FHE for August 11

Scripture: Job 19:25
Song: I Am A Child Of God, Children’s Songbook, pg 2
We discussed these three questions.
What is a testimony?
How do we get a testimony?
How do we strengthen our testimony?
We played a game about testimonies called Testimony Time from Finch Family Games.
For a treat we had pumpkin chocolate chip cookies because my DS9 likes them.

Parable of the Popcorn

Behold at the time of harvest, the ears of corn did bring forth kernels which were dried and prepared for the Popper’s hand. And then it was that the Popper did take the kernels, all that did appear alike unto Him, and applied the oil and the heat.And it came to pass that when the heat was on, some did explode with promise and did magnify themselves an hundred fold. And some did burst forth with whiteness which did both gladden the eye and satisfy the taste of the Popper. And likewise some did pop, but not too much. Behold, there were some that didlie there, and even though the Popper’s heat was alike unto all, some did just bask in the oil and keep everything that they had unto themselves.And so it came to pass that those which had given of themselves did bring forth much joy and delight to many munchers. But those which kept of the warmth and did not bring forth were only cast into the pail and thought of with hardness and disgust.And thus we see that in the beginning all appear alike, but when the heat is on, some come forth and give all, while others fail their purpose and become as chaff, so as to be discarded and forgotten.

Peaches

Last week we found a really good deal on peaches so we bought quite a few. I was able to can 6 quarts and 10 pints. It really didn’t take too long once I got going. I saved some to make peach butter with but it didn’t work. If anyone has good recipe for peach butter, apple butter or pear butter, I’d really like to try them.

Bunk beds

DD6 had a bunk bed with a futon underneath. DD2 needed a bed also so we got a new bunkbed. It has given them both so much more room to play. Both girls seem happy with it so Mom is happy.

July 31, 2008 after the children arrived home, we took a trip to Starvation Reservoir. My extended family goes every year to catch crawdads but this is only the second year we have gone. It was hot, sticky and there were quite a few mosquitoes trying to make us their dinner. My uncle, my brother, two nephews, one niece, my sister and brother-in-law also went.
