Priceless Treasures

During the week that Christie and her little ones were with us we found time to take some pictures of all the nieces and nephews. It's such a joy to watch my two older sisters, Christie and Heather, fulfilling their blessed and God-honoring roles as wife and mother.

William, Rosie, Noah, Mercy, and Davina

You can see the resemblance between Noah and Mercy!

Rosie, Mercy, and Davina

"Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed"

Wireless! Yay!!!

Praise the Lord for the details He gives such attention to. I never thought it would be possible to get wireless where we live, but after a visit from the repair man yesterday we now have the highest upgrade (including wireless) for no extra cost; only because we were having inconveniences. No more putting your name in a day in advance to check your email! :-)

Memories from Hannah's Birthday

One occasion I forgot to post about was my sister Hannah's 18th birthday.

In addition to our traditional celebration as a family, this year we did a little something special and had a girls night (to Hannah's surprise). With the help of a blindfold, she had no idea where we were going or that we would spend the evening with our dear friends: Sarah and Beth.

We enjoyed a dinner at Kanpai of Tokyo, followed by a walk downtown, and a delicious cake in the parking garage.
(I'm so thankful to Sarah for all the work she did to make Hannah's birthday memorable!)

Yummy chicken and fried rice at Kanpai

After many attempts/failures, we finally managed to get all of us in the shot!
(Me, Beth, Hannah, Sarah)

(No worries, she gave him dad's number!)

All of the coffee shops were unfortunately closed. Beth was a "little" disappointed!

The conclusion of our evening: a Heath Bar Cake. It was even better than it looks! Because we were running low on time, we had to skip the picnic idea and enjoy the cake in the parking garage. We celebrated, tail-gated, and got many strange looks.

I'm so proud of you, Hannah! You have blossomed into a lovely woman with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit. I pray the Lord will continue to bless you with wisdom beyond your years!

Playing Catch-up

After months of not posting, while staying busy with the blessings of life, I'm going to attempt to catch-up a little on some of the highlights from the past three months.

Orlando, Florida...

In February, Isaac and Christie took Matt and me with them on one of Isaac's business trips. Matt, Christie and I took the kids and palled around until the highlight of the week: SeaWorld!
We had such a wonderful time of shopping, fellowship and great food! Many wonderful memories were made and we're appreciative that Isaac included us in his plans.
Thank you guys!

Snowy Days..
We're so blessed to have this view from our front porch

Brusters + PJ's = FREE ICE CREAM!
Just days after we played in the snow, we were sitting outside Brusters in 80 degree weather eating ice cream. South Carolina weather!
We're Johnsons...'nuff said!
Now to the present... an encouraging week with Christie!
You can't tell from the still picture, but they were goin' full speed down the drive way! My heart skipped a beat more than once while watching them
William thoroughly enjoying his dougnut
Spring is here!
I'm afraid this is a very lacking update, as the past months have been full and blessed ones that I praise the Lord for! He has been so very faithful in graciously chastening me while working towards my sanctification.
My cup runneth over!
