Favorite Bible Verse Tag

howdy cowpokes! My friend Alice from www.mygoldenjourneyblog.blogspot.com tagged me. I'm supposed to tell ya what my favorite Bible verse is. ANNND...... that is very hard for me, cause there is hundreds of great verses in the Bible. But I guess one of them is:

                                                 Hebrews 13:2

 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.


like I said, I have quite a few favorites.

Well I really best go. seeya!

Being Thankful

Howdy people.

So I guess lately I've been thinking quite a lot about how spoiled we are here in America, and I know most all of us aren't close to deserving any of it. especially not me. I complain about most everything. sometimes out loud, but mostly inside. like "aw man, I forgot my water glass and now I have to get up and squeeze  through the wall and Dads chair to go get it." or "Do we really have to go out and do chores again?" In the great depression, people longed for chickens and cows to take care of.

just the other day I heard: "What? its gonna be a WEEK before my amazon package comes??? I need it tomorrow!" back in the 1800's, (depending on how far away) I bet most of the people were rejoicing that something would come through the pony express that soon.

have you thanked God for your eyesight today? how bout your sense of touch. I know I haven't.

You know, I REALLY  don't like school. to me its torcher. but we really outta be more glad that we even get education. it would slow you way up in life if you didn't have much.  didga thank God for that yet today?



it seems everywere I look here is spoiledness. All we can eat for food, cushions on our chairs so it don't make our backside sore, all kinds of entertainment to keep us busy such as television, (eccept we try not  to do that so much) games, art, and plenty other stuffs.... and more food. ( which I happen to adore quite a lot)


                                what I meant for this post to do for you is..........


                   be more thankful.
            


                                                       




Here is a picture of my hansome ( man looketh at the outward appearance, But Jesus looks at the heart)  little brother during school this morning.

Puzzles, Woodburning and CATAN


 HOWDY!

This winter, dad has found some ways to spend time with us when he is not fixing a broken baler or tractor. He couldn't possibly be a better father!!!!!


here's some pictures:




Landon, Lawson and me were so excited when Catan finally came!






Playing Catan ALL the time..... I fear we will get board (get it?) of it and never want to play it for a long while.






Dad has been putting together puzzles with me and Lawson.....









Dad bought me an awesome new woodburner cause I was using our old junky one..... I feel SPOILED. 
And the boards are just from are old windbreaks out in the corral :D Isn't that awesome??

// Cold Weather //


I know I'm a day late. but that's ok, right? I just forgot yesterday. :I

do you miss the nice weather? I SURE DO! Sometimes I get so tired of the -40 degrees (Seriously. I'm not exaggerating. its what the weather gets to be in the winter here.) I start to complain.

This is a conversation we had while putting layers and layers of snow stuff on:

"Its SO cold out! look at the frostbite on my cheek!"
 Then Lawson (7 years) whipped out a saying. "'As a rule man's a fool. When its hot he wants it cool, when its cool he wants it hot,  always wanting what its not.'" Such a smart kid! I don't think any of us have complained 'bout the weather since then!

Mr. Orange

Beef Butchering

The past two weeks we've been selling beef to people. We butcher it, hang it in the cooler, then cut it up, grind and package. sometimes I help grind the beef, and sometimes I cut the fat off and stuff with a fancy butcher knife. One time we processed 4 beef in one day.


Back to the daily 'grind'. ;D
