The seasons of life....

Over the years our family has had it share of
ups and downs,
twists and turns,
ins and outs.
We have also experienced
unspeakable joy,
unconditional love,
immeasurable grace.

Through every season good and bad the Lord has been our guide,
He has remained our rock and shelter.
We are so unworthy of all He has done for us.

With 11 children who range in age from 20 yrs down to 13 months,
it places us in a season of joy and blessings on many levels.
Our days are full and I often look up and think,
WOW, time does pass much to quickly.

I have much to share,
and as time permits I will....
And so will the children who are now going to blog here.
Please, know when the blog is quiet that we are soaking in family time in a busy season of life.
Thank you to all who stop by and visit,
it means so much to us as do your comments.

To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:

A time to be born,
And a time to die;
A time to plant,
And a time to pluck what is planted;
A time to kill,
And a time to heal;
A time to break down,
And a time to build up;
A time to weep,
And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn,
And a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones,
And a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace,
And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to gain,
And a time to lose;
A time to keep,
And a time to throw away;
A time to tear,
And a time to sew;
A time to keep silence,
And a time to speak;
A time to love,
And a time to hate;
A time of war,
And a time of peace.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

I am with you on all counts. I've not blogged much lately for being more involved in family things. Busy times. It wasn't so very long ago I had 12 kids from 24 to newborn and my what's happened in those few short years. Two weddings, 5 grandkids (a daughter who had been married already for 2 years)! They grow so fast. And so much happens when there are so many people I am often asked if I could do it all over would I, and oh yes, without hesitation!

God is so, so, so to bless!9 dyFese
