Saturday Playtime



Our two oldest boys, Brian and Doug, were here Saturday with Brian's three children and Doug's oldest daughter, Amber. Of course, Doug lives here at the present time and Amber comes almost every weekend. After lunch and Brian's one year old, Rebecca took a nap in the PAC-N-PLAY and Elijah, the three year old found some of the old Fisher Price toys to play with, Doug and Amber and Brian and his oldest, David decided to play a game of tag football. I'm not sure who one the game or if it really matters to any of them.

It was so nice to see our oldest boys 'at play' again with their own children that I feel as if I may have been the one to win! There was a long time of Doug not coming around when his brothers and sisters were here and I think it was all because of the gal he was with for so long. He's no longer with that gal and we are all happy about it. Our Doug, as we knew him before her, is back with us. And we can now enjoy him more than ever.



We weren't sure we would ever see the 'old' Doug return but a lot of prayers (and a mom never gives up hope) God has answered our prayers and showed Doug the way back to us. GOD IS GOOD!!!

Oh, Holy God! You have lifted Martie up and placed her on holy ground! What an awesome, inexplicable blessing for a Momma :) What an incredible gift :) Lord, I pray that You would continue to love Doug through his healing and continue to draw him and woo him unto You for Your good pleasure and his good. Protect his children, Lord; keep them safe in a miraculous way. Cover and seal them with the blood of Jesus and protect them Lord; keep them safe in Your strong and mighty arms. Yes, it was Martie who "won!" Thanks for giving her the gift of this win ;) I love You, Ame

Dear Martie,
It is so good to hear your son is back with you and the pictures say everything. Hope you have many more pictures to show us in the future.

Hugs,
