This Week's Scripture


"Nor shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be doomed to destruction like it." Deuteronomy 7:26

This Week's Prayer!


We invite Your Holy Spirit to dwell in these rooms, which belongs to Henry, Anthony, Zoƫ, Asa, Rose, Grace, and Elijah, and in Heidi, Angel, and Angela's room. You are Lord over heaven and earth, and we proclaim that You are Lord over their rooms as well. Flood it with Your light and life. We pray that You, Lord, will make their rooms a holy place, sanctified for Your glory. And may You also dwell in our room and in each one of our extended family and friend's rooms.

Big and Blessed!

Big and blessed.....that's what we are! Our family is big.
Our backyard is big.

Our van is big
(don't let the picture fool you, it IS big!)


Our pots are big!

Even our butter is big (5 lbs. of it!)


Even me and Tommy are big(ger) than we used to be!

But most of all our blessings are BIG because our God is BIG!

Thank you God for the big blessings in our life!

What a blessing to meet you here! Your family is precious. So glad you are blogging! Welcome!

To answer your question, Bluebirdblogs.com did my layout. Susie is great and she charges about $39 (or so). It is very time consuming to figure it out for yourself, so it is money well spent!

Hope this helps! Have a great day!

What an incredible story! I have really enjoyed reading about your journey. You and Tommy are inspiring. It is good to see that you do have a little time to yourself, to sit and type.

Melodye, yes I have gone blogging on CWO random and saw some cool blogs and I commented and they have already commented back. Katherine is one on this postcomment with five children and Rachel actually had HPC and Children's Cup on her links which was amazing since I had clicked the random key and she came up! Did you go there yet?

Thanks, Katherine!
Definitely small world, Rachel!

Aimee' your blog is really taking flight. You have done a good, job, but hey you do a good job at what ever you tackle. Keep up the good work. God has you ear marked for something much bigger that raising all of my Grandchildren. It just might not come to light, until they are all grown. LOL
