Shall remember and turn to the LORD,
And all the families of the nations
Shall worship before You."

Afterwards we arrived late for Chris' cookout/birthday party. They still had some fun! 2 Samuel 22:50
"Therefore I will praise you, LORD, among the nations;
I will sing the praises of your name."

To round out our family fun night Brian and the girls got a treat at Chick-fil-A. I'm saving my milkshake money for a pedicure:D Haha - not really, I was just still full of bbq pork from Sonny's!
"For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,"

In totally unrelated news - this newest addition is about to be added to our town!!!
“Listen to this, Job;
stop and consider God’s wonders."
I am happy to report that this huge arachnid is no longer living in our front yard!
Looking forward to the next few days with our sweet friend that is also our precious sister!
"For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him."

“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."
"I sought the LORD, and He heard me,
And delivered me from all my fears.
They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces were not ashamed."

She also got a hit!!!
"Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus, that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ."
Anna went inside with me to order our food and I had her run a couple of hats for her and Holly and some of our food order out to the car while I waited on some more food. When she came back in I noticed her go over and get 2 more hats and I kind of giggled because I knew Brian was up to something.
Sure enough when we made it back out to the van, it was full of pirates! Brian made me put my hat on and then we preceded to drive through our town donning our LJS pirate hats! We figured if the food was gonna kill us after we ate it - then we'd go out with a bang! Haha!
I am happy to say that the food settled just fine that night and we survived the breaded fish, and the hushpuppies, and the cole slaw, and the crunchies - which I could almost eat for a meal by themselves! After our more positive venture to LJS - I am thinking we might not wait 2 years to go back. :0)
"There the ships sail about;
There is that Leviathan
Which You have made to play there.
These all wait for You,
That You may give them their food in due season.
What You give them they gather in;
You open Your hand, they are filled with good."

Out the bird flew! Then another one and then the other two. All four birds flew out of that nest so fast that I thought I was being attacked!!! They all flew in different directions and about the time I got my berrings straight - here comes the Mama and the Papa! Directly at my head!!! I ran back under our carport and watched to see if I could see the babies. But all I could pay attention to was the VERY angry Mama & Papa flying back and forth in front of the nest! They were making noises that I've never even heard before! A little while later I walked back outside with Anna (she stayed under the carport) and I walked behind Brian's Jeep to see if I could see any of the baby birds and I am not exaggerating - one of the parent birds flew within a few inches of my head! Anna and I were running for the door - laughing all the way!
Please go VOTE!!!
"Then God said, “Let the waters swarm with fish and other life. Let the skies be filled with birds of every kind.”

Last night there was a toad on our carport and as I was trying to snap a picture and I caught him in action! I have never seen so many toads and frogs before. I guess it's from the wet spring we've had. I am beginning to feel like the Egyptians with that frog plague!
And tonight after church we took Brian a treat while he was working and as we were leaving a family of geese was crossing the road. The mama and 3 little ones went first and then the daddy with 1 baby, then they all just were waiting beside the road and then we saw another baby come flying across. It was the cutest thing ever!
It was almost like he was saying - "Wait for me!"
Hope you've had a wonderful weekend and I also hope you have an excellent week!!!
"For the Lord your God is living among you.
He is a mighty savior.
He will take delight in you with gladness.
With his love, he will calm all your fears.
He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”

Here was our gift for Sarah. We always like to give the necessities :) And instead of buying a gift bag, I buy a small laundry basket!
Many many blessings to them!!!
