Smithy news of late!!

Wonderful and exciting times around here!! Our family is getting larger :) And more families are being added!

About 3 weeks ago Danny L. asked me to be his wife!

Awww, this just makes me smile everytime I see it!

Of course, first time I saw it this was about my reaction :)

Danny and I have known each other for a little over 3 years. The Lords hands have been in this from the beginning, it's just amazes me as I sit and think of our story!
I met his sisters at a local homeschool meeting. We had not even planned to go to the meeting, but the leaders called us up and asked us to, even offering us a free booth!There, I saw three sweet girls that I just had to go talk to! Turns out they lived right down the road from me, just 5 mins. How could we live that close to each other for 12 years and not have met before?! But the Lords timing is just perfect! They were currently looking for a family oriented church, and we had one!
I gave them one of our DVD's with information about us and our church, thinking this would be like any other family I met, and that I would probably never see them again. They went home and gave their father the DVD and I went home and forgot about them. Then, about a month later they showed up at our house for church!

We started spending a lot of time together as families! We helped each other out with parties and got together and ate or played games. Most Sundays they would stay all day! I really began to notice how similar our two families are.

About a year ago Danny talked with my father about getting to know me better with the intention of marriage. He came over a lot and spent a great deal of time with my father.
About a month ago my father asked me if I would be interested in getting to know Danny. I was very interested :)
After a couple of weeks of getting to each others beliefs and thoughts on different subjects Danny called me up and asked me if I wanted to go flying. I thought it was pretty cool that he had friends who would randomly take him flying and I rode over to the little airport just as unsuspecting as could be, little knowing that it would change my life forever!

I feel so blessed to have such an amazing, Godly young man for my future husband!!

Rejoicing and Praising the Lord,

Alabama Conference

Part of our family went to Alabama, shortly after the tornado, to a conference to vidoe tape!

Kevin Swanson, deffinatly our new favorite speaker!

Our dear Hostess!

Katie and Amy-J, sweet friends :) Turns out I had met Katie (on the right) a couple of years ago at the Father/Daughter Retreat! Small world! It was such a joy to see her again and meet her friends!

These shoes kinda creep me out. I can't figure out what to think of them!

Mr. Joel McDurmon, a very interesting speaker!

This gentleman was from Bulgaria, and he had some very inspiring things to say about taking care of your elderly, instead of having the government do it for you!

Mrs. Maddox and her precious little girl

Miss Scarlette and my self!
