This past weekend Lara and I took a couple days off work in order to drive down to Tennessee. Before I met Lara, I didn’t even know where Tennessee was, but it has since become one of my favorite places in the world. Although I still experience culture shock (the South is very culturally unique!), there are few things as comforting as driving across rolling hills and into the valley where Chattanooga lies. After a good 14 hour drive, Lara and I found ourselves at the doorstep of her parents’ beautiful home.
We were visiting to celebrate a very exciting occasion — Lara’s dad’s 50th birthday party! Despite all the old man jokes (and tombstone birthday cake!) he is full of youth and vigor!
It was such a fun time with the whole family, and we were so happy to celebrate him. He is an amazing husband, father, and father in-law, and I continue to learn so much from watching how he loves his family, his ministry at AMG, and the Lord. We love you! Happy 50th!!
