Vacation Part 2~

We spent the rest of the week with our fabulous COUSINS!

My dear sweet cousin Deborah and her family have such a gift of hospitality. I believe at all times there were between 25 and 50 people coming and going. The love of Jesus just shines through them all.



We had to laugh one morning as we came across this article helping people not too have too many overnight guests at the Holidays. HA! So glad Deborah uses Hebrews 13:2 as her guide rather than modern magazines. She actually has it stenciled on her kitchen wall.




Oh these two are going to take on the world one day. They are just awesome together. So glad God made them family.




Our Sweet youngest daughters-there is always something yummy cooking at Deborah's House..




And always someone to give you a boost..



Love is spoken..




And iron is sharpened..



Memories are made..



And goals are accomplished..
(I just love that SHE is still standing amidst those boys on the ground)



Creativity blossoms..

(Wee Boy gives great faux haks ;0)




And the peace of God dwells there.

We are so thankful for our sweet family and for the time God gives us together.

Awww... love that your cousin doesn't follow modern protocol. I would love nothing more than to have a house full of company.
J & ER have the most infectious smiles.
The sleeping boys........ little angels.
