Back 'home'

I thought since today we were heading back to the sunny south to celebrate hubby's birthday with his family, I would post a picture of someone we left back in the south. This is a very dear friend of our daughter's. He started coming to our church when our daughter was 4 years old. We soon found out that he had lost his daughter when she was 4 years old. The two of them hit it off immediately and she sat beside him almost every single Sunday and Wednesday service for the next 4 years! He told us many times that God knew he needed her in his life. Our daughter keeps in contact with him through letters and phone calls and he proudly displays her picture in his kitchen :) We miss you dear friend!
And since I won't be posting this weekend....Happy Birthday my dear hubby! I am so very proud of you. You are such a wonderful example to myself and your family. These past several months have not been easy BUT you have been determined, despite any obstacle or discouragement, to follow God's call and do what your Heavenly Father has asked you to do. I know it was a huge step out of your comfort zone, but you continue to proclaim that we serve a faithful God and He will see us through!! I love you!
