Colorado Pictures anyone? :0)

My husband is so cute!!!! This is us at the Royal Gorge sitting by the water clock.

This was my favorite scenic picture, isn't it beautiful?

Very cold up here!

This was right behind the mountain lodge that we stayed in. Surrounded by mountains.

This is a river that ran through the backyard of the mountain lodge that we stayed in.

I have very good intentions of getting on here and posting more often. I'm full of things that I could share. But life is also very full and I wouldn't want it any other way! Let me just say that the Lord is SO AWESOME!
I wanted to post some pictures of our trip, so there they are. The Lord really blessed us in being able to take that little trip. Seeing His beautiful creation always inspires us. We were able to share the gospel with several people through talking with them and giving tracts. I can say that this trip was worse as far as people not liking our family size. Countless people actually glared at us after counting our children and looking at my pregnant belly. It is so sad that people are blinded to God's truth in so many areas but this one hurts me so much. CHILDREN ARE A BLESSING! Let the Lord bless you!
I hope that everyone is reading in God's word everyday and growing. I feel as though I am having a growth spurt! I like it! The Lord is showing me new things and maybe some things that I have been ignoring for awhile. It's really not good to ignore the promptings of the Holy Spirit. There's a really good verse to back that up but I can't remember where it is right now. If you know of any please share! Anyway, you can't feel close and right with the Lord when you are doing what YOU want to do. But, isn't it hard to obey sometimes? The Lord is so good to not leave us alone. He is patient with our faults. I can say that the Lord is getting victory over sin in my life. It feels so good and I know it is from the Lord because I couldn't do it myself. Praise His worthy name!
I hope you are all doing well! Have a very Happy Thanksgiving! Talk to you in a month or two! :0) God Bless!

Hi, Jenny.

Thanks for sharing the photos. The scenic one was incredible. You were actually there and saw that with your own eyes? I can't imagine. To me, places like that only exist in photographs. :)

As for your small family... ;) You're right, I don't see how it could be anything but blindness... of course every good thing comes with a price, but what price would be too great for such treasure?

Funny you should happen to post this today... I just got back from a Bible study in Hebrews 4. Verse 7 says, "To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts." But that's just a small part of the chapter. Go read the whole thing!

Peace. --Jacob

Mmmmmmm!! Gorgeous!! What a wonderful trip!!

It makes me sad that you had to endure some persecution regarding your children. You bring up precious little ones, and yet the family that has two untrained ones is the family that would receive the affirmative nods and understanding eyes. Things of God are foolishness to the world, this He wrote Himself.... I often wonder if more of us would be receiving more persecution if we would stand up more strongly for the things of God. (sigh)

The verse that popped into my mind when you were talking about the Spirit is 1 Thess. 5:19; I wonder if that's the same one you were thinking of.

Thanks for taking the time to post. It's wonderful to see news of your family.

Blessings! Love, sf
