Two Years....and still in Love!

Two years ago today we pledged the rest of our lives to each other... What an exciting day that was!!!! Now, two years later we are even more in love, and even more thrilled to spend the rest of our lives together! It has been an exciting and thrilling two years, and the Lord has blessed us over and over. We know that our love is as strong as it is because we have invited and KEPT God as the center of our home... I love you sweetie!!

Weekend with Family

Usually we are the ones who do the travelling and visiting with our family. It's a rare occasion when our family gets to come visit us! But this past weekend my husband's mom and dad got to come down for a long weekend visit. We took them to a few of the "local" sights since they don't get down here very often. Williamsburg, of course, is always one that everyone wants to go see! :0) So we spent a day in that area seeing the sights and enjoying the unexpected beautiful weather. We also got to take them to the Crystal Concert in Colonial Williamsburg to hear Dean S (I'm not going to try to spell his last name...) play his glass instruments. We also visited the Yankee Candle Outlet in Williamsburg area as well.... much to my father-in-laws chagrin... ;0)

This elephant was at the Yankee Candle Outlet and I thought he was cute so...

We left them there while we went, just kidding! ;0)

Corbin's Visit from Ghana Africa

Jason, Becky and Joel Corbin were at our church for a deputation service on Sunday night. They spent the night with us, and so the next day they had some time, so we were hoping to take them somewhere for a day of fun...however, it dawned a rainy, yucky day, so we had to change our plans a little... We decided on going to Bass Pro Shop since Joel was hoping for a Cabela's and that was the closest we had around here! :0) Plus, my husband and I had never been there, and we figured it was the perfect solution to our rainy day! We really enjoyed our afternoon with them there and Joel had a blast looking at all the neat things, and getting to "shoot" some targets upstairs! (It was laser type guns) All in all, it turned out perfect, and everyone seemed to have a really good time!

Me and Joel--he was driving us! LOL
Joel and his daddy shooting targets Not too bad of a shot... for a 5 yr old! :0)

He wasn't too sure about this bear at first...but since daddy was holding him, he was ok with it!

Happy Mother's Day!

I realize that Mother's Day was yesterday, however, I didn't think it would hurt anything to post my Mother's Day post today... :0) I have a very special lady in my life that I affectionately call "mom"...she has been there for me through all the bumps and scrapes of life, and somehow still managed to love me unconditionally. We are best of friends; and for those of you who know us well, you know that we are almost EXACTLY alike! ;0) Even now that I'm "all grown up", my mom is someone who I call often for advice and just to talk... I love you mom! You are the best!!

Spring Revival

For our Spring Revival this year we had Brian and Sherri Spangler. We had a wonderful week with them in our home; however, the best part of the week was God's presence felt in each of the services. It was just a wonderful week with such refreshing services! While they were here we took them to Williamsburg and showed them around, which they really enjoyed.

My husband drinking a bottled rootbeer...we got a kick out of him walking around with this "suspicious" bottle though, so had to take a picture :0)

IHC Trip

My husband and I were able to go to IHC this year for the first time since we had been there with our College Choirs. It was a good week, and the Lord really came in the last service in a special way.

Easter Sunday

On Easter Sunday our children had a mini-program. They sang some Easter songs and then played a song on the bells. They did a really good job and everyone enjoyed it. We were thankful for the good group of visitors that were there on that Sunday as well! We also have a "program" at our Church where the children can receive a Bible from the Church with their name on it if they come 6 sundays in a row. Well, Nicholas, one of our newer junior church children received his Bible on Easter Sunday. We are so glad to have each one of our children, and pray that God will speak to their little hearts.
