In addition to helping here at home, taking care of the boys and teaching he has taken some time to celebrate. On the 12th was his 37th birthday so we celebrated the Sunday before at his mom and dad's with strawberry shortcake.
Yesterday we had the official celebration of the release of the Reader's Hebrew Bible. It started shipping earlier this month and so far there are a lot of good reviews and comments about it. I'm so proud of a husband who "finished the job." This will be such a blessing to those who are serious about reading Scripture in the original language. His mom and dad hosted a party fit for a king. They fixed steak and shrimp (with marinated, pan fried mushrooms to top it), salad (with homemade crutons), corn on the cob (or corn on the combine as Allan called it), baked potatoes with all the fixings and pecan pie for dessert. What a celebration! Afterwards we read the sayings of Jesus on the cross to commemorate Good Friday and then fixed a fire in the fireplace. Lovely evening, good food, great company...we're blessed.
