July is always a time of celebration around here.
Within 30 days we celebrate FIVE birthdays and a wedding anniversary. Abby Schreck (June 30), John Schreck, Zachariah Schreck, Noni and finally Grayson Smith. The anniversary celebration is for Meagan and Nathan. (Three of the five birthday people are in this picture.)
If you look to our extended family, you find two more birthdays and three more anniversaries. Now you know the real reason behind all those fireworks at the beginning of the month.
By the time we throw in a couple of camps, conferences and maybe even a few vacation days in July we have a full schedule.
The biggest celebration this year is the 10th Wedding Anniversary of our very own Meagan and Nathan Smith! Here they are ten years ago on the day of their wedding. So much joy, victory and anticipation for their future . . .
Here we find the happy couple 10 years later. Who could ever have predicted such abundance would be entrusted to those two young kids? Looking at the second picture, I know the words: Joy, Victory and Anticipation are richer in their story but still just as applicable for Meagan and Nathan.
