This and That

 Those red berry thingys with water drops.
So pretty!
 Another one of those red berry thingys.
I love how the background looks on this one.
It’s such a pretty color this time of year.
 This was right beside my head as I was taking some pictures.
The leaf is a leaf, but the dead caterpillar is gross!
So of course I had to get a picture.
 Very pretty red leaf on the ground.
 A pretty orange leaf.
 I made Shepherd’s Pie tonight for dinner
and 3 out of 5 liked it.
This was the first time I’ve ever made this.
Yum!
 Grace felt like painting a hardboiled egg.
 And she was proud of it! 🙂  
She ended up painting 2 of them, but dropped one and it cracked.
Since she painted with acrylics, she had to throw the egg away.
They both ended up being brown in the end.
 Grace’s Butterfly Feet painting.
She decided she wanted to fill hers in and make it wonderful.
 I made her do one for me the way I wanted it.
I think it’s so cute.
She decided to frame hers.  I’ll have to buy another 
frame for the other one. 🙂
(this was an idea from Pinterest-
I am not naturally very creative, so this site helps me)
Just had to throw in a chicken picture.
They’re hanging out in the field behind our property.
This was the corn field a couple weeks ago, but they mowed it.
The chickens enjoy scratching around back there, but I try
to discourage it as much as possible! 
It was quite a nice Monday.
School went well, 
kids were well behaved,
it was warmer than yesterday,
I saw the sun shine a few times today, 
(and almost didn’t know what it was)
God is certainly good!
Plugging on with the encouragement of Cindy to learn
Colossians 1:27-29
27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: 28 Whom we preachwarning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus: 29Whereunto I also labourstriving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.

My mind isn’t as good as retaining as it used to be, but
I’m thankful for Cindy’s persistence and determination.
We CAN memorize the book of Colossians in a year and
we’re almost a quarter of the way done! 🙂

One other thing I am super excited about and looking forward to
is Women of Faith this weekend!! Woo Hoo!
I’ve never gone to one of these events and I am looking forward
to the time of spiritual refreshment and nourishment.
It’ll be a nice break from the normal and 
the kids are thrilled to have a 3 day weekend.
Thank the Lord!
