It was Rachel's 25th birthday over the weekend. Wow!
She knew what she wanted for a celebration (I like a girl who knows what she wants and justs lets it be known--so much nicer than guessing!) and we were happy to oblige.
We started the weekend with fireworks and moved through the next day with a parade, cookout, gifts, cake and ice cream and goofy golf! The weather was perfect. We had a blast!
Since moving closer to us, I have enjoyed getting to know Rachel. We all have spent quite a bit of time traveling in the car, hanging out at home and doing life together.
Rachel has many admirable qualities. She is a devoted mother. She is driven to maintain her body and health. She has recently applied for and accepted a perfect job offer. She is kind. She loves her parents and siblings. She has a great laugh.
Most importantly, she loves the Lord.
It is our prayer that God would continue to lead Rachel to the fulfillment of His plan for her life. And that we would get to go along for the ride and cheer!
