Our Daddy/Daughter Duo

Tonight, Justin had the privilege to once again escort Glory to the Valentine Daddy/Daughter Dance. Keelie and Kristi had spent the day making it very special for her including getting her a new haircut and also her nails done. Justin brought her flowers. She was so pretty and absolutely glowing!!

It blesses my heart to see that once "little boy" of mine grow up to be such a special dad! He's one of my heroes!

Molly Sage

It's so hard to realize our Molly Sage is now 6 months old! She is so cute. She's getting that little personality going, too. We love you, Molly!

RV Time Again

Rick and I escaped on Thursday in the RV. We went to Ray Roberts. Justin, Keelie and the kiddos drove over. It was such a beautiful day with temps in the 80s (unbelievable February weather)! After a relaxing afternoon, we went to Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch for pizza. That was pretty cool to enjoy our meal beside the bears. Throw in a little live music, and I would say it was about perfect!

Yesterday, we went shopping for Jerry a travel trailer. BINGO! We found one and have sent pics to him in Bangkok.

Today we went to Jonah's basketball game which just happened to be very close to our campsite in a nearby town. Afterwards, we went back to the RV place and bought the travel trailer for Jerry. We came home this afternoon. 

A blessed camping trip!

Selfie Overload!

Lord, Change My Attitude

My bible study group started this several weeks ago. It is soooo good!

Based on the Israelites' journey from Egypt to the promised land, James McDonald shows how attitudes can affect whether we stay in the wilderness with negative attitudes or whether we are delivered to enjoy the many blessings of the promised land with attitudes that honor God. 

Here is a look at our first few weeks:

Week 1 - we looked at replacing a complaining attitude...

Week 2 - with Thankfulness

Week 3 - we looked at replacing a covetous attitude...

Week 4 - with Contentment

The videos are great that we watch together, and then the weekly homework is SO worth diving into! Thank you, Lord, for what you are teaching us through this study!

Weekend "Thankfuls"

Jonah and Glory stayed with me Friday evening while Justin, Keelie, and Molly went out to dinner. I surprised them with a chocolate pie. After Jonah got through with his basketball practice, we went to watch the high school basketball games.

Saturday evening we all had a family meal to celebrate birthdays (Keelie, Justin & John).

Yesterday Jared, Jenna, and Marlow went with us to church and out to eat. Later in the afternoon Rickie brought his tractor and plowed the garden.

And to top off the weekend, we had beautiful weather.

This gap of years went so quickly!

Love him!
