“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

A Blast From the Past
The boys were close in age. Not quite as close as the girls as that would have been physically impossible since none of them are twins. :) There are 4 years and 9 months between the 4 of them.
We had a wonderful time raising these guys, so much so, that we are doing it all over again except there are dresses, high heels and barbies in our house now. None of those would have been found in our home before. At least not in a kid size :)
If you go to my side bar.... 3 of the kids wives blog. One is our youngest son's wife Ivy. "The life of Little Eunice". Then there is our son Tim's wife, Emily. "God's mercy displayed". BTW- Ivy and Emily are sisters AND sisters in law. Which means, Tim and Marc are brothers AND brothers in law. I think that makes the kids double cousins or something like that. :)
Then there is Joe's wife Becca. She has 2 blogs. Rebecca's Art, and "It's Not Easy Being Green".
Chuck and Jodie don't blog right now....
I adore each and every one of my boys and daughters in law. And between all of them, if OLIVIA EVER decides to make an entrance, we have 10 grand children. :)
All of this is leading up to my next post. It is about our oldest son Charlton, and our youngest son Marcus, and something that happened a long time ago.... It was restored today. :)
