John and I have been married for over twenty five years. From the day we said “I do”, it has been quite an adventure. One of the biggest things people notice about our family is the size. Yes, there are six kids, proof that God has a sense of humor. I tell people that ask if we are done with six. “No” I promptly reply. “We were done at four! But the last two were too cute to send back.”
At one point we had one kid in driver’s training and one in potty training. Crazy, but we wouldn’t trade it for anything.
We live in the Sierra Mountains where John runs a saw mill and I am a mom who writes and chases down missing homework assignments. John and I are both in the Moonlight Swing Big Band. It is a 21 piece Glenn Miller tribute band which performs in Northern California. I am one of the vocalists and have to say it is the funnest music I have ever done from a time period when women wore hats and gloves to the market.
Life is full of joy and expectation but there are times of disappointments and unexpected change. That is just life. One thing we know without a doubt is that God is faithful-today, tomorrow and forever. His love is immeasurable, His grace unfathomable and His joy uncontainable.
“The Lord is my strength and my song: He has become my salvation.” Psalms 118:14
