Welcome...I'm delighted that you chose to visit! I started this blog in March 2010 and I am so happy that I did. It has made me more aware of the many ways that God is blessing my life. I have made some special friends who bless,teach,encourage,and entertain me! My desire is to be an encouragement to you. I hope you will tarry for a while and that you will come back to visit often.

forty-one years!

Forty-one years ago on June 16, 1973....
we stood at the altar of the church I grew up in
and said our vows and exchanged our rings in the 
presence of family and friends.

God has blessed us with many happy times and has comforted
us in the not-so-happy times.

He has graced us with 3 beautiful children, 7 adorable grands,
and many loving and faithful friends.

He has provided work for our hands, opportunities to serve
and time to have fun!

It was impossible to imagine at age 19 what life with this man
 would be like, but looking back I can say... it has been good.
Not perfect...there have been some bumps in the road...
disappointments, disagreements, difficulties.
But, commitment means getting over the bumps and finding the 
smooth road again.... and that's what we've done.
We have been happy in every stage of our lives...
newlyweds, child-rearing days, and now the "grand" years!
We don't know what the Lord has in store for us in the years
ahead, but we do know that we will face it together and...
we look forward to the adventure!!
