Journey Church Weekend Coming Up.

Brenda and i are really looking forward to a weekend with our friends Jesse and Missy Quiroz.

The first Sunday in June is Journey Church’s anniversary and we go back each year to celebrate with this amazing family of faith.

This year to church celebrates their third year and is growing like crazy.

The St. Louis area was our home for 13 years and we love to get back to see friends each year.

If you are in the St. Louis/ St. Charles area come out to Journey and see us.

Maybe see ya this weekend.

What a great 53rd birthday….Yes, Brenda did make me red velvet cake (one of my favorites).

My son called from Flagstaff to wish me a happy birthday. – I love his sense of humor.

My daughter called me as well to wish me a happy birthday and to let me in on the news that she is going to Africa this fall. 🙂

My brother Gary called me and teased me about being old and to sing happy birthday.

My parents called to say happy birthday. They have wished me 53 happy birthdays and have been the most consistent supporters of my life.

It is such an amazing gift to hear from my family.

I heard from so many friends on twitter, face book, text messages, phone calls and cards. The birthday messages  where just overwhelming and appreciated.

I also walked all three Golden’s in the forest after Brenda and I arrived home from work and you know I did do a birthday bike ride and arrived home just before sunset.

Thank you all for the birthday greetings and  for the gift of friendship you bring to Brenda and I.

You are loved.

53 is the new 33.
