Wonderful Mother's Day

I am so blessed to have two healthy, beautiful children and a husband who appreciates me as the mother to his children. Jon preached a wonderful sermon yesterday about mother's and tied it in so sweetly (not a dry eye in the house) to the way our Lord Jesus loved and honored His mother while here on earth.
We always have such wonderful meetings at Tired Creek. We really look forward to 2nd and 4th weekends! I am reminded often of my childhood when I go there. The building,the grounds, the people, the history of it in the community all remind me of my home church Cool Springs. I was so blessed to grow up in a very loving, Christ filled church and I miss it often. I am just thankful to feel at home here and to have such a wonderful, beautiful family to enjoy it with me.
Some of Jon's family came in for the weekend and we had a wonderful time, as usual! When you are having good times with people you love, time seems to slip away so fast. Speaking of time, boy oh boy are my babies growing up. They are turning over ALL the time now, especially Audrey Grace. She turns over in her bed, on the floor and she tries really hard to do it in the swing! I knew I was gonna have to watch her like a hawk!

Oh, Amanda, how blessed we were the day you came into our lives. Just look what you have done for us! I'll never be able to tell you how much you mean to us. I hope you know.
With joy and gratitude,
Your mother-in-love.
