Weddings, Baptisms & Ordinations!

This past weekend was a busy but wonderful weekend. There was happiness all around!! First we had a lovely wedding for my little brother, he isn't exactly little but he IS younger! It was beautiful. Ashley (my brother) and Britney (his wife) have been together for 5 years and they have a little one, Jake (my nephew). The wedding was at the Paul V. Berry park here in Wilson N.C. and the reception was at a beautiful school auditorium just across the street. The school has been there for many many years and has just recently been renovated. It made for some beautiful pictures!

So congrats to you Ashley & Britney! The wedding was perfect and you two looked amazing! May GOD continue to bless you and your family! We love you both!

Next on our list of festivities this weekend was the baptism of our sweet little girl. It was a very special baptism because her grandfather was ordained a Deacon in our Church Saturday and was able to baptize Ava yesterday!! It is truly a special event all on it's on but having her grandfather do the ceremony made it all the more special for us. We were also lucky to have such wonderful friends and family attend the baptism. Being that the wedding was the day before we had lots of family down and they were also able to come for Ava's special day.
After the baptism we had a reception in the church school gym for Michel (my father-in-law) for his ordination. It was filled with food, family and beautiful little people!!

So congratulations Ashley, Britney & Jake. You are a beautiful family and we love you very much.

Congratulations to my wonderful father-in-law for your ordination. It was truly a honor to have you baptize Ava. It made our day twice as special!

And congratulations little Ava! You are a perfect little girl and we thank GOD for you each and every day!

And a very very special thank you to Lori & Ann and the girls for being here for us (Ashley & Britney too)! It means so much. And thank you Mark & Liz for coming down and spending this time with us too, you are great friends and we can't wait to get together again SOON!!

Ordinary Miracles

It's not that unusual
When everything is beautiful
It's just another ordinary miracle today.

The sky knows when it's time to snow
You can't teach a seed to grow
It's just another ordinary miracle today.

Life is like a gift they say

Wrapped up for you everyday

Open up and find a way

To give some of your own.

Isn't it remarkable

Like every time a raindrop falls

It's just another ordinary miracle today.

Birds in winter have their fling

Will always make it home by spring

It's just another ordinary miracle today.

When you wake up everyday

Please don't throw your dreams away

Hold them close to your heart

Cause we are all part of the ordinary day

It seems so exceptional
That things just work out after all
It's just another ordinary miracle today

Sun comes up and shines so bright

And disappears again at night

It's just another ordinary miracle today.
