Memory Lane....

The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children. Psalm 115:14

Every once in a while, I go through my pictures. It always stops me in my tracks. I cannot believe how fast time goes by.

It makes me realize a few things...

Life is precious.
Life is fleeting.
Children grow.
Moments pass. Good ones and bad ones.
Love can be captured in a picture.
I have so much to be thankful for.
God is good.
Here are a few I came across...

Joseph's First Homecoming....

Well, if you have been following my blog since 2008, you know how this day must have felt for me. You know the tears I have cried over my kids growing up stages. You've seen it all splattered on the pages of this blog.
Well, guess what? God prepares your little heart for each stage. He really does! If you would have told me in 2008 that I would not have been a crying mess the day of my son's first Homecoming, I would have accused you of lying.
Joseph's first Homecoming was so much fun! We had no clue what we were doing, or what he should wear. Let me just say--things have changed since the early 90's when Lem and I went to homecoming. I mean, really changed.
So, after asking some of the parents with older homecoming age kids, we figured out the deal. Shew. Of course, this was after Mama Jane bought him his first suit. Oops. Apparently, suits are too dressy for homecoming these days. A jacket and khaki's are the thing.
Mama Jane, Joseph will wear his new suit to church every sunday and to every single holiday gathering. Okay??
Joseph went to homecoming with a sweet and beautiful girl named Lucia. She and Joseph have known each other for a very long time. Very cute little couple!
I will let the pictures do the talking from here on out...ok?
