The Beautiful Faces of the Families of My Girls —

Dorie appropriates a “stirrer” for a straw


Cousins play with their new cars



Alex wonders where his car went . . .

“Oh, there it is!  I want it back!”
(There was a semi-peaceful resolution)


The kids find the stairway a good place to congregate


Thank God for Helping Hands!


Brothers in law and friends


Bethany and her girlies


Daddies enjoy their kiddoes

Ethan and Queena enjoy Bryan and Shamar
(These two young men were very engaging and polite)

More conversation


Cherise’s Three Sons


Derrick gives motion to a fuzzy bunny



Ah, James-boy!  All Sweetness and a big smile


Delaney finds a cozy place to perch


Don’t even ask.  Because (honestly!) I don’t know.

April with the wonderful oreo cookie torte that she contributed to the dessert table



Dana and her David.  Or is it David and his Dana?



Normie and her sister, Kathleen.
How thankful we are for God’s protection over Kathleen and her unborn baby
when she was involved in a traffic accident just four days earlier.
Mama and baby are both fine.


Forty people.  Nine families.  Eight churches represented.
These gals light up my life in so many ways.
They wrote kind and encouraging things to me for Christmas,
and gave me the gift of time away with the promise to care for my ladies
while Certain Man and I go to California sometime in the next few months.

You girls are the best, and I love you more than I can say.
May none of you ever forget that you are
Hold your heads high,
Your possessions loosely,
Your loved ones tightly,
And keep your hearts soft.
Heaven Knows we need more Godly Women in this world.
It is my prayer that every one of you will be known as such.
