My New Favorite Song...At Least For Today

I'm always adding new songs to my list of favorites and this is definitely right at the top! 

I especially love these lyrics...

What good is chance not taken
What good is life not living
What good is love not given

A Funny Caleb Moment

Caleb loves playing with kitchen utensils. The other day I turned around to see him like this.  The first thing that came to mind was "oh, he must be reliving his delivery"!  A picture worth a thousand words.

Praise and Prayer Request

Praising God for our dear friends Dad's successful triple bypass surgery today.  Please keep the family in your prayers.  The next 24 hours are critical and then it will be about a 2 month long recovery process.  God is faithful~thank you Lord for hearing the prayers of your children!!!!!!!

A little vacation update...

We enjoyed our vacation at the Christian Reformed Conference Grounds this past week.  We have had a rough Summer and this vacation was not without its trouble. Our trailer fridge quit working so we had to dump $75 worth of groceries not too long into the week.  Our friends came through for us and let us borrow their portable fridge otherwise our vacation would have ended before it really even began.  I got really sick the first day we were there, but after 3 or 4 days was feeling better.  Oh and did I mention the rain, and wind...and more rain?? 

Despite all of the challenges the week brought it was still a wonderful time at our favorite place.  We all left feeling refreshed and are so thankful for such an incredible place!!  I'm in the process of making a slide show of vacation pictures as well as sharing more thoughts on this amazing place.  Keep checking back for updates!

15 years ago we sat in this very spot on our 1st date.....look what happened!! =)
