My boys are here for their last visit of the Summer. Allen and Adam are our godsons, and we have had the immeasurable blessing of keeping them often since they were born. Al is the oldest, 12 years old now. He was undoubtably the most laid back baby I’ve ever known! He is a jolly young man for the most part, although his little brother can really get to him! Adam is 7. Their birthdays are 3 days less than 5 years apart. They are either best buds, or fighting like cats and dogs – sometimes actually at the same time! We enjoy our time with them, and hope they enjoy it, too. I dread the thought that they might get to that age that Aunt Nina’s house is no longer fun.
Here are some wonderful photos that Dannye Reigh took at church today…
I had the privilege a couple of years ago of praying with Allen to receive Christ as his Savior! What a joy!! Bill was even allowed by Al’s church to be in the baptismal pool when he was baptized! We are now praying for Adam to come to an understanding of his need for Christ. Both boys also have the blessing of living part-time with their Grammy (my sister), who shares God’s love with them.
During the school year we mostly only get the boys on holidays, so this last visit of the Summer is kinda bittersweet. I find myself counting the days until our Family Reunion in October!
May God bless your week!
