Consider the Lilies

Consider the Lilies what a peaceful and tender phrase. When I think of my children I am so grateful for them and how sweet they are. How the Lord has blessed us with so much! With the worlds turmoil and doom and gloom it gives me such strength to know that we are all being watched over.

In the sermon on the Mount, Jesus said:

25 Therefore I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on....

26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? ...

28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. ...
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

32 ...for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be fadded unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take
thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

This beautiful song by Roger Hoffman is an expression of these words: - Video


Consider the lilies of the field,How they grow, how they grow.
Consider the birds in the sky,How they fly, how they fly.
He clothes the lilies of the field.He feeds the birds in the sky.
And He will feed those who trust Him,And guide them with His eye.
Consider the sheep of His fold,How they follow where He leads.
Though the path may wind across the mountains,
He knows the meadows where they feed.
He clothes the lilies of the field.He feeds the birds in the sky,
And He will feed those who trust Him,And guide them with His eye.
Consider the sweet, tender childrenWho must suffer on this earth.
The pains of all of them He carriedFrom the day of His birth.
He clothes the lilies of the field,He feeds the lambs in His fold,
And He will heal those who trust Him,And make their hearts as gold.

Angels game

This was the first Professional Baseball game we took our kids to. It was 80's night and they got the retro Angels baseball hat. We had so much fun the kids loved it. Our seats were even behind home plate.

Imagination Workshop

This room was my favorite. It's dark w/ neon paintings and writing on the walls. It makes everything white or neon extremely light. I guess like a black light works. The kids loved seeing their clothes light up.
Testing, testing.

Oh no! Honey I shrunk the kids!

The music room was probably their favorite room. They got to bang on drums, see an old juke box, listen to music, play a piano that was connected to a bunch of other instruments and each key played made the other instument sound.

This was called the time machine. The wheel Naomi is holding spins one way while gravity moved her in the opposite direction.

This room simulated an earthquake. The kids got to build a tower w/ blocks and push a button that makes the earth move.

I took the girls to the imagination workshop in old town Temecula. It's right next to Naomi's Polynesian Dance Class'. We had a blast. It is such a cool place and very educational.

I'm going to be a Garbage Picker when I grow up!

Little Naomi so sweet. She was talking with Malachi one morning while I was doing the dishes. I don't know how this conversation came about but all of the sudden I hear, "No Malachi! I'm going to be a Garbage Picker when I grow up, because that's what Porter wants to be so I'm going to be one too."
Their little cousin Porter was visiting a few months ago. He loves to watch the Garbage man drive the truck and dump the garbage. So he told them that he wants to be a Garbage man. Well Naomi thinks it's called Garbage picker. At least that's her goal rather than a person digging through stuff at the dump??? Garbage picker!

She's going to be the death of me...

Life was so simple with 2 kids. I felt like I had some control of my life. Even 3 wasn't too bad. Once we had 4 something changed. I think it was the fact that Cassidy turned 2. She is into everything!!! My other kids never really broke anything too valuable or important or got into too much. Cassidy on the other hand has tipped over my Tiffany lamp and broke it, tore up display books, shattered toenail polish... So a few weeks ago I left my make up bag out. All of the sudden I hear Naomi yelling "She's got your make up!" It's funny how they know to hide when they are being mischievous. So she is hiding in the living room next to the chair and a half. I find her and she has my ever last lipstick rubbed all over her face, the wall, the carpet and fireplace. WHY!!!!! At first I had to laugh a little because she looked like a clown. I took a quick picture of her after I got the make up out of her hands. Then went to do damage control. I couldn't get it off the wall so I'm repainting over that. The carpet it came out of miraculously. Her face how ever it would not come off. Talk about a good ad for ever last lipstick. This was like permanent marker. So she looked like she got into a chocolate pudding and I didn't clean her up. I ran errands the next day and can't tell you how many people told me she got into a chocolate bar, or had a chocolate ice cream. Yes I did bathe her it just wasn't coming off. Well that past and sure enough she found it again. This time only on her face and legs and not so cute the second time around. Third time now she's climbing on the counter to get it. Fourth time it's not my lipstick, but my eyeliner all over her lips and face. I'm trying to hide my make up, but I can barely remember what I did yesterday let alone remember when I hid my make up and you don't want me going out into public w/o it.
