We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature--trees, flowers, grass--grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...We need silence to be able to touch souls. --Mother Teresa

Getting Closer

Just like I promised a few weeks ago, I am starting to post pics of us through the years. I am pretty sure this was the mid 90's. Maybe. Maybe not. Oh it is. Look at my hair. Duh. Although...I have to admit it looks pretty darn good.

And don't our clothes match nicely? Geez....that was my favorite outfit. It had these really awesome shorts and everything was all matchymatchy. It was the 90's after all. And I am pretty sure that Mr. Wonderful just put on a shirt and got into the car.

Having some discussion during my attempt to post.....Mr. Wonderful seems to think this pic was snapped in 1996. Because there is a family picture that cannot be located somewhere in my house. It is missing. All the other family pics are displayed nicely on my buffet in my dining room. But not this one. Lost. Probably stored in a rubbermaid tub tucked away in some secret place.

Anyway, the reason he just put on a shirt and got into the car is that at this point in our lives we lived 15 miles from town, had a 7 year old and 3 year old twins. This pic was taken for our church directory---and as I am posting I am remembering....a lot of details. Like it was pouring rain and my hair was at risk of being ruined. Never a good a thing. And in the family picture....we are NOT even close to color coordinated.

I am going to find that picture. NOW.

Coach makes this picture look good.
