Thirty-Nine

Is there any way I can just stay this age but still watch my kids grow up?


So yesterday was my birthday. I love Sundays. The Lord's Day and just a bunch of great people to share it with!

Our friend Dennis Siler from Living Waters Bible Camp came back down our way to share the Good News of Jesus and the Biblical truth of God's creation. His dinosaur show was, once again, fabulous.

Dennis is on fire for Christ, and it shines through his face, voice, gestures, and sincere care for each person.

He invites questions and expresses his own doubts. To leave your job as a mining engineer, give it all up for God, and run a camp ministry that trains hundreds of youth around the country...you know it isn't about the money. Because there's a huge pay-cut there. God uses this scientific, logical mind and combines it with a teddy-bear heart for Him and the results are just unspeakable.
The kids sang at church,

Dennis spoke a bit, Pastor Mark hit it on the head again with his weekly message (What are your motives? What do you want God to do for you?)and we enjoyed a potluck dinner. What could be better than that?
Add on a Packers victory, a beautiful day to play outside with the kids, and a little family celebration. Icing on the cake!


How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! --1 John 3:1
