Our 4 Daughters



Our  4 daughters are a vast range of age,
 and are all doing a wide  variety of activities. 

 Here they are:

Daughter #1 is our sweet Anna,
She is our second born child,
 now 21, and married to a wonderful godly man. 
 They live in New Mexico, which is very sad for me,
but I am learning to let go and be content...
it hasn't been easy...even though I am so so happy for her!!

  Anna is in that blessed and radiant state of full bloom,
carrying our grandbaby (their first!) whom we hope to meet very soon....
 I am sooo excited to meet this prayed-for little one!!!



Our third born, the lovely Rose, is just home from three weeks in Africa! 
 I sure missed her, and am so very glad to have her home again...
but my intuition tells me it won't be for long...
Rose is growing up...and Africa is very much a part of her.  
She is a beautiful young lady inside and out.



Then there is miss Bethany,
(9 years old, child #7)
 who just finished her first ballet class, loved every minute of it,
 and now dances her way around the house...
especially when we are listening to The Piano Guys...
....which is pretty often.




And, our ninth, little Olivia
busting us up daily
with some really great original quotes like only a four year old can.

"Are you crying, Olivia?"
"No," she answers...wiping tears away..."My eyes are just sweating!"

She recently climbed up on daddy's lap and said, "I want to have Jesus." 
 Amen!!
 We were happy to hear it!




Our daughters have added so much joy and beauty to our family life. 
 We are very blessed by each one, 
and so very grateful to the Lord for giving us these precious gifts!!!

"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, 
the fruit of the womb is His reward."
 Psalm 127:3

I am so thankful for each one of my four girls, too, Julianne! I grew up with only brothers, so this is a treat! I love each one for how unique and special they are!
