This last week has been busy busy...We prepared for Mr. Darling's graduation day and party....which I will share in the next post. It was a lot of work. Our family, friends and church family came down to celebrate the big day. It was wonderful. I am so proud of him, his accomplishment and ready to move on with whatever God grants. Sunday we celebrated Pentecost which Among Christians, Pentecost commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Twelve apostles and other followers of Jesus as described in the Acts of the Apostles 2:1–31. For this reason, Pentecost is sometimes described as the
"Birthday of the Church."
The Pentecostal movement of Christianity derives its name from the New Testament event. To celebrate this occasion our church held a Pentecost Ball. It has been something we have been looking forward to for some time. The day finally came. The girls were busy getting ready two hours before the ball while the guy's were still messing around with music.
The girls looked absolutely beautiful.
Thank you to Marilee for braiding all the sweet maidens hair.
The gentlemen looked dashing as ever. And of course this proud Mama had to take a bunch of pictures. I just love all these kids. They are each a very special piece to our lives and hearts. And this may just mark one of the last shindigs we get to share with them before our move. ;(
We arrived to the ball. It was a lovely setting to have this event. The pom poms and lights the ambiance of the candles and food, friends and fellowship were breathtaking. We enjoyed dancing with our friends into the late evening..We laughed and learned some new moves. It was so enjoyable.
I wish you all were there.
These memories made over the past several weeks will forever be imprinted into our minds and hearts. It was a perfect setting filled with so much love and laughter,
I cannot express how very blessed we have been while here.
Despite the fall down a flight of stairs last week, stubbing my pinkie toe into a cart, which broke my nail half off and breaking my toe while dancing. I will cherish the time we had celebrating with our family and friends as we move into a new chapter of our lives.
Hope you had a memorable time this last weekend as we also celebrate Memorial Day.
Blessings to you all,
