Do You See What I See??

I see clouds in the sky and here thunder in the distance and I am so excited about it! I love when it rains, just makes it a whole new fresh world outside. And the Lord knows that we've been needing it! :) I must say that I have not been enjoying the 113 degree weather that we have been having. Too hot for me, but complaining about it won't make it any better, so I just need to get the fact in my head that we live in Arizona! :)
Can hardly wait till it gets here! :)

1 Corinthians 13

1. Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

2. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

3. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

4. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

5. Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

6. Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

7. Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

8. Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

9. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

10. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

11. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

12. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

13. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

I have people come up to me and say, "Boys are such a pain!" Well, boys aren't a pain unless you help to make them that way!  I have learned that if you let your own idea go, (even if it seems like it would work a lot better) and go along with what they are wanting to do at the moment, you can actually become really good friends! :) -speaking of my brothers. 
You would be surprised how much fun little boys can be! Hammering on your door in the morning, yelling, "Breakfast is  ready!" or dumping a cup of freezing water down your back just to see your response, racing at the table to see who can clean up their plate first, trying to scare the wits out of you while washing dishes - by sneeking up behind you and grabbing you and then scream at the same time, getting you to eat the rest of their casserole cause they are to full to eat any more and then eat a whole big piece of cake, always begging you to take them fishing, tell you that you are their favorite and that you are a lot of fun :), ask you to help make a fort out of old pallets - so you try your best and it doesn't turn out "too" bad, tell you to eat more carrots cause it makes you see better, and the list could just go on forever! I don't know what I would do without them, they are a part of my life that I would never want to cut out! :)

My brothers are full of humor and are a lot of fun! :)

Trip to Texas

Yes, I am back. I am sure that some of you were wondering what was going on with me not posting. Well, I have been posting on my family blog, so I decided there wasn't really the need to post the same pictures on both blogs. If you haven't already saw the pictures on my family blog you can go there by clicking this link There are some pictures that I didn't put on my families blog, and some that I have that I posted, so enjoy! :)

:: a sunrise in Texas::
 The setting of the sun always is a sign that you are coming to the end of another day. Have you ever thought back over the day that you have just lived and wondered if you did all you could to help make it a pleasant day for all who are around you? It is just a thought that came to my mind. Just to think that you can never live that day over again. It is only one chance in a life time, so you may as well live it as if it is your last! :) But the rising of the sun always tells us that a new day is at hand. Another day that God has allowed for us to live in. After the wonderful meetings at the camp in Texas, I don't know about you, but I know that I want to do all I can to please the One who created me. Nothing else matters! The Lord is helping me to find love in my heart for everyone. It is so hard for some of us to find love for one another, just because of the way that they treat us, or they don't live the same life as we do, or they might not do something quite the way we would do it..  It is easy for the Devil to be able to put such things in our mind, and then we tend to forget, that God loves them as much as He loves us. I am learning not to criticize others when you don't know what they have been through, or what they are going through. We may never know, so I found the simplest remedy for the problem. If you can find that unconditional love in your heart for them people, you find time to spend on your knees praying for them. God is a God of love and he will take care of every problem. Just leave it in His hands!!
We had an awesome time on our trip! Real true family time. We took our motor home, so we had our little home on wheels. :) It was a lot of fun. 

The motor home was a little squished at night, but we managed not to get on each others bad sides! ;)
My opinion of Texas?! Texas is very pretty in its own flat, green way! It was very hot though and the roads seem to stretch out across the land and just go no where. But it was ok! :)
Visiting with friends was one of the high lights of our trip. You never know how much you really miss them until you start on your long way home - taking you farther and farther away from them.
::good laughter::


"Laura I know that you will probably be one of the first people to be looking at this post, so just wanted to tell you that it was nice meeting you and I miss being with you! Can't wait till you guys come see us!"

I had a wonderful trip! The Lord blessed me and my family and I will never forget it! :)
