The corn is as high as an elephants' eye...

....and it looks like it's climbing clear up to the sky!

While the boys drove their noisy toys this evening (a 4-wheeler and a dirt-bike), my parents and I went for a walk. We went into the corn field a ways and were amazed at how tall it is, especially the part that didn't get hailed on. My dad can not reach the top of the corn stalks, and he's tall!

It was a quite, peaceful day here, and what a lovely rest we had. Mother played the piano for our weekly hymn singing time. Each week, all 5 of us pick a hymn to sing, although occasionally we sing more than that...

Now the crickets are singing. It must be harvest time!

dear Cora,

I'm glad y'all had a peaceful day. :) We usually sing hymns at our worship services on Sunday.

Since all us girls play piano, usually we each play about two... and the others sing or accompany with violin, as available. :) It's an enjoyable way to worship the Lord Jesus. I am thankful for the gift of music.
Be blessed, love Carra

Dear Carra~
I'm hoping you had a peaceful day as well today!
I didn't know you play violin. Do you ever post videos on your blog? It would be wonderful to hear you and your family play/sing!!!
Blessings to you too,

Dear Cora,
Sorry... I just noticed your comment. :) We haven't posted any videos on our blogs yet... but we're praying. In the Lord's time perhaps. :) Thank you Cora.
You are such an encouragement to me.
Much love, Carra
