Peaceful Days at Home

So, we haven't quite been keeping up with our blog. Have no fear. It's only because we have been having a very peaceful winter at home. (In other words, doing nothing except for: school, cooking, cleaning, going on walks, helping with animals in the neighborhood, taking care of our own animals, and all the other usual things that normally go on in our household.) However, today is different. We are taking the day off of school (because its Saturday) to clean animal cages! Actually, don't get me wrong, I love cleaning the chicken coop. I have no idea why. Probably because I like the feeling I get of being able to go in there, and smell the sweet smell of wood shavings and straw. Aaah... lovely!

Description of today: the sun is shining brightly outside, The house is peaceful and quiet, and the chickens are pecking around at bugs (I doubt there are any alive). It is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL day today! (Actually, I think everyday is beautiful.) :)

Well, I'd better be going! Farewell to ya'll!

God's Creation

This world is so beautiful. I am amazed, everyday, as I see the sun set or rise, how creative God is. He made everything, from the huge elephant to the tiny mouse, from the ugly warthog to the beautiful and majestic horse. All His creation is so intricately designed. When I watch a horse gallop, with its mane flowing in the wind, I am simply speechless. Also, when I go outside to gather eggs, I think: God DEFINITELY has a sense of humor. So, as you sit outside this evening, watching the red and purple hues of the sun brighten up the fading blue sky, thank God for His wonderful and majestic creation. What a great God we serve!

How Great Thou Art

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.
When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration,
And then proclaim: "My God, how great Thou art!"

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

Best Friends

Hello!

Don't worry, this is the last time I will post today. I just HAD to put this up, because I thought it described exactly who my sisters were. This is a poem I found about friends:

The Best of Friends

The best of friends,
Can change a frown,
Into a smile,
when you feel down.

The best of friends,
Will understand,
Your little trials,
And lend a hand.

The best of friends,
Will always share,
Your secret dreams,
Because they care.

The best of friends,
Worth more than gold,
Give all the love,
A heart can hold.

I also wanted to put up some pictures of some great siblings. Here are a few:

Welcome to Our Blog

Hi Ya'll,

So, this is our new blog. We're four sisters who love each other, a lot. (I hope so) :) We like art, writing, math (not really), piano, history, horses, dogs, chickens, turtles, sewing, knitting, crocheting, reading, etc. The list goes on... We hope to do everything to the glory of God. We have chickens, a turtle, a dog, and a great family. We hope you enjoy reading about our life and the wonderful experiences and trials we have.

In Christ,

Sisters 4
