Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Psalm 126:5-6

Missing Nebraska

 A friend from Omaha sent me these pictures today and it brought back many fond memories of our days in Nebraska and Iowa. This top one is of Kharis sitting in the tire swing at our church. So thankful the Lord placed us there for a season. It was a wonderful church family and we miss them dearly.
This picture of Brecken is of her swimming at our dearest friends the Cherry's. They became family to us and we have many great memories of spending time with all of them. Can't wait for May when we will all be back together again.

This is a picture of Uriah sitting on our Pastor's lap. I think it was at a graduation but I am not sure. I just love this picture because this is who Pastor Larry was, a man who loved children. The children in the church would flock to him and he would never turn them away. Remind you of someone? Jesus loved the little children , well so did Pastor Larry.

Thanks Valerie for sharing. Missing all of you back in Iowa and Nebraska. Can't wait until May when we come to visit.

Happy 16th Birthday

I can't believe that 16 years ago today I gave birth to my first child. She was a little girl and mommy was so excited. She had thick black hair and big brown eyes. Her father and I were in awe. Well 16 years later we are still in awe. She is a beautiful young lady who loves the Lord and seeks to live her life according to His will. I am so blessed and so thankful to call her my daughter.

        Happy Birthday Emily. I love you and am so very proud of you!!!
