"Bless the Lord, O my soul, all that is within me, bless His holy name.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits.....
I have said to the LORD, 'You are my Lord, my good above all other.' "

What may seem good to us may actually be but means to lead us to a better good---that seems more painful.

What may seem adverse to us, in the plot line of the Storyteller, is for our ultimate betterment.

God’s story lines in the lives of His children are formulaic: they are all good. The events may jarringly twist and surprise, even seem to pry out our heart, chunk by mangled chunk, but, in the fullness of time, there are no bad endings.

Erinn and I met Mum in Marble Falls yesterday - it was so nice to see her! We had picked up Zoe and Gabby from Johnson City, so we enjoyed chatting with them on the short drive from there to Marble Falls. Thanks Mum, Dad, Bakers, and Neumanns for all the good stuff!
Halcy has a friend who owns a bookstore and is willing to put out a couple of gift baskets of goat milk soap! Also, a friend of mine is going to take two baskets tomorrow - one for a store in Fredericksburg, and one for a store in Kerrville!
Mooky planted two fruit trees today that we got for cheap cheap cheap a couple weeks ago. It took him days and days to dig through the caliche. Then we filled the huge holes back in with good dirt, and planted the trees, adding more dirt. We had to put panels around them to keep them safe from hungry goats. An apple tree and a plum tree!

Kris is definitely Maggie's favorite person.

PJ got a little worried when he saw Erinn lying on the ground!

Little Nameless Boy is so cute and fun to play with!
We're going to miss him and his mama when it's time for them to go back home.

Ever see a goat laugh?
