How I wish I could post a few pictures, but hopefully soon! :-) Now that I have Haley, Logan, and Silas' quilts all finished, I am ready to start ours. We have changed our minds a few times about what colors we want to make our quilt. For the past 8 years or so we have had a comforter on our bed that is tan, burgandy, and navy. We are going to go with something much brighter and cheerful this time. Our new quilt is going to be made out of different patterns and shades of green with white. I made a girl's baby quilt that was green and white and we just loved it. So, last week I bought my first of four fabrics. Fun!! We have the pattern picked out and once I collect the other three fabrics I am ready to start. Can't wait! ;-)

Fake names...

I just wanted you all to know that from here on I will be using our real first names on our blog. Sunshine is Haley, Vision is Logan, and Beloved is Silas. It has just been too confusing for me as I type. :-)

Yesterday I had something really heavy on my heart. It was the subject of children from godly homes, growing up and turning away. Oh how that breaks my heart and makes me want to despair. Quite honestly, I just about can't think of anything worse than our children rejecting the Lord. But yesterday I think the Lord wanted me to learn something and that is that I can't control any other person, not even our children. Our children have to choose the Lord for themselves. My job (with the Spirit's power) is to show them the Lord on a daily basis, teach them about the Lord, and pray, pray, pray. The Lord loves them and wants them to follow Him even more than we do. So, to a great extent, I must leave it in His hands. After wrestling through this yesterday, with my dear husband encouraging me with truth, I came to a rest and peace in Him. I CAN'T make my children godly so I don't have to be all stressed out trying. Anyhow, I don't know if any of this makes sense to anyone else, but those are my thoughts. :-) God bless you all today as you love the Lord, your husbands, children, and keep your home.
