Happy Heavenly Birthday Pop!

A year ago today we traveled with the Harper Family to Cleveland Ohio to surprise Sid's dad for his birthday. It seems like it was just yesterday. We made some amazing memories on that trip and we are so thankful that we were all able to be together with Pop for his last earthly birthday & Thanksgiving. It was such a special time and we will all forever keep those memories in our hearts.

Today I am forever thankful for all the things I learned from this mighty man of God. Johnnie was such an inspiration to me. He showed me what it means to be intentional with every person you meet, to love every person unconditionally and to laugh, and laugh and laugh. As God continues to take our family on a new journey, I now sit back and watch my husband walking around meeting new people, making new friends and inspiring others to live life to the fullest. He is truly amazing with people and every day I learn more about what it really means to love people like Jesus loves them. I am beyond thankful for the incredible example that my Father-in-law was to my husband and to my children. Because of his great love and because he led his family by example his legacy will live on for generations. I miss you Johnnie more than words can express and can not wait to hug your neck again one day.

"Nothing great was every accomplished without enthusiasm." 
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson all things show yourself to be an example of good deeds, with purity in doctrine, dignified, sound in speech which is beyond reproach, so that the opponent will be put to shame, having nothing bad to say about us. ~Titus 2:7-8
