Another Summer Read...

This has been a reading summer for me.
I love it!!!
It has been such a peaceful, happy 
and restful summer,
full of trips, family, fun and lots of rest.

Not every season is like this, 
as we all know who have lived
a "bit" of life, 
so we also know to 
Enjoy Fully the Peaceful Seasons.
That is what I have been doing, 
with lots and lots of books!

    The Midwife's Confession
           

Dear Anna,
What I have to tell you is difficult to write, but I know it will be far more difficult for you to hear, and I'm so sorry…
The unfinished letter is the only clue Tara and Emerson have to the reason behind their close friend Noelle's suicide. Everything they knew about Noelle—her calling as a midwife, her passion for causes, her love for her friends and family—desc

                      ENJOY!!!

I Love Wilbur...


'Wilbur blushed. "But I'm not terrific, Charlotte. I'm just average for a pig."

"You're terrific as far as I'm concerned," replied Charlotte, sweetly, "and that's what counts. You're my best friend, and I think you're sensational. Now 

stop arguing and go get some sleep."'

Birthday Girl!

Is solace anywhere more 
comforting than
in the arms of a sister.  

~Alice Walker

My wonderful sister just
 had a birthday.
After such a crazy year,
I am
CELEBRATING
HER!!!

Last year at this time 
she was at the beginning 
of her chemo treatments.

She is cancer FREE!
So...
 Do either one of us complain
 about turning another 
year older?
No Way!
Do we take any year, month, 
day, minute for granted?
No Way!

Every breath is a gift.
Celebrate every birthday 
with Enthusiasm!
Thank Our Father
 for the gift of life.

And, today, 
I am Thanking
Thanking 
Thanking God 
for the gift of My Sister!

I LOVE YOU SHERRIE!

Visit her at her blog-

Sherrie is the Little Sis in this picture.
So, So Cute!!!

Lacy's Wedding Part II

What an Amazing,
Wonderful, Magical,
Weekend FULL of FUN!!!
Lacy & Adonis are married!


They were so sweet to include Sherrie,
Allie and I in every event they had.
Sherrie on the right. I am on the left.
This is Sherrie and I getting ready 
to go to the rehearsal dinner.

Sherrie with our cousin, Becky,
who is the Mother of the Bride.
They are two amazing Beauties,
inside and out!
(Becky looks like she could be the sister of the bride, don't ya think?)
We were served Lebanese food. Lots and Lots of it!
Made by Ado's Mom and helpers.
DELICIOUS!!!
From left to right is our Gorgeous Allie,
(Sherries daughter)
Sherrie, Sweet Bride, Lacy ,
with her soon to be hubby, Ado.
Ado and Lacy did not, in any way, make this wedding
weekend about themselves.
They honored their parents, siblings, friends,
 family and God so much.
Their words to their parents and siblings at the 
dinner were priceless.
They are Wonderful Kids!

This is  Lacy's Daddy seeing her
for the first time in her wedding dress.

Sisters, Mindy & Becky, waiting
 for the wedding to begin.
Lacy with her dad and two sisters.
There is so much genuine love and 
respect in this very special family!
This is one of my favorites-
These two are hilarious together.
And, I have to tell you all,
Lacy was the sweetest, calmest bride I 
have Ever seen!
She made the day so pleasant 
and enjoyable for all.
Look at the faces in the pictures.
Her calm shows on every face.
Why not be nice?
The only music was this cellist. 
BEAUTIFUL!!!
Their ceremony was very simple 
but very God centered.
Her dad married them, and his heart
and words were so dear and
so honoring of marriage
 and of his own wife.
He talked a lot about servant hood
and respect for each other.

And, here is the 
Happy, Happy Couple
dancing their first dance!
Funnest reception ever!
Great food, great People and 
we danced for four hours straight!
There is so much more I could share,
so there may be more to come...
Much Love,
Joyce
