We have a newly adopted doggy. He is truly the Gentle Giant, perhaps we could even call him Gentle Ben? Usually "Buddy" is the first thing to come to our lips though...This recent big baby is here at the Forest Cathedral and is just precious.
This day Jem and I went on an adventure and on returning I captured these following shots.
If you read about Mo-Mo in the last entry, we have been praying over her, and Mar has had quite a few runs to the vet with her. Even Dr. Hester was a bit puzzled over our very, very sick, but still sweet kitty. Thank God she seems to be back to herself after several very touch and go weeks. ...Just in case anyone is wondering how she is these days. We love our pets.
I feel now would be a good time to thank the pastor from India, the young homeschool mom who had messaged me a while back, and the anonymous commenter who replied favorably to one of my comments on another blog, (even though a meanie-boots erased it) it was auto messaged to me. What a precious lot and Godsend you all are. Usually at various times of discouragement in blogging, a tiny Remnant of Saints will message me or comment and are truly the typing fingers of the Father. We serve such a personal God, He knows our hearts and sure knows how to show that He does...I am in major awe at times.
It's all for an Audience of One and my Family here is also so wonderful on verbal encouragements as well.
Meet our most precious gentle-giant fur-angel...Buddy. He is actually in front of me on a concrete table outside one most enchanted eve after Jem and I took a drive...He just hopped up on top of the table! He thinks he is little. But we don't mind..
Jem and I arrived from our day-adventure and these family shots ensued..
Dad, (Jem) quickly gives his wisdom to life's questions...Buddy at his side so glad to see Jem.
Our feather angels, Jem and two of our daughters just enjoying that beautiful evening.
Lea discussing the world's problems as Buddy officiates in his most peaceful way..
So cute, Buddy and Henrietta visiting... Mar and Lea are thoroughly amused. So great.
Buddy and Coffee...Isn't it funny? He makes Coffee look so little! Coffee chews Buddy's legs and cheeks and Buddy doesn't even mind... They are the team. As you probably know we have four small little doglets too...and kitties....and chickens...
Buddy our sweetheart. The gentle giant...Thank you God for sending us Buddy, we will take good care of him.
I've been busy sewing the Jasmine top from Colette patterns and enjoying that, just taking my time, sizing it, altering it as it needs be...just designing a pretty little top I will be proud of. I have several other creation waiting my creative hand as well...So fun. Sew fun. Our daughters are doing well, just having fun in life, a Life in Christ.
This week's movie for our family will most likely feature the old movie, Seven Days in May (1964).
Tonight's dinner will be a Mediterranean pasta dish made with cashew flour, lemon juice etc. and it is so gooood. Jem tells me to make it again! It's a keeper! : )
When we reflect on God's goodness, pure gratitude wells up in our hearts for all He's given to us. And it's easy to be joyful and at peace.
Randomness: I love pretty ballet flats. That's all I wear....So dainty I think. I say I've been liberated from geisha-girl shoes. (high heels) Yes indeedie!
Take care now, Amelia: The Last Child in the Woods, just happy to be here. Thank you Father.
