For those of you who are new to 4 Seests in Paradise -- WELCOME!
Our URL is relatively new, beginning October 2012! If you're here, you know that though *_*
EweRLuvd.COM *_*

Where did 2014 go?? It was very busy, from my being hospitalized in January, losing 30 pounds on the "G.E.R.D. Diet", the Seest Family Reunion in Minnesota in June, being hired as the 5th Grade teacher at our local Christian School where the children are attending (instead of homeschool for Caleb's senior year *_*). What a busy, blessed year!! got very, very busy in June of 2014 when we prayerfully accepted a teaching position at a local Christian school! Yes, I'm now a 5th Grade School Teacher!!!! I am still updating and editing this webpage, my linkware graphics, and our church homepage *_* But do please let me know when you find an error or broken link!

We have a Bravenet Guest Map, for our guests to make their mark, letting us know where in the world you are from!
Feel free to just leave your first name, favorite verse, and comments for privacy sake *_*

Just in case you don't know, I edit our homepage DAILY. Most of the pages have a "Last Updated" date at the top *_* I hope this helps! graphics site -- Caleb's Country Corner -- is updated regularly, with new & improved pretties for your enjoyment *_*
One of the most popular items at Caleb's Country Corner is the calendar quilt, which you can see the current month's "patch" below *_*

I have decided to get back into updating and posting new material here and at my graphics site. For a couple of years I was too ill to be doing this regularly. I also was very discouraged that so many "can go wrongs" were going wrong (mostly the voting buttons at the bottom of all 600+ pages, but sometimes the whole SITE going offline for indefinite periods of time!!)

When I first began 4 Seests in Paradise in December of '97, the site was more of a photo album for family. I added some themed pages here and there over the next few months, then was given the challenge, "I can see from your family homepage that you are a Christian, but you could be much more blatant about it" *_*

4 Seests in Paradise is not a blog / online journal, although every page has HEART and testimony woven throughout. I am eagerly anticipating getting back to regular updates and devotional postings here. I look forward to the opportunity to be a blessing to you!

Well, 4 Seests in Paradise is NOT "new" *_*
Praise the LORD, we have been online since 1997!
I started our family homepage when Daniel was stationed aboard the USS GREENEVILLE (SSN 772) in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Caleb wasn't even a year old, and Lydia wasn't even a twinkle *_* When we found out she was on the way, we "announced" it by changing our homepage name from "3 Seests in Paradise" to "3 Seests in Paradise (& 1 on a Submarine)", which became "4 Seests in Paradise in February of 1999 *_*

No Accident - A Historical Novel of Enduring Romance
There are no 'accidents' with God in control....
Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
~ I Peter 4:12 & 13

Our Refuge - A Historical Novel of Enduring Romance
GOD is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.... ~ Psalm 46:1

A Time of War - A Historical Novel of Enduring Romance
To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace....
~ Ecclesiastes 3:1 & 8

Never Forsaken - A Historical Novel of Enduring Love
And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee. ~ Psalm 9:10

Feel free to save and post them on your homepage, linking to: for No Accident for Our Refuge for A Time of War for Never Forsaken

This one thing I have learned through our time of trials in 2005 & 2006...oh, and now 2007 & 2008 *_*:
JEHOVAH Jireh - The LORD will Provide.
So many times in my life, I have said that. I have believed that. Yet I saw the paychecks coming in. I was seeing Him provide through my Dad, through my own labor, through my husband / the Navy. Now, I see God providing through so many different vessels, and I am humbled to tears... albeit, tears of deep joy. Our God, Whom we serve with a willing heart, is providing for us; and I cannot thank Him enough.

Hugs to you, to all my brothers and sisters in Christ who have prayed so faithfully. Praying friends and family are more precious than gold in a time of need.

PRAISE THE LORD! I just got permission from Kim Moore--a songwriter--to include the lyrics to her song in the ninth book in The Bennett Vignettes, Run the Race.

God Makes No Mistakes

My life I give to You, O Lord.
Use me, I pray.
May I glorify Your precious name
In all I do and say.
Let me trust You in the valley dark
As well as in the light,
Knowing You will always lead me;
Your will is always right!

I know God makes no mistakes.
He leads in evíry path I take
Along the way thatís leading me to Home.
Though at times my heart would break,
Thereís a purpose in evíry change He makes:
That others would see my life
And know that God makes no mistakes.

And when someday in Heavín above
I see His dear face,
May I then be counted faithful
As a runner in this race.
But now Iím trusting in the Savior
To show me the way.
In His righteousness He guides me,
As I seek to please Him day by day.

I know God makes no mistakes.
He leads in evíry path I take
Along the way thatís leading me to Home.
Though at times my heart would break,
Thereís a purpose in evíry change He makes:
That others would see my life and know that God...
Our God makes no mistakes.
I know....

Okay, did anyone notice all of the "Sewing Bees"?

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." Proverbs 16:24

It is said of the virtuous woman "in her tongue is the law of kindness" (Proverbs 31:26b)
I've also heard that we need to keep our words "sweet" because we may have to EAT them some day! ...kind of makes the pet name "honey" a very "sweet" compliment *_*
Bee SWEET!!!
