Faith is Not Believing that God can, It's Knowing that He Will

I'm Hooked

I'm seriously hooked on Marinated Vegetable Salad. It's weird. I'm not crazy about regular salad but this one I can't seem to get enough of. I have it every day. Here's the recipe,

Marinated Vegetable Salad

1-17 ounce can small peas (drained)
1-17 ounce can white shoe peg corn (drained)
1-15 ounce can french style green beans (drained)
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2-1 cup chopped green peppers
1/2 cup Chopped onion
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 (I use a little less) vegetable oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

Combine vegetables and toss lightly
Combine remaining ingredients in saucepan, bring to a boil and stir. Boil until sugar is dissolved. Pour over vegetables and stir well. Cover and chill for 24 hours. Stir well before serving.

Lily Kate

Lily went to her check-up today and did wonderfully. She was nine pounds and twelve ounces. Every night when Mama is putting the boys to bed I hold her in my room and sing to her. She loves music. She looks up at me with her big dark blue eyes and looks so prescious! I love her dearly. I don't have any pictures of me and her uploaded on the computer yet but i hope to soon!

In the Garden

"I come to the garden alone,
While the dew is still on the roses,
And the voice I hear falling on my ear,
The Son of God discloses."

"And He walks with me,
And He talks with me,
And He tells me I am His own,
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known."

I think that hymn is very sweet and it shows how tender God's love is for us. He walks with me, and He talks with me, and He tells me I am His own. He is crazy about me. :D No one can experience that kind of joy apart from Him. I love the words to this song they leave me feeling very peaceful, relaxed, and at ease. That was my great grandpa's favorite. I like it too.~

A Quiz from Eliza~

1. Would you rather wear casual clothes or dressy? Depends, probably dressy
2. Do you wear any make-up? Yes, foundation, a little blush if my cheeks look pale, mascara, and some lipstick.
3. Would you rather have your bedroom on a top story or bottom? Top
4. Do you like heels or flats? Flats. Heels are very pretty but there not very comfortable!;)

Titus the tooth looser!

As you may be able to tell in the picture Titus lost two of his bottom teeth! He was so proud!


P.S. Those were his first teeth to loose! = )

My Reading List for June~

Here is a list of books I've read in the past month. What have you been reading?

"The Redemption of Sarah Cain" by Beverly Lewis
I have wanted to read this book every since I saw the movie and I'm very glad I did. The book is SO much better than the movie. They completely changed the story line. It was a very fun book to read and I was very happy with the ending. I didn't feel like the movie gave a definite finish at all. I really enjoyed it. I read it in only a few days I could hardly put it down!

"Violet's Defiant Daughter" by Martha Finley
I began this book and read the first four chapters last year but never finished it. I decided to read the rest of it so I could move on to the next book in the series that I was really wanting to start. I finished it in a day and I liked it a lot. It was very sweet at the end. I thought it was funny that Elsie Dinsmore is fifty in this book! I will always think of her as the little girl at Roselands. I'm glad she kept her in the story. Violet has always been one of my favorites, partly because she's my age and partly because she has the same color hair as me. I liked this story a lot and am starting on the next one now.

Ten Girls Who Didn't Give In by Irene Howat
This book covers the lives of ten girls who were martyred for their faith, Blandina, Perpetua, Lady Jane Grey, Anne Askew, Lysken Dirks, Marion Harvey, Margaret Wilson, Judith Weinberg, Betty Stam, and Esther John. I got this book from the library because it had a chapter about Margaret Wilson who I am trying to learn more about for Cousin Production's play about her this Christmas. I read the book in a day (It's pretty short) and I learned so much from it. I plan to read the other books in the series.

I'm Currently Reading

"My Utmost for His Highest" by Oswald Chambers
"Ten Boys Who Didn't Give" In by Irene Howat
