Graduation...So Last Month...

Image
We made our long drive back from New Mexico the last two days. Wes and I have been in the Land of Enchantment for just about a month. Three weeks at Camp Blue Haven and then almost another week in Red River at the Red River Family Encampment. I downloaded all of my pictures from this adventure and I have over 2000. Whew...these graduation pics were at the top so I thought that I would start there. It seems like MONTHS ago that Wes had his graduation ceremony. Life sure does go on. Truly, I am thankful that our boys are out of high school and are moving on. There are such great times ahead for them with good friends and college activities. This picture below is Wes with two of his best friends from school. We are thankful for you Ethan and Devin! Gonna miss seeing you guys!
The long wait...


Proud papa and mama.

I have so much I want to share with you from the past month. Having been at CBH for three weeks was such a great blessing.
Love knows no limit to it's endurance,

no end to it…

Mountain Wedding...

Little brother Michael preaching Britni and Jared's wedding.










I love it when God brings two lovely people together to enjoy life and to bless the people around them. God is so good. I have never seen a more beautiful wedding ceremony. Only God's decoration. Could not have been more beautiful.

We are still enjoying the lovely mountains in Northern New Mexico. Cool and breezy. Praying for rain for Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. When is the Texas heat wave going to end? It seems we are having such weather extremes. Goodness.

Blessings on this beautiful Sunday! Talk to you soon! Amy

Beautiful Love...

Wes and I are up in the beautiful mountains of New Mexico while Sid is home working away in the Texas heat. Sorry honey. First session of camp was so wonderful. Like I have said before...a little taste of heaven. We all learned so much. Campers and adults alike. Friendships were strengthened and spiritual renewal was felt.
Now...I want to shout hallelujah about how God moves in people's lives in this post. The beautiful couple in these pictures are two past Blue Haven counselors. Jared Brock and Britni Johnson. Little did these two know that when they came to camp to bless campers that they would find each other. They both hold a tight grip on my heart because of what they have meant and mean to my family. Britni has been in our world for many years first through the Red River Encampment and then CBH. She has a heart for God...never ending and never giving up. Both our boys had Jared as a counselor in the past years at camp. His love for the Lord and the way he has challenged our …

Graduation...

Tonight is this little boy's graduation from high school...
He will put on this cap and gown and walk across that stage and say goodbye to his childhood.
I am thrilled for him and we are looking forward to the next chapter in his life.
My heart is feeling a little achy but I am trying to ignore it.
I figure I can dwell on it later. Today is not a day for crying, but a day for being joyful and celebration!
God has great things planned for this boy.
I can't wait to watch his life play out through God's orchestration.
Once again Wes...this verse comes to mind.
Psalm 119:11
How can a young man keep his way pure?
By living according to Your word.
I seek You with all my heart;
do not let me stray from Your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against You.
We love you little one. Blessings.

Just Had To Share...

Everyone here in the town where I live love Azaleas. I love them too. They are everywhere in the spring and are breathtaking.
The flower below really steals my heart though. These are in the flower bed at church. Most people wait for Azalea time but I wait for Hydrangea time.
So big and colorful and happy. Lovely.
I love this encouragement too:
Ps. 113:3
From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised.

Ps. 115:15
May you be blessed by the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

Blessings! Amy

Oh My Goodness...

My computer died about six days ago. I don't know what a motherboard is but ours died. Ouch. Not a cheap little computer fix but better than buying a new computer. By the way, this morning our dryer died TOO. I am on my way to the laundry mat. Oh my goodness. Talk to you soon. Blessings! Amy
