Can the days get any crazier

In two days Ethan and Matt will step into the baptismal pool. I am getting so excited to see Ethan be obedient in baptism. I hope we've explained enough to him that he gets the significance of Sunday. I'm grateful to you all who will be there supporting him and showing him you love him.

VBS is coming up fast and at times it seems like a speeding train, one I hope doesn't get derailed. Chris O and I are talking many times a day and the computer is always in use. I can really use your prayers over this next month for patience, perseverance and faith that Gods will and timing will be evident and accomplished. Also prayer that I will make the time my kids need and not push them away in my desire to make it all work out perfectly.

If you don't hear from me too much this month know I promise to be back at least by July but hopefully I'll be better and get on once in a while.

pictures from our Colorado trip

Matt and I took a weeks vacation recently. What a blessing to spend that time with just him, unwinding, delighting in each other. Here are just few of the many pictures we took.

Happy Anniversary Sweetheart

13 years ago I married the perfect fit to my personal nuttiness... thank you for the past years, they have gotten sweeter and sweeter. I love you and look forward to many many more years together.

Those who love deeply never grow old, they may die of old age, but they die young.

Marriage is more than finding the right person, it's being the right person

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self‑seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
-1 Corinthians 13: 4-8, 13
