To God Be the Glory!

Great things He has done, so loved He the world that he gave us His son...

Who yielded His life an atonement for sin, that opened the life gate that all may go in...

Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Let the Earth hear His voice,
Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Let the people rejoice,
Oh come to the Father through Jesus the Son, and give Him the glory great things he has done!

The Great Chicken Coop Massacre...

...of 2010.

I woke up Friday morning and looked out the kitchen window, I noticed our beautiful, sweet tempered black hen, Pet, was lying on the ground 'resting', or so I thought, later, Grace come running in and says, "Clooney(our Leghorn rooster), and Pet are dead and we lost a guinea!" I ran out there and sure enough, they where...well,...mangled. I'll spare you the details. So I put on the rubber gloves, got a shovel, and headed out there to 'dispose' of the temporarily. Daddy came home and said it was a weasel. He put gravel and more chicken wire in some places that where big enough for a weasel to get through. Earlier last year, a coy dog got 2 of our guineas, and 2 chickens, and the morning after that accident, Margaret had died of shock. (Seriously she did). So our poultry count was 1 rooster, 4 hens, and 5 guineas...until this 2 day massacre. This morning, we heard all this racket coming from the coop, so we went out side and 2 out our 3 hens that were left from yesterday's killing, where dead also! So know, because of a weasel, we're left with one, white leghorn layer. So goes the story of farm life...

On a lighter note, We're coming really close to house-breaking Ellie Evangeline. (Yes, we decided to give her a shorter name:)) She's doing wonderful.

Look What Was Waiting For Me Last Night...

Momma called me down from my sisters room where we were practicing a song, she said, "I need you to come fix the drinks for supper!" This is normally my job at night, so I ran down stairs, Daddy was home, so I greeted Him, then started fixing drinks. I noticed that everyone was in the front part of the house, near the Piano Room, I turned the corner, and...

There she was! My very own Border Collie pup, she's my early 16th birthday present. Her name is: Lily Evangeline Beccan. I call here Eline for short. The Lily part is her mother's name, and the Beccan part is the Irish form of Rebecca, the sweet lady who bred her and let us get her. Evangeline means, bearer of good news, and Eline means beautiful. Thanks Daddy and Momma!

Count the Many Blessings...

...of spring!
" There shall be showers of blessing: This is the promise of love...

There shall be seasons refreshing...

Sent from the Savior above...

Showers of blessing, showers of blessing we need...

Mercy drops 'round us are falling...

But for the showers we plead...

" I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing." Ezekiel 34:26

Should Prayer Even Be in School? Part 1

(View Down Our Drive-Way After Snow)

The turn of the nineteenth century brought many new changes to The United States. A government had been formed, the Constitution had been ratified, the first president was elected, but most importantly, we were a nation. One nation under God. The Founding Fathers understood this and they were Christians. While much has been written and revised concerning the faith of the Founding Fathers, the facts still remain. Clearly, there was prevalent Christian consensus in their thinking. Evidence of this strong Biblical world-view is seen in numerous quotes, letters, speeches, advice, and even in our own Constitution. However, we as Americans are losing sight of these facts in our history. One example of the Founding Father's beliefs is in a circulatory letter addressed to the Governors of all the states, George Washington wrote what would become known as his “Earnest Prayer”: “I now make it my earnest prayer that God would have you, and the State over which you preside, in His holy protection;...” George Washington recognized that God was the matchless protector. He goes on to say that, “he would incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government, to entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another, for their fellow-citizens of the United States at large, and particularly for brethren who have served in the field; and finally that He would most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind, which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without an humble imitation of whose example in these things, we can never hope to be a happy nation.”1
However, George Washington was not the only Founding Father who held a strong
faith in the Almighty. Patrick Henry, the well known former Governor of Virginia stated that,
“It cannot be emphasized too clearly and too often that this nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religion, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ,”2
Where did the solid, biblical, leadership of our country go? Did it leave with our nation's founders?

O Seyè ! Ka ou gade nou, pa bon pou pwan vòl la ?

Oh Lord! Can you see our suffering?

" God is our refuge and strength, a helper who is always found in times of trouble...

...Therefore we will not be afraid, though the earth trembles and the mountains topple into the depths of the sea...

...and the mountains quake with its turmoil...God reigns over the nations; God is seated on His holy throne..."

"God, the Lord God speaks; He summons the earth from east to west. From Zion, the perfection of beauty, God appears in radiance. Our God is coming; He will not be silent!"
