What We Were Up to This Summer Part Two

Verses of the Day:
"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early. The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

I hope everyone is having a happy Friday. We are waiting on Hurricane Irene to make her debut and be gone. Me and the girls are just chillin out at home today.

Last week Emily had VBS at Bible Baptist Church in New Egypt and she had a blast. She won an award for saying all of her Bible verses and perfect attendance. She was very happy.  The theme was Operation Space and Emily got to make some cool things. One of her favorites is her Robot.

She got to learn new songs and of course learned about Jesus. She loves to learn about Jesus and asked me if you could go up in the sky in an airplane and go see Jesus. I told her one day she will.

Now before we went on our trip Emma had her very first haircut! Yes I said very first! She is 4 and has NEVER had even a trim. Her hair was thick on the top and thin at the ends so I had to bite the bullet and get it cut. She loved it and it made her feel like such a big girl. 

She was all ready to go

A girl named Erica cut her hair for me and did a very good job. She is a fellow AF wife and mommy and was very patient with Emily. This is the very first time I used her and now she cuts my hair.

This was how short it had to be cut to even it out. She is doing the final trimming here.

I was very pleased with how it turned out and now Emma's hair looks so much healthier. AND I didn't even cry! I was so shocked!

Now we are prepping for his hurricane that is supposed to hit us pretty hard on Saturday night or Sunday morning. We are bottling water and have went shopping for canned stuff and non perishable food. I will making and putting up homemade soup and pinto beans just in case the power is out a while. Thankfully, I do have a gas stove so I am good to go. Bad thing is, we have a well and the well pump runs off of electricity of course so if our power goes out, which I am sure it will, we have NO water, not even bad water. Please pray for the people in the path of this hurricane and that God will push it off shore. Right now a state of Emergency has been declared for NJ along with 6 other states.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy Friday. God Bless and please remember us all those in the path of Irene.
