Reality Quote

You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

~The Late Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931 to 2005 former pastor of Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis, TN.

Judah Plays Piano

Judah is the budding musician in the Strang family! He continually jumps back and forth from playing the violin to playing the piano. In this movie he ended up being caught on film playing the piano (last time it was violin!) with big "Bub-Ba"! Just in case you were wondering (or could hear above Judah's musical masterpiece)... Jordan is playing Do You Believe by Justin Booher. Enjoy the video!

A Valentine Note For Your Brother...

What a blessing to have three sweet sisters to teach you how to make valentines. Here is the "Valentine Making Tutorial" that the girls made for Jordan since he would rather take care of chickens than make them valentines! Note that his Mother gets a lovely Valentine from him each and every year!

Happy Valentine's Day!

An Evening of Fellowship and Fun!

We had the pleasure to have the Knifong and Ashmore families come to our house for dinner. We had a great time together! (And we got some great pictures too!)


All the Fathers and Mothers talking together.
Ben wanted me to take a picture of him. This was his pose!
It's time for a good game of "Cat Calls Dog"! (At least that's what we think the game is called!) So watch the action unfold!
Troy (who's animal was a donkey) is making a dash to tag another animal.

Ava (the Chicken) ready to tag the Cat (Shiloh) or the Dog (Jordan). Dog is trying desperately to "point the finger" at someone else or in other words Cat!

Yes, there was a Cat and Dog fight going on! And much to the delight of the Cat, she triumphed!

Me (Mouse) striving desperately to call another animal's name. Whew! I made it that time...


Mouse and Rabbit (Jamie Lyn) are in the line of fire! No, I didn't make it this time.

Brie Ella (in the middle) our goat and Eden our horse (on the far right).

Jamie Lyn played her violin while every sang some worship songs together.

I had the pleasure of being Jamie Lyn's piano accompaniment. It was a lot of fun. Good job Jamie Lyn!
Everyone singing.
Us four Strang children are learning to sing in four-part harmony. This is a picture of us singing together!

Quick update on Judah

Greetings Everyone!!

We thank you all for your prayers for our Judah! He does have pneumonia in the left lobe of his lung but it is not that bad and we are very grateful to the Lord for that! We ve kept him quiet (interesting trying to keep a 2 year old quiet) and have been blessing him with lots of healthy food and lots of good rest. He is looking better and his breathing is much better! Thank You, Jesus!! We will be back to blogging soon!

God be with you all!
