Christmas Sewing

This is the night gown I have been working on for Genevieve, I am also making a smaller version for Bayleigh. I still have to finish out some of the trim and add a few bows. I can't wait to see them open them on Christmas morning!
Thanks mom for all of your long distance sewing advice!

Fall Leaves

Fun in the leaves at Pa Paw Kerry's house.

Tuesday, November 13, 2007 favorite hymn

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation;
O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation:
All ye who hear, Now to His temple draw near;
join me in glad adoration.
Praise to the Lord, Who o'er all things so wondrously reigneth,
Shelters thee under His wings, yea, so gently sustaineth:
Hast thou not seen How thy desires e'er have been
Granted in what He ordaineth.
Praise to the Lord, Who doth prosper thy works and defend thee;
Surely His goodness and mercy here daily attend thee.
Ponder anew What the Almighty can do,
If with His love He befriend thee!
Praise to the Lord, Who with marvelous wisdom hath made thee,
Decked thee with health and with loving hand guided and stayed thee.
How oft in grief Hath not He brought thee relief,
Spreading His wings to o'er shade thee!
Praise to the Lord, Who when darkness of sin is abounding,
Who, when the godless do triumph, all virtue confounding,
Sheddeth His light, chaseth the horrors of night,
Saints with His mercy surrounding.
Praise to the Lord, O let all that is in me adore Him!
All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before Him.
Let the Amen Sound from His people again,
Gladly for aye we adore Him.

Grandpa Dawson

Robert Lee Dawson.
God has been so gracious to our family by allowing my beloved Grandfather to pass quickly with assurance of his salvation. The children and I arrived on Sat Night, we visited him in the hospital on Sunday and had wonderful conversation. Dawson made him laugh with his super human skinny trick and Bayleigh entertained with her smiles. Grandpa Dawson fell asleep early this morning surrounded by his wife and daughters. I am so thankful that the end to his suffering has come. Glory be to God! Please keep my family in prayer this week as we move on with funeral arrangements.
