Here comes more of 2014!
July 4th with our awesome Mimi in town! I love doing things with my girls. <3
Abigail turned 19 this year! She taught piano, is always writing, playing and singing music, selling her hand-made crocheted or knitted projects, working at the frame shop, or nanny-ing! And, no, she does not do any of these full time, all part time. =)
Whether it's a day trip to meet up with golden friends or they come see us, we love them all!
This was the girl's 2nd Grade Christian school teacher in Raleigh, NC
Gray worked at the frame shop with Abigail this summer. I think he forgot his belt....way to be resourceful! =) It does make a fashion statement, um, I think...
We are in our church's Good News Club this year. Abigail and I teach, lead songs and grade shepherd and Gray also leads songs. What an honor to work with the folks at Lakeside Baptist! We love the privilege to bring the Good News of Christ to the children. It's an exciting mission field!
I don't think I can even comment on this one - I just thought you'd enjoy it! =D haha
Our church has a "911 Sunday" where they invite all emergency, fire, and police staff and their families in the community to honor them by holding a special service that included Pastor sharing the Gospel. The church also fed them and their families. We also have them bring their fire trucks, helicopters and other equipment for all to see. Here is Nick being the best parking attendant there is - ever!
Lakeside Tent Revival! We were blessed by Brother Ralph Sexton's preaching. That's our Pastor Tad below! He's a tremendous blessing!
A trip to the mountains for Nick's dear parents' 50th Anniversary!
It was great to see these sweet folks!
You'll recognize this picture from our previous blog post (back up just a few) called "Prison Mission Trip". This was the time of year we were honored to be a part of a dynamic team going into the Florida prisons and sharing the Gospel, teaching and discipling.
On our way out of town the oh-so-precious Keller family graciously took us to Silver Spring's and we got to ride in a glass bottom boat! There are more pictures on the previous post. =)
We love to go to the Colonial Times Park in our area that has building replicas, black smiths, a time period church service, candle makers, etc.
My precious dad, better known as "Pop-Pop", had surgery and we flew to be with him. God answered many prayers and he did amazing! Silly Gray...
We went to Arkansas to Jessa's wedding. We were not aloud to take any pictures of the ceremony or reception so these will just have to be proof that we even attended! haha
Awesome time at the Duggar's house with these special friends!
Gray turned 15 this year and got his learner's permit!
If you have any social media, are following our blog, know us or live in this universe I'm sure you already know that these two amazing people got engaged!!! The very post before this year in review post is their detailed engagement. God definitely orchestrated this exciting event! And, as you can tell from this year, Brandon has been a tremendous blessing and huge part of our family already! Please pray for them as they will be saying "I do!" in March!
God has blessed, we are unworthy, but, HE AND HIS WORD ARE FAITHFUL!! Please pray for us when you think of us and let us know how we may pray for you!
We'll end with this...
