We went to church - had no heat so service was cancelled.
Daniel took me bowling and out for dessert - we both hurt our hand and now have a headache from the amount of sugar. But the time spent together was wonderful! I love spending time with him.
But I wanted more redemption somehow, so I came home and looked at pictures. I came across the Valentine portraits I took of the girls 5 years ago.

It's startling to see what impact 5 years has on someone, but more than how much these two have changed on the outside -- I'm blown away at the transformation on the inside. They have both become young women of God; loving Him in full-abandon. Giving of themselves in time, energy, and gifts. With all honesty -- something I had no idea of at either of their ages.
Ali is planning to go to Africa and is currently working toward that end.
Sydney desires to start and lead a youth choir -- in the future.
Ali is going through online bible college classes.
Sydney is finishing high school early.
Ali love to play the piano.
