Prayers for Betsy....

Will you join me in praying for my old Bible Study Leader and friend? Please go to this link and read about precious Betsy Parkinson and pray to our Father for healing in her sweet body. What an extraordinary woman who has had an impact on so many lives...

Bathing Beauty

In honor of our upcoming vacation , I thought it only fitting to change our blog background to pretty much the ONLY thing that is on our minds this week...THE BEACH! The title of the background is called Bathing Beauty. Though Bathing Beauty I am not these days (too many brats here in Wisconsin I guess), I am still looking forward (though my body feels otherwise) to spending a week in the sand and sun! Seriously, Matt and I are just looking soooo forward to spending time with the Shelby Family (with a side trip to Auburn to see my sister Julie and Brother In Law Jason) and relaxing for the week! We are so excited!

Beautiful Moments

On Sunday, our Pastor at Community talked about what he called beautiful moments. His sweet Mother-In-Law was gravely ill and so he and his family had been spending their final moments with her. Beautiful moments. Recalling moments past. Savoring the present. This made me think on my life and all of the beautiful moments that I have experienced. God is good. He is ALWAYS faithful. In the good and the bad, in the easy and the hard. Below are just a FEW beautiful moments that I have experienced recently.

Julie, Kristen and Matt-Sweet Camp Ozark friends that visited us in "the bay."

Make new friends but keep the old...sweet, sweet college friends.

My sister, Julie and my Brother-In-Law Jason with our sweet nephews Ben and Drew (Julie and Jason are pregnant with their first! A BOY!)

The awesome nephews at the Zoo!

Sweet Jenny Beth, who met us at the zoo (she brought 5 kids with her-what a woman!)
