"Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the LORD is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations."

We went up to fill Granny's cooler with corn so she could feed their ducks.
One really nice afternoon we loaded up the bikes and went to a walking trail in town.
We attended a county fiscal court meeting. Uncle Larry (Poppy's twin brother) is the one on the right side in the pink shirt. Papaw got to come home today!!! He broke his hip on August 3rd and has been in the hospital, Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation, & a health care center since then. He was more than ready to be back home!!! The girls and I made some posters and we hung up some balloons to surprise him! :)
"Sing praise to the LORD, you saints of His,
And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name."
"Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband."

Last Tuesday Brian thought of the idea of doing a biggest loser for our family. So we separated into teams with Anna and me on one team (since we had kind of already started) and Brian and Holly on the other. The goal is to see which team can lose the most percentage body fat by April 1st, 2012. The winners will receive some $$moolah$$ :) We had our first weigh in last night and Anna won for the week! We've just been eating healhier and trying to get back into the habit of eating better foods.
Here is my progress and widget from the site:
1 Corinthians 6:19
"Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?"

Our city gets it's water from a lake reservoir that is pumped into another spring fed reservoir, that eventually ends up at the treatment plant. The picture I took from the first room/stage it comes into had some kiddos from our co-op in it and I didn't want to post without permission. But just imagine a room with two HUGE tanks :)
At that step they add chlorine and some other chemicals to the water to make the organics all clump (technical term: coagulate:) together. The above ^ picture is what the water looks like with all of the "organics" rising to the top. The organics included leaves, dirt, fish particles, etc. Swimming is not allowed in the reservoirs and there are no streams leading into it, so it is truly clean(ish) water when it gets to the treatment plant.
The History of Creation
"1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.
5 God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.
6 Then God said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.”
7 Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so.
8 And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.
9 Then God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so.
10 And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good."
