Last night at our house.....



JACOB GOT SAVED!!! We are having revival meetings at our church this week. Every night Bro. David Harrison has been right on target in his preaching! Last night he preached on revival. Jacob always goes to the altar with Peter, so I really didn't think anything about it. As soon as we got home last night, he said,"Dad, I need to talk to you." Peter went into the office with him. We have been talk to Jacob about salvation for a long time. We told him it would be the Lord speaking to his heart about when to get saved. Jacob said that when he went up to pray, he knew that Lord was telling him to get saved. He said,"Mommy, I almost cried." Peter led him to the Lord, and you could just see how happy and relieved Jacob was! He was hugging everyone and smiling! We called all our family to tell them the good news! And we celebrated with popcorn! I am so thankful that God hasn't forgotten about us and is still in the saving business!!!! Praise the Lord!






Another thing God has done for me is put me back in touch with some of my closest friends from years ago. This is picture of me and my best friend when I was in elementary and junior high school. My mom gave her my email address and we have not stopped talking since! I would have never imagined we would be together again. When we saw each other for the first time, we couldn't stop talking! We are so alike it is scary! Our kids are about the same ages, and we are still serving the Lord. This is Sarah with her daughter Selah, and me with Liberty. Praise the Lord for good friends!

YEAH!! SMILES!! I KNOW THAT YOU ARE THRILLED ABOUT JACOB!! I AM CELEBRATING AND PRAISING THE LORD WITH YOU!!

What a good looking family picture you added on the side of your blog!!

I am glad that you have gotten back together with your long lost friend and that you still are two peas in a pod. Tell her I am a little bit jealous that it is not me! :) I have reconnected with my long lost friend from elementary to high school also. However, we don't have too much in common any more, mostly because she hasn't been married yet.
