T is for Tie....
The Sunday before Mother's Day T decided that he needed to wear a tie to church like daddy. He insisted on it! In the past he has worn ties, suits mainly in Fall/Winter when it is cooler out. Then I have opted for Polos/dress shorts for the warmer months. But he was set on wearing a tie. When we found a white dress shirt & tie tucked away in the back of his closet--he was giddy! Once dressed he said, "Mommy, since I have a tie on like daddy can I talk on the microphone on the stage today like daddy?" Hmmmm. lol. Anyway, he has insisted on wearing a tie every Sunday since and we have come up with some pretty creative ensembles. On Mother's Day he did get to go on the stage and say Happy Mother's Day in the microphone. He was thrilled!
Brandon is the most wonderful husband & daddy anyone could ask for! I am so thankful that in God's sovereign plan he brought the two of us together. I am so thankful for every day with him and we joke all the time about how we can't wait to grow old together! He is my Best Friend!
My husband Brandon & I live in Protection, Kansas where he was called by God to pastor a church in July 2008. We have a wonderful family including Samantha 13 years old & loves sports, Kailey who is 7 years old & loves to cheer & dance ALL THE TIME, Trenton who is 5 years old & loves John Deere Tractors & Trevor who went to Heaven on January 4, 2010 when I was 17 weeks & 2 days pregnant. I love my family & I love my life in Kansas.
The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I am a Christian makes me a different kind of woman. For I have accepted God's idea of me, and my whole life is an offering back to Him of all that I am, and all that He wants me to be.-Elisabeth Elliot
