Looks like our daughters are having a fun weekend together. Love those girls!

To the Island and Back

It was a beautiful day for a drive to drop off our youngest. With a stop for lunch in Silverdale. And coffee at the Storyville Roasting Studio on Bainbridge Island.

Glad our daughters can spend time together this weekend.

And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. Colossians 3:14 ESV

Ready to Intern

We like to celebrate milestones and recognize hard work. Our son's girlfriend is done with coursework for her OTA (Occupational Therapy Assistant) program. Two quarters of interning to go!

So proud of her!

Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, Colossians 3:12 ESV

Please Pass the Egg

We had an assembly line going around the table. Fill with a sticker, a verse, and as much candy will fit in an egg. Pass it on.

Just doing our part for the Easter celebration at Harbor Church.

Not pictured: The men on the other side of the room and our daughter, the photographer.

He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Matthew 28:6 ESV

Those School Projects

Remember when the whole family got involved? Those school projects were all hands on deck. My motto then: All's well that ends well.

Pictured: I found this photo of our son's chili pepper tree. With hand-sewn peppers, one for each classmate.

Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. Romans 12:16 ESV

Birthday Joy

Happy birthday to my cousin! I found this photo from when my cousins came to celebrate our daughter's first birthday. Now these kids are grown up.

Who would have thought that 26 years later my cousins, my husband, and our son would work together at Timberdoodle Co? Good times. Then and now.

Pictured: Younger version of my husband, younger son, older daughter, and two of my cousins.

Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength! Psalm 96:7 ESV

Go Explore

When the weather is good, get out and explore! That's our daughter's philosophy. Glad she has a friend who enjoys exploring too.

Pictured: A boat launch in the area, with a view of the mountain in the distance. With some random explorers near the water.

In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also. Psalm 95:4 ESV

Positive Relationships

Here's another picture from last week when my husband and our daughter spent the day together. I remember how much I enjoyed spending time with my dad when I was a teenager. You can't put a price on positive relationships.

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8 ESV

On the News

I will have to catch up on the news later. At least she is not shredding my newspaper.

Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! Psalm 37:7 ESV

Gracious Hostess

My friend is a gracious hostess for our Life Group. I like the extra details. Notice the candles and flowers on the tables? I want to be more like Lois.

Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality. Romans 12:13 ESV

Once a Month Tradition

We know what to expect. There will be tasty snacks and appetizers. Good conversation. And inspirational, moving testimonies on the Dispatches from the Front DVD. Love our once a month tradition at Life Group.

Pictured: Some of the women at tonight's Life Group.

Of David. The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1 ESV

Throw a Towel Over It

Some days I have a plan early in the day. Or I throw dinner together at the last moment.

Another variation, make pizza dough five minutes before leaving the house in the morning. Barely knead it and throw a towel over the bowl. Works for thin crust pizza for the family for dinner.

She is like the ships of the merchant; she brings her food from afar. Proverbs 31:14 ESV

Snowshoe Family Love

We didn't have snow here this weekend. But my husband, two of our kids, and our daughter's boyfriend found plenty on Hurricane Ridge. Perfect for snowshoeing.

O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! Psalm 8:9 ESV

Spiritual Gifts Sermons

It doesn't matter how long I've been a Christian or how many sermons I've heard. There is always something new to learn! I'm enjoying the current series on Spiritual Gifts at church.

You can listen to the recorded sermons online at Harbor Church Olympia resources page.

Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Romans 12:11-12 ESV
