Around this last Christmas the children and I took a field trip to Rosewood Farms. A wonderful, rustic gift shop that has cool gifts, aprons, chocolate (that they make) and frappes. While looking through the store I saw several different styles of signs that read "All because two people fell in love."

The words are sweet, aren't they? "All because two people fell in love." The saying implies a lot. I contemplated the words. After thinking it over I decided I wanted a sign that read "All because God did a work".

I found a fellow Etsian that has a sign shop, has good feedback and would do custom orders. Three weeks ago I ordered my sign and I am so pleased with the results.

SawdustNStitches is a wonderful seller to work with, timely and reasonably priced.

Wilson Humor

Friday, Elijah and Stephen came into the house dragging a moaning Ezra by the under arms. Ezra's face was covered with blood and he was moaning rather loudly. Any mother would be startled and concerned at the sight.

Apparently, Ezra turned half way around to catch a football and while coming back around didn't realize how close he was to a pine tree and ran smack into the tree, scrapping his face pretty good.
Later I overheard Elijah and Stephen telling their older brother and sister this story....
Ezra was laying there on the ground and said "Boys, drag me into the house!" Stephen and Elijah both heartily agreed with "Oh, this oughta be good!" They knew it would get me and it did.
Ezra didn't need dragging at all. Thats Wilson humor. All my boys live to get a reaction. From Dad all the way down!

I Would Gather Children

Some would gather money
Along the path of life;
Some would gather roses,
And rest from worldly strife.

But I would gather children
From among the thorns of sin;
I would seek a golden curl,
And a freckled, toothless grin.

For money cannot enter
In that land of endless day;
And roses that are gathered
Soon will wilt along the way.

But, oh, the laughing children,
As I cross the sunset sea,
And the gates swing wide to heaven -
I can take them in with me.
