A Couple Weeks Gone By!

"I will exalt you,  my God and King,
and praise your name forever and ever.
I will praise you every day;
yes, I will praise you forever.
Great is the Lord!  He is most worthy of praise!
No one can measure his greatness.
Let each generation tell its children of your mighty acts,
let them proclaim your power."
Psalm 145:1-4
Valerie, and her helper, Benjamin ;-),
have been working hard getting the garden planted.
Now God is growing it! ;-)

 Victoria and Caroline drove over to Moro, Oregon last weekend
to help their friend, Leslie, show some of her goats.
They also took a few of their own to show as well.
(The two goats pictured below belong to Leslie.)  

Valerie babysat for some friend's older four kiddos for a few days recently.
She brought them over yesterday to play . . .
 and ride the horse.
These two sure enjoyed one another!
 They were sooooo sweet together!
And the boys really enjoyed some good "boy" time!
 Gathering around for a story!  
Us girls had a very fun visit and sleepover last week with Lydia
while Richie was away at a training for a couple days.
We watched a movie, ate pie and ice-cream, and stayed up late talking!  ;-)
Then, the next night, the boys had their turn. 
They also watched a movie and ate . . . a lot!
Thanks, Lydia, for your sweet hospitality!
We had a great time!!!!

We'd be so grateful for your prayers for our beloved Pastor Dean.
He hasn't been feeling well for a long time now. 
We love him so much,
and are sooooo grateful for the blessing of his ministry to God's people and beyond.
He is such an awesome, Godly man and leader,
and is usually full of energy.
It has been challenging for him to not have his full strength and stamina.
And it makes us sad to see him not feeling well.
 Ted has been busy preparing a sermon to fill in for Pastor Dean this Sunday.
His message is titled "Fatherhood by Faith,"
based on Joshua 24:14-15.
 Thank you so much for praying with us,
that Pastor Dean will be back to full health soon,
and that God's truth and Ted's message
will bring strong hope and encouragement to our brothers at SVCC,
and touch their minds and hearts in a way that will impact even future generations!
 We've been enjoying hearing Caroline practice a new arrangement of
"Holy, Holy, Holy!!"
(So sorry for the bad video quality!  It is so much better "live!!")

The garden looks great. Looks like a lot of work but I will try to do my part and help you eat it. Wonderful pictures of everybody. Looks like a nice day on the lake. Caroline & Victoria must be making a name for themselves with goat showing. Love you, Meemom
