Going to the Sahlstroms!

A few weekends ago, Ben and I drove down to my oldest sister's house for a visit. It was SO fun to have my parents ride with us! As you can see, at the start of our travels the men were a little preoccupied with business calls.

On our way down, my Mom and I sang a GAZILLION songs - just to keep Elijah & Elianna entertained....ok, so we had fun too. :) It made me really miss singing with my family.

My sister Melissa, her daughter Annika & son Ben, and their two foreign exchange students sang in a special Valentines Day choir - it was excellent, they did a great job!

On Sunday morning, we were blessed to witness the baptism of my niece Charisma. What a powerful testimony she gave to the church....there was not a dry eye after she was done. God has done an amazing work in Charisma's life.

Charisma Faith - a true believer - sanctified by the blood of Jesus Christ!
"I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back, no turning back!"

I am grateful for the influences and friendships my daughter Elianna experiences each time we are with her cousins - what a blessing!

I agree Karen! And the pictures of Charisma's baptism almost made me cry! She is such a beautiful young lady! What a fun weekend that was! (I felt like I got in on it too a wee bit with a Skype call or two!)
