You Add to My Life, Valentine!

One this fourth day of 14 Days of Valentines, I want to share with you how much has been added to my life because of my Valentine.  It's like this:

First there was just the two of us:
We lived here:

Well, not in this exact mobile home, but in a
mobile home in this exact same spot.  We re-
visited it a few years back.

Then, it wasn't long until there was three of us.  This little "brown-eyed" darling  girl was given to us:

Rebecca Lynn

Then we moved to a place not too far from there and we were blessed with this little bundle of "joy":

Leah Joy

Then a few months later, we were given this little princess:

Sarah Beth

Then we moved to a different state, KY, and the Lord graced us with this baby girl:

Hannah Lonee' (yes, that's as close as Lonnie
got to his name with his children.....but wait
there's more!

Fast forward 20 plus years.....we move Nicholasville, KY, the girls grow up here as their dad pastors Tabernacle Baptist Church.  They go go college one by one, and one by one, they meet a fellow and fall in love and now, add 4 + 4, and what do you have?  Right 8!

Now we have four boys! Kevin Hearn, Dan Black, Tim Morrison, Jason Wheeler.
 Wow!  How things can multiply...
and so quickly!  But wait we're not finished.

First there was 2, then and 4, that equals 6. Then add four more and you have 10!  Then you add 8 more and what does that make?  WOW!  Eighteen people!  When I first started blogging, I actually had a blog called, "Moore and More"!  It was a pretty appropriate name for it considering how our family increased more and more very quickly; and we may not be finished yet! 

  Psalm 115:14 says,  "The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children."  We have
truly seen this happen in our family.  We have increased and we are so thankful and happy for each one.

2 + 4 = 6;  6 + 4 = 10;  10 + 8 =  ........... please read on.....
Jackob Black, Anna Grace, Olivia, Caswell and Lonnie Ray
(Lonnie finally got is namesake) Hearn, Abygail, Eli, and Eden Morrison.

 Yes, I think that's a good verse for us; we have increase more and more and not only in number but in love and blessings and good times and joy and happiness.  Lonnie and I have been blessed in numerous ways!  We praise the Lord for it!  (In case you're counting, there is actually 21 people in this picture.  Lonnie's dad is also in this picture.)

So, until I have something to add, I think I'm finished with this post.


Fwd: My Husband Wears a Crown! You must read all the way to the end of the post to find out why!

Day Two of 14 Days of Valentines

My husband is not only a wonderful husband and dad, but also a wonderful grandfather.
I love that about him!
You will see the "real" Lonnie Moore if you see him with his grandkids!  He turns into a kid himself!  The grandkids seem to think that the only reason for his existence is to play, play, play!
You can only imagine how that makes them feel about him.  They are CRAZY about him!
You can see just a little bit of the good time the grand kids have with Pappaw from the above video.  Trust me, this is only an example of what it's really like!  When they're inside it's running and romping so that you need to button down the hatches so nothing falls off the walls!

Proverbs 17:6
 Children's children are the crown of old men;and the glory of children are their fathers.
