One of my Favorite Verses

Today I was reading one of my favorite chapters in the Bible and also one of my favorite verses. I think it is a wonderful verse for all young women to read and understand. My cousin has this verse painted in her room. It is so pretty and every time I read it I just think that I hope I am one of these young ladies.

"Many daughters have done well, But you excel them all." Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the Lord, She shall be praised." Proverbs 31:29-30

We should purpose to be a godly women who fears the Lord all of the time. I pray that we all can be that and also be a good example if we have younger siblings that can follow us. We should try to set a good example for our younger siblings not bad examples. Let's try to do that with a whole heart. I hope this was encouraging to you.

In Christ,

Use your Whole Herat to Sing to the Lord

Today I was reading my Bible and I came across Psalm 30:4. It just reminds us that we need to sing with a whole heart and worship Him with gladness. I think we can always use a little reminder about that. I know that when I am around people that I have just met I do not sing as loud as I always do because I think that they will think that I don't have a good voice which I know God doesn't care what your voice sounds like you just need to sing to the Lord and not to man.

"Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His, And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name."

So, this week let's try to remember that, I think it is a very great thing to keep in mind. I am going to purpose to do a better job at that. When I moved to North Carolina I was so quiet and barely sang at all. But, since we have been here for 2 and a half years i am totally different. Let's purpose to sing with a whole heart.

In Christ,

Prairie Day


These are pictures from our wonderful Prairie Day that we had. It went really well. We were outside all day and cooking over the fire. Our menu consisted of Beans, cornbread, sweet potatoes, green peppers, fried fish, and corn. We had eggs for breakfast and popcorn as a mid morning snack. I think the popcorn was the best part of the meal. We were going to get a chicken but the guy we buy the chicken from wasn't home. Instead we got our boys out fishing for us and caught 2 fish and fried them up. They were pretty good. The cornbread was the worst part of the meal. It tasted like dog treats. Well, I hope you enjoy the pictures and here they are!!

Tyler and Jabez out on the boat trying to catch some fish.

Lexi and Emmi just being girls, there so cute together.

They were all a mess, but they had a real fun time outside all day.

This was the oil fire that we had, Pappi put the pan on the fire and
the oil caught on fire so he put that white bowl on top of it while the eggs were in the bowl and
the oil splattered everywhere. It was something. Remember, there is never a dull moment around the Tsantles. No one got hurt, it was really funny after the fact. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

In Christ,

A Trip to Lazy Ranch

Last week we took a little day trip about 3 hours away with out friends that came in for Thanksgiving and we went to Lazy Ranch. God has created such beautiful things on this earth and we need to be grateful that we can see them and just watch what God has created. They have animals that you do not even see in the zoo. They have giraffes, zebras, yaks, and even put belly pigs. I think the pot belly pigs were so cute, they even had baby pigs. They are so little and cute but we have to remember that they won't be that small for forever. I have a ton of pictures, so I will just have to choose some to share with you guys. Here they are!!!!

Big pop belly pig, his belly was dragging on the ground and he could barely walk.

Here is the huge cow, he actually played in a movie with his brother and is a super star. His tongue was so big and looked like sand paper.

This is how tall the giraffes were, they are so tall.

This is one of the Lama's that they had. I don't get to close to any of them.

I forget what kind of animal this is but they were huge!!!
These are the little teeny baby pigs, they were so cute. We have to remember that
they don't stay that cute there whole life!!!

I am feeding the giraffe. They are huge. I never realized how big they are.

Here is the baby zebra, he was posing for us. He wouldn't move from that spot. I
thought that was really funny.

Tori (Toozle) is getting ready to through food to the big animals!!!!

This little trip that we took was really fun and we all had a great time. We get to ride in the uncovered wagon and pet some of the animals and feed them all. I hope you enjoy all of the pictures of the Lazy ranch trip. That was our second time going there. We had a great time seeing God's creations.

Ladies at the Tea Room

When the Whaley's were here we all went to the Old English Tea Room in Wake Forest. We had a really great time with all of the girls. Everybody got Tea and cookies.
