We really like Sara and had hoped that Shane would get smart and keep her around.  We are thrilled that she will be a member of our family.

We celebrated at The Melt*ng P*t the other evening.

Happy Birthday Dad!

Safely Home

I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.

All the pain and suffering is over
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.

Did you wonder I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus' love illumined
Every dark and fearful glade.

And He came Himself to meet me
In that way so hard to tread
And with Jesus' arm to lean on
Could I have one doubt or dread?

Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still:
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our Father's will.

There is still work waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth-
You shall rest in Jesus' land.

When that work is completed,
He will gently call you home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!

Still here… Still struggling….

Samie did a photo shoot with Sydney the other day.

There was a lot of silliness…..



But even more, there was stunning beauty….





Her eyes are like deep, dark, glistening pools that just beg you to love her…


Then tonight this is what I found…


She told me she had nowhere else to sit and write, even though there were 6 empty chairs at the table …

And this is what she was writing…


She ran out of room on the one line, we are working on her letter spacing!

Red heart Little sweetie Red heart


Samie started soccer last week.  They won their first game, (7-0) but lost in a majorly bad called game this week, (1-2).  Even the ref admitted her mistakes!




I am so excited…. in 2 weeks I will be starting a photography class with Lisa from The Long Road to China.  I am terrified and excited at the same time.  We will be learning how to get out of the auto mode.  I have tried so many times and it just doesn’t sink in, maybe Lisa can get it into this head of mine.

Please, if you think of it, continue to keep us in your prayers.  We have major struggles going on and are doing battle.  I know that when we are finally in His presence we will understand all.  But for now we continue to pray for guidance and peace.
