what we've been up to this week

Princess party for a friend

Veggie Tales Live show

This week was a busy one. We started last weekend with a Veggie Tales Live show. Abby loves Veggie Tales and we thought for sure she would love the show. She didn't love it, but she did enjoy herself and we were all ok with leaving at intermission! The next day, we went to a fun princess birthday party for a friend and neighbor. Abby loves to dress up, so this was right up her alley!

We got a phone call over the weekend that made everyone in my family very sad. My brother's best friend was killed in a horrible car accident over the weekend. David has a precious wife and two children - Benjamin is 2 and Katherine is 3 months old. David lived life well and everyone who knew him loved him.

We headed to Little Rock to be there for the visitation and funeral. The service was precious, but it is always so hard to understand why things like this happen. As I sat at the funeral and could not even sing without tears (and the ugly cry) I looked over at David's wife who was singing loudly and raising her hands praising the Lord. What a testimony. Please pray for Sabrina, David's mom and sister who are left behind to miss him. What a man of God he was.
