"KNOWLEDGE" IS A GOOD THING

XOXO...AMY...XOXO
ALWAYS  IN  OUR  HEARTS


CONGRATULATIONS...

TO  THE  ORTON'S

THIS  IS  A  PICTURE  OF  MY  BEAUTIFUL

COUSIN  SUZIE  AND  HER  HUSBAND  IRVIE

WITH  THEIR  FAVORITE  TEACHER.

SUZIE  AND  IRVIE  GRADUATED  ON  5-08-10

WITH  THEIR  MASTERS  DEGREE.


THEY  HAVE  BEEN  TEACHERS  FOR  YEARS

BUT  DECIDED  TO  GO  BACK,  TOGETHER,

AND  OBTAIN  THEIR  MASTER'S  DEGREE.


I  AM  SO  VERY  PROUD  OF  THEM.

I  THINK  SUZIE  JUST  LOOKS  BEAUTIFUL

AND  YOU  CAN  JUST  SEE  THE  GLORY  OF

THE  LORD  ON  THEM.


THEY  ARE  A  BEAUTIFUL  CHRISTIAN  COUPLE.

THEY,  LIKE  RICHARD  AND  ME,  HAD  A  BOY  AND

A  GIRL.  THEIR  DAUGHTER  JENNIFER  IS

A  BEAUTIFUL  GIRL.  SHE  IS  MARRIED  TO  A

AIR  FORCE  FLY  BOY  AND  JENNIFER  IS  A

TEACHER.  THEY  HAVE  ONE  FUR  BABY  THAT

LOVES  TO  SWIM.  HE  IS  A  JACK  RUSSEL  TERRIER.

THEIR  SON,  TYSON  IS  A  HANDSOME  YOUNG

MAN  AND  ONE  OF  THOSE  TECHNICAL  COMPUTER,

SECURITY  INSTALLERS....OTHER  WORDS,  HE  NOT

ONLY  IS  HANDSOME  BUT  HE  IS  SMART.....

JUST  LIKE  MY  HANDSOME  SON,  RICHIE.



THAT  CHRIST  MAY  DWELL  IN  YOUR

HEARTS  THROUGH  FAITH;  THAT  YOU,  BEING 

ROOTED  AND  GROUNDED  IN  LOVE,

MAY  BE  ABLE  TO  COMPREHEND  WITH  ALL

SAINTS  WHAT  IS  THE  WIDTH  AND  LENGTH

AND  DEPTH  AND  HEIGHT-

TO  KNOW  THE  LOVE  OF  CHRIST  WHICH

PASSES  KNOWLEDGE;  THAT  YOU  MAY  BE

FILLED  WITH  ALL  THE  FULLNESS  OF  GOD.

NOW  TO  HIM  WHO  IS  ABLE  TO  DO  EXCEED-

INGLY  ABUNDANTLY  ABOVE  ALL  THAT  WE

ASK  OR  THINK,  ACCORDING  TO  THE  POWER

THAT  WORKS  IN  US

~EPHESIANS  3: 17-20





THANK  YOU  FOR  JOINING  ME  TODAY

AND  SHARING  IN  THE  JOY  OF  SUZIE  AND

IRVIE'S  GRADUATION.

THERE  ARE  SO  MANY  SUFFERING  WITH  CANCER,

GRIEVING  OVER  LOVED  ONES,  LOST  EVERYTHING

IN  THE  FLOODS,  TORNADOES,  OR  FORECLOSURE...

IT  IS  NICE  TO  SEE  "HOPE  IN  ACTION."

PRAYERS  CONTINUE  TO  GO  UP  TO  THE  THRONE

ROOM  OF  MERCY  AND  GRACE.


HUGS  AND  BLESSINGS

SIMPLY  DEBBIE

Debbie, that is so neat about your cousin and his wife. Congrats to them!

I'm also glad to see you're okay. I had been very concerned about you with the tornadoes. Glad you see you made it through that scare in Oklahoma.

XO,

Sheila :-)

Well, I think it so awesome - no matter what age - to take the challenge and go back to school - and together - quite a little love story.

Congrats to the graduates.

Love, you,
Sandie

Debbie, I hope YOU are okay up there -- we are keeping an eye on your area, you are catching a lot of bad and turbulent weather there -- we have some here too, it's all part of the same system, very large...

A Master's degree is quite an accomplishment! Congrats to your cousin and cousin-in-law!!!

Thanks Debbie for your lovely note. I will go by Marydons blog to get an update on Sherry. My son Joshua, who lives in Phoenix gets his Masters this month. I am a proud Mommy!

Good for them! I think it's wonderful they went back to school. Such an amazing accomplishment. I am sure they appreciate it much more than most young kids receiving their Masters as well.
Thank you for sharing such a story of inspiration!
