Together Again

Scott and Abby arrived in Houston last Saturday!!!  It was almost 2 years to the date, of when they went to live in Central Asia, that they came home to visit again.  Scott commented that this was the longest time that he had been away from his Tallowood family and our family in his entire life.  What a joy to have them here for these days.  Last Sunday, our family of 9 was all together for the first time.  There was such a special time of fellowship as we ate, visited and visited some more.

And the celebration and family time continue.  Friday night at the wedding rehearsal we were with lots of family and friends.  

 Today we will all be together for worship as Chad and Lori exchange vows at their marriage ceremony and become a family of three. 

And just like Jesus’ mother, I want to treasure these times in my heart…for now and later. 

Luke 2:19
But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.

Today is the 146th day of the year. 
Psalm 146
Praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord, O my soul.
    I will praise the Lord all my life;
    I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
Do not put your trust in princes,
    in mortal men, who cannot save.
When their spirit departs, they return to the ground;
    on that very day their plans come to nothing.
Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
              whose hope is in the Lord his God,
the Maker of heaven and earth,

    the sea, and everything in them—
    the Lord, who remains faithful forever.
He upholds the cause of the oppressed
    and gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets prisoners free,
    the Lord gives sight to the blind,
the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down,
    the Lord loves the righteous.
The Lord watches over the alien
    and sustains the fatherless and the widow,
    but he frustrates the ways of the wicked.
10 The Lord reigns forever,
             your God, O Zion, for all generations.
Praise the Lord.
