Forgotten Birthdays:)!!!

Eager to seek the Scriptures
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed, by the renewing of your mind. That ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.
 Reuben, we are so glad that you are home, once more, with us!! Unfortunately, we got no pictures on Reuben's birthday; however, we still had a nice day. We're just thankful he was at home for us to celebrate with him. For the last two years he has been gone in Taiwan on his birthday!
Psalm 119:103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! ~Here Reuben is copying out the book of Proverbs~
Since Reuben loves hot drinks in large quantities, especially tea, Mom got him this awesome massive cup:)

Initiative (*uses*)

Something that Marie, and really all of us, enjoy, is filling Christmas shoe boxes. The little girls did jobs for Mom, Dad, and their older siblings to earn money for a little girl shoe box.
 Psalm 133:1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! On the night before Marie's b-day, she, and some other people, played Settler's of Catan.
Dirt...a good choice for a quick, easy, delicious birthday dessert:)
Another birthday game going in full blast...Monopoly Empire: our family's favorite of all the Monopoly games ever made!!
Psalm 118:24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Friends and cousins!!
As a treat, Reuben brought Marie out for lunch! She loved it:)
 ~But grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.~1 Peter 3:18 ~ Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.~2 Timothy 2:15

May you all remember that our lives are but a vapor. We pass on and are forgotten; May we do on this earth what really matters: Loving God and loving others!! If you have a memory, verse, or something to bless the birthday people with, that would be great. I will leave you with this quote:

Some want to live within the sound
Of church or chapel bell;
I want to run a rescue shop,
Within a yard of hell.”~C.T. Studd~
