Taking the Plunge

Adam, Brady, Katie, & Texas Cake!

Dad - proud We're raising him right! Go Horn's!

Sarra & Katie helping Brady out!

So here are pics of Brady's B-day last weekend. Since then, we've had no new pics taken. Camera dead and can't find the battery charger thing. Oh well.

On a different note - I was thinking tonight about how Moses' Mother had so much trust and confidence in God and in herself. She made a basket for her child, knowing that God would keep her child safe from harm if she put him in it. It made me think of us as parents. Us Mom's are weaving our baskets for our children. Preparing them to be taken away from us and protected by God. They may come back to us or they may not. But having Confidence in God is not doing nothing, it's doing our part and then trusting in him to take care of the rest. I get tired and run down when I am "weaving my basket's", but I will say that I am praying that I am using the right material for my kids. If I do one thing right as a parent, I want it to be that I influenced my kids in a positive way to be a servant of the Lord.

Thanks for the story of Moses, I have dreaded the day the kids leave since they were born. Sure helps to know others have been through it, even as far back as Moses. Love you girlfriend!!

Precious pictures, precious children and a very precious mom who has been trusted to raise 3 of my amazing grandchildren. One I would have picked, had God given me the choice, He however, as usual has given me 'excedingly more than I could have ever ask or imagined'. by the way, thanks for supper tonight! See - more than I ask or imagined!!! Love you

Cute pics!!! When I saw the pic of Brady in his Texas stuff , I was reminded of a football game I halfway listened to the other day.There was a
Brady ? (Thomas) I think, playing, and every time I heard his name I thought, one of these days we will hear "and that was Brady Bramlett
on the interception". Adam you can't read this cause I don't want you to know how ignorant of football I am.
Hope to see you this weekend at Mothers, Love ya
