The Christian Race

The Christian Race
Awake,our souls! Away,our fears!
Let every trembling thought be gone!
Awake,and run the heavenly race,
And put a cheerful courage on.
True 'tis a straight and thorny road,
And mortal spirits tire and faint,
But they forget the mighty God,
That feeds the strength of every saint.
The mighty God whose matchless power
Is ever new and ever young.
And firm endures, While endless years
Their everlasting circle run.
From thee, the overflowing spring,
Our souls shall drink a fresh supply,
while such as trust their native strength
shall melt away ,and droop and die.
Swift as an eagle cuts the air;
We'll mount aloft to thine abode;
On wings of love our souls shall fly,
nor tire admist the heavenly road.

Beautiful sunshine

Hi everyone, we hope that you all had a great weekend!
It rained here both Friday and Saturday.
We were really thankful for the rain but the beautiful sunshine
made us all the more happy that it had finally stopped.
On our way to lunch today we noticed how green and
spring-like everything is
We enjoyed our beautiful, sunny,windy,spring day!

Busy is the word..

Hi everyone! It seems like we haven't blogged in forever!
We have been busy with school these past two days and we also
had a busy weekend. So, there really hasn't been that much time
for blogging. Hopefully you all know how that is! (:
This past Saturday we went to Brevard,NC to attend our
sweet little cousin Madisyn's 4th Birthday Party.
She had a western themed party. She looked so cute! (;

There were horses for the children to ride.

Madisyn seemed to have a fun time on the slide! So,now we have updated you all on what we've been up to! (0:
We must go for now, there are tons of things that need to be done!
~Have a great week!~

The Joy..

..of spring cleaning! lol That may sounds weird to some of you but believe it or not we actually enjoy cleaning! ( or at least Holly (0: Yesterday Katie and I cleaned all of the carpet in our house. After hours of scrubbing,spraying and sucking up carpet cleaner the carpet looks new again! It really wasn't that bad to begin with since I (Holly) vacuum constantly. However, It does make you feel good to wake up and with the house smelling like new. So, Have you all started your spring cleaning yet? It isn't really a big deal around here since we "spring clean" at least once a week but there are those things like switching seasonal clothes,cleaning carpets,pressure washing, and such that we look forward to doing in the spring time... (:
Well, now you know what we've been up to!
I (Holly) am off to help mom prepare dinner for tonight
before I mop the kitchen and tidy up the rest of the house.
~Have a great day!~

Hi! So all of the snow is gone now lol
It seems as though we were posting nothing but
snow pictures there for awhile!
Now everything is back to normal..
No more slushy mess.
Although it was nice to get a taste of winter weather!
The wonderful blessings of spring time are appearing now
and it is so nice! We noticed that some of our Daffodils
have bloomed. They are so pretty. The tulips should be
coming up pretty soon too. We can't wait! (:
After finishing school today Katie and I enjoyed a nice afternoon of
washing the car and just taking in the beautiful day.
Is it beginning to feel like spring where you are?
Have a great weekend!

Hi Everyone! Here are the rest of the pictures that we took of the snow.
They are not in any particular order so that is why in some of them
it looks like less snow.
We went for a drive to see some snow scenes..
