Luke 2:12-13 "For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger."

Blessings and Books

Don't you love this song "Blessing" by Laura Story?


Have any of you ever read or listened to the Lamplighter books? I love the audio book A Peep Behind the Scenes. Here is the link to the website. You can listen to portions of their audio books on there too. I love that their mission is to: "make ready a people prepared for the Lord, by building Christ-like character one story at a time.”

I hope you have a wonderful Monday,

A Quote

“I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.”~ Laura Ingalls Wilder

I love Laura Ingalls Wilder don't you? I've read her little house books and have watched the shows. A friend from church and I always laugh at how funny they make Mrs. Oleson. My favorite shows are Here comes the Brides and Come, Let Us reason together and tons of others. My favorite book is Little Town on the Prairie. The Bible Bee officially starts Monday but they released the materials Wednesday so Morgan wanted to start memorizing early. The good thing about having a blog you share is that when one of you takes a blogging break you still have the other one!=). I hope you have a great weekend!

The Anne-Girl

The Anne of Green Gables novels have recently become some of my favorite books. They make me laugh at Anne's funny sayings and messes she gets into. I have recently started the second book and can't wait to continue reading more of them. After I finish them though I would like to read "The Story Girl". Here is one of my favorite quotes from the Anne-girl.

And I promise I'll never do it again. That's the one good thing about me. I never do the same wrong thing twice. ~Anne Shirley. Anne spelled with an e.

Tornadoes in the South

This past Tuesday we heard that there would be bad storms and possibly tornadoes in our area. We didn't really think that there would be tornadoes just some bad storms. But on Wednesday 3 rounds of tornadoes hit in our town and many towns around us. The first was in the morning around 6 or 7 ( we didn't know there was because we slept through it. Well, the second round was scheduled to come at two or three o'clock but we really didn't think there would be one because the sun came out and it looked like a normal spring day. Again we were wrong. Around 2:15 the sky started getting dark-fast and the wind was blowing really hard. So my family (except dad) crammed into a closet because we don't have a basement. Right after we got in (I don't mine telling y'all that I was really freaking out) it started hailing outside and then there was a huge crash of thunder. Thankfully we did not have a tornado around our house we think it was just
straight winds. Mama went to look out of the closet and then came back in and told us there was a tree laying on our deck and she didn't want us to come out because she thought it might fall through the roof. Well, our neighbor came over and checked on us because he knew that the tree had hit the house . That big sound of thunder we think must have been the tree falling. We are so thankful to God that no one got hurt in our family. Daddy came home right after that and everyone felt a lot better. We thought that the tornadoes were over. At that time we still had power so we looked on the computer and our weather man said we still had one more round. So at about 8:00 we headed to the closet again but it only hailed and was very windy on our side of town the southern part of town was not like that it had at least 2 tornadoes touch down where my grandmas house was destroyed. Please pray for my grandma on my mothers side. Her whole house was lifted from her foundation and thrown on its side. Thankfully she was not there (my aunt came to get her just a hour before)but her whole house is gone. She had been renting the house for many years and lost all of her belongings. On Friday mid afternoon the power came back on and some people from local churches helped us clear away the tree. Today Habitat for Humanity came to help us. The pictures below are of the tree that uprooted in our neighbors backyard.

Also pray for the family with 13 children who lost a husband and dad because of the tornado in Alabama. You can read the story HERE. As far as I know 9 people have died in our town.

Please pray for the areas that were affected by these storms in Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee.
