I couldn't believe it last evening as we were all
settled in around the table at Angela's Cafe'.
There we were to honor four sweet young ladies
of the church and I left my camera in the car.
|Chelsea and Emma...again from Chelsea's Photo Files.|
|Mindy and Hannah being silly at a recent picnic.|
Well, it was more than 90 degrees outside and we were
having fun and were comfy inside and so I decided
that photos were optional.
Besides as I looked down the table I saw
Chelsea's camera and was quite sure she was
That was a wrong assumption.
She didn't take one!
Well, it is ok.
The evening was sweet.
We each shared in our own ways a
message of love and hope with the girls.
We recognized that they are preparing for
a new stage in their lives and that we want them to
do so in an intentional way....
with their focus always on the Word.
My Mom did a very cute presentation to them

She had brought a mixing bowl,
a vintage Betty Crocker Cookbook
and lots of items that definitely

She pointed out that you cannot get delicious
chocolate cake by just using any old thing.
You have to follow the actual recipe to get
the desired result.
It was so cool.
I think they will remember that one.
The evening finished off as we drove home...
Mom, Georgia, Chelsea, Me, Mindy
and Hannah in the van.
We ran into a doozy of a storm.
As we passed through the front edge the
wind picked up, the rain came down and stuff
was flying through the air.
Something smacked into the windshield with
a huge crack.
Thankfully the windshield held.
We screamed and then I found a driveway
to turn into.
We had to get off the road!
Unfortunately for the resident teenager in this
He was running around his
living room in his undies.
He quickly drew the shades and we sat in the
driveway praying that the storm would
pass by quickly.
I was so thankful for the placement of that
We do feel so badly for any trauma we
may have given that young man.
We made memories though.....
More wonderful memories.
