"In Kings Palaces..."

Persistence is the twin sister of excellence.
One is a matter of quality; the other, a matter of time.

Marabel Morgan

The spider skillfully grasps with its hands,
And it is in kings palaces.

Proverbs 30:28

Annual Harrison Reunion

This time of year holds many things on the calendar for our family including the annual Harrison Reunion that is held in honor of my Grandmother's family. This year the event was, as always, a fun and relaxing time to get to know our family better and partake in the different games and activities throughout the afternoon.

The cookie Judge! A contest was held to determine who had made the best cookies and dad was chosen to be a judge. Even though our recipe did not win, it sure was a fun (and tasty) idea! Posted by Picasa

Letting it fly. The play that ended the game was a painful one. Joshua was up to bat, John pitching. He threw it straight, Josh swung and hit a line drive straight back to John who, reaching out in a quick reflex to snag the ball, which was going beyond the range of his glove, received this slamming force right on the base of his thumb and palm. Though at first we were afraid it was broken, as it swelled, spasmed and bruised, after applying a few compresses of Comfrey and taking some homeopathic remedies, it appears to have healed wonderfully with only a broken blood vessel and a little stiffness. Praise God for His awesome protections and instruments of healing! Posted by Picasa
