What I love

My friend at lots of scotts inspired me to list what I love:

-a wonderful husband that gives and serves to his entire family and to others

-a husband who was first and foremost my friend growing up, I love that, because we knew each other so long ago, we never thought we would be here now!!

-2 beautiful biological daughters that give me a run for my money (according to my parents, I was JUST like them)

-1 spunky little toddler that loves to act, entertain, trains, to laugh, drinks "warm" apple juice, and keeps us ALL busy.

-1 precious 14 year old son, who although I did not bring into this world is a joy to parent because he shows unbelievable respect to others. (he WILL be a catch of a husband, he has lived with 10 women!!)

-5, yes, 5 beautiful teenage daughters that I love dearly (even through the drama)
God has blessed me in getting to parent them through these tender years

-2 beautiful 8 year old daughters that are a joy to watch, who love to laugh, and have entertained us in our home through the years!!

-a wonderful loving extended family, I am blessed beyond measure

-friends that keep me laughing, sharing, and growing

-a loving church family and community that support us.

-a beautiful place to live in and raise our family in, lots of space to run around!!

-a wonderful Savior, Redeemer, restorer that gives me life everyday

For God so LOVED the world that he gave His only son, that whosoever believes in Him, will have eternal life. John 3:16

Happy Valentine's Day-above all, let's show His love today!!

Wendy,
I am one who regularly is inspired by your blog. Thank you for sharing! I have to share with you this quote I read today. It was sent to me from my cousin who has been a missionary in Thailand for 29 years. Raised four daughters and all are in the states now in college or early marriage years. This is where Chris and Katie are staying on their trip to Thailand. Anyway, my cousin, Judy knows the truth of this statement as she misses her girls and grandchildren so much.

"Our goal is to steadily turn our children away from their earthly parents, who will let them down, toward a heavenly Father who will always be there for them and in Whose arms they will always be secure."
~ Susan Alexander Yates

Be blessed today as you consistently turn your children to the Lord!
