2 special celebrations for 2 Special guys on 1 fantastic day!

Well y’all, two monumental occasions in 1 day= a SUPER post!! ;) It’s Father’s Day aaaannndd Abel’s birthday!

First off, to a Dad truly like no other, HAAAPPPPYY  Father’s day! I could try to describe how much hard work, patience, practicality, prudence, and perseverance have been pumped into the last 31 years by my Dad.  I could let y’all know that he has SURVIVED 140 months {11.7 years} of pregnancy, maintained a stable level of sanity in a house that holds 7 females[which is pretty much unbelievable! ;], changed thousands of diapers, spent dozens of sleepless nights either working to provide for his family or walking sleepless babies but that wouldn’t even begin to scratch the surface of how spectacular my Dad is and how thankful we are to The Lord for him! 31 years and 14 kiddos later and my Dad is still going strong. ;D So, a simple but tremendously heartfelt “THANK YOU” will have to do. You have truly given your life to raise you children and have blessed us all so much!❥

“The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.”
Proverbs 20:7

ABEL!!!!! Your day has finally come! It’s the day you have been waiting for for and talking about and counting down for 364 days… believe it or not…. IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY! I dubbed you Mr. Happy way back and still think the name is quite fitting ’cause you have definitely added a quirky smile to my life. :) You’re the first one awake each morning and always the first to wish me a “howdy” when I roll out of my room early in the morning[you get to see me in my raw state of “simi-awakedness”]. ;) Your style is super classy, your famous pb&j quesadillas are… quite interesting, and your diligence is extremely inspiring! One day I see you riding off and becoming a missionary to some far off land, marrying some blessed little lady, and raising up a brood crazy kids but for today I am super thankful your here with me and blessed to have you as my brother! Happiest of birthdays to you ABEL! I look forward to seeing what The Lord has in store for your future!!

So, to Abel & Dad:May your belly never grumble, may your heart never ache, may your horse never stumble, may your cinch never break.

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”
Psalms 1:1-2

The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:
The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

Numbers 6:24-26

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20
