Today….

18 Jan

It’s ironic how we mourn the loss of one, and celebrate the arrival of another all in the same day. Today was Mark Lamberth’s memorial service. It was beautiful and Angie did a wonderful job in reflecting what a man of God her husband was. He will truly be missed, and so many people have grown closer to the Lord because of him.

Straight from the service my mom and I drove out to Rachel’s baby shower for Raelynne, who will be joining us in February! They just moved into their new house and we took advantage of breaking it in for them….

    Awesome pics Noelle! Looks like you guys had a great time at the shower. Poor Rachel, I know you don’t want to hear it, but you look huge, so close though, getting there. Can’t wait to meet the new baby.

    Been following the blog about Mark, seems like a very much loved and inspiring person, he left his mark on this world. I can’t believe how far the prays spread around the world, truly amazing.
