I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread. Ps. 37:25

We are grateful for many things right now and just wanted to offer that in writing – thanking the […]

So out of this habit it’s ridiculous.  So guess I’ll just start with a small post.  I never finished the Christmas newsletter picture section – but will just start over with that next Christmas season!

24 years ago part 2   Leave a comment

more on Chris’s birth —   So then we knew we were staying.  Roger sacked out on the pull-out couch and napped for the earlier part of my labor, during which I was able to sit in the rocker for a while, recording some things in my baby book, and walk to the nursery and […]
