "no work." It was Dec./Jan of 08. Some of it was hindered with weather. Other than that it has been steady work.
Three years of seeing God's faithfulness! To be honest I was a bit leary of this adventure but knowing my husbands faith and confidence in God, I was able to rest in this new beginning for our family. And when you think of so many details of ages with our sons, it all was so timely and with abilities they now had as young men it was certainly an opportunity for them to put to use the scripture that speaks of the glory of young men is their strength! So we rejoice and praise the Lord for His goodness to our family!

Going to get out in the great hot sun today and bask!!! Girls are going to iron. Guys are pouring a big concrete job today and little people have new baseball equip so they are on the field/pasture!!!!!!

Have a great weekend!!!!!

LOL!!! Love the truck! Yes, you might need a step ladder to climb in (or a trampoline - just run and jump!) but it will come in very handy! Extended cab is good for carrying extra passengers, and it's big enough to get the job done!

And congratulations on your self-employment anniversary! That is something to be proud of - God has certainly bless your family!

Practical for tall boys perhaps, but certainly not for short ladies! I had a hard enough time scrambling into the F250 on the farm last summer, never mind a truck this huge!
