Date Night….12 dates in 12 months!!!! :)

19 02 2011

Dave and I have decided to do a date a month this year…..we would love more time together, but with Dave’s crazy work schedule we needed  to make a plan. 🙂

So, we are on Month 2….and we spent our date night in the ER.  Not only for a little while, but the whole next day too.  Dave was feeling ill the other day and kept saying he was fine.  Just a stomach ache.  No big deal he said…..but after a while it got worse….and worse.  I checked him out and told him I thought he was having a Appendicitis.  He didn’t think so, but after it was getting worse he went in.  After a Cat Scan they saw that it was for sure his Appendix and maybe an abscess.  (Which means it was leaking or about to rupture). 

We were at a smaller hospital so they had to call in the whole OR unit.  By 1 am they had finished the surgery and he was in recovery.

He is resting well and at home now.  He is off from UPS for 2 weeks, but will be able to get work done for the church from home.  We are so thankful in so many ways, God is so good. 🙂  His hand was in this and how things worked out.  Please pray for Dave as he is recovering, he is in a lot of pain at the moment.

Next month he better not try to top it. 🙂

Happy Birthday Isaac!!!!

12 02 2011

Wow, can you really be 7 years old?  Where has the time gone?  Just thinking that I only have a few more years to mold and shape you, before your on your own, makes me want to cry.  I can’t believe how fast the time goes, but oh how thankful I am for you.  You are an amazing kid!  It is such a delight to see you have a heart for eternal things.  Your love for people and missions amazes me!  You challenge me everyday and your wisdom is well beyond your years.

Our prayer for you is that God will continue to teach you, lead you and that you will obey His commands for your life.  He is your strength and your guide, lean on Him.

Thank you Isaac for being our son!  We could not be more happy with you. 🙂  Enjoy your 7th birthday, don’t rush it.  Adulthood will be here before you know it.  We love you!

Isaac’s passion is Baseball!  The kid plays it almost every minute of the day in the summer. 🙂

A favorite picture from this past year. 🙂

An event that happened this year was Isaac taking a step of obedience.  His understanding of eternal things amazes us.  He now says, “I have work to do for the church, I am apart of the body.” 

Happy Birthday Son!  We love you.
