Church, crawdads, swimming, Sundays are blessing from God.

We had a nice Sunday at Church.  Booboo's special friend was back and that really made her day.  They have made plans for after the fair which will be nice for Booboo to have some time to spend with her special person.  We had more people for the first hour which was nice.  Both messages, first and second hours, were nice messages and will give us food for our souls for the week.  The Lord is so wonderful that he can have an individual relationship with so many people, he gives us his living word, the Bible, that always has a newness and revealing messages to give us each time we go to it to communicate with him.  He sends us a Preacher to speak a message from his word and each person receives a message from God meant just for them.  I think that one of the most lasting thoughts from yesterdays message, not the only one, but the one that will surely last in my mind is the thought that for those who are called to the Lord the messages he sends open our hearts to his words and the message leads to our salvation.  Sadly, the same message also hardens the hearts of the those who don't hear his calling and they don't seek the Lord.  It is so sad to think that so many knowingly and purposely think they can live their life without God, and sadly when in a moment of sorrow or stress and they call out he will not be able to hear them as they weren't able to hear him when he called them.  I often wonder why in general, even lazy people, don't reach out to God.  The thought that if I am wrong, and God doesn't exist so I have wasted my life is in not in me, but how horrible it is to think of those, that if he does exist and they don't belief he exists, will have such a terrible revelation on the day after our deaths.  God will say per 

Matthew 7:21-23

King James Version (KJV)
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

We had a nice day with our Church family and happily I can say it is growing and that is wonderful. The Lord works in his time and life is ours at his will.

We came home had lunch, then chores were done.  We went to the river with Mokie and family.  We had a wonderful day of family time.  The kids swung on the rope and dropped into the depths of the cold water.  They rolled in the sand, they threw sand and had a grand time.  Mokie took Boy into the water and he cried like a girl.  Cubbie went in and tried to be brave and put her chin in the water but couldn't quite get her brave up that high.  Bubbles took a dip under the water and came up with her little smile intact.  She was soon cold with a purple tent and needed to sit on Nannie's lap with a blanket but she did it, she wasn't loud and scared as her brother was and was braver than her sister.  Mokie took Yogie out to the pillions, and Yogie got out in the current ahead of her, scared Nannie but Yogie did it all like the trooper she is.  Okay, so some days Nannie forgets how fast the time goes and how that only for a moment are they our little ones.  Yogie did wonderful and she was so proud.  Booboo waited until we were almost to go before she wanted to try so will have to wait until next time for her turn to go to the pillions.  The swimming soon lost it's great appeal and Son took the kids crawdading.  They didn't bring a bucket so only picked them for fun.  They picked large ones and Mokie held them so the kids could grab a hold where the crawdad couldn't pinch them.  They soon found some tiny ones and all of the kids held at least one before they put them back into the river.  Before long our time on the river came to an end. 

We returned home, Poppie weeded, the girls played with their cousins and later Yogie milked at the end of the day.  Yogie made cupcakes and I decorated them for her while she was milking so she could have a surprise treat to share with the family.  She is such a hard little worker, if it is her idea, she has such initiative and drive.  She has gone to doing all the morning animal chores all on her own.  Her dad is so proud of her, as am I, but when dad praises her for her efforts his seems to go farther and makes her so proud.  I am hoping I can get a drive started under Booboo, she will do her chores but hasn't gotten a drive for initiating pride in accomplishing something one her own.  It will come and if it doesn't she will have to do it as a chore and that will not be as joyous an accomplishment as her sister experiences.

I spent the evening making a couple of clothing orders online.  I am almost done shopping for school.  We still have to do a girlie day, probably on Yogie'
