from Proverbs 31
She loved freely and lived her faith
Believed in others and saw the best in them
Was slow to criticize or assign blame
Went out of her way to praise and encourage
Taught her charges to respect others
Set the example of unselfishness and the joy in giving
Always pointed to prayer as the best solution
Had the gift of hospitality
Supported her husband - no matter what
Insisted upon punctuality and responsibility
Was never comfortable with gossip
Refused to entertain tattlers
She possessed a quiet, gentle spirit
Loved Jesus with all her heart
Walked with Him all her days.
She was and still is one of my most treasured blessings.
I miss her so much.
In memory of my mother, Edith Knight Wilson who died in 1994 along with my father in an automobile accident.

Pedicures will be offered. Delicious meals and yummies will be shared and the funniest stories and the most outlandish fashions will abound. It will be fun.
We will be leaving our hubbies and kiddies and laundry and responsibilities behind, except that most important of responsibilities - to remember WHOSE we are and to represent HIM wherever we go and in whatever we do. After all - He is the author of LOVE and it all began with HIM.

There is a time for quiet, pensive music and listening to such can bring us closer to the Lord. During worship services He must be our focus, not the mode of music. Everything we do in worship should be moving towards our focus on Him. When we are too focused on personalities and our preferences in preaching or music style, etc. we get all blurry and out of focus. Blessed is the congregation who has leaders who are consecrated to the task, organized, prepared, and focused on God. After all - it is about Him.
Recently we have been blessed to visit with family in several different churches and have appreciated the different styles of worship and music. Thank you, Lord, for all your servants who work hard to just be well tuned instruments in Your work.

Here are our little snowbunnies. Paisley is tasting her first snow. Abby is 100%
prepared and bundled up to go make a snowman. Carter is positioned for some
fast sledding and Hayleigh is about to boogie board down the driveway! These
are some fun loving grandkids the Lord has sent our way. It's wonderful to see
their smiling faces and know that He has them in the palm of His hand.
