Boon's Sunday Sermon #27 - More Than the Stars

Boon is in awe of the cosmic wonder.

This week the hoo-mans finished a bedroom makeover for their three boys.  Mom did the room in  a space theme.  Over a thousand glow in the dark stars, planets, and cosmos later, the room is complete.

Stars have always served as a source of fascination for us.  A family favorite past-time is laying outside on the trampoline to star gaze or watch meteor showers. One of our favorite scriptures says,

"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands."  Psalm 19:1

Glow in the dark stars on the wall.


It is hard for us to imagine looking into space and not seeing God.  To know that He created the universe and all that is within it, and yet knows the number of hairs on our head is beyond comprehension.

Psalm 147: 4 tells us:  "He determines the number of the stars 

   and calls them each by name."



And yet He knows and loves each of us as if though there were only one of us.  He sent His Son into the world to redeem us from our sins to bridge the gap we'd created and provide us a way to Him.  Amazing love!


Psalm 139: 17 says, "How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them!"




 Do you know that God loves you more than all of creation?  Do you know how precious you are to Him?  Take a couple of minutes and listen to this song by Matthew West.  It is God's love song to you.  He loves you more.





Have a blessed week, friends!

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…

MOM

So it's been about 15 months since I blogged here.  Most days instead of in depth thoughts, I prefer to post pictures at www.sivilsandgold.wordpress.com .  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 …
