Here I go, diving into the world of the weblog. I've thought about doing it for a while, and now that we've stepped into the 21st century and got DSL, it's a little more feasible. I'm hoping this will be a good way to help friends and family feel connected to what's going on in our family.
The title of my blog comes from Psalm 144. David prayed "Let our sons in their youth be as grown-up plants, And our daughters as corner pillars fashioned as for a palace; Let our garners be full, furnishing every kind of produce, And our flocks bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields; Let our cattle bear without mishap and without loss, Let there be no outcry in our streets! How blessed are the people who are so situated; How blessed are the people whose God is the LORD!"
We have been very richly blessed, especially with our three amazing boys. Our purpose and prayer for them is that they would be as plants grown up in their youth, producing fruit for the Lord at a young age. This is a huge part of why we homeschool and we're seeing the desired results already.
I hope this blog is a blessing to all who visit and I can't wait to see where it goes!
