Raider Power


Remember this precious picture of Abenezer? This is the very first time that we saw his face and were simply blown away by the sweet provision of our Lord to place him in a Texas Tech outfit.

For all of you Longhorn fans that are still a little blue from the loss on Saturday night, I'm pretty sure the mighty Red Raiders pulled it out for Abe! It is hard to be mad about that right?

Lets just say that the victory made Abe's daddy really, really happy! This is the sport court that he insisted on putting in our backyard when we built our house! Oh, I gave up long ago on trying to temper his love affair with the Red Raiders! :)

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. "The Lord is my portion," says my soul, "therefore I will hope in him." Lamentations 3:22-24

His grace is sufficient for us moment by moment! Thank you for standing in the gap for us, the prayers and support have been such a huge encouragement to us.

Two things: the bath picture looks a lot like little Joe at the same age, and the crooked smile is from his Bunty!! Precious boy and he had an awesome debut yesterday. What a trooper to let all those women muss his hair and love on him.
Blessings to all today!
