And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all people will see it together.
(Isaiah 40:5)
Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all.
(I Chronicles 29:11)

For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.
(Romans 11:36)

An evening out at the old kitchen

It might have been the original house on this site. 
But we call it The Old Kitchen.
In some old houses, the kitchen was detached and sat out back to keep heat and the danger of fire away from the main house. If it was an old kitchen building, it would have served the little red house (now Martha and Mike's home) that used to sit where our home is now.

Whatever else it has been, The Old Kitchen has served as a dwelling and farm store in its day. 
One day this summer we decided it would be fun to have a family gathering inside--the occasion was a celebration of August birthdays of both Martha and Rachael. 
And so we did.

We love because He first loved us.
