The Circle of Life!

As we are finally getting things in order here at home, we are getting back to our old projects.
One of those being putting all our pictures in order.  Which is no easy task... I was very good about putting pictures in albums when we were first married, and when our first daughter was born.  However after that they all went into a shoebox, after shoebox, after shoebox.  Did I tell you we like to take pictures? Lol!
Back in the 90's when scrap booking was popular I started scrap booking recent pictures and got about 5 years worth of pictures done, however, the books quickly "fell apart" with all the weight of the extra paper... oh well.
They got taken apart and added to the pile.
Recently we were putting the year 1997 to "bed", and here are a couple of pictures that were in there.
This is our newborn Summer.
Here is Sherry and Shawna. Shawna is her step daughter.
Now somehow we do not think feel we have gotten older until we look back at our treasured pictures, and we realize that yes, we have, but we are also very blessed!
Here are those girls today.
This weekend they had a Happy 16th birthday party for Summer (60's theme of course... She loves the Beatles like her Mom), and here is Summer, Shawna (expecting twins soon) and honey Patrick. 
So here we are full circle, our "baby" daughter is about to be Grandma again!
Life is good here for Ma and Pa

Committment and Faith.... and God!

Well it is bragging time for Ma and Pa.
Our middle daughter Julie Berg has been a Mary Kay Lady for 19 years.  During that time she has moved several times and had to start her business from scratch.  But she held onto a dream.
Some day.... "I will be a Mary Kay Director, and drive a Mary Kay Car."
She has been working so hard, and 4 months ago began the run to earn her car, and also to qualify for 4 months to become Director.
 She and her team "Berg Believers" had a verse for this that they held onto.
Proverbs 16:3 says "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans."  
Here is the results!
Here is the beautiful car that will soon be delivered to her.  They are making it just for her with "Mary Kay" highlights.
She got her pin, and will soon have her Director Debut...
Not only did she become director but she helped 2 of her friends become directors also!
Here is the director trio!  Julie is in the middle.
Needless to say... Ma and Pa are bustin buttons proud of our girl!  And this is just the beginning of a new chapter in her life.
Thank you Lord for honoring our girl with her commitment to you and her team!
Stay tuned for Car delivery and Director Debut pictures :).
Proud as Peacocks,
Ma and Pa
