More of our catching up on blog posting!
Friday, March 18 to Sunday, March 20, 2016 – If you’ve been reading our blog very long you know one of my favorite things is to hear our church choir sing and one or more of the choir members singing solos or duets. Today I got to hear both!!!!! Our adult choir sang three special songs for Palm Sunday, one of which included a solo by Ashley Traylor Louviere and a duet by Ashley and her mom Leanna Traylor. One of my favorite male singers is Teddy Forrest. His daddy, Mr. Ted, had the deepest most amazing bass voice I’ve ever heard. He’s living in Heaven now with God but God gave Teddy, the son, an amazing voice also and I am so thankful we got to hear him sing Praises to God today! Jamie Varnado sang a beautiful solo that just made my heart smile. The choir was lead by Nicholas Varnado who, as always, did a wonderful job leading them! This was our last Sunday at Trinity for a while so after we said our “See ya’ laters” we headed home to Amite for the Amite Oyster Festival. This may be one of the smallest festivals of all those in the area, but what we really went for was Funnel Cakes and Cotton Candy. We got both, listened to some live music and headed back to our car, stopping only to devour the Funnel Cake. Here is what one looks like before and almost after being devoured!

We picked up Madisyn when she got off of school on Friday and spent some time with her eating yogurt and running errands. She’s an amazingly well behaved, yet extremely restless, child!!! She loved having us check her out from school and run the streets with us.
One of our stops was at SonLife Christian Bookstore where we bought Madisyn and Kallie new Bibles. They are both Teen Life Application Bibles in the New Living Translation. It has paragraphs in bubbles, etc. on most pages applying what they are learning in the Bible to their young women lives. Madisyn and I had a good time doing that. We spent almost an hour sitting on the floor in the store talking about each one she picked up. At 7 years old, glittery and splashy caught her eye but this gave me an opportunity to tell her that a Bible is not like other books. It can be plain as can be and it still contains the same Word of God as the other that is splashy. What we agreed on isn’t splashy but the application part of the Bible is just what I believe a young girl needs to learn more about God’s Holy Word.
Here’s some photos of our time with Madisyn.
Saturday, our new granddaughter Kallie turned 15. We all met at Kirins Sushi Restaurant in Hammond on Friday night. Our first sushi house Hibachi experience, wow!!! There were 14 of us seated around the rectangular cooking surface. The food was great and I do believe the Happy Birthday girl, Kallie, had a great evening!
Well, that wraps up our last weekend at home! Good times!
Next I’ll share leaving Louisiana for a long, long (ha ha!!) trip to Pass Christian, MS where we are staying at TLC Wolf River Resort!
