21 This I recall to my mind, Therefore I have hope.
22 Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. 24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him!”
25 The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, To the soul who seeks Him.
On Friday, January 24th we celebrated Caleb's 5th birthday! What a joy and delight it is to have Caleb. He is silly, quiet and noisy at times. He is thoughtful and observant of ALL that goes on in our family!
We had our Joy Homeschool Group over for a day of sledding and birthday cake. What a blast! There were 5 of us moms with 16 kids amongst all of us! Here are a few of the pictures from our day of enjoying this winter weather.

On Saturday, Dad Bailey brought his fabricated log splitter he designed and built for Tim. The coolest part to this splitter is that a lot of other hands helped out too. Andy, Tim's brother and Perry, the brother-in-law played a large part in this lovely machinery as well.
As some of you know, we have quite a few acres of land. With this land is our lovely house and with this house is an outdoor wood furnace that takes a LOT of wood. Last year we went through nearly 22 cords of wood as it was an exceptionally long winter. This year, we are trying to gather at least 20+ cords of wood....right now we have around 16-17. This "BEAST" will help us out a lot!
Thanks Dad and Mom Bailey & Family for taking real good care of us!
