Shine Like Stars

Shine like stars in the universe as we hold out the Word of life (Phil. 2:15)
We're not trying to be rock stars but just shed some light on a sad and lonely world. Stay tuned for how God works through weak and tired, sometimes really cranky vessels.

Day 2

Awesome day in St. Augustine. The kids are loving it here. Lots of swimming and playing and sun. It's great!

I took this picture from our balcony. Melia was sleeping
and Michael took the older kids to the beach.

I love these boys!

Pretty, cute and Ethiopian!
Melia charmed a deck full of ladies this morning at the pool.
Seriously, 10 women were enamored with this baby!

Cute boy.
Don't worry his leg's not broken.
A little family tennis. (not the whole family, seeing
i was laying on the ground.)
Tennis Melia style.

Michael loves throwing her up in the air.
She's beginning to enjoy it too.

Too bad the photo's fuzzy.
She accessorized herself with a swim diaper hat,
goggle necklace and mesh floatie bag purse.
The boys are making books about our trip.
Nathan's entry today says: I went to the beach
and I had fun.
Both the boys got a little too much sun today. We'll be more careful with the sunblock tomorrow.

My favorite part of the day was my evening walk on the beach with Caleb and Nathan. They each held my hands and we walked along the shore. It was so sweet!


  1. So glad you are getting recharged and refreshed! Enjoy yourself!!

  2. So glad you are keeping us updated! What precious family memories! Enjoy...we love you!

  3. The sisterly bond is so strong & apparent between Addie & Melia -- obviously Melia has been greatly influenced in her fashion style by her big sistah!! ;-)
