A Wedding (And A Week In TN)

First off: Sorry that I didn't post last Wednesday. I sort of have a good excuse. Well, not really. I should have prepared a post still. But anyways, here's my excuse!!! Enjoy!!!

This last week found me in my other life - TN!!! Once I got there, it almost seemed I had never left! It was a week full of fun, excitement, friends, and more. Too much happened - it almost felt like a month of fun!!!!!

Here are some of my favorite pictures while there - spotlights of fantastic memories!


I can rarely get Cherish (the girl on the far right) to take pictures.. but on my last day she decided to be nice :) and she put a lot of energy into those photo's. LOL We three girls went on an early morning hike/ walk and really got to catch up, laugh, sing, and just have fun :)

Meeting friends at the airport! Some were old friends, some new :) I was so excited to see the little girl on the right!

One of my best friends and secret-keepers. I got to spend a day at her house. It was so great to see the wonderful person again.

I had never met Aliisa before, but I spent a lot of my time with her while there. Partly because we shared a bunk, but also because she was so sweet and nice :)

All the ruby girls that attended Meadow's wedding!!!! Plus Serene's husband, Sam, in the background, lol. Three of the girls are married now (two have kids), two of the girls are pretty much engaged, and a handful of the rest were looking promising ;)

Another of my best friends with her adorable baby! On several occasions we were seen sneaking into a one person restroom so she could feed Ezzy and we could still talk. Might have looked awkward - but it was fun ;)

Last time I stayed in TN the older girl and her mom lived next-room to me. My I missed them!!! And they had another little girl while I was gone! It was sooooo nice to see them :)

Some of my all time favorite little girls :)

Back to the times when I'd steal his hat and he'd make faces... this guy is hilarious.

And of course, I had to get a selfie with the bride! Oh, she was gorgeous! You could tell Meadow was a model :)


The wedding was fantastic - it rained half way through the service. so we all had to run inside and finish the ceremony there. But it was great (though no-one had great hair or make-up anymore ;b).
There were so many people to see! So much laughing. So much fun! And a lot of dancing, too!!!!

And the groom's men did this dance for Meadow - Oh, my! It was so well-done... and funny! If you really want to see the dance I posted the video on my facebook.

And the rest of the week? It was awesome! I got to spend so much time with friends, help hem the flower girls' dresses, help Aliisa "coordinate" the rehearsal and we had a couple things to do on the wedding day also, and stay up way too late!!!!!!

It was great ;)

I love discussions, but nothing mean — I post a lot of opinionated articles, and I'd love to know YOUR opinions, even if they oppose mine. But, please, no insulting. Be nice and let's get to know one another ~ Keturah

Living Like The Amish: Interviews With Three "English" Families PART I

Many people are obsessed with the Amish.
I know at one time I was as well, and to a degree I still am.
But my perception  has changed with experience.

It started a long time ago when my family went to an Amish-held auction (no, it's not a place where you can buy Amish children, but a place where you can buy things from the Amish). I was eleven years old and enthralled to be surrounded by so many Amish. I loved the cockscomb flowers they sold everywhere. I bought a whole box for $2 and dried them for seeds so I could plant my own.
But then I experienced my first reality shock concerning the Amish.
I had assumed since they lived a simpler life everything about them was completely old-fashioned and natural.
Imagine my horror when I saw Amish walking around with soda cans and store-bought ice cream.

"Mom," I said. "He's drinking soda!" 


During my years living with the Amish I learned a lot about them. As individuals. As a culture. And about their history. Recently…

Inside The Land Of The Free

Hello.
My name is Greg. 
I have a lot of time to think. Too much time. Sometimes I think about my life - why I am sitting in prison. I wonder what I could have done different - my life plays before my eyes.
"If only..."
But even I know that no amount of good works would have stopped tyranny from finding fault with me.
It is cold.
My clothes are thin.
My stomach is empty - occasionally filled with food of no sustenance. 
I hide my face in my knees - as if that will somehow protect me from the horrors of this dark cold dungeon. 
They keep it cold to freeze me, this I know.
It is a part of their game - to drive a lesson into me.
As if I have a lesson to learn solely because I was convicted.
Convicted, but not  guilty.
Years. 
68 years for standing against injustice.
How many years have I sat in here?
I have forgot.
All I know is this question, "Was I fated for this? Did God grant my birth just so I could spend life as if dead?"
I cry out to God - does He hear me?
I do not know. I can no…

It Doesn't Take a Genius to Recognize Corruption

After attending the writer's conference I had the opportunity to spend a week with my dad in Las Vegas (we went to federal court trials).
I don't usually speak much of his work as I'm not sure all what to say about it. He keeps the public updated with what's happening in court, with all the many men locked up that he's trying to help out. I think he said there are like 19 guys right now that he is specifically trying to help release. 
{If any of you have heard of the Bundy Ranch Stand Off, you'll know a little of what he is doing}
I won't go into too much detail with his work. I will say if you want to know more of how to help out and learn what's going on just do some googling - my dad's name is John Lamb. You should be able to find plenty on him ;p
Anyways, I was quite shocked the first day.
Security didn't surprise me at all. Very much like an airport ;p  Except, most of the security was actually nicer ;) I was very pleased with security as far …

I'm Not Into Politics, But...

“Hey, did you hear what's happening with those guys in Oregon from Malheur Refuge?”
“No. Tell me about it!”
“A bunch of guys felt that their rights as US citizens were being violated, so they decided to take back a bit of land for the “people” as a sign to the federal government to back off, and now they are all facing years to life in prison for 'terrorism' and-” My words slow down as I see the person's face slowly becomes void of emotion. Bored? Or do they not like what I'm saying…? Have I just lost a friend? What did I say????




“Oh. Yeah.. I'm not really into politics.” They say.
“Oh, OK.” I say. But inside something feels wrong. Not into politics???
Hey, I hate politics. I despise them. So much stress, and fighting, and corruption. But… it's a part of life. Or is it???
What if I told you Fred's barn just burned down and we were going to go do some things to encourage him and help him out. Get some guys to rebuild it. Make him some meals. You, know, …
