Starting a new season of quotes

Since I have been quite unpredictable with when I wrote in this blog, I have decided to try something different. I would like to try to post quotes or small photos or books that I am enjoying or dwelling on. Perhaps they'll be from Little Women, Anne Shirley, or maybe even Jane Austen's myriad collection. Hmm. I know I have a lot of fulfilling thoughts or favorite quotes mentioned in scripture, and I will hope to mentioned them as well.

I will start today off with a funny one from L.M Montgomery, in Anne of Windy Poplars.


"'But I love children, Rebecca.'
"Children, yes, but them's holy terrors, Miss Shirley. Mrs. Raymond doesn't believe in punishing children no matter what they do. She says she's determined they'll have a "natural" life. They take people in by that saintly look of theirs, but I've heard what her neighbors say of them. The minister's wife called one afternoon... Well, Mrs Raymond was sweet as sugar pie to her, but when she was leaving a shower of Spanish onions came flying down the stairs and one of them knocked her hat off.

"Children always behave so abominably when you 'specially want them to be good," was all Mrs. Raymond said... 

Kinder as if she was rather proud of them being so unmanageable. They're from the States, you know' ... As if they explained everything. Rebecca has about as much use for 'Yankees' as Mrs. Lynde has."

What it feels like to parent on a daily basis, completely exhausted.  Yet, still determined to get through the day. 

Hope you get a kick out of this as much as I did. :) Laughing out loud over here.

Celebrating 8 years | Marriage

Tim and I were blessed with a lovely weekend away on the North Shore, back to where it all began. Here is a photo from one of our days up there. We hiked at Tettegouche State Park, and couldn't have asked for better weather or fall colors!


Waiting on this place, Praising our KING

Well, rumor's are true: Tim and I are buying a home. We found just the right place for our needs and wants, and are now waiting to close on the property in the next couple of weeks. So, it is not finalized yet, and it is not OURS yet... but we are trusting in God for this to come through if that is His will for our family.

Guys, this place is SO great and really what we dream of. It's a foreclosure, and needs quite a bit of work, but is a newer home and we can't wait to get our Tim's hands dirty. :) He has some excellent strength, motivation, and skills. We're grateful for the community we have up here and around within family and friends that are willing to help us make this house a home. We'll be putting in flooring, cabinets and appliances as soon as we can after closing on the home. We may be living in a disheveled place for a little while, but are very much looking forward to putting these tough times on the memory block as "the way it used to be.&qu…
