Visiting Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas!

It was a joy to visit with children Pete and Renee and their families!  The grandchildren have grown so tall while we were overseas.  We were sorry that we could not see Renee’s husband Michael who was unable to attend due to a death in his family.  Pete, Renee and their families met us at the Janet Huckabee Nature Center in Ft Smith AR for a picnic and family reunion.

And He shall direct your paths.
