Almost 7 years!

On Monday, Jody and I will have been married for 7 years. What a complete privilege to have such a wonderful man to be my husband. I thank the Lord a million times over for the honor to be his wife!! We celebrated today by enjoying an outing to Abilene, where we had a yummy Mexican meal, went to Target, and the mall. It was an extremely enjoyable time. My sweet mommy and dad watched our Mikayla. sigh. They took such good care of her:)

And while celebrating our marriage, we also celebrate the birth of our nephew Ian Gregory Ledbetter. What a boy he is!! He'll be 5! on Monday, and he'll be starting school this year. I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! It doesn't seem too long ago that I saw him enter this world. He's SUCH a joy. I always tell him that he's my favorite Ian Gregory Ledbetter EVER. I think he likes that. His mommy sometimes tells him that he's special, and he says, I know, Aunt Sarah always tells me that. Yay:)

THANK YOU, sweet sweet ladies for your kindness, prayers, and all you've done for us. We got a very pretty plant from the florist today with NO SIGNATURE, which reads:

As you mourn and rejoice over
Jada's brief life, we pray
that God's peace will rule in
your hearts.
We love you

That was so beautifully put. It definitely made me cry for happiness- that somebody would think of us so lovingly. I'd better hurry and post this before it kicks me offline. We've had a most blessed day and we thank the Lord for that!

ps. We ordered a mother's ring today- should be coming in the mail in 2-3 weeks. It means so much to me that Jody would want to do that for me.

Happy Annie! Glad you had a fun time--but it wasn't more fun than I had with that Miggy-girl! She walks! She is a complete joy. Thanks for the privilege, and let's do it again sometime. Thanks for the pecans, too (shhh! hope dad doesn't read this...).

Happy Anniversary! When we read Jody's January family newsletter... we could tell that he was a godly man... crazy in love with you and pursuing the Lord above all. You guys both hold up a high example of marriage and I love it and love you. And we love our Mikayla picture that was a fun addition. Nephews are so fun! I can't wait to see mine. Okay... back to work. Praying for you! Love you!

Sarah you wanted me to head up the memory verse for the week for whoever wants to be in on it so here it goes. GOAL....memorize Proverbs 8:17....when memorizing it has to be word perfect or no credit will be given....keep in mind no excuses...DUE DATE...February 25th!!! Love you all
