Saturdays are for… || a Random Post! :)

“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; He also is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.”
Isaiah 12:2-3

Isaiah 12:2-3 have been my verses of the week! :) It’s true! The Lord Jehovah is my strength & my song and He has become my salvation! I am reminded in Ephesians 2:12 that when we were without Christ we were without hope {“Having no hope”} BUT He does not leave us hopeless! Ephesians 2:14 is one of my favorites, “For He is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us” :) What joy we have in Christ and what abundant mercies He pours upon us! “Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.” Isaiah 55:12 quickly comes to mind “For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace“. He is our source of joy & peace and each new day is a day to bless His holy name! (: “Glory ye in His holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.” Psalm 105:33

Housecleaning, rock skipping, picnicking, & cupcake baking. That’s what Saturdays are for! ;) Saturday mornings at our house are spent mopping floors, cleaning out the refrigerator, and whatever else finds its way into the cleaning realm. :) I put an apron on first thing this morning and didn’t take it off until dinner…. Not a bad way to spend a day if you ask me!! ;) The afternoon came along and the little people talked me into taking them on a walk to the river. We just happened to arrive in time for rather large group of people who were slowly making their way to San Antonio on horseback! :) It was really a lovely day and here I am! The house is quiet{perhaps too quiet?!}, I have yet to feel tired{I’m a night-owl}, and I have too many pictures from today that need to be edited and posted!  So, how about a random post with a few too many pictures?  :) As busy as this last week has been, God has demonstrated{once again!} His abundant mercy and grace, giving strength for each new day, and faithfully leading us every step of the way!

Oh!! Exciting news of the week is Micah learned how to use the espresso machine. :D She makes a superb Caramel Latte! Bravo Micah ;) As always, hover for description.

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

    1. Thank you, Hannah! There is quite a bit of craziness that goes on behind the scenes. ;) Occasional tears, messy kitchens, bad hair days, late-night or all-nighters working, failed baked goods, testings/trials, ect. But God’s mercy is abundant and grace sufficient! :) We are a work in progress, praise the Lord! (:
