emma lael's birthday party

today was a very special day in the sisler household...we were surrounded by friends and families who came to celebrate emma lael's 4th birthday (her birthday is july 5)...this was the first time my dad had ever meet emma lael....the kids swam and ate yummy cupcakes & cookies.... i looked around at the kids at the party 6 of the children were adopted...5 from china.... to see God bring all these children to the same area of the u.s.a is something only God could plan....emma lael is very fortunate to have these other girls to share her life with...thank you to everyone who attended her birthday and celebrated this special day for emma lael....3 hours of swimming will make for a sound sleeping toddler ;0)

serving others

Matthew 5:16
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

today we had the pleasure of serving lunch to over 300 men and women in downtown atlanta, was 98 degrees today very HOT for the guest we served...kent headed the serving today he did a GREAT job!
kudos... to my kids (and lynz my red headed daughter) for serving others and being the hands and feet of Jesus today...always a pleasure to spend time serving others....after all, isn't that what Jesus taught us to do?
