life and love – an update

Did you know that it is already June!?

Our family is ten weeks (give or take) away from meeting precious Grafton Raleigh; Tyler is travelling to here, there, everywhere, and beyond in the next ten weeks, and right after that, Matt Papa is releasing his new album, Look and Live, which will forever change our lives – We pray, O God, for the glory of Your Name.

In the mean time, it’s June!! May was a full-of-life-and-love month for us.

** Our precious niece, Annabeth, was born. We drove to and from where our family lives (about two hours away) in a day to meet her. She is a beauty!

** Always Autumn Studios took our family pictures at Fletcher Park – Grafton, we are documenting your life, little man!

** We found out that my sister and her husband are expecting their first child (coming in January)!!! This is after a long waiting, being told by doctors that it’s very unlikely and nearly impossible for her to get pregnant, having a heart for and practically beginning the process of looking into adoption, and in their heart and hearts entrusting themselves to the Lord. Exactly, right!? RIGHT!? Praise the LORD!

** Daniel, my brother in law, (mentioned in the praise above… the expecting-baby family…) got a job from the Lord after waiting for what seemed like too long. This job offer and acceptance happened in the same week that their precious family found out they were pregnant.  I AM TELLING YOU –  THIS is how the LORD works. He wants you to make sure that you KNOW it is ALL HIM. And, boy, it’s worth it! The knowing Him – and being known before Him – is WORTH IT! I can’t get enough of Him, can you!?

** We celebrated Mother’s Day. We celebrated my parents’ anniversary; we celebrated my mom’s birthday. and Robin’s, our sister-in-law. We CELEBRATED!

my parents celebrated 27 years... way to go, you guys!

my sisters and I threw my mom a surprise birthday party - we realized my mom had not had a girls-only party for herself since... well, ever! that we could remember. It was super-fun and we are so glad we could do this little treat for her!

** We took a mini-vacation to one of our favorite close-by getaways, Carolina Inn.

We love to get a way to somewhere wonderful close by. Since we travel a lot, home is a great get a way.

** We left for Talladega with the MPB for a week and a half and came home and…

IT WAS JUNE!

… and we already have begun to live so much more life… I am excited to share with you all that the Lord is doing …
