Thank you for responding to the prayer request I posted a couple of days ago. Pastor Charles Spencer is much improved, by God's grace, and we are very thankful for that. Please continue to pray for him and his family and his church.
I am sticking to the Christmas theme for this week's Vintage View. Today I found pictures from Christmas 2003. We were finishing our first year back on the road and it was our first Christmas at home since 1998. It was a special time for us, to say the least. We sure enjoyed being home with our families.
This first batch of pictures comes from the Morgan Christmas. They were taken on Christmas Eve at the old home place. We always have a blast in Hillsboro with Kelly Jo's family.
It is amazing to see how much these kids have grown and changed.
These final pictures were taken on Christmas day. We celebrated that year in my brother Tommy's basement. I think that is correct. That is what it looks like in the pictures.
There has been a lot of changing from these pictures too.
I do not know if this is the couch or not, but I remember a funny story from that day. My brother Steve and I had been sitting on a couch together for a few hours. We are both pretty "healthy" men and I am sure the couch was straining under the load. I am also sure that more than one joke had been made about the couch holding both of us.
After we both stood up, our skinny brother in law Jay, sat down on the couch by himself and it collapsed under him. I laughed until I cried and still do!
I hope you enjoy the Vintage View Vednesday. Thank you for dropping in.
