“Like sands through the hour glass, so are the days of our lives.”

The littlest of the Littles.  “Behind every young child who believes in himself is a parent who believed first.” – Matthew L. Jacobson
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” – Dr. Seuss
“Having a sister is like having a best friend you can’t get rid of. You know whatever you do, they’ll still be there.” —Amy Li
“Being a family means you are a part of something very wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life.” –Lisa Weed
Gabriel and Ceci spent 4 months in Colorado attending Bible school and working. Ceci worked at a convenience store and Gabe worked on the family farm. “Your wings already exist, all you have to do is fly.”
We finally ventured back to church and our customary family cookie date afterward. “Let us love one another as God loves each one of us. And where does this love begin? In our own home. How does it begin? By praying together.” – Mother Teresa
I got to spend time with Briggs Legend! My SECOND grandchild (Number 3 is on the way!) “Little boys should never be sent to bed. They always wake up a day older!” – Peter Pan
We are so proud of Cecilia.  She’s a true woman of God. She graduated in May and will be traveling to England for a month to study writing at Cambridge and then Oxford.  “If I could give you one thing in life, it would be the ability to see yourself through my eyes.”
One of the very best moments of my life was watching the sunrise with my two oldest boys. “Making the decision to have a child – it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ” ― Elizabeth Stone

 

“If I can help it, my home won’t be another story of “growing up in a Christian home” as opposed to a home completely sold out to the true heart of God!  I want them to be able to say “I grew up in a home of radical faith and we followed Jesus everywhere!” – Brock Johnson, friend and missionary

  5. Hi George and Vonda, I wanted to let you know that Dick and I are bringing our 17 year old granddaughter to Guatamala in June. We plan to visit Pastor Araceli’s orphanage for a few days and we would love to spend a day or two with you. Britton is fluent in Spanish. If there is any way we could help out while we are there we would love to. It will probably be mid to later June.
