Birthday Party

                        My sweet Jaden, I can't believe
                        you are four years old. It seemed
                       like yesterday you had just turned three. 
                       You were so thrilled this year!
                       I could see a special sparkle in your eyes and 
                       your face aglow with excitement, for you 
                       decided that every day of this week was your
                       special day that God made just for you. You
                       walked and danced around the house all week
                      with your jeweled crown on  your little head 
                       and your little dress-up shoes clickity-clacking 
                       on the floor. You were celebrating in your own
                       special way as only His princess can do.

                              Happy Birthday Sweet Baby Girl
                          One from last year with cousin Christy
                          Pink Strawberry Ice Cream Cake!!!
                            And of course a pink pinata.

This morning I received a phone call from 
AWAA it was Melissa our FC letting me know
she had received our Dossier and everything
looked good. So it will be going out late
Thursday and be DTC Friday. Good Friday!
Who could ask for a more special time to 
celebrate.... When our Savior conquered 
death and rose from the grave!!

But he said to them,"Do not be alarmed . You seek Jesus
of Nazareth, who was crucified. HE IS RISEN!  
He is not here. See the place where they laid Him."
Mark 16:6

For God so loved the world that 
He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him
should not perish but have 
everlasting life.
For God did not send His Son
into the world to condemn the
world, but that the world 
through Him might be saved.
John 3:16,17

We praise and thank you Jesus.

Have a blessed and Happy Easter celebrating HE IS ALIVE!

PS~ Piper we are getting closer!!!

Mommy would you pray for me?

His little princess

Driving home from church the other evening Jaden
told us she didn't like the dark. She asked me if I
would please pray for her and ask Jesus to help
her not be afraid. After I did she thanked me.
When we got home Stan and I went in the house
and I noticed Jaden hadn't come in yet. I went
back out and found her looking up at the sky
and talking. I asked her if she was afraid to be
out there by herself and she said, "No I am
talking to Jesus."
Blessed and melted my heart.

"Fear not for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your
I will strengthen you,
I will uphold you with My
righteous right hand."
Isaiah 41:10

Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                          Jaden has been celebrating all week

A Gift

      A friend of ours  gave us this beautiful Hibiscus.
     The trunk has four twists in it going up into the
    green  foliage and beautiful blossoms.
                             Representing Piper being woven into our family,                                            
                                      As only our Father in heaven can do.
                                                       Thanks big John!
