Lookie here.

I cut my hair this past week, in an effort to minimise the things I have to take care of.


What do you think?





This was on the day it was done.


I took the picture in my bathroom.








With my phone.

What do you know?

There are some crazy things to be learned. If you could really put your mind to it, I am sure you could think of many. Let's think basic.
Learn to walk and talk. Wanna get more complex?
Learn to cut hair, play guitar, sew.

How bout this? Learn to love God?

Do we need to be taught to do so? I think so. The Bible says we are not lovers of God, but we love our selves! Selfish, and even haters of Him. We want to go our own way, do our own thing.

I see the example in my children. Children seem to be a great picture of a relationship with God. You don't have to teach children to be selfish, demanding or self centered. Same with the children of God. We have to be taught to love Him, to submit to Him and go His way with our life.

As a child of His I want to please Him. He is the creator of our world, He is worthy. He is my salvation!

But my selfishness gets in the way.

I need to learn more about Him, to love Him for who He is, for what He has done for me.
For the grace He gives.

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound.
That saved a Wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I am found
Was blind but now I see.

I am the wretch, I need to learn.
Faith like a child.
That's what I know, how about you?

I had a great birthday. Plain as that.


A good Friend of mine text me first thing to tell me happy birthday. Later on that day I received some flowers from her via FED EX!!!! OVERNIGHT!

They are so nice. So fresh!

Look....



The greatest thing about these is that she had it figured out all along.
Then after the kids all took a nap at the same time, I watched a movie all by myself!! The rest of the evening was very low key. I think I had to run and get dog food or something. Seriously, a nice rest full evening. Steve was even there!
OK, so that was Thursday. Friday we went to TUCSON!! We camped out on CJ's front porch! We even brought the dogs and the trailer.
There were many other things that happened, cards read and loved, and the fellowship in Tuscon was great. It brings me great joy that I am so loved.
Which leaves me staggering, staring, and gasping.
Thank you all so much.
On a smaller note:
I planned on documenting the whole trip to Tuscon with my camera. Wanna know how many pictures I took?
None.

I think this was the morning she ate a bag of chocolate.



Yup.


Then Ian and I had fun taking pictures of the hair cut he gave himself.







See how short it is?
Posing with brother will fix everything!






Then with me.......




Then brother, alone


Notice the tired confusion. Poor thing!

So yeah, I made butter.

I whipped some heavy raw cream and at this point in the video, it just clicked. I mean clabbered, I mean churned into butter.

Its nice. Its raw. No one likes it but me.

Too bad for them!
