No Time

Posted by Victoria



No time to knock on Love’s wide door,

No time to stay and talk awhile.

No time to calm the anxious fear,

No time to go that extra mile.


No time to make a sad soul sing,

No time to edge dark clouds with light.

No time to act a bit concerned,

No time to cheer, “Faith wins the fight!”


No time to be a treasured friend,

No time to help that troubling need.

No time to look beyond one’s self,

No time to hear the lonely plead.


No time to say, “God understands,”

No time to share a tender prayer,

No time to beg, “Dear Heart, forgive!”…

…Dear Heart is now no longer there!


By our Great- Grandmother, Cornelia Huntsman Conn




This past week,  we had the joy of spending a few days with our dear friends, the Kendalls. As I look back on the weekend, I am constantly being reminded that these times of encouragement with like-minded believers are not to be taken for granted. How thankful I am for God’s blessings, especially those that come in the form of friends!

Abundant Goodness

“I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever. Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever… The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.” Psalm 145:1,2,9

In His abundant goodness, the Lord saw fit to bless us with the superb encouragement of a Memorial Day weekend visit from a large portion of the Wilkesteam. It was such a delight to have them here… games, a strenuous hike in the Fires’ Creek area, an evening around the fire pit, sweet fellowship, and just being together again made the visit simply precious.

End of School Year Picnic

Posted by Jessica



Such an exciting time of year this is – not only are the flowers blooming and the grass turning green, but the school books are being finished, closed, and put away, and the school room is being refreshed for the next semester.

Beautiful cupcakes were prepared, because cake seems to complete a celebration. :)

Well, a few weeks ago we took an evening to celebrate. Finishing a year of school is not something small, so we went out as a family for a picnic along a peaceful river.

Congratulations, Team!! We’re looking forward to watching you continue to “grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.” (2 Peter 3:18)
