Check out the kittens that we are Fostering! Do you know anyone ready for a new kitten or 3?

August 11, 2012 2 comments

I have told you about EASEL before.  They are a great local organization right across the river from us in Ewing, NJ.  They rescue animals and provide services to find homes for animals that come to the Ewing Animal Shelter run by the township.    http://www.easelnj.org

It is kitten season!

We are fostering 3 six month old kittens.  Do you know anyone who wants a loving and sweet cat or 3?

We love them, but our purpose is to get them a forever home – 1, 2, or 3 homes!

If you know anyone in Mercer or Bucks Counties that would be interested, please let us know.

We only have photos of the first 2 brothers that we got the first day right now.  I don’t really see all 3 of them at the same time very often, and my hands are busy when I am with them!  I will get help to take more photos and video next week.

They are 3 beautiful grey tabbies, brothers.  Already fixed.  Very good about the litter box, and sweet.  Very quiet kittens, so far!

American History is so interesting!! Old Barracks Museum – Trenton, NJ

June 9, 2012 2 comments

Sally with Mr. Patterson, our wonderful guide for the afternoon


I really enjoy history, and love living in such a rich area for American History.  We will never run out of museums, parks, and interesting places to visit in the Delaware Valley and Philadelphia!

Learn lots more about the museum and the history at their website http://www.barracks.org/.

Richard Patterson, Executive Director of the Old Barracks Museum

We were very fortunate to have a small tour group led by the Executive Director, Richard Patterson.  Wow, he is so smart and really brings history alive.

This museum is not far from “Washington Crossing”  that is of course on both sides of the Delaware River in PA and NJ.  Not far by car, but when the troops marched there in 1776 in the winter storms it was pretty far.  I can’t imagine it.

The tour starts with a really well done half hour movie about the war that uses re-enactors, art from the time, and stories that help to put everything into perspective.

Then you spend a while in different rooms of the museum learning about the way the men lived, what was happening at the time, and other great history tidbits.

There is a surgery room where Mr. Patterson taught us about smallpox and how General Washington made the decision to have his doctor expose his troops to a milder form of smallpox to protect them.  It was a long and unusual process that took almost a month to complete.  This was so interesting, and very advanced for the time.

I have wanted to visit this museum for years, but got the final motivation from the episode of “Who Do You Think You Are” with Rob Lowe.  He tracked an ancestor to the Hessian army housed in Trenton!  The episode is embedded here for you.

We were pleasantly surprised by the modern additions to accommodate people with disabilities! They have a clean and efficient lift to go to the 2 upper levels and the basement. Downstairs is a modern accessible rest room.

I highly recommend a visit to the Barracks!

The Beach for Easter

April 11, 2012 8 comments

We always love the beach!  We most enjoy off season beaches that are uncrowded.

Easter afternoon at Spring Lake, NJ was perfect, and there were dramatic skies on the way home.

Breathe lyrics

by Michael W. Smith

This is the air I breathe
This is the air I breathe
Your holy presence living in me

This is my daily bread
This is my daily bread
Your very word spoken to me

And I I’m desperate for you
And I I’m I’m lost without you

This is the air I breathe
This is the air I breathe
Your holy presence living in me

This is my daily bread
this is my daily bread
your very word spoken to me

And I’m, I’m desperate for you
And I’m, I’m lost without you

And I’m desperate for you
And I’m, I’m lost without you.

I’m lost without you.

I’m lost without you.

I’m desperate for you.

(Cry out to live)

I’m desperate for you..

I’m lost, I’m lost, I’m lost without you..
I’m lost without you

I’m desperate for you

The Simpsons share about their trip to Kenya

March 29, 2012 Leave a comment

We were not sure we were ready to leave the beautiful country of Kenya. The weather was gorgeous, the surroundings sometimes beautiful, sometimes moving, and the people were inspiring. Those we spent time with in Kenya were a blessing to us even as we tried to be a blessing to them.  Friday was especially emotional for us as we had to say goodbye to all of the babies we cared for and the little children we taught and spent time with.  But we are so grateful that our family had the opportunity to go to Kenya, serve God and His children,  learn from another culture, and experience much of the beauty there.
We want to thank our friends and family that helped us to get here by donating and praying for us. Every time we encouraged and loved a child or adult there, you were all with us. We are also grateful to those who donated items to give to the people in Kenya. Everything that was given, from coloring books and crayons to soccer balls, games, and clothes were all so well received and appreciated.  Every time we took out a coloring book or activity or ball, the children got so excited and had a blast with them.  This trip truly was a team effort, so thank you for being a part of the team.

Here are some of the highlights:

Taking care and loving the babies at Angels Home.  We connected with each one in a special way there.

Enjoying working at each one of the projects…interacting with the babies at Angels, helping teach and lead the preschoolers at LCC-K, and getting to know the kids that live at LCC’s children home.

Interacting with kids from a whole different country.

Going on safari and seeing wildlife in action in their natural habitat.  Also staying in a luxury tent right in the middle of the bush and having awesome Maasai guides and guards to take care of our stay there.

Meeting Winnie, our sponsored child of 11 years with Compassion Int’l.  She is doing phenomenally well!

(She was showing us all of the pictures she kept that we sent her over the years.)

Though the situation was looking dire and discouraging for baby Grace at Angels Home, she was rescued from her dehydration just in time when she was taken to the hospital and put on IV fluids immediately.  The baby orphanage staff were meeting with a nutritionist on Monday to learn about Grace’s needs (as well as some other babies there) to help them with malnutrition.  We are so grateful that God answered our prayers in ways that we

Spring Lake Beach visit, President’s Day 2012

February 22, 2012 6 comments

Feb 20, 2012 was cold and clear, about 30 degrees F in the afternoon!  Even then, there were a few surfers bold enough to go into the water!!

Spring Lake, NJ has been one of our favorite day trip spots for the 20ish years that we have lived in this area.  It takes just under an hour to get there, and is so clean and beautiful.

Photos that I took of the water and beach imported into a video:

Video footage of the waves, the sounds!

This is one of our special magical spots, and we go here all during the year, and nights as well.  It is always special.  The ocean and the air rejuvenate us, center us.

What are your special magical places that refresh your mind, body, and soul?

Let it Rain! – Worship Video

January 29, 2012 Leave a comment

Let it Rain – Michael W. Smith

Let it rain, let it rain.
Open the floodgates of Heaven
Repeat
The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad
Let the distance shores rejoice
Clouds and thick darkness surround him
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne
A fire goes before him and consumes his foes on every side
His lightning lights up the world
The earth sees and trembles
The mountains melt like wax before the Lord
Before the Lord of all the earth
The Heavens proclaim His righteousness
And all peoples will see His Glory

We want to see Your Glory, God!
Do you want to see His Glory?
Lift your voices, lift your hands!

Let it rain, let it rain.
Open the floodgates of Heaven
Repeat
