Lothlorien in Winter


The night wind blew chill up the valley to meet them.  Before them a wide grey shadow loomed, and they heard an endless rustle of leaves like poplars in the breeze.  ‘Lothlorien!’ cried Legolas. ‘Lothlorien! We have come at last to the eaves of the golden wood. Alas that it is winter!’   Under the night the trees stood tall before them…In the dim light of the stars their stems were grey, and their quivering leaves a hint of fallow gold.

In Him we live

Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the Lord hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted.  But Zion said, The Lord hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me.  Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.  Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands… Is. 49:13-16

For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.  Romans 14:8

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Romans 8:38-39

In Him we live, and move, and have our being… Acts 17:28

Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried unto the midst of the sea; though the waters therof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling therof… Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.  The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.  Psalms 46:2-3, 10-11


Of Spiders and Meers

Earlier a strange conversation was going on between mama and mary.

Mary- “mama there’s a spider in the bathroom!!!!!”

Mama- “Oh. Was it under the mirror?”

Mary- “what’s that?”

Mama- “you know what a mirror is, that thing you stand in front of in the bathroom so that you can see yourself.”

Mary- “ohhhhh… you mean a meer.

Mama- “no, Mary, it’s a mirror.”

Mary-“mama, I’m pretty sure it’s a meer.” 

And, well, you get the picture.

The Many Faces of William and Mary

Daddy took these the other day, I think he wanted some serious pictures.  William and Mary had other Ideas. 🙂

Please pray for the Louis family- www.thelouisfamily.wordpress.com.  They are trying to plant a church up in Minneapolis.  We met the Louis family last year when Mr. Brett came to preach at our church.  Mr. Brett and his family(Mrs. Molly, Joshua, Olivia, Isabel, and “baby in Mrs. Molly’s tummy”) came to our church pretty regularly for several months until Mr. Brett finished seminary and they moved up to Minnesota.  Please pray that the Lord would bless them as they get started with this church planting.

News from Price Hill

I’m so sorry I have not posted in so long,  this year seems to have gone by so fast, I can’t believe that it’s already October.  A few months ago we started looking into doing “cradle care” (it’s actually called infant intern foster care, or something like that, I don’t remember the exact wording they used) which is basically where you keep a baby that has already been adopted for a few weeks after he/she is born so that they have somewhere to stay while all the paperwork is being finalized.  We are sending in the application now, but it will be at least Christmas before anything happens.

Everything else on Price Hill has been going along smoothly.  I will be taking the PSAT  in about two weeks and hopefully getting my drivers permit soon.  Everyone has been very exited about “watching the babies”.  When we first started talking about it one of the younger kids asked “but mama, what are the little babies going to eat??” mama had to explain to a shocked audience about “formula” and “bottles”.  Only in the Price house. 🙂

I apologize again for abandoning the blog world.  I’ll try to post more often now, if I can find time away from school and everything.       

A Recipe

 Recipe For A Sleeping Baby~

One baby

a sling or other baby carrier

one person to hold baby in sling/baby carrier

an outside swing 

a pretty evening

place baby in  carrier or sling so that he/she is comfortable and has limited movement.  Swing thoroughly for 3-5 minuets* or until fast asleep.

*results may vary, some babies may take longer.  

I use this recipe when William is really cranky, it works very well.

What I like about being a big sister

When you’re a big sister you get to do lots and lots of great things like-

~doing dishes, laundry,cooking, cleaning and changing LOTS of diapers.

~having your little sister come up to you at 10:00 at night and say “Morgan I really want to sleep in my bed tonight, PLEASE!?” I told her “well, why don’t you sleep with Sarah tonight, since you don’t have any sheets on your bed?” she immediately burst into tears,”but Morgan I REALY want to sleep in my own bed” ;(    So, as you have probably already guesed I went and dug through the laundry room and found some sheets and put her to bed.

~I also get to do lots of stuff like sneaking kisses from the baby after he has fallen asleep on me and reading bedtime stories to my younger siblings.

In all I LOVE being a big sister, and everything that comes with it, whether it’s doing the dishes, playing with William, or helping the boys with school work,and I thank God every day for the amazing family that He has given me.
