29 years....

Mark and I just celebrated 29 years of marriage. We took the whole family out to dinner......What fun!

On July 25, 1980, who would have thought we would have ended up 29 years later with 3 daughters and a grandson.

I remember our wedding day like it was yesterday. It was a very hot day! We took a few pics outside and then had to go back indoors before all my makeup melted off!! I remember my hair looking limp by the end of the day. All in all, though, most things went well (even though the ring bearer wouldn't go down the aisle. That ring bearer is now in his 30's and is a Marine in the United States Armed Forces.)

Twenty nine years and still going strong. Makes me wonder what the next 29 years will hold?

A "good" tired....

....VBS is finished and I'm exhausted - but it's a good tired!!!

This past week was very exhausting and very rewarding all at the same time. Seven children made decisions for Christ (woohoo!) and we had the best attended and largest family night ever. (Who knew it was going to be a "cold" night in July when we rented out the Water Park!! :/

I love it when people have fun and learn about God all at the same time. We had a blast at VBS on the Boomerang Express. There were sooooooo many people who helped. Vacation Bible School is not a success without all the terrific volunteers who help with everything from decorating to making snacks, and all the teaching in between.

We have such a variety of talent at church and in our community. It's wonderful how God places people in the body of Christ who fit together so well with all the different talents! As one man put it - "we have everything from scoops to nuts" (I'm definitely one of the nuts! :)

Thanks to everyone who helped the last few weeks.....I really appreciate it! May the Lord richly bless you spiritually for all that you did.

♫Oooohhh, I get by with a lotta help from my friends...

What can I say except "A BIG THANK YOU" to my friends Janel and Adam at( who are helping me decorate for Vacation Bible School. Janel and Adam are super talented and had a lot of great decorating ideas for VBS.

Without their help, I wouldn't be posting right now because I would be so far behind schedule for VBS. With their help we have decorated half the church and tomorrow we will hopefully finish up or at least come close to finishing up! Woohoo!!

Isn't it great to have friends who will help you? I love how God designed our friends and our church family to work together and use their gifts to serve the Lord Jesus. I thank God for my friends and family and church family!

(P.S....Thanks also goes to my wonderful hubby for helping, as well!!!!!)
