Welcome....Here's a glimpse of our happenings!

The verses that have REALLY spoken to me (Sarah) lately....

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. I Peter 5:8-9

From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' Acts 17:26-28

May the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14

So be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess. Deuteronomy 5:32-33

God, our God, will take care of the hidden things but the revealed things are our business. It's up to us and our children to attend to all the terms in this Revelation. Deuteronomy 29:29 (The Message)

All the Creatures of the Earth....

And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures, and let BIRDS fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky." So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged BIRD according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the BIRDS increase on the earth." Genesis 1:20-22

Believe it or not, I really don't have too much to blog about. However, the other day (Saturday), I did capture a couple of photos that I deem worth sharing.

We live fairly close to a creek (Slate Creek for all of you locals). On Saturday, I was in the kitchen, preparing some food because my family was coming over in the evening. All of a sudden, Marc said, "Get the camera. There are some wild turkeys in the yard. They're from near the creek."

So, I did grab the camera. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get them photographed in our yard -- only walking toward our neighbors' yard and actually in our neighbors' yard.

But, how interesting is that to get five wild turkeys walking through our yard here in town?

If you look closely at this pic, you can see the turkeys through the trees. This is right after they left our yard, heading toward our neighbors' yard.

This pic shows them in our neighbors' yard. About an hour after this photo was taken, Luke and I were out walking. One of them flew over me. I didn't even realize they could fly.

And (please don't read this if you're an animal lover), Marc had actually seen these wild turkeys near our yard before they crossed our yard. He immediately went and grabbed his BB gun. There he was, on our deck, shooting at the wild turkeys. He did hit both of them. NO, they were not hurt at all. In fact, Marc said they were hardly even phased a bit.

I'm not sure exactly where in Newton you and Marc live, but we too have wild turkeys who like to strut around our yard from the empty pasture next door to our neighbors. Caden thinks they're funny. Being a city girl through and through I think it's weird to see wild animals in my front yard and Doug likes to use his turkey call to frustrate and annoy the poor birds. The first time we saw them, Doug asked if I thought he'd get caught if he shot at them (with his shot gun though, not a BB gun!). I said yes, so he downgraded to jsut harrassing them with the turkey call. Very funny! The male gets all protective and mad and the females look around all sly and coy.
