Summer Reading Aloud & Wednesday's Prayer Girls & LinkUp Party!

Don't you just love the chance to slow down and do the things you love in the summer? I have loved spending time with my mama. Here we are in our sun hats ~

We're building a house and where the water is on the floor is our kitchen :-) The scripture I keep thinking of that keeps reminding me that my attitude will be so important in our home (and now) is Psalm 127:1: {I should have read it more this weekend and pondered on it as I was bickering about things that will not matter in the long run ☹, especially as I learned the medical news concerning one of our dear reader's grandchild. Hearing her news put everything into the right perspective (see prayer requests in comment section below)}. 

"Unless the Lord builds a house, its laborers labor in vain." Thank you Lord that your mercies are new every morning!

I love reading aloud to Mary. We have two books going! These are both excellent Christian books to read aloud: A Girl of the Limberlost and Elsie Dinsmore. I read aloud to Mary even though she is 17 because she is blind, and many of the books we want to read are not available in Braille or audio. You can read Mary's story here. We also adore The Child's Story Bible by Catherine Vos. It is fantastic no matter if you are 5 or 95. It sticks to the Bible account, while keeping the beautiful language of the Bible (we read the day's reading in that first, then our other books, and we usually split up reading the books since we have 2 going. One we read after breakfast and one later in the day or at night).

Remember, God desires us not only to be a believers, but to be wholehearted disciples of Jesus Christ! May we listen to Him daily through His word, and obey Him!

Walk by faith,


  1. Please pray for little Libby, born several weeks ago with a very hard delivery. An MRI a few days ago revealed several concerns one of which is her life expectancy, and whether she will walk or talk (doctors say MRI shows she will not, but let's all keep praying for her!) Her grandmother is one of our very regular blog contributors on Wednesdays, Jana H. Pray for little Libby and her parents Lane and Kat.

  2. Praying hard for Libby and family! Praying for miracles! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Libby went home today! And both myself and my husband were able to hold her these past few days. Can't wait to hold her again! Also cannot wait to see what God has in store for her, all I know right now is that she will bring joy and be a blessing to so many. I am so thankful for her. So wish I could post pics! Thank you all for praying for her and her family.

    1. So glad Libby is home now! Oh how wonderful you got to hold her! I wrote a note to Kathryn on her blog last night. The photos are adorable. Will keep praying, Jana for Libby's little life.


Thank you for your comment!
