Happy Birthday Love!!!

Thanks for sharing your life with me! I can't take you to Hawaii for your birthday this year or even to Charleston, SC, but I can take you into my arms once again.
We won't see the ocean today or a Humuhumu-nukunuku-pua'a, but at least we can look into each other's eyes and wonder about those things that really matter....
We have each other and so much more.... Thank you for all you that do for me and for helping me to see our world in color!
LIFE is incredible, but true LOVE is ENCHANTING!!!

~ your hubby ~

happy birthday, and did you know...?

GREENVILLE, S.C. - Chris Sligh, the "American Idol" contestant who has won fans thanks to his curly mop of hair and soulful voice, has a few people concerned with his departure from strictly Christian music. But for most others in this city of 56,000 about 100 miles southwest of Charlotte, N.C., Sligh has become a hometown hero.

Jonathan Pait, a spokesman for fundamentalist Bob Jones University where Sligh attended for several years, said: "We really are somewhat disappointed with the direction he has gone musically."

He nonetheless tunes in each week to monitor Sligh's progress.

Local fans — some wearing fake glasses and curly wigs and calling themselves the "Fro Patro" — gather each week at restaurants and bars to cheer Sligh on. The local newspaper has been tracking his progress on its Web site.

Sligh, a 28-year-old son of missionaries who spent much of his childhood overseas, kept his spot among the 11 remaining finalists last week with a rendition of "Endless Love." He'll try to improve on that performance, deemed "unemotional" and "uninspiring" by judge Simon Cowell, this week. The show will announce results Wednesday evening.

People who know Sligh well say that he may be singing rock 'n' roll on television, but he's always clear about the faith that motivates his music.

"He's not going to back away from the fact that he's a Christian," said Chris Surratt, pastor of Seacoast Church, where Sligh has been music leader for more than two years. "He's going to let that shine through in what he does."

How sweet! Happy Birthday to both of you! I think it's interesting that you both have the same birthday, too. A good friend of mine and her husband also share this birthday. Have a great day!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! How VERY sweet and endearing! -Know you'll have a special birthday, no matter what the setting! ;)

You are both very lucky to have each other. Marriages seem to be falling apart around us; how wonderful to hear and see the evidence of a good one!

God bless!!

Oh my. I knew he was trouble the day I laid eyes on him. Smooth talking northerners are danger!! They steal your daughter's heart right from under you!!!!! Take those rose colored glasses off Rachel :) But alas its too late. She took the bait and now she's hooked. Oh well. I have two beautiful grandchildren so who am I to complain? Not me. Life is good and Andy is wonderful!!! Just keep giving me more grandbabies...
Love you BOTH,
