Our Sunday School class went to see our friend, Michele, at Emory on Tues July 14th. She is 19 and was diagnosed with Leukmia (AML) on Wed July 8th, taken to Emory on the 9th and started chemo on the 10th. She has the best spirit about the whole thing. We know that God is working and He is the great Physician. Please pray for her when you get a chance.


Hey everyone! Sorry I havent posted in a while. My internet has been down for 10 days at work. I can check email and stuff on my phone, but couldn't blog.

The Reception...
I only took a couple of photographs during the wedding. They were so happy!

The ceremony
She looked so pretty, we were afraid to touch her.
Isn't she lovely...

Right before the wedding...
Amanda and the girls are back with their faces and hair all done up right!

The place had a belly flop contest for kids and Jeff and Missy were judges...too funny.
me and the boys hung out while the bride and bridesmaids were doing there thing. I was just happy to be away from the "real world".
The funny thing was Jim, Amanda's dad, and I had to drive the golf cart up to the inn and trade it for Amanda's car. We got some honks on the way!

Isn't it cute!
We were were enjoying ourselves.
We decorated the golf cart with puff balls and pink and black ribbon and a sign that Dan painted. Yes it was early in the am and dont really know what is posessing me to put this awful pic of myself out on the web except maybe the fact that it is already all over facebook.
Amanda, Cara, Roxanne, Ashley, and Melanie ready to practice
Amanda's mom and brother. Love them both!
Madison and Me before the Rehearsal. We bonded since we were always around and not doing the main wedding stuff.

I love my Mel!

Melanie, Amanda, Cara, and Ashley

The start of our pool/beach time...Thursday until the rehearsal and all morning Friday until the wedding! Woohoo! Madison and Roxanne

This is the view outside our condo.

I had a pic of all the girls outside the restaurant on here, but accidentally deleted it and it's too difficult to upload and get back in the same spot.

The Bridesmaid's Luncheon on Thursday morning.

We have so much fun together!

Ashley and Melanie were the last to arrive and ofcourse that's when the fun really began!

Madison and Matt, Amanda's brother

We started out on Wed with everyone arriving to celebrate Amanda's birthday!

Awww I forgot how great an actual vacation could be. I mean 5 solid days away from work and everyday Valdosta Georgia living! It was so refreshing. I was so thankful to be apart of Dan and Amanda's wedding extravaganza!


People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.. When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.
Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.
