Niece Time


This weekend we got some niece time!  Love our niece, Nessa Mae who drove all the way from L.A. by herself - through the desert, after work (barefoot, uphill, no gas in her car . . . just kidding), just to spend some time with us.  Then turned around and drove back to L.A., encountering car problems, hitchhiking till someone helped her and finally making it home late at night only to head into work early the next day.  What a gem!!  We treasure each moment with her, knowing that her call is to the nations with Frontier Missions and our time with her is limited.
Of all her cousins - Destiny has mannerisms and ways of acting that resemble Nessa Mae the most :-)

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day!  The most wonderful Father of all is our heavenly Father.  So thankful that if we had a dad who was dreadful (not my dad) or no dad at all, we have a heavenly Father who's love is great towards us (Psalm 117).  Yesterday we celebrated some of our favorite "Desert Dude Dad's". :-)  It was almost 120 degrees in beautiful Arizona and we fired up the BBQ and tried to cool the pool down and made a fun day of delicious food, swimming, movies and games.  Thankful for such amazing men, raising beautiful children and carrying God's heart for their families . . . I made them pose for a picture :-)
