October - November 2008


Sweet and Lovable, a Delight to Everyone Julieann, the eighth of the Green children, was born May 2, 2008. A delightful baby from the beginning, Julieann quickly stole the hearts of Mom, Dad, brothers and sisters. In late October 2008, our precious girl was diagnosed with infantile spasms, a rare form of epilepsy. As her illness unfolded, we began documenting her progress on this page so that friends and family would know specifically how to pray for her. We are so thankful to the Lord that her outcome so far is very good. For now, Julieann is seizure-free. We know that the seizures could return tomorrow, or in 10 years - so please continue to pray for her.

School lunch and...

recess breaks. From experimenting with blue barrels

as "side-cars" to the canoe,


SRF

to using Mama's old sheet for a sail,


SRF

the Green children spent a great deal of time


SRF

on the pond this week.


SRF

And they also rescued a nest of baby birds:)


SRF

And Nathaniel so kindly put these boards in place for me as I have to walk by this puddle every day to the little "schoolhouse". I enjoy the smell of the honeysuckles close by and the sight of flowers blooming, but I DO NOT LIKE SNAKES!!!


SRF

And this afternoon, Benjamin brought home this trophy!


SRF

After the boys field-dressed the bird, Anna Rose helped me prepare the turkey for the oven.

"Be strong! We are not here to play, to dream, to drift;
We have hard work to do, and loads to lift;


SRF

Shun not the struggle --- face it; 'tis God's gift.


SRF

Be strong! Say not, "The days are evil. Who's to blame?"


SRF

And fold the hands and acquiesce --- oh, shame!


SRF

Stand up,


SRF

speak out, and bravely, in God's Name.


SRF

Be strong!


SRF

It matters not how deep intrenched the wrong,


SRF

How hard the battle goes, the day how long;


SRF

Faint not --- fight on!


SRF

Tomorrow comes the song."
---Maltbie Davenport Babcock

"Spring brings breezes,
Cool and light; It brings
sunshine Warm and bright.


SRF

Spring brings new leaves,
Fresh and green; It brings flowers
Bright and clean.


SRF

Spring brings pleasant Barefoot days;
Fresh, green grass
For cows to graze.


SRF

God made springtime's
Fresh, clean air;
It's nice to know
Spring's in God's care.
