31 Days: Day 21 - Happy Birthday Rick!

If you haven't figured it out yet, May is birthday month in our family - both my brothers and my Mom! Two weeks ago we celebrated my younger brother's 40th birthday, five days ago it was my Mom's, 71st and today it's my older brother Rick's 50th birthday! In honor of Rick's big 5-0 milestone I wanted to do a little tribute to him too...


Half a century ago.....

Cute, cute cowboy!
An all too familiar scene...Rick pestering me...but hey, what are big brothers for...?
Easter 1969

His senior year - 1977

Rick and his beloved wife of 29 years, Sharon...

He is a very devoted husband and father of two...

A very familiar scene - Rick at a BBQ grill - he is truly a fabulous chef. Although he is a chemist by trade, his true passion is cooking...whether it's for 600 people at his church or 6 people at his home, he always cooks with love, and you can taste it in every bite!

I love you Big Brother!! Happy, happy 50th Birthday!!!


This is also the 21st day of my 31 Day Challenge - wow - only 10 days left! I can't believe I've posted for 21 days straight - I don't know how you guys that post every day, all the time, do it...?? But I have really had a lot of fun and I am enjoying the discipline of reading through all 31 chapters of Proverbs and
posting my favorite verse(s) each day.

So, for Proverbs 21, and in honor of my big brother, here is my Proverb of the day:

"He who pursues righteousness and love, finds life, prosperity, and honor."
Proverbs 21:21
