brightly colored birthday celebrations
baby brothers enjoying their cake
baby brothers waiting for their cake,
and feeling special on your own special day.
p.s. can you tell which Johnson has a healthy fear of fire?

This one likes to play Mama sometimes
This one is generally game to play baby
Life is good when you're the baby
Except when "nap time" goes on a little too long and he's all
"I'm outta here"

These 40 years
40 years of marriage
40 years of sacrificial love
40 years of moving around the world
40 years of setting Christ as the center
40 years of growing a family of 4
into a family of 11
40 years of sacrifice
40 years of laughter
40 years of always coming home,
knowing we are not home yet
40 years of example
40 years of non-ceasing prayer
40 years of gentle guidance
40 years of mornings spent lingering over breakfast
40 years of coffee
40 years of faithfulness
40 years of adventures
Today, as I sat in Church and watched as Greg was installed as Associate Pastor
I thought about prayers answered 8 years after they were first whispered
I thought about our 13 years together
and the 40 x 40 more years to come
I thought about the marriages of friends breaking apart
of people walking away from their covenants with one another and with God
And, I thought about 40 years
and all that God has blessed me with,
as we celebrate
these 40 years.
For the Lord is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.

There is a thief in my house
At certain times of the day
The soup spoons go missing
Questions are asked
Denials are given
But, not much gets by this Mama
