I've been silent for awhile.
Yes, I know most of you are laughing at that.
Ok, silent on this blog! But life is happening and it's
just way too much fun to stop and try to post something.
Yet, I don't want to forget the delightful little moments
that make me want to freeze time and capture all the
amazing goodness of God and stick it in a frame
to be remembered every day.
Grace Diversified's first two concerts went.....
in my personal opinion, terrible. Everything that could
go wrong seemed to! God had other plans though and
blessed me through them both more than I thought possible.
Continue to say a prayer for our group in the days ahead.
We are so very excited for what is to come!
You have no idea how absolutely happy it makes me to
bless dear, sweet folks who don't get the privilege of hearing
good music on a regular basis. You have no idea how much fun
it is to watch your siblings get a kick out of singing to
absolute strangers :) I have never seen them, or myself have
so much fun with other programs. This one, for sure, has
taken the cake :)
This guy is.... a blast! Five years ago,
he was Jon and I's constant waiter at a lil Mexican
restaurant in town. Over the last few years,
we've had the privilege of getting to know him
and his sweet wife, only to find ourselves in their
living room a few weeks ago, playing 3D games :)
Be careful how you tip your next waiter... they may
end up being your next best friend!
Jon & his silly, dorky 3D glasses :)
Remember that wreath I was working on???
Slightly crooked here, but didn't cost me a dime :)
I'm in LOVE with our garden this year!
Not a weed in sight and everything looks sooo
This picture was from awhile ago, but I'm going
stir crazy! I so wish I hadn't quit working... I only
have a few summer students. So, that means that
all my time is spent organizing, cleaning, cooking,
working out and feeling like a lazy bum!
Maybe God has triplets in my future?
These kids graduated. I know! I want to cry too.
I used to tie their lil shoes... at least I can still cut
their hair :)
I love this picture. These kids have all been through
a LOT this year. Yet, just the other night, one of
them reminded Jon and I how good God has been.
Say a prayer for them, please. Pray for the men of our
generation. They are hit on every side by a million
distractions. A thousand disappointments. A hundred
We had a little stroke scare with this marvelous lady
over Memorial Day. It was a reminder to keep
short hold of grudges. To stop and take a picture; for
next birthday, she may not be here. To listen to
every word that comes out of her beautiful self.
Another lil "Fender Bender" with above brother
was also a good reminder that God is indeed watching
over His own. That every time my husband gets in
his truck, he may not come back. To keep my words
and actions in check. To hold on tight, and to forgive.
On the baby front, our lil person
has eight weeks left before they
make their appearance :)
