To Him be the glory and honor.

"To Him be the glory and honor. Because in His hands are the depths of the earth, and the heights of the heavens are His." Psalm 95:4

Thank you Lord that YOU AND YOU ONLY rescue and sustain. YOU AND YOU ONLY give grace and cause miracles to happen. May all shouts of joy and applause go to YOU AND YOU ONLY.

Luke and Alia

I'm not sure why I can't find/make time to blog lately so please look at my wonderful friend Renee's blog about our kiddos this summer. I had intentions to link up to it when she posted August!

American History

I read this book last night and loved it! I guess it's for grades 2-5, but I learned more about our Constitution last night than I remember learning in all my social studies classes in school. It was interesting, funny and educational. Before I could barely have told you anything about the Articles of Confederation, The Virginia Plan, the First Continental Congress and all those other names you learn about in 5th grade. I would have recognized the names, but that was it.
The book is wrote in more of a story form than textbook form. SO MUCH MORE INTERESTING!! I now feel like a more informed American. :)
And Jake, you will probably be the only person who doesn't think I'm nuts.
