As I indicated on this photo, it was during our wedding vacation time [the wedding was September 21, '85] and it was a huge blessing for me to be in Lake Superior. I was an ocean addict since I was a kid when born in Portland and raised in Vancouver, Tacoma, Klickitat and working in Seattle. I was 28 when the Lord moved me out of California to Omaha, and, formerly, I had been seeing the Pacific Ocean from Washington, Oregon, and California. I had never been up to Lake Superior to see this and it was a really wonderful gift from my husband -- it looked like an "ocean". He'd been born and raised in the Twin Cities and he was at the Offutt Airforce Base. And I had been in Omaha. The Lord suddenly put us together at a church. What a blessing to have such a wonderful husband and he was wonderful for my daughter and son then and now for six grandkids. They all put up with me, BUT they all love him so much.
|Our Wedding and Renae was 15 and Steve was 12; they loved him then!|
|They love him now... and this was a couple years ago!|
[ Surprisingly, I was dropped in and encouraged through a Portland Avenue Baptist Church in Tacoma, WA, March, '66. I never had had a picture of that until April, 2014. A friend who wanted to know of me re: my age situation, she drive all around my former Tacoma area when I was visiting there. Well, she was so excited to see this church. It ain't Baptist any more and hasn't been for about 20 years, but other things have been in it, and it's still being used by some sorts of Godly-Words. So that was a picture of me with it in August, 2014.]
Bless you all. I don't know when/how I'll keep blogging, b/c my dementia has increased significantly and I can't read and write very well, very often... even though I'd done it since I was about 6 years old in Klickitat,WA, in the first grade of school. Now, I can't do anything very well.
BUT I love the Lord and -- moment-by-moment, day-by-day, night-by-night -- I worship, rejoice, glorify, and honor!
