Family time

I just love my family!!

this is all of the grandchildren and great grandchildren with my grandmother!!

all of the granddaughters

my mother, aunt, and all of the kids!!

Easter was fun. and He is still alive today, it did not end yesterday, AMEN.we had a great day yesterday at church.. it was a full house.. and afterwards, we had a yummazing lunch with our was so good to get together, and eat, and laugh, and fellowship together.. Family is so important, because they are not always gonna be there, so, cherish the time you have together, while you can.. we sure did miss my Uncle Vick yesterday.. it seemed so wierd, getting out of the car, and him, not sitting there on the front porch to greet me.. But he had the best EASTER ever in Heaven, i am sure... Cherish your family time together, you never know what will happen.
Be thankful for your family.

Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God. 2 Corinthians 9:11

we were priveleged to go with the youth from church to the annual teen campmeeting they have every year with Bro. Tony Hutson. our Pastor preaches there every year and we take a bus load of teens there for a few days!! it was wonderful as always!! it is always great to go to other churches that worship they way you do, and you can feel the Spirit of the Lord,and His blessings on our young people.. we started up to Tn on thursday morning, arrived late thursday afternoon, got checked in, ate a pizza supper, had a few devotions, brought to us by a few of our Preacher boys..and then the kids swam, and played games and such, had a testimony time, and got ready for friday's FULL day of meetings. friday was a full day, really.. we had a morning service, came back, ate a good meal, then went back to hotel for rest,and swimtime, and then got ready for friday night's service.. it was great!! we had a good service, so good, that at 1100 pm, Bro. tony broke for supper(HAHA), and went at it again till about 100am.. we arrived back at the hotel going on 2am!! needless to say, not a lot of rest, and then went back on saturday morning!!! it was great.. we left there and headed back home, and got back around 12 on saturday night.. we had a wonderful time, and had a great time of fellowship too!! the LORD is good!! the teens had a time of testimony time on Sunday, telling everybody at church about the meeting.. we heard about 12 different Preachers while we were there, and had a great time in God's house!!
