Rollicking Ring Ceremony



We waited on God seven years for our baby boy. I lost three babies the year he was born. Britt was a miracle baby as I was in bed most of the pregnancy with problems. I remember touching his toe at his birth to see if he was really alive. And I remember saying, "He's yours, God." He still is! The baby boy grew up overnight and got his senior ring this week. He's at a brand new school since we moved to Austin this fall. He is making lifelong friends and we are so grateful to God for that! Moving during your junior year in high school is hard. But, we want to be where a good God calls us to be. I read Genesis 45:8 this evening---"It's not you who sent me here, but God." God, in His beautiful will and ways, has brought us to the place we are, not to solve all our problems nor help us master all the principles----but to find HIM there. He's here. He has been with us every step of the way. It's not our circumstances that have changed. God has brought us to this place! I so want to gladly surrender to HIM who holds us together. Col 1:17. So, we'll enjoy this ring ceremony knowing God sent us here.

It is so hard to see them grow so fast. Holding them in your arms for the first time to looking up to them when you talk happens in a blink of an eye. You're on my heart this morning, my sweet friend. Love you, Annette

Looks like a fun day! I sent a payment for the orphan's school on paypal or paypay as I like to call it...I actually typed that again when I was trying to get to their site. Just wanted to check and see if you recieved it. I thought I read something on here about your e-mail being different, so I wasn't sure how it all works now. I also have a different e-mail address skmedcalf@att.net. Let me know if it worked or didn't work.
