Faith's "Nature Club" Business

Faith had her first booth sale this past Saturday at the Tupelo "Green Festival." She worked so hard getting her necklaces ready, and she made people custom necklaces as they ordered them.
She is selling her "Scrabble" tile necklaces to earn money to buy a horse. I am so proud of her!
She named her business "Nature Club" because of her love of nature and horses. At the festival, she also had people sign up to join the "Nature Club" to be e-pals with her and receive newsletters (that she is writing herself) about nature, fashion, friends, and horses. If you want to receive this newsletter, send her an e-mail at

White Christmas

 Frosty wants to take Faith and John "Ice Fishing"
Merry Christmas from the Patton's

Psalm 147

1 Praise ye the LORD: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.
2 The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.
3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.
5 Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
6 The LORD lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the ground.
7 Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:
8 Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.
9 He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.
10 He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.
11 The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.
12 Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.
13 For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; he hath blessed thy children within thee.
14 He maketh peace in thy borders, and filleth thee with the finest of the wheat.
15 He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly.
16 He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.
17 He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?
18 He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow.
19 He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.
20 He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the LORD.

What is Love?

Love is not saying you would die for someone.. it is constantly dying for them.
I praise God today because He is the God of my mercy. There is nothing like knowing that you need Him, stop to find Him, and realize He's been carrying you all along. That is the joy of having a heavenly Father.

A picture of my wonderful nephew, Noah, and my,uh, o.k... wonderful brother, Josh! Love ya, bub!
 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.   Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. Romans 5:8-9

Faith's Scrabble Tile Necklaces

Faith is making scrabble tile necklaces to sell. She is trying to raise money to buy a horse. She is using a variety of pictures, including Christmas, Alice in Wonderland, and nature (butterfly/flowers) on the back of them. I am proud of her. I think they will sell well because they will make great Christmas presents!
I have told her she can get a horse when she earns the money for one, and she is holding me to it!
