"Like apples of gold in settings of silver
is a ruling rightly given.
Like an earring of gold or an ornament of fine gold
is the rebuke of a wise judge to a listening ear."

And because I didn't want to just post a picture of gloopy detergent :o) here is a picture of a wildflower that we took on one of our trips to check the trail cam. Psalm 29:2
"Give unto the LORD the glory due to His name;
Worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness."

This is the opening scene from the movie:
I would encourage everyone to check out any of the movies that Sherwood Pictures has made! It would be an awesome thing for Courageous to have a blockbuster weekend to send a message to the "Hollywood" industry that this is the type of movie that America needs and wants to see! So go support it!!!
"But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
(This is not a paid advertisement. :) I just support this ministry 100%!)

Still holding out for a picture of a bear! :)
1 Thessalonians 5:23
"Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."

"O Lord, forgive what I have been, sanctify what I am, and order what I shall be."

1 John 2:5
"But if anyone obeys His word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in Him:"
Both of our girls always request a homemade cake instead of a store/bakery bought one. For this birthday Anna wanted a chocolate cake, so I made one of those "better than anything" cakes with the devil's food cake, caramel, sweet cond. milk, cool-whip, crushed toffee bars. It was pretty yummy! Our sweet birthday girl! Suse, Ryan, Amber, & Bella came over and we ended up having a mini-party.
Sissy made her this sweet card and.....
"Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me."

Then fill the rest of the bucket up with hot tap water.
And stir some more!
Her instructions said to put the lid on the bucket and let it sit overnight. That it would be a little gooey and lumpy. You just need to stir it again and break up the clumps. I've been saving my ALL detergent bottles so I'm going to fill a bottle with about 1/4 water and then add the detergent mixture to it and shake away! I also got some fragrant oils to add to the individual bottles in case I want to make it smell a little better. I can't completely quit cold turkey with the scent thing. So in the next few days I'll add some pictures of my finished product and give a review of how well we like using this new and cheap laundry detergent!
"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms."
Anyway, I've been looking through pictures and I came across this one tonight:
2 Corinthians 6:18-19
"And, “I will be a Father to you,
and you will be my sons and daughters,
says the Lord Almighty.”

But we did manage to get a few good ones. :)
"Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it."
So right now it's a monkey that can see no, hear no, and speak no evil....hehe!
"LORD, who may abide in Your tabernacle?
Who may dwell in Your holy hill?
He who walks uprightly,
And works righteousness,
And speaks the truth in his heart;
He who does not backbite with his tongue,
Nor does evil to his neighbor,
Nor does he take up a reproach against his friend;"

Holly won a medal for the hoola hoop contest and she also got to enjoy a ride in a wheelbarrow!
It was a great day and the rain held off to make the weather near perfect! Now to get ready for a (kind of:) busy week!
1 John 1:7
"But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin."

"You have also given me the shield of Your salvation;
Your right hand has held me up,
Your gentleness has made me great."

Who knows what it'll be?!!
"Lest my enemy say,
“I have prevailed against him”;
Lest those who trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
But I have trusted in Your mercy;
My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.
I will sing to the LORD,
Because He has dealt bountifully with me."

This one for couples is a good one also!
"Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God."
"My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation,
In secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places,"

We checked Cranford out at the library last week and watched it tonight:
"Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
