Friday Hello


Happy Friday!

We've got a big weekend of birthdays, parties, church, and relaxing around here.  Tonight we are attending a benefit dinner for New Horizons, an anti-trafficking and recovery organization for young girls rescued from the horrifying life of forced prostitution.  Ryan's old boss founded the organization and we are so thrilled to participate in such a neat cause and learn more.

Rilyn, our sweet niece, turned 3 this week!!!  She is such a gift to celebrate so we are going to her pajama party Saturday morning.  Cute!

  And birthday plans for me are in the works for Saturday night and I am excited to post pictures next week (real birthday is the 29th).  

I realized recently that we take birthdays seriously around here!  We really make a big deal out of the other person and generally we experience 3+ birthday parties!!  Ha!  A friends party and one with each side of our families.  Plus a birthday event with just the two of us.  We dig that each other was born I guess :)  Plus it's fun to feel special on your birthday.

Besides the festivities, I'm sure I will have studying to do and we will try to relax also.  Sunday is our day to take it slow, experience Sabbath, and recharge for the week.

 What's on your agenda?


The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

2 Peter 3:9

  1. We take birthdays seriously too! It's got me thinking about just how often the Lord commanded us to party it up in the Old Testament. Festivals here, holidays there. God wants us to take practically any excuse to have a good time! Excited to celebrate your life this weekend!
