Family Time... Savoring the time...

Busy schedules mean we don't always get to celebrate birthdays on the actual day. Also, since our family is growing, it's often easier to combine birthdays. Evan, Dad/Pop, and Levi all have a birthday within a couple of weeks of each other. Their birthdays were last month but we finally sang happy birthday to them last Saturday.
Taylor (on the left) is our step-grand-baby  from California :) We don't get to see her too often but each time she's here she just gets more and more beautiful! Growing up! She's pictured here with our daughter in law Melissa... Lovely Ladies
 Daddy and Daughter... Lauren is our second oldest...

 I'm pretty sure Taylor was not hurting Amy too much! Amy is our oldest.
My eldest son... the littles really love Bradley-a godly example! :)
My mom and step dad were here as well but they ran out before I could get a picture of them.
It was a great day with the family and a great night sitting around the campfire and setting off fireworks. I savor these days. I don't want to miss a single minute. I want to remember forever...

I know how quickly these moments fly by. Before we know it they with be gone. The littles will be grown. And even some who are with us today will no longer enjoy the "moments" this side of eternity. But Jesus is still at the center of it all.
Lord of Lords!
 I Glorify You for this moment!
 I praise You for the next!

 I worship You for eternity because you are the author and finisher of life.
All that lives and breaths is in Your hands. It all belongs to You.

I pray Lord for those loved ones to SEE WHO YOU TRULY ARE...
those who have chosen to walk another road. And those who are on the fence.

Psalm 24:1-6
A Psalm of David.
              1The earth is the LORD’S, and all it contains,

            The world, and those who dwell in it.

      2For He has founded it upon the seas
            And established it upon the rivers.

      3Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD?
            And who may stand in His holy place?

      4He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
            Who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood
            And has not sworn deceitfully.

      5He shall receive a blessing from the LORD
            And righteousness from the God of his salvation.

      6This is the generation of those who seek Him,
            Who seek Your face—even Jacob.
