They made it home

They made it home. My parents and my newest sister and brothers came home this morning. They did great in the airplane and on the ride home. The are so adorable and sweet. Selah's sister looks so tall and grown up. I could not believe it. The boys are little and smart. You can see they are coming along so well. They got to play outside for a little bit and loved to ride the bikes they are on. God has brought us all together again.  Thank you.

Today my friend Mary and her husband Peter came to visit us. They live in Boston so it was a blessing to have them in our home for a little while. Yes, Mary and Peter got to see the new ones for the first time. So it was awesome. Mary and Peter thanks for coming by. I love you both!

Religion or Devotion?

I love this video. My pastor at church last night showed it to us and I had to ask who this video was by. We need to do so much on this earth. There are so many kids that are dying. There are so many teenagers that are drinking just messing up their life. There are so many marriages that are broken. We need to change this world and be changed by it. We need to share the good news of Jesus. We need to be his disciples. If you don't change alot of people, I know you can change atleast one person.
