23 Already!

Shannon, my oldest daughter, is turning 23 this Wednesday. It's always hard to believe how much your kids are growing up. Yikes!!

Recently, she and I were able to travel to Tennessee for a big family reunion. While there,
I was able to witness her
maturity and personality in so many venues...with old & young family members alike. She has truly become a woman of faith, love and craziness that so many people enjoy and care for.

A Proverb comes to mind that really applies to how I feel about her..."The father of godly children has cause for joy. What a pleasure it is to have wise children." (23:24)

In a culture where parents dislike, degrade and even disown their kids, it feels great to be incredibly proud of ALL of mine.
