We are growing as a family. What a joy! We certainly do not take for granted “Family.” It means different things to different people. To us it means:
*Someone to laugh and cry with
*Someone to grow with
*Someone to give counsel
*Someone to share joys and failures with
*Someone to experience life with
*Somewhere safety, comfort, and peace reside
*Somewhere the foundations of principle and purpose is established
*A building block of a community, a state, a nation
We could go on and on…We realize that not everyone has a “family” or perhaps their family has a shattered picture. We thank God for His great mercies in our family! But acknowledge that God is bigger than shattered pictures and can redeem, revive, and restore families.
In August, we had an opportunity to visit with Chad,Erin and baby Carson in Tennessee. Thomas and Dakota came from Missouri, Nate from Florida and Tabitha from Arkansas. During our time as a family we did a photo shoot. We think this photo shoot has been the most fun in our history of family photo shoots! It was such a blessing to pray, talk, and laugh together once more.
