The Beautiful Spring Day at Elizabeth Park

On that gorgeous day last week when the weather was high 60s and we just couldn't stay inside any more, the majority of our family headed over to one of our most favorite spots - Elizabeth Park. Though the condition of the earth was not conducive to walking the enjoyed trails, we still had a wonderful time walking, jogging and of course taking pictures around the peninsula overlooking the Detroit river!

He[God] sends the springs into the valleys;
They flow among the hills.
They give drink to every beast of the field;
The wild donkeys quench their thirst.
By them the birds of the heavens have their home;
They sing among the branches.
He waters the hills from His upper chambers;
The earth is satisfied with the fruit of Your works.

He causes the grass to grow for the cattle,
And vegetation for the service of man,
That he may bring forth food from the earth,
O LORD, how manifold are Your works!
In wisdom You have made them all.
The earth is full of Your possessions—
Psalm 104:10-14 and 24

Sing to the LORD with the harp,
With the harp and the sound of a psalm,
With trumpets and the sound of a horn;
Shout joyfully before the LORD, the King.

Let the sea roar, and all its fullness,
The world and those who dwell in it;
Let the rivers clap their hands;
Let the hills be joyful together
before the LORD,
For He is coming to judge the earth.
With righteousness He shall judge the world,
And the peoples with equity.
Psalm 98:5-9

A Visit to Simple Times Farm

Our dear friends, the Klatys have recently purchased a milk goat business and have also started selling other things including our homemade bread under their home business title of Simple Times Farm. A few Sundays ago because they could not make it to church we decided to pay them a visit, to deliver the bread and see the newest arrivals to their herd as almost all the does they had purchased were expecting this time of year. Check our their family Blog for more pictures and information about their farm.

Josiah greatly enjoyed holding the kids and received many kisses.
