Birthday Girl

20 years ago yesterday, May 22, 1991, Suzanne joined our family. She has been a real blessing to us. What a privilege God gave us to raise this special gift! 

When she was only three months old we took her to Niger where she grew up.  As you can imagine, she drew a lot of attention.  The European women would always stop me in stores to coo over her and exclaim, "Quelle poupee!"  (There should be an accent over one of those e's).  That means, "What a doll!"  The Nigeriens were always amazed with her white hair.  I could post picture after picture of her growing up in Niger, but this one is one of my favorites. 

There was a Suzanne (Susanna) in the Bible.  Do you know who she is and what she did?  She is mentioned in Luke 8:1-3 which says:
1 After this, Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve were with him, 2 and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (…

Engagement Shoot

We have just moved from MD back to PA.  The house is in disorder and I have no time to blog.  So I'm just going to post a few pictures I took of my nephew and his fiancee. 










College Graduation

Wow.  Was it only four years ago that Daniel was graduating from high school and now he's graduated from college?!


Graduation at Cedarville was quite the event.  Daniel's Grandpa and Grandma Hall were able to be here as well as us.  Graduation started at 10 and we were there just after 8:30 and there was already a long line waiting to get in.  By the time we got in, the really good seats were taken, but ours wasn't too bad.  We had a good view of the stage, anyway.  But I couldn't see the graduates as they came in....just a few peeks at mortarboards bobbing down the aisle between the heads of people around me.  The graduates were coming down two aisles and I had no idea what aisle Daniel would come down....the one closest to us or the one farther away.  I decided to just take a picture of the screen, so I aimed my camera and snapped.  Just as I snapped the picture, they changed the camera angle to a different view of the graduates and when I looked at my picture on my s…

Azaleas

My favorite spring flowers are lilacs.  But after having spent a spring in Maryland, I'd have to say azaleas run a close second now!  They are everywhere down here and in every color imaginable:  red, pink, coral, purple, yellow, and white.  OK, not black or green.
There are a whole lot of them in the woods outside our apartment and we can see them as we eat at our table. I have no idea if they grow wild or if somebody planted them there.  Then on the campus here (Washington Bible College & Capital Bible Seminary) there is a prayer garden with benches and nothing but azaleas.  One morning I took my Bible and notebooks out there and had my devotions there.

John and I went out with the camera and tripod and took pictures of ourselves in the prayer garden.  I love this pictures and hope you enjoy them, too!

When I see the beauty of the azaleas, I am struck by the awesomeness of our Creator God.  How could so many colors have "just happened"?  And what big bang could have …
