Hi everyone! We are still alive and I am going to do everything I can to get a blog post up by this weekend. In the meantime, we are busy with school, making soap, brewing tea, reading, music, being with friends, trying to escape the heat :-), and making lip balm. Our home has been kind of messy lately because of all the projects-soap, sewing skirts, cooking, laundry, school, herbs for tea and infusions, books (I forever have a stack-or two-of books, papers, and magazines that I am reading), an old beat up chair that Haley salvaged from a trash pile(she is going to refinish it), and of course sticks. :-) Silas and Logan have really been into their sticks lately. Haley is looking into learning how to make pottery with a wheel and clay. Logan is researching dogs as he hopes to get one in the next year or two. He would like to breed, train, and sell them. In all of it, my desire remains and calls to my hearts to love and serve Jesus with all my being. So many moments I lose my focus, the focus of my heart. I won't give up though! I do fail daily in a small or large way, but He is always there to forgive and walk with me. He knows we are but sheep....He sees our hearts, wanting with everything that is in us, to please Him. Be blessed my friends and love, pursue hard, the Lover of our souls. He deserves our very lives.
