Pics from the trip

We borrowed a friend's mini-van for the trip to Dallas so that my sister and Austin could ride along. The boys thought it was great fun, and since we had hours upon hours of time on our hands, I took a few pics of the excitement. Here's Ethan eating one of Lydia's no bake cookies...yum!

Don't forget Simon! What a mess!

And last but not least, my favorite shot of the weekend. The fly-away hair!

Many of you have asked about how our weekend went. It was such a nice time with my grandma. She was doing well, and was relieved that Grandpa had not suffered. We spent some time with my Uncle Stuart and his girlfriend Susan who graciously invited us all to dinner in their very beautiful home, and it meant a lot to Grandma that everyone came to support her. We continue to pray for Grandma that she would have a desire to be sure of her salvation, especially now that Grandpa is in eternity. I personally didn't get to talk to her much more than 5 minutes or so because of the kids, but I know that others in my family did. We will keep praying!

This morning I read this in Amy Carmichael's book If:

If I am afraid to speak the truth, lest I lose affection,
or lest the one concerned should say,
"You do not understand,"
or because I fear to lose
my reputation for kindness;
if I put my own good name before
the other's highest good,
then I know nothing of Calvary love.

Cute pics!!

How true it is that we need to worry about people's souls more then if we are liked.....
everyone we meet we should see as a chance to share who the Lord is even if it is just a smile or good attitude. (so convicting to me....)

I am praying for your grandma.

I just love looking at those boys. They have personality plus!

I wish we could have talked more about the Lord on our trip, but Grandma did have Dad pray at dinner Monday night and he gave a little gospel message in the prayer. The Lord has put Stuart and Susan on my mind a lot and I have been praying for them especially. Hopefully, the few words we said will make them think about their eternal destiny. Mom
