Word-Filled and Wordless Wednesday

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”- Romans 8:38-39
Connor's first night in his big boy bed.  Big brother slept close (and stole all the covers) to keep him safe!

  1. Wonderful Scripture, precious picure! Happy WFW to you!

  2. I love that thankful it is true.
    That brother picture is so cute.

  3. I love that verse! It's so reassuring, isn't it?

    I love the picture too!! It's so cute! My kids still like to sleep close together! LOL

  4. Great picture and verse!

    Ooooooooooooooooo, a car bed! :) LOVE the pic of the boys! Big Bro is very protective I see! :)

  5. So neat to have a brother stand (sleep) by his brother. Sweet, sweet picture...of sweet, sweet boys.

  6. Hi Samantha!
    Wow, do I love that verse! It's an amazing comfort, isn't it? Beautiful photo, too. That picture of your boys is precious! Nice to "meet" you and your lovely blog! You have quite a beautiful family.


  7. What a precious picture. Brothers are so sweet. My 20 year old still looks out for his 15 year old "little" brother!

    Love that verse as well. Isn't it awesome to know that nothing can separate us from God's love!

  8. OMGosh! I love that picture! Maybe if Noah had a big brother he would sleep in his bed! Thanks for the verse...

  9. Hi Samantha!!

    Oh..I think I know how you can center my button.

    To have it centered, enter this before the code. I have to type each character one at a time because the comment box won't allow me to type html codes. So..type this line before the original code.


    FYI: The word "center" is in between those symbols.

  10. Hi Samantha, it is so nice to be in a blog that glorifies God's name. :)

  11. Oh how sweet! My son had that bed when he was little. Why do they have to grow up so fast?!?!

    Take care my friend! I hope you have a great Sunday!

Things to Know Before Owning a Golden Retriever:

Our oldest Golden Retriever will be six on April 1st. We got Scarlet when she was just six weeks old and quickly fell in love with her. Within another six weeks, we had our second Golden, Rhett. (Rhett passed away two years ago.) It has been five (almost six) years since we have had adolescent Golden Retrievers in our home. While I have often joked about the “first terrible two years” of a Golden Retriever’s life, I had truly forgotten just how trying a Golden puppy can be - that is until now. Cosmo will be one year old in a matter of weeks, and Rose Bud is six months old. Now all of the reasons we’d joked for so long over how hard it was to survive their puppy hood have come back to me. We’re learning again - the hard way.

With that in mind, I would like to share some tips on owning a Golden. Retriever.

Here are a few things you need to know:

1. You do not own a Golden Retriever. The more accurate description is that they own YOU.
2. Golden Retrievers will chew. If you do not provide the…


So it's been about 15 months since I blogged here.  Most days instead of in depth thoughts, I prefer to post pictures at .  It doesn't require as much brain activity.  But I chose to share this here because it was entirely too long to fit in a Facebook post.  (I do have have four kids after all.)

This was a lot of fun.  I interviewed each of my four kids separately so each answer was original and not "borrowed".  I gained some insight into my kids and learned a few things I need to work on.  And for some reason they all agree I'm obsessed with my dog.  What's up with that.

Here goes..  (Connor is 8, Isaac 12, Jaden 14, and Dacey is 16.)

MOM 1. What is something mom always says to you? Connor  – “You love me.” Isaac  – “God made you special and He and I love you very much.  Precious monkeys and all that jazz.” Jaden  – “If you keep doing that, you’re face will stick like that.” Dacey  – “Be who you are and say what you mean.  T…

Boon's Sunday Sermon #6 - Little Black Dog

Today we'd like to share a writing with you by one of our favorite authors: Elisabeth Elliot.  This piece is beautifully written and describes her thoughts on a dog's 'mortality'.  We hope it touches your heart as it has ours. 

Little Black Dog by Elisabeth Elliot
It is a late October morning of glorious sunshine in New Hampshire and I sit in an antique rocking chair by the window of an old house which was once a barn. The gray rocks on Mount Lafayette's broad summit are dusted with snow, and the sky is as blue as a sky can be. All that is still green today is the evergreens. Between them are the black line drawings of the thin leafless maples, wild cherries, aspens and birches. The feathery tamaracks are dark gold. Little yellow apples hang on one of the gnarled old trees of the orchard. I keep hoping a deer will come for them.

My friend Miriam and I drove up yesterday from Boston for a few days of quiet at my brother's place. Both of us brought a load of desk …
