II Corinthians 6:3-10

II Corinthians 6:3-10

We give no offense in anything, that our ministry may not be blamed. But in all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God: in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distresses, in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in fastings; by purity, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love, by the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, by honor and dishonor, by evil report and good report; as deceivers, and yet true; as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold we live; as chastened, and yet not killed; as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

This morning we went to a very sweet Baptist Church. The people were so friendly and every one wanted to shake our hands. We were a little …well flustered or something. Overwhelmed! Yes! Overwhelmed! We probably shook every one of those hands in the whole church. And within 5 or 10 minutes! I was standing in the pew facing the back, shook a hand and said “hello, my name is Priscilla” then I would turn around and say the same thing to the person in the pew in front of me. Then, turn around and do it again. Finally, I just started saying “Priscilla, Priscilla, Priscilla” as I spun trying to shake everyone’s hand! We get home from church and I find every one else had a similar story. An older lady apparently stuck her hand out to Dad and He didn't see her and turned away form her. Mom quickly took her hand and sweetly greeted her. But the lady still hadn't shook Dad’s hand, so she stuck it out again toward him. So Mom tapped dad’s shoulder and said “Won’t you meet my husband!” The lady got her hand-shake! Then, Dad, when someone said they hoped we’d come again, said “You, too!” 

My sock

I have worked on knitting a sock for a while now. The first time I tryed it came out to small so I took it out. This is my second try and I love it!

 So, what do you think?
I hope everyone has a blessed day!

The dog...

I love George MacDonald....
"Now the shepherd, though he is wise, is not quite clever enough for all that is wanted of him up in those strange, terrible hills; and he needs another to help him. Now, who do you think helps the shepherd? Ah! you know, Maggy; but you mustn't tell. I will tell. It is a curious creature with four legs—the shepherd has only two, you know;--and he is covered all over with three different colors mixed—black, and brown, and white; and he has a long nose and a longer tongue, which he knows how to hold. This tongue is a great comfort to him sometimes to hang out of his mouth as far as ever it will hang. And he has a still longer tail, which is a greater comfort to him yet. I don’t know what ever he would do without his tail; for, when his master speaks kindly to him, he is so full of delight, that I think he would die if he hadn't his tail to wag. He lets his gladness off be wagging his tail, so that it shan't burst his dear, honest, good dog-heart. Ah! there, I've told you. He’s a dog, you see; and the very wisest and cleverest of all dogs. He could be taught anything. Only, he is such a gentlemen, though dressed very plainly, as a great many gentlemen are, that it would be a shame to teach him some of the things they teach common-place rich dogs."

The sermon that we heard today was taken from Jeremiah 18 and the pastor was showing us how like the Israelite's we are in America today! Isn't it great that we who believe is Christ's shed blood are only Pilgrims here and that we were not made for this world?! All the suffering that will come upon us is there for strengthening us and making us fit for the life to come.
And, yes! God will punish America for the way it has gone. We need more than ever to study God's word so that our faith does not falter when trials come! America needs a revival!

Jeremiah 18:1-12
The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying: “Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause you to hear My words.” Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something at the wheel. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make.
Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying: “O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter?” says the Lord. “Look, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel! The instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, to pull down, and to destroy it, if that nation against whom I have spoken turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I thought to bring upon it. And the instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it, if it does evil in My sight so that it does not obey My voice, then I will relent concerning the good with which I said I would benefit it.
“Now therefore, speak to the men of Judah and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord: “Behold, I am fashioning a disaster and devising a plan against you. Return now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good.”’”
And they said, “That is hopeless! So we will walk according to our own plans, and we will every one obey the dictates of his evil heart.”

Sorry the background is white. It seems to do that whenever I copy and paste things on here... I didn't feel like typing out that section of scripture and I don't know how to fix it;)
I hope you have had a wonderful day! Did you go to church and were you encouraged? I was!

The mountains!

Yesterday we went to the mountains after church. It was a beautiful day to be out. Not to hot, not to cold!
It was very windy up at the top, though, but it felt very good!
All the girls.
The views up there are so nice!
Yeah... It was windy. : )

Here is the path that we came up.
Lydia had so much fun!

Can you see something wrong with this picture?
I bet the person up there didn't know they had an audience!
Then we went to a small but beautiful waterfall...
Me in a cool window...
And here is a close up of the mountain we climbed.
Isn't it neat?
The fall colors were gorgeous!
How are the colors where you live?

Chimney Sweep!

Yesterday Dad cleaned out the chimney like he does about ever other year. I always love it because then I can get on the roof and take pictures:)

Lydia loves climbing all the way up,
 but she hasn't gotten on the roof, yet.

The view...

Looking down the ladder...

A little spider on the ladder...

Cleaning out the gutters.

The dancing chimney sweep!

From one corner of the roof.


The chimney sweep.
On the 29th was Mom's Birthday...yeah, I'm a little behind! But happy Birthday Mom!
Carrot cake!
Made by me!
The cake turned out tasting great, but it was really crumbly.
And I thought this picture was cool because it is an azalea in the fall! 
Well got to get ready for church!

I'm Not Blond!

I was messing around tonight with a light that I had broken (ahem, ahem), and in the process of fixing it I decided to unplug it for safety. I took the light bulb out, fixed the problem and put the light bulb back in. Then I had to test it out so I went to turn it on. Nothing. I turned the switch again. Nothing still. After a few more tries that ended in failure I took the light bulb out and started messing around in there again. Dad says " Be careful, Priscilla!"  and I respond " Don't worry! It's unplugged!" Oh! That's why it wouldn't turn on!
No, I'm not blond!


Fall is here! Isn't it so nice to have cooler weather? Here are some random pictures I've taken...


We have a tree-house that I climbed into the other day and I thought this was a cool picture...
Our flag through the trees.


Can you guess what this is?
You may not want to know...
I just had to post to get rid of that last silly post from always coming up;)

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 14:27

Hahaha! Someone got on your blog because someone left it up for someone to mess with. ;)
Hello, followers of Cilla! This is her mischievous sister causing just a little bit of trouble. ;)
Well, goodbye!
I better get off before I am caught! ;)

Hats and Things

I just finished knitting a hat the other day. It is one of my favorites.  I might add a rosette later.
Can you see the needles at the top? ; )
This is before it was finished.
I like the way it fits over my head so nicely. Most of mine don't turn out like that.
Now I am making another one for my sister. : )

For a while we had been smelling a very bad smell in the fridge and then I went into a deep recess looking for something and found this...
Nasty, nasty lemon!
Isn't this pretty? We got this little set from a friend. One of her friends made it.
A sunset...
I hope you have a lovely day! I did a little bit of yard work today and the weather was beautiful! Enjoy it!

P.S. Here is the hat with the rosette...
What do you think?
