Our Family 2 Yours

Hi there, we are so glad you stopped by to see us. We hope you will Turn the Pages Of  Our Family 2 Yours and look around. 

First off  let me tell you a little bit about us. We raised our family in Oregon  in a 22 room Farmhouse. It was a Wonderful House.  We had 2200 Asian  Pear Trees. ( I helped plant them all!) on 10 acres of ground.  There was lots  of room for the kids to run and play and work. We each had kids of our own and took on the responsibility of having a lot of Foster Kids in our home. (We Had Yours, Mine, and Theirs)  

 We put up a big above ground pool and had lots of fun in the summertime as a family. We had a play set with swings and a sandbox. The kids all had bikes and we spent lots of hours outdoors.

We raised cows, a peacock, rabbits, lambs, pygmy goats, and a llama.  We also had dogs, a cat named Ben, that loved to lay on the waterbed, and gerbils until they multiplied so much they had to leave. 

It was everything we believe families need to experience with lots of love everyday. When we moved to the farm we had a piano.  Well sometimes things happen and it fell out of the truck (husband did not tie it in right, just saying ) and there went the piano.

Well we had the opportunity to get a player piano that was 100 years old that played beautifully.  As a family we would get around the piano and sing and make more memories. As I look back on those days I hope all the kids remember those times. 

We grew a HUGE garden and we canned everything we could. From peaches, pears, applesauce, pickles, grape juice, cherries, and more. I had a man come out and cried when he saw our pantry because he said it was just like his mama use to do. He said they knew the family would make it through the winter with all that food. 

All of our kids are grown now with children of their own and that means we are grandparents. We Love It!!  Our kids are scattered all over the United States and sometimes it is so hard to see everyone. But it is great we have so many ways to stay in touch with all of them.

We hope we can help you with tips and help in raising your own FAMILIES.

“The Old Paths”

I liked the old paths, when Moms were at home.
Dads were at work.

Brothers went into the army. And sisters got married BEFORE having children! Crime did not pay; Hard work did;And people knew the difference.Moms could cook;

Dads would work;
Children would behave.
Husbands were loving;
Wives were supportive;
And children were polite.
Women wore the jewelry;
And Men wore the pants.
Women looked like ladies;
Men looked like gentlemen;
And children looked decent.
People loved the truth,
And hated a lie.
They came to church to get IN,
Not to get OUT!
Hymns sounded Godly;
Sermons sounded helpful;
Rejoicing sounded normal;
And crying sounded sincere.
Cursing was wicked; Drugs were for illness.
The flag was honored;
America was beautiful;
And God was welcome!
We read the Bible in public;
Prayed in school;
And preached from house to house.To be called an American was worth dying for;

To be called an American was worth living for; To be called a traitor was a shame!lolh8k-lolh6301.n.marinefuneral.0719.mgI Still Like “The Old Paths” The Best.

“The Old Paths” was written by a retired minister who lives In Tennessee.”
