John and Carol

  It is true that on any given day someone can come into our life that is there for just a short period of time and then they are gone. The meeting maybe as profound as two families meeting in the waiting room of a hospital awaiting the birth of a grandchild or simply a happenstance like sitting on the same bench at a park.  The outcome of these chance encounters are as varied as the … Read entire article »

Is this really happening!?!

Is this really happening!?!

Yesterday (8-17-11) I went with Erin to her OB appointment in Birmingham. Erin and I have always been really close. We are 2 years apart, always shared a room growing-up. If there was a toy we were given that was the same she would get the pink and I’d get the blue. I remember, especially now, the time when we were little girls and we would stuff pillows in our shirts to look like we … Read entire article »

Tractor Ride

Tractor Ride

Good Morning!  It is Tuesday, August 16th.  We have had quite a hot summer this year and it has caused us to miss out on a lot of normal summer time activities.  Our garden work gets done and then we head inside – the heat is dangerous this year.  But yesterday was a most welcome surprise.  The high was only 83 and the humidity was very low so we were able to actually go out … Read entire article »

So Small but So Big

   It’ Sunday afternoon and I’m sitting at my desk. On the other side of the door is a room full of ladies who have come to celebrate new life. There is a baby shower today for Erin and Andy’s new son who is due to arrive in less than a month. Babies are tiny things who come into this world in a big way. For the nine months before they show up there is much to do from friends and family. The noise shows that excitement is here!      This won’t be our first grandbaby. In fact, it will be our fifth. And still there is excitement at this new life. I wonder about him and what trials he will go through. I wonder what he will experience in life … Read entire article »

August 8, 2011

I can’t believe it!! It’s really coming!! Boy, I feel different!! Okay, I’ll let you in on the secret! I will be 20-years-old in 18 days!!! Wow, what a big number. I still see myself at nine, barefoot, running up-hill through the woods, carrying a sword (stick) and riding a horse (also a stick), waving a banner I just made out of some (hopefully) unwanted fabric of my mother’s, screaming at the top of my … Read entire article »

I don’t like Change

Did you ever notice how many changes there are in life? Well, the only thing that is sure in this world is change. Just when i get comfortable shoes i seem to wear them out and need more. I always resist change. We have been on the same website and email for ten years now. When we started we were the only Shepherds Hill in a worldwide search. Now, there are sub-divisions in Australia, youth camps and others that show up in the search. We recently made the change and obtained our own domain to better identify who we are and to give more versatility with photographs. I hope those who have been following us for years (friends and lurkers alike) will be able to find our new site. What … Read entire article »

New, New, New

Amazing, isn’t it?!!  There is always something new going on!!  But I cannot complain.  God is so gracious, merciful and faithful.  As you can see we have been hard at work on this new website.  Our other website has been a big part of our lives for over 10 years, but it had become so difficult to update and maintain that we were not able to keep it up over the last year.  Now, hopefully, we will be much better equipped to share things with folks online.  Right now, much of my time has been learning how to build a site from the basics.  In that process, we have all been moving things over from the old site and learning much in the effort.  Still a few more things to be moved … Read entire article »

Just Thinking

NEW, NEW, NEW!  So much new stuff to do!!  As you can see we are making some big changes as far as our website goes.  The old site had been part of our lives for over 10 years and it had become so difficult to update and maintain, we knew there had to be a change.  This new site is harder to set up but hopefully will be MUCH easier to maintain.  More pictures, quicker entries and even videos!!  Praise the Lord.  Our family has wanted to share so many things as the Lord teaches us and now, with His Help, we can do it. Please do keep us in prayer as we learn the new system and try to make this as helpful and easy to manuever as possible! We … Read entire article »
