I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

My Blog Title Verse

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV 
The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Verse of the day

1 out of 365

 Today is day one of my project to take a picture every day. I thought I would start the project out with a picture of my "fine" piece of equipment.  


A few day ago I was in the kitchen, loading the dishwasher I believe, when Andy yelled for me to come take a picture. This is what I saw when I arrived.

Since it was a couple of days ago, I didn't think it could count as my "day one". 
However, I LOVE it. It is a window of my life. 
 My boys had been wrestling, which is a daily event, and had messed up my bed.
Even though it was just a few days after Christmas, my window is open, because the South GA breeze was gently blowing and my barefoot boys needed cooled down. 
 If you look really closely you can see the stack of books on my bedside table, my lifeline to sanity, or escape from reality, depending on the day, right behind Canaan's feet. 
Zion is trying desperately to be exactly like Daddy and brother, but can't quite keep up yet. 
 Andy looks mean and tough, but really, he is laughing.

 And that is the picture of my life.
