2020-02-13 Pictures: Lyndsey’s 18th Birthday

I am little behind on posting photos. These are some of my favorites from a couple of weekends ago when we got a chance to celebrate Lyndsey's 18th birthday. It's hard to believe that my little girl is officially an adult. It was nice to have the family all back...

Unlike many so called gods of other religions, the Old Testament prophesied that the Messiah would come to earth and dwell among God’s people.

New Testament Fulfillment
