~Happy Father's Day~

Happy Father's Day Dad! I am so thankful that God has given you to me as a Father. You are the greatest Dad anyone could ask for. I love the life that you live, the Godliness that you show and the example that you are. When I look at you, and see God in you, and I know others do too. I love you Dad, and hope we have many Father's Days to come. YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!

~Are We Ever Alone?~

I received this in an email, and wanted to share. This touched me so much, and I am so thankful for God's unconditional love that He shows me each and every day. Isn't God amazing?

Do you know the legend of the Cherokee Indian youth's rite of passage?

His father takes him into the forest, blindfolds him and leaves him
He is required to sit on a stump the whole night and not remove the
blindfold until the rays of the morning sun shine through it.

He cannot cry out for help to anyone. Once he survives the night, he is a Man.
He cannot tell the other boys of this experience because each lad must
come into manhood on his own.

The boy is naturally terrified. He can hear all kinds of noises. Wild
beasts must surely be all around him. Maybe even some human might do
him harm.

The wind blew the grass and earth, and shook his stump, but he
sat stoically, never removing the blindfold. It would be the only way
he could become a man!

Finally, after a horrific night, the sun appeared and he removed his
blindfold. It was then that he discovered his father sitting on the
stump next to him. He had been at watch the entire night, protecting his son from harm.

We, too, are never alone. Even when we don't know it, our Heavenly
Father is watching over us, sitting on the stump beside us. When
trouble comes, all we have to do is reach out to Him.

Moral of the Story:
Just because you can't see God doesn't mean He is not there.

'For we walk by faith; Not by sight.'
~ 2 Corinthians 5:7

If you liked this story, pass it on. If not, perhaps you took off your
blindfold before dawn.

Prayer Changes Things!!!

~Family Fun~

Saturday, after Dad's party, we got together and my sister Yvonne's house. We had a cookout and just sat around and talked. We all had a good time. We had a couple of friends come, Karen Gibson and Wendell Sollenberger. Karen is a good friend from Indiana, and Wendell went to GBS with Debbie and Rachel. He is from Pennsylvania. I had a good time taking pictures of everyone. One of these days I will have a better camera to deal with:)

Enjoy the pics!!

Dad's Party

On Saturday, May 31, we had Dad's 90th birthday party. I did not get many pictures, since my batteries went dead, and had no extra. We were wanting to have this as a surprise, but that did not happen. We had to tell him about it. We had a wonderful time.
