Another Wedding

February 21st we had another wedding to attend. This time it was my nephew Conrad who was married to Vicky. It's just another reminder that i"m getting old with my son and nephews getting married. I pray that they will have a long and happy marriage. Sunday my father-in-law had his 80th birthday so we as a family celebrated his special day with him. Later we had some of their close friends drop in to surprise him. It was a busy week-end but it was fun. Here are some pictures of this week-ends events.

Febuary 7th was a big day for all of us. Clint and Tanya got married at Pequea Baptist Church and the reception was at the Shady Maple Banquet Hall. It was quite an exciting day for everyone. They had a live band at the reception and it was a high energy atmosphere filled with fun and dancing. Although I am extremely happy for both of them as they start their life together, I have mixed feelings not having Clint here at home with us but I know they will be happy together and I have inherited a daughter that I love very much. She will be a wonderful addition to our family. Here are some pictures of the wedding. Enjoy!

Febuary 2009

This week was filled with a whole range of emotions for me. As my progression keeps robbing me of my physical capabilities the process of getting adaptive equipment to make life easier can seem overwhelming at times. I struggle with the thought of becoming more and more reliant on others to help me with activities of daily living. But with God's help I am learning to accept the reality of it all. I am signed up with United Disability Services that will provide an aid to assist me with range of motion exercises, meal preparation and whatever I need help with while they are here.
Clint is getting married this Saturday and I am very excited for him and wish him and Tanya many happy years together. But this means he will no longer be here with us and I will miss his presence here in our home even though he's not here that much right now with the wedding coming up. He has been working at the home he bought in Ephrata just about every night this month.

My Mom who was very sick over the holidays and nearly died is doing so much better. She is doing very well and is in good spirits. It is nothing short of amazing the way she rebounded.

Please pray for Emy and I as we continue to face new challenges in our lives. Knowing that we have your support and prayers makes life much easier for us. We thank God for each one of you all and pray God's blessing on your lives.
