Blessings of Those Who Fear the LORD

(Psa 128 NRSV) “Happy is everyone who fears the LORD, who walks in his ways. {2} You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be happy, and it shall go well with you. {3} Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. {4} Thus shall the man be blessed who fears the LORD. {5} The LORD bless you from Zion. May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life. {6} May you see your children’s children. Peace be upon Israel!”

Titus’ Friends

Just thought I would show off some of Titus’ interactions over the past week or so.

Titus 014a First is Titus and Cousin Lucas Hoffman with Aunt Ashleigh

Titus 019a Second is Titus with his two buddies Isaac and Jesse.

Titus 031a Last is cousin Kyla sharing some big dominos with him.

It is so much fun to see little children interact with each other. I am anxious for Titus’ two new cousins to arrive and get a little bigger so they can have some good times playing together.  That’ll be a while, so I guess I can just sit and enjoy him now, even if the extent of his interaction if drooling and smiling. I still love it, plus he even becomes more talkitive because of it. YEAH…..

Misc 009a Misc 008a Misc 007a

This is the veiw from my front porch. The first is our neighbors picnic bench. The water is parrell to our swingset in our neighbors yard. But our road is closed, due to rushing water on both sides of the bridge. The sound outside is awesome, the power and force of the water almost sounds like we live next to a highway. Makes me wonder about how the kids faired getting to school this morning. I just have to marvel at God’s amazing creation, water can be a good think most of the time (like fire) but occasionally it becomes a bad thing. Though call me weird I don’t think this is bad I actually think it’s beautiful. (ask me that when I see how much our yard need to be cleaned up!)

Now for the update I was going to do before I got tagged (again thanks daniel)


Titus 004a My Mighty Little Man can now sit up all by himself and he thinks its the greatest. That is until he rediscovers his feet then in more like him laying on his belly with his feet in front of him.

Titus 008b We also went out this afternoon (since it was warm) and enjoyed some time swinging.

Titus 007a He just loved it. Between the breeze and the motion of swinging his hood kept falling down but he didn’t seem to mind. He enjoyed laughing, talking and smiling.

It’s moments like this when it is very fun and rewarding to be a mom.

Okay Daniel-

So I guess this means I need to share 7 silly things about me!?!?!


1-I love everything about cows (both beef and dairy), my favorite is grooming them and taking them for walks though.

2- My family nickname is GRACE. See I am anything but and it usually shows. (ie-wakling into poles, falling down steps, tripping over carpet, etc.)

3- I say Crick instead of Creek.

4- I say Wooder instead of Water.

5-I have ocassional moments where I just need to do something completely random, like bolt outside swing on the swings for a mintue then come in and act like I did nothing out of the ordinary.

6-I don’t name my cars.

7-I love to name animals, naming babies is definately harder.

So this means I get to tag people, Yeah, I tag Godisdoingsomething, Bernt_ice, pert1plus, madquackersmoo, and CKM_1985.
