Morel 1
It’s that time of year again.  This is about the third batch of morels that we have harvested this season.  Not a lot, but enough for an enjoyable little snack.  Lightly floured and sautéed in butter – there is nothing quite like them.

I am always amazed at these mysterious, little, woodland delicacies – how, primarily, they only grow in the wild, how they pop up to full maturity literally overnight, though never under the gaze of a curious eye, and how they are seemingly as transient as a spring storm over the Kansas plains.

Often while hunting morels, the words of the psalmist come to my mind, when he declared;

O Lord, how manifold are your works!
 In wisdom have you made them all…”  Psalm 104:24

Indeed, in wisdom God made all that was made – even the curiousdelectable…morel.

New “Sing & Say” Page

We have added a new page here at Family, Faith & Home that we hope you and your family will find fun, enjoyable and in some cases, for the little ones, even educational.  It is our Sing & Say page.  There you will find lots of videos with Jim and some of the kids doing sing-a-long songs, as well as a few of me with the kids learning through rhymes.  We will be adding to the list of videos we already have there, so be sure to check back regularly.

“He Lifted Me” Free Downloads Today

His brow was pierced with many thorns 
His hands by cruel nails were torn 
When from my guilt and grief forlorn 
In love He lifted me

As we think, in a focused way, on Christ’s crucifixion today, we are making the song file and lead sheet to the song “He Lifted Me” available as free downloads at, Jim Spencer Music.

Blessings to you, as you remember His death today, and as you celebrate His glorious resurrection this Sunday!
