Busy day

We've been very busy today. We baby-sitted today Then after they left. We had visitors come and eat supper with us. Then we went to Church and everyone came back to our house for a wee bit of fellowship. Grace told me to put that. I am going to get my room painted tomorrow. So Grace will post a picture of it. It sleeted and snowed here today. Grace took a few pictures so she is going to post it tomorrow. I really like my contacts. I have to go back to the optician's on Friday and order the contacts since they were just trial ones. I went to piano lesson today. It is so cold outside. Brrrrrr. Today is the last day of February. This month has passed really quick. Hannah's birthday is in March. She is turning 10.
Well snow long for now.

Grace and I got our new glasses today. We really like them. My glasses are purple and Grace's are aqua. I tried out contacts today. So I am doing a five day trial to see if I like them. We're really looking forward to Tuesday night because it's our first anniversery service at this building. I found this quote and I really liked it. I hope you enjoy it. .
Doubt sees the obstacles; faith sees the way. Doubt sees the darkest night; faith sees the day. Doubt dreads to take a step; faith soars on high. Doubt questions 'who believes?'; faith answers, 'I.'' -- Source Unknown

Our trip to Aunt Sandra's Candy Factory

Here's the pictures I took at the candy factory.

Aunt Sandra's Candy Factory. They make homemade candy etc...

Inside the candy factory. They have the biggest piece of candy rock in N.I.

Stretching the Candy. We watched David (The owner) make pineapple candy today.

Cutting strips to shape into candy. (Yummy!)

This is the machine that presses the candy into shapes. It's 50 years old! (WOW!)

Pressing the candy.

Pressing more candy. It's hard work!

Slabs of pineapple candy.

Breaking into smaller pieces.

Sorting out the candy.

The finished product!!!!!!!!!

Making a candy snake!

This is what David made the candy snake into. That's the biggest lollipop I've ever seen!

This is the group we took to Aunt Sandra's Candy factory. Don't we look funny?

Food For Thought

Hi, I found this quote and thought you might enjoy it. We should really watch our thoughts, words, actions, habits, and our character.
Watch your thoughts; they become your words. Watch your words; they become your actions. Watch your actions; they become your habits. Watch your habits; they become your character. Watch your character for it will become your destiny. -- Unknown

Psalm 100

1. Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. 2. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. 3. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 4. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
Psalm 100

Greetings, I've just got back from my piano lesson. Everything was okay at the dentist. Praise the Lord! My Mom has been baking banana bread. It smells wonderful. Here's a little bit about us.
Grace is in 9th grade, she doesn't have a favorite subject. She likes them all. I am in 10th grade and my favorite subject is history. And Hannah is in 5th grade and her favorite subject is science. On Friday, Grace and I are going to start making a small quilt for home economics. We'll be going to Church tonight. Well I think I'll go try a little bit of my Mom's banana bread.
In Christ,

The Weaver

We went to Church this morning. It was a good service. The title of the sermon
was "Grace all the way." It was excellent. We are going to our friend's house after Church tonight. Tomorrow Hannah and I are going to the dentist. Then I am going to come home and eat a candybar. I'm just joking. Here's one of my favorite poems.
The Weaver
My life is but a weaving between my Lord and me.
I cannot choose the colors He works so steadily.
Oft' times He weaves in sorrow and I, in foolish pride,
forget He sees the upper and I, the underside.
The dark threads are as needed in the Weaver's skillful hand,
as the threads of gold and silver in the pattern He has planned.
Not to the loom is silent and shuttles cease to fly,
will God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why.
Well I'd better go for now and get ready for Church.
In Christ,
