As Promised. . .

More pictures of the farm! It was one of the coldest nights we have had yet at the barn! There were some frozen toes, numb fingers and red noses, but it was a great night!

Amelia was able to teach the riding class under the supervision of Liz, a licensed instructor.

Alyssa was able to ride at the beginning of the class.

Coralie working hard in the tack room, telling me to quit obsessing over taking pictures and to get to work! Just kidding - she was telling me to not take this picture and put it on the blog. ;)

Blessings Farm Photos

Though it's been a while since we have posted pictures or mentioned the horse farm, we are still actively involved every week as volunteers. As of late, going to the barn has been extremely challenging because of the bitterly cold nights we have had. Nevertheless, we still enjoy (very much!) going every Monday night to help "Miss Liz" with classes. Since there are only a few kids who have been coming to the Monday night classes, some of us have been able to ride and get in on some training, as well.

I captured a shot right as we were headed down to the barn.

JD (Jim Dandy) is our poser . . . yes, definitely a poser. :)

PS: I promise to get some more pictures on here of the farm . . .soon as I get some better nights to do to so!

HSBC 5th Year Anniversary Celebration

Our church celebrated its 5 years of existence this past weekend as Hampton Street Baptist Church. Of course we would have enjoyed every bit of the celebration if we were all alone last weekend, but what made it even more special were the people from sister churches who came to celebrate with us. The services were wonderful, the singing and fellowship sweet, and just the fact that we were celebrating the first five, tough years as HSBC was encouraging to not only our family, but the church family as well. We made it this far, and with some an enthusiasm and passion to continue to "run the race" we look forward to the many blessings God has in store for us as we faithfully follow Him. Continue to keep praying for our family as we enter the new year ahead of us.

Of course many, many pictures were taken during the weekend, and we hope you enjoy viewing them and getting a feel of the same excitement we had during the event.

Just a simple reminder of God's amazing power shown to us through an intricately designed flower. . .a flower that only He could create so magnificently.
