This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

Five Years Ago Today . . .

October 26, 2003
First Christian Church, Huntington Beach

Okay, so I'm posting this REALLY on Monday the 27th, but I pre-dated it so it would say October 26.  Hard to believe that it's been five years since Jennifer and Brian joined their lives together.  The 26th was also on Sunday in 2003 (there have been 2 leap years since--including this one), and the church building was full of smoke on the morning of the wedding.  Real smoke--from all the Santa Ana fires.  (Jimmy Cheesman actually played "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" during the ceremony!)

Lyn and I are so happy for Jen and Brian--and glad they got to have a great get-away weekend together. We had fun with the littlest Johnson (below) while they were away. Congratulations, Brian and Jennifer!  Here's to 55 more! (Anniversaries.  Not children.)

Emily loved the little ferris wheel toy
that Jennifer used to play with as a baby.

This is so sweet of you to post. I wish you were my dad. A few months AFTER my 32nd birthday my Mom called me very excited to start planning for my upcoming big 30th birthday! She was a bit late, but her intentions were good. I am glad there are parents in the world who do remember these things in time to wish their children well.
