A Quiet Sort of Busy

Wow, You all are probably wondering what happened to me… My internet was disconnected Monday due to the fac the computer had to be moved for The Brethren to be able to record some songs Monday night…So I am now back online and updating on the past week and a half….

Since I mentioned The Brethren getting together, I will start there…You might remember last September I posted about them getting together for the first time since we got married…Well, they got together again on Monday night to sing before one member heads off to school next week. There was still only seven of the eight present. Jason is back in Nicaragua and Mark is now home from Fair Play Boys Camp in SC…

Here are some pictures from my perspective…Four of us wives and our eight children stayed outside, while they recorded

What next… ‘Tis the season for harvesting…We have been busy working in our garden, plus having a corn day at the Hershey’s and a Green Bean Day at the Ebersole’s…

CORN DAY!!! I brought home 20 quarts….I thinks over 50 quarts were frozen, not to mention the cobs kept for fresh eating and the ones given away….

We were blessed with CUCUMBERS from our neighbors, so I found a recipe online to freeze them…This is what they looked like before I put them in containers in the freezer…I got five, three cup containers full…

And last but not least….An amazing praise to God…The day after Les’ family headed back to SC…My father-in-law, came over to bless us by mozing our lawn with his little tractor…. He had it on his pickup and had to wooden ramps to back it off the truck…They were in place and he started to process of backing it up, when everything went wrong, the ramps bent and the tractor came crashing down with him still in the seat…He was able to hold onto the steering wheel until I could get to him so the tractor didn’t crush him….In the picture he is in the process of turning the tractor so he could get it back on four wheels instead of the two it currently was on….We praise God he was not seriously hurt….

Look for God’s blessings in the hardest situations, they are always there….
