Guys Campout / Mother's Day

Our church guys went on their annual campout last night.  Silas and Isaac each built themselves a shelter instead of using a tent and this is Silas'.  Looks pretty cozy to me!

I just loved this picture Silas took of the tall, majestic trees. 


Mr. H. did the cooking and planning.  Looks like some of the younger guys enjoyed watching.  They had a good time fellowshipping and having devotions, target shooting and tomahawk throwing.   I think it's good for the guys to do this.

Today we had our Mother / Daughter church tea.  It was really nice and encouraging.  There was some sharing about the Proverbs 31 woman.  The Bible I used for many years was missing this chapter.  Shortly after I got the Bible my oldest daughter, not to name names ;) was just a baby and tore it out and ruined it.  Of all chapters!  Oh well!  I'm happy for my two little mothers pictured!  I'm also happy to be a mother, and out of all the jobs I could have dreamed of to do, God allowed me to have the best one of all!  It's not easy, especially for these young mothers, I remember!  It's still not easy, just a different kind of hard.  I hope all you young mother's out there have a wonderful weekend!  Try to have a long range look.  Things that seem so hard today will be rewarded tomorrow.  If I could start all over again with little children, I would love them so much more.  I would be more patient (at least I hope I would be!).  I'm glad for a chance to be a grandma with little people to love and to practice patience.  I also feel so blessed to have a wonderful mother of my own and a wonderful mother-in-law!  God is so good!

"Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her."
Proverbs 31:28
