The two cousins! (Josh Vernoy & Josh Rios) This was a big night! The boys had just spent all afternoon moving into their dorm for their first year of Bible college at Florida Baptist College. This was the inaugural year for the school. It was an emotional evening as we realized our boys were an important part of history. The evening culminated with a beautiful buffet dinner cooked and presented by the resident chef. Dessert was a huge cake! The frosting on the celebratory cake had lots of green food coloring in it! Later, everyone laughed so hard when Dr. Turner, President of the college, got up to speak and he too had this same look, which he had just laughed at a few minutes prior when he saw the two boys at the beverage station!
Hubby just called and said he is just now leaving work. It is 11:44 p.m. He is bringing home a pizza! Oh my! I haven't eaten since lunch, which was a healthy salad! Maybe one piece? I promise I will walk an extra block or two tomorrow! LOL
My son, Josh, is making me so proud these days! He has become such a responsible young man and I couldn't be prouder! I've seen him do some amazing things for people lately. It's very touching! He recently received a raise at work! That was very encouraging to him. He is becoming more proficient with his job and now has reached the point where he can be sent to one job site, while my brother goes off to meetings or another job site.
His 20th birthday is coming up April 6th, so we are planning a family day out at Busch Gardens. We get the Fun Card which is a great bargain. We pay for one day's admission, then with proof of Florida residency, we get the Fun Card which allows us admission throughout the rest of the year, FREE!!! Let me tell you, with all of our out of state friends and relatives that come down to sunny Florida to visit *us* (yeah right!), we make many trips a year to Busch Gardens!
Uh, yep, that's me waving from the top of the Cheetah Chase, Busch Gardens!

One more prayer request. My friend Grace, who is a Junior in Crown College of the Bible, is leaving Monday morning for England! This is a mission's trip that she has been so excited about for the past few months! She has asked us to pray that the people of England will be tender to the message of Christ's love that she and the other college kids will be presenting. Pray that the group will all maintain Christian testimonies as well. Then of course, this should go without saying, safety. Another young lady from our church went to England with Crown College the year of the subway bombings! Yes, she was there about an hour away from London. Thankfully, the entire group was sheltered in the arms of God.
