“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself” (Matthew 22:37-39). Relationships are vital whether they are with family or friends. We were so blessed to have the privilege of taking four days away to spend with our immediate family. Just catching up on rest, extra time with the Lord, small talks and big talks =), fun, new experiences, and making memories! Although the weather was chilly near Branson, Missouri, we enjoyed hot drinks, the fireplace and chatting. We also were able to spend a day with Thomas, Dakota, and Asia (Dakota’s younger sister), fun, fun! Please pray for Thomas and Dakota as they minister in the Philippines for the month of May. On our way home, we were able to visit the Precious Moments Chapel and grounds.
Big Sandy, Texas!
In April, we had the opportunity, to meet old friends and make new friends at a homeschool conference. We were also spiritually encouraged and challenged to draw near to God. Since we attended as a family, it also opened a door for our family to reconcile with one another. Living together with more than just yourself can sometimes lend to disagreements, easily hurt feelings and misunderstandings. Although, we strive to keep short accounts with each other, problems can be easily overlooked. However, getting away from the routine of life can help reveal blind spots and unresolved issues. We are so very grateful for this special time together in Big Sandy. And, yes, Danny got to fly again. This time with Mom and Abby in the back seat…..Whew…we’re all still here!!!! Thanks John!
Before going to Big Sandy, Mom, Tabitha and Johnny drove over to Tennessee to see Chad and Erin for a few days. Mom and Tabitha attended Erin’s shower for baby Carson, while Johnny went to work with Chad! We covet your prayers for a safe delivery for Mom and baby.
When we love God and walk in a right relationship with Him, we will have the right focus and love each other as we should.
We really appreciate those who take time to make comments on our website. We also appreciate your prayers for our family.
