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.

Me and My Girls - Long Ago

Kristi's blog yesterday caused us to go on a search for pictures of Kristi/Jennifer driving the carnival cars at the 1982 World's Fair.  We found them...and a whole bunch more.  I'll be posting a lot of them, now that I'm figuring out how to use our copier as a JPEG scanner!  

I wanted to start with this picture, because it's always been a favorite of mine.  It was taken in our house at Johnson Bible College when the girls were probably 5 & 2 or 6 & 3.  I always loved this picture, and seeing it reminds me again of how much they look like Haley and Lexi.  (I'm seeing Emily in Jennifer here, too!) It's so neat to relive those experiences through your grandchildren!

Love it, love it, love it! My family loves going through those old photos too, and seeing my generation at the age our kids are at now. Also, Kristi's hair is AWESOME!

okay, seriously...I am pretty sure I just saw Haley make that exact face on Sunday---she really does look like her mom! You are right, I can see some of Emily in that picture of me. That's really neat to see! Everyone always says she's a mini Brian so it's nice to know that she does look somewhat like me!

Isn't grandparenthood great? Even though Jennifer's second is a girl and ours was a boy, her first is so much like her and her second is so much like our son.
