Having someone to love is FAMILY. Having somewhere to go is HOME. Having both is a BLESSING.

Just in case you wondered.....

......Miss Personality and the Princess of our domain is alive and well!

Swinging with Daryl

Playing ball with Daryl

Wearing Rob's flip flops!

Learning how to set the table for dinner!

Got herself ready to step outside and "re-catch" Daryl's trout!

What a prize catch!

She's got enough personality for 5 little girls!

Trying to make an ugly face. It's the cutest one I'VE ever seen!

Here's hoping you feel caught up for the past several weeks that we were unable to post!


His Hand In Mine

Laws are always changing and they affect the way that we live. Another time, change has taken place in our family and we have added for an indefinite time, a little fella who needs structure, care and the love of a good family! The aforementioned laws will no longer allow for us to post pictures that show the identity of the little people who live with us as well, we can no longer use any form of his/her name. So, we will refer to this new little guy as C.

A very neat discovery is that C loves music almost as much as we do!! And I believe that God brought him here for some measure of healing. He is presently five years of age and quite active. He's bright and quick learned. After a few short and jam packed full days, C discovered that Jesus loves him very much and C now insists that HE be permitted to pray for his own meals!

If you happen to be in the right place at the right time, you will have the privilege to meet this little boy. He's a sweetheart and needs your prayers as do we in our responsibility of ministering and caring for him.

"C - one more little hand in MINE!"


Twenty years is a long time to be married these days and yet, in many ways, it seems as if we just got married not so long ago! To celebrate our incredible milestone, we decided to take a trip back to the place where we honeymooned as newlyweds...in the Poconoes where our favorite place we visited was Bushkill Falls, the Niagra of Pennsylvania. Twenty years ago, we hiked all the trails and enjoyed the peace of God's nature. As I am not yet fully recovered from an earlier surgery on my foot, I could only make it down to the main falls. We still enjoyed this place.

Thankful to God for the gift of togetherness, companionship, friendship and LOVE!
