4 my MUM…

“Better is one day in your courts
  than a thousand elsewhere;
 I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
 than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
 For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
 the LORD bestows favor and honor;
 no good thing does he withhold 
from those whose walk is blameless.”
Psalm 84:10-11
My Mom has…

been pregnant for a total of 9.75 years
(this is not counting the many times she has gone a full month past her due date)

Gone through kindergarten 8 times, High school 5 times and will go through a total of 13 times if blessed to home school each of her children to their graduation!
(This is counting her own personal schooling)

Changed a countless number of diapers, matched many pair of socks, done lots of loads of laundry( at least 1440 loads a year to be approximate)
AND YES, the list could go on an on…


To show our thanks in a tiny way, we all spent our day at the  nursery and helped her pick out plants for our yard!
Highlights of the day:
With a full cart we headed home to enjoy these:

“My son, keep your father’s command, and do not forsake the law of your mother. Bind them continually upon your heart; tie them around your neck. When you roam, they will lead you;
      When you sleep, they will keep you;
      And when you awake, they will speak with you.” 
Proverbs 6:19-22

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20
