~ A Heart of Worship ~

Take the time to "Be still and know," you'll be amazed at how much your life will be changed, refreshed and satisfied. Be blessed.

Hear My Voice
~ by Jeremy Camp

You are the only one that brings me peace
You are the only one where hope is seen
The mercy you've given is more than I deserve
So I lay it down so I can heed your word

Hear my voice, I raise to you
With Honor and praise

All Glory is due
I lay it down all at your feet
With lifted hands it's you we seek

You are the only one that brings me truth
You are the only one that makes me new
The grace you've given a gift for all to see
So this is why I give you everything

And to you I lift my voice
And to you I life my hands
And to you I give my heart

~ Happy Father's Day ~

"Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in his ways.
For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands:
happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.
Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house:
thy children like olive plants round about thy table.
Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord."
Ps. 128:1-4

May we always remember to honor and revere our fathers!

~ Something to Think About ~

If a man does not keep pace
with his companions,
perhaps it is because
he hears a different drummer.
Let him step to the music
which he hears, however measured
or far away.

~ from Walden

(this may be a repeat for Something to think about but worth it)

~ Something to think About ~

"Joyful is the person who finds wisdom,
the one who gains understanding.
For wisdom is more profitable than silver,
and her wages are better than gold."
~ Prov 3:13, 14 NLT

Are you this joyful person? If not, you can be!

Random Thoughts

Its been quiet around here. I've not had much to blog about though I could easily write about my books read, the projects completed, the fact that we finished our school term or various sun dried items. But I've not said anything. I am pondering simplicity for my life. I currently have about 6 active blogs and I'm beginning to not enjoy keeping so many. I know several will have to remain active so that I can leave comments for my friends. However, I'm beginning to feel the need to simplify to 2 main blogs and just be. I want to keep this one ~ which is near and dear to my heart. The only change would be to add our school entries here. Since I focus on learning for this blog its only fitting to add our school stuff here. Yes, I know that would mean giving up my beloved Excelsior Warriors url but for the sake of my sanity and less is more, it will have to go. Its been a wonderful almost 2 yrs blogging but the thrill has faded and I must move on. I'm planning to make my crafty blog my homestead/craft/daily life blog, but the more I think about it ~ I may size down to just 1 blog or website. Hmm, don't know for sure yet but I'll keep you posted.

Have an awesome weekend!
