Today I celebrated turning 27! I really feel so blessed! Beau suprised me with flowers which I loved. He & Piper also got me a new camera. Piper came in the house lastnight holding my present & card from her. It was so sweet. She was SO excited to give it too me. All day today she has been giving me "presents".
My sweet card from Piper. Signed by her. I LOVE IT!
My sweet card from Beau! LOVE!
SO BLESSED! I love flowers!
Piper told Beau that another man brought me the flowers. :)
We went to dance tonight. Piper was wound up! Beau & I were laughing b/c Piper is making the duck face in this picture. I don't know where she got it from but we don't like the duck face. She sure is cute though.
After dance we went for some ice cream :)
I know how blessed I am to have gotten to share my birthday with my grandpa. I was his birthday present :) I got to have 24 years with him. This is my 3rd year without him. The 1st birthday without him I cried the whole wknd. The next birthday (last year) my family was going to suprise me b/c I had such a hard year. I ended up going to Texas b/c my aunt Becky passed away. This year is a little easier. I just want to remember how blessed I am. I will always miss him! I am thankful to have been born on his birthday.
Beau, really made my birthday special & he put alot of thought into it. Thank you Beau Ames! I love you so much!
.....RADICAL that is. I don't even know how to describe it....
I am thankful for this book. I am thankful for getting convicted for reading this book. I would hate to be "comfortable" in my walk with Christ. That would be........SAD :( I know sometimes I do.
What I really love is that he (David Platt) quoted scripture.
I love that he even talked about his struggles (pg 124)
He talks about his church & how there are too many luxuries there. Too many people with too many expensive things.
I love how he challenges his church members to be more radical.
Pg 136 he even talks about ways that he & his wife try & remove luxuries.
Pg 198 he talks about how our mission begins in our home. "Therefore, our homes, communities, & cities are the primary places & contain the primary people with whom we will impact nations for the glory of Christ."
~SO TRUE! We have a mission all around us. I also believe God puts different things on different peoples hearts to be there mission field.
~I do want SO much more though. I know there is SO much more that I can do!
Another GREAT time with some amazing people! I feel SO blessed to be a part of this group. Good food, & the Newlywed game. They tried to get Beau & I to participate in the game but I refused. After hearing some of the questions, I am SO glad I didn't. Good job Cora & Aimee!
All the ladies
Our guys are so silly!
Me & MY sweetheart! <3
We had our 2nd annual after party at Terral & Shaina's again.
Here we are doing popsicle push-ups. It was really neat.
The guys. I think this is Beau, Terral, Aaron, & Robby.
We also did some leg-wrestling. Beau & Terral, I think they took turns beating eachother.
Shaina & I leg wresling (Shaina please don't kill me for this picture)
Jacque & Amanda, this was too funny!
Piper & Hudson wanted to do some leg wresling (so cute)
Jason & Dusty.
Then the girls beat the guys 2 out of 3 rounds in catch phrase.
Here are the girls doing a popsicle push-up.
Amanda, Shaina, Jacque, & me. Poor Jacque, she is the only one who couldn't lift herself up.
