Dad and Mom remember a little over 21 years ago that the doctor suspected twins. We were sure it was an extra bit of weight gained or excess water - not twins - we were too ordinary a family for something so unordinary. But the ultrasound showed two babies. We were a bit overwhelmed to say the least. When Mike and Dan were born, we had 4 children under the age of 4!

Mike (4 minutes older) and Dan have grown up always being best friends as well as being quite competitive with each other!

In this new season of life, although too unordinary to seemingly be true, we are learning more about God's sustaining grace. Dan's content spirit continues to amaze us. We can't imagine what God has in store for us, but we know that "in Thee we trust and are not disappointed."

Happy Birthday Mike & Dan! Dan, we are so glad the surgery went well. We will be praying that healing will come quickly and that with that healing you will generally "feel better" most of the time! Mike, have a safe trip to the next sports camp. We will be praying for you also. Jen & Jeff and Bill, we will be praying for a safe trip for you all. And Jen & Jeff - may God richly bless your new life together as you honor and obey Him! We love you all so very much!

Sounds like you guys are having a busy summer and I hope you have a wonderful day. It is sure hot down here in Texas but it has been a great experience so far. You have better eaten all of that cake(it looks so yummy from the picture)!

Take care, be safe, and stay strong.
