The Lord Will Provide

Genesis 22:2 "Take now your son, your only son, whom you love, Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah; and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I will tell you."
2 Chronicles 3:1 "Then Solomon began to build the house of the Lord in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah."
"Abraham's sacrifice of Isaac was to foreshadow all the sacrifices that would later be offered in this place, which in turn were types and shadows of the one great Sacrifice that would be offered one day nearby, when the Father would offer the Son as the Saviour of the world" The Genesis Record by Henry M Morris.
Genesis 22:2 "your only son, whom you love" - John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life"
Gen 22:14 "And Abraham called the name of that place The Lord Will Provide". A wonderful prophecy of faith that, in the fullness of time, God would provide the Lamb to die for man's sins, just as He had provided a ram to take Isaac's place on the altar. - John 1:29 "Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world."
And I could probably go on and on. It's one of my favorite passages to just read and read and flip to the New Testament and sit in awe and thanks at all that God has done.
It was nice to have Dad around to help with the craft.
After church this morning we joined one of the families for lunch. Hannah had a great time with Jan. And although she spent a bit of time in her cot she did not want to sleep. So we had a very tired girl by the end of the day and so they all headed for bed early.
We had lovely fresh fish that Steve and his son had caught yesterday. The younger two boys had a great time playing with our younger two girls. It included loads of running around and laughing and was fun for us all.
While we were there Brendon had a look at their sow. They have been expecting her to farrow for a while now but were feeling that the time was getting closer. They were right and we got a call from them this evening to say that she had 4 little piglets. Brendon had said to me when we left that she is close to farrowing but will probably have a very small litter. Spot on Brendon. He could give them some advice on how to look after them and they appreciated all the little tips he could give.
This afternoon we headed out to the pig farm but when we got there the gate had already been closed (the reason Brendon has his overall on). So on the way home we stopped by the river and let the girls have a play.
We quickly realised Brendon was the only one without gumboots (he was going to get the ones at the office) - so we quickly changed positions.
The girls had a wonderful time. I can see us coming here quite often on hot summer days.
The games these two got up to. They really enjoyed it.

It was quite windy - so Brendon speaks quite loudly - but listen out for Hannah's sweet "no" answer. She is such a cutie.
It's been a week of Hannah wearing panties and she is doing so very well. We had gotten tired of having to take the nappy off every time she said she wanted to go - so even though she is only 20 months old, she was obviously ready. And Ruth is doing so well too. No nappies at all anymore (the night was a new change) and the accidents during the day have gone for good too. So we just have nappies for Hannah's sleep time. How nice.
