Carlie’s hair does amazing things when she’s jumping on a trampoline. Carline and Donnie have been jumping on our neighbor’s trampoline since they were kind enough to share it with us. We really have some good neighbors.
Nessa asked Donnie where the cows were and this is what she got. Usually there are cows out in the field by the road but they must have been on the other side of the woods at the time.
Nessa took the kids out for a picnic in the yard. She is constantly coming up with new ideas to keep the kids learning and feeling loved. Raising kids might cost $100k a year in potential income we could earn if Nessa were a nurse, but the wealth gained from raising happy, loved children far surpasses any dollar amount you could make in life. True wealth is not in a bank account or in hard assets but in using those things as just one of your tools to bring the happiest life possible. Mothering children is the highest calling that has ever been or will ever be.
Carlie fell asleep on our way home from church last Sunday. She was one exhausted girl after having dinner on the grounds and spending time playing at the church. The last Sunday of every month our church has dinner on the grounds. When that happens we don’t have a Sunday evening service. Last Sunday Pastor Stead told me about a small church he knew of named Stump Springs Baptist Church. It’s in Munson. Don’t look for it on google I don’t think it’s there. It’s a tiny little place but what a great church and a good spirit to the place! I love how Pastor Stead is not afraid to promote other churches in our local area, even letting preachers in our area come to preach at Solid Rock. He truly recognizes that the church is the Lord’s and we are just part of the body of Christ.
