Tattoos !!!!

One kid thinks we're crazy, the other kid thinks we're cool!

We went together to get our tattoos. Paul was excited and I was scared to death. Once my leg went numb it was tolerable! Now it seems like a memory, kinda like child-birth! We both knew what we wanted and are glad we did it! We thought we would explain what each one means. The dragonfly's symbol is to be reborn or rebirth. I am reborn in Christ. The cross represents my Savior's sacrifice for me and the scripture, Isaiah 12:2 "Surely the Lord is my salvation. I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord is my strength and my song."

Tattoo? this was the question that I had 8 months ago when I first thought of getting one. As a father that muttered the great words of our fathers before us ( if you get a tattoo you better move out ).
So here i was wanting a wrist tattoo and the thought what do I want for my permenant statement to anyone who i see on the street everyday.

Here we go: My Tattoo ( I AM ) What it means to me. It is the words that God told Moses to tell pharaoh to make sure that pharaoh knew of the sovereignty of God and that he was the only one with all the control.It was also the one thing that Jesus said time and again to let us know of his sovereignty. I Am the only way to the father, he also says in Revelations that I AM the begining and the end.
When I started to ponder what i wanted this was it I AM becasue he is everything. Nothing happens without God allowing it. That alone gives me great peace knowing that my Fahter in Heaven has my life in his hands. No matter what happens i know that he has the best for me.

This is what my Daughter asked Tina and I ( Are you having a mid life crisis ) Here is my response to the qestion. We might be but the great thing is that we are having it together! Tina and I are one flesh joined together in the sight of God and that God that said I AM was the one that gives us our love for one another and once again his love for us serves as our example of how to love each other: unconditionally! 23 years and growing closer now we choose to use our skin as a convas to further his love!

We loved the park one day, Ily wasnt' too sure about the slide. Aunt Cali went with her but the face tells it all.
Raeann loves the bubble maching Aunt Susan got her for her birthday. She knows how to turn it off and on, which is half the fun!
Ily is such a happy girl! Always has a smile unless she's hungry and needs a change!
Paul and Micah golfed an outing with Travis and took 1st place while we were there. They had a great time!
Raeann and Ily got aquainted for the first time! Ily was always very excited to see Raeann come into the room and Raeann was so busy she didn't notice alot of the time.
What a great time we had in Colorado. The top of the mountain was the place to be, all of us together!
