2 Samuel 6:22 “And I will yet be more vile than thus.” Do you get offended when someone steps on your toes with what seems to be a harsh criticism? Today in Rob’s bible I found this little gem in 2Samuel: “David would more and more abase himself before the Lord. He felt that whatever his wife Mishal’s opinion of him might be, it could not be more humbling then his own view of himself. I tell myself, ‘If any man thinks ill of you, do not be angry with him, for you are far worse than he thinks you to be. If he falsely accuses you on some point, be satisfied. For if he truly knew you better, he might justly increase the accusation. If you have your moral portrait painted and it is ugly, be satisfied, for it only needs a few more black touches, and it would be nearer to the truth.'” WOW. 😳 Thank you. When I find myself getting indignant over what someone thinks of me and how they are treating me, I will remember this: If they knew the whole truth of me, it could be so much worse. Yet God DOES know the whole truth and gives me mercy for it. What a wonderful Savior!
See his progressive happiness? LOL #buildyourhubby #heisyourhouse

Rob’s birthday week was always spent celebrating his mother. Her birthday was a few
days before his and he was always available to share the time to honor her. She was his absolute favorite person to call talk to every week of his life. She has been the most fabulous, supportive, loving mother-in-love that a girl could ask for and an amazing faith-filled grandmother (Mimi) to our children. This week I celebrate you, Katy!!! 😙😇 Happy Birthday!
Happy Birthday to Rob’s mom who shares his birthday week! How wonderful to have a loving mother for every year of your entire life. Thank you for raising a respectful and honorable man who loved me so well.
Thank you for encouraging his leadership in the faith that was so central to the hope he had. Thank you for gracefully allowing him to join his earthly father, Stan, a little earlier than we were all ready to let him go. You shared more than a birthday week, you shared a mother/son bond that was and is truly inspiring. Thank you for EVERYTHING. I love you to pieces!!!
Happy Birthday week continues! This is Greg Knight. He and Rob shared birthday week with a camping party they called their “April Bash”.
Horseshoes, ATV riding, jet boat skiing and shenanigans were all part of the weekend. Greg’s wife Tami and I went along to keep things at a dull roar 🍻 If you know the story, Greg and Tami went on to have set of twins and then triplets (all in one year) to add to their son Preston John. Six kids under the age of three! The five multiples had red curly hair just like Greg’s. What a trip! #robjustsawthemlastyear #35yearfriendship

90 days ago one of the strongest pillars in my life was knocked out from underneath me. This “earthquake” shook my spiritual house just like the Hawaiian earthquake shook our house in this photo.
The last ninety days has taught me some things. I have learned that I can be shaken and not fall apart. I have learned that much like this lanai, I have many pillars holding me up –they are called my family of choice. And I have learned that the only unshakable thing is God himself. He is my “Always & Forever”.
He has taught me that during the earthquake is the best time to learn to hula.
