The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

Happy 85th Birthday Maw Maw

Today is Maw Maw's actual birthday.... 85 years =) We celebrated at my house Friday night and she was SO surprised! It was great to have everyone here and celebrate with her.... only I sure missed Paw Paw not being here for it! Before everyone got here Sam asked if he could have one of the balloons to let go up to heaven for Paw Paw so he could be a part of the party!! So he picked a yellow one... wrote I love you Paw Paw on it and drew a sunshine all by himself and then brought it to me. My eyes just filled with tears. I am so thankful that Sam still talks about an remembers Paw Paw since he was 3 when he passed away. So off Sam and I went outside and we sent that balloon right up to Paw Paw =)

When everyone arrived we had some good ole bar-b-q sandwhiches, chicken, potatoe salad, baked beans, and of course what would a party be without some CaKe!

I love you Maw Maw! Hope you had a wonderful birthday and that 2010 will be great year for you =)
