This past weekend we were blessed to have some friends come to Putnam! We had a wonderful and fun time!

Beautiful family

This was their favorite place to hang out. 
Amazing eyes!

She had a lot of fun with the leaves

Every time she would catch the ball she would laugh

I LOVE this photo of my parents.


My beautiful friend Vanessa and I.
As soon as she saw me holding my camera she ran over and smiled. :)

Excerpt from Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon

"For my strength is made perfect in weakness" ( 2 Corinthians 12:9 )

 A primary qualification for serving God with any amount of success is a sense of our own weakness. When God's warrior marches forth to battle boasting, "I know that I will conquer; my own right arm and my conquering sword will get me the victory," then defeat is not far away. God will not go forth with that man. He who reckons on victory in this way has reckoned wrongly, for "it is not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the Lord of hosts" (Zechariah 4:6). They who go forth to fight, boasting of their prowess will return with their banners trailing in the dust and their armor stained with disgrace. Those who serve God must serve Him in His way and in His strength, or He will never accept their service. He casts away the mere fruits of the earth. He will only reap that seed sown from heaven, watered by grace, and ripened by the sun of divine love. God will empty out all that you have before He will put His own into you. The river of God is full of water,  but not one drop of it flows from earthly springs. God will have no strength used in His battles but the strength which He Himself imparts. Are you mourning over your own weakness? Take courage, for there must be a consciousness of weakness before the Lord will give you victory. Your emptiness is but the preparation for your being filled, and your casting down is but the making ready for your lifting up.

My oh my! I slepted in my curlers, then I fixed my hair for the history timeline event. After getting home I brushed out the curls....and this is what my hair looks like!! I did not use any products to get my hair this poofy! :D


Living History Timeline. It was awesome. So many people from different time periods. So much fun to dress up and portray a person from history.




The person I portrayed was Irena Sendler. She was a Polish social worker during WW2 who saved 2,500 Jewish children out of the Warsaw ghetto.
Having fun with the camera.


Friends

Queen Esther

My friend was portraying Corrie Ten Boom when she was older. I was on crutches because my character (Irena Sendler) was tortured in prison and they broke her legs and feet and she never walked without crutches ever again.

A dear friend of ours. We pick her up every Sunday to go to church with us.
 Here are a few photos of some of the characters people portrayed.....
Maria Antoinette

My six year old little friend wanted to take a photo. The young man in the background was portraying Oscar Micheaux.

Harriet Tubman

Dietrich Bonhoeffer



Fanny Hayes




( This beautiful little girl was born with no arms, one leg, and no jaw. But she is the happiest little girl)



Mary Elisabeth Bowser




We had about 30 kids who participated in the program. It was wonderful evening!

Good friends are like stars....

My best friends-sisters. We have known each other since we were little. Holly and Laura are actually "real" sisters. I'm the oldest (19), Holly comes next (18), and last but not least Laura (16). But in height I'm the shortest, then Laura is next and then Holly is the tallest. It looks like in the last picture that Laura is shorter than me but Laura was slouching (tsk tsk, Laura). I'm the runt of the litter. :)
Holly is the photographer (her blog), Laura is the artist-fashion designer (her blog), and I'm the musician-vintage fashion girl.
Our "quote" we like is: "Good friends are like stars...You don't always see them., but you always know they are there"
We love to go shopping, traveling, eating at Panera Bread, going on walks, looking at the stars ^^, eating at McDonalds, pile up on a couch and just talk.

I thank God that HE has blessed me with such true, faithful, fabulous friends. I love you girls like crazy! <3>
