Random photo


No -- I didn't take this one. [smile]

I have been sorting and organizing the last 25 years of Wissmann family snapshots the past few days, and couldn't resist sharing this one with you all and giving you a peek of what we looked like when there were only seven in our family. So many years ago -- but each and every year has been filled with the faithfulness of the Lord. What a mighty God we serve!

"...forget not the works of God,
keep His commandments..."
Psalms 78:7

So CUTE! I can't believe they let you drive Bethany. :) That picture reminded me of all the ones I saw yesterday. Old family pictures are so fun and your family's are especially so... your smiles only continued getting bigger... and more abundant. :)

I agree with Jacob... "little did they suspect!"

I love the family picture. Hope you put in more of your earlier pictures. (Your hair looks so light. When did it start turning darker?)

Sorry I missed your blog check-in earlier in the week. But to answer some of your questions, at 5:30 in the morning I don't even look at the color of my toothbrush. I just hope I can see it enough to get the toothpaste on.

And for some you didn't ask, I'm probably 30 lbs too short, and about 40 years to old to figure out how to set up my own site. As for music, most everything from country to classical with a wide variety of religious in there. And one of my favorites would have to be "Praise God". Go figure. (BTW, you haven't mentioned any Chopin lately. Tired of accidentals?) Always wishing you the best.

Bethany, I'm so glad you clarified that you didn't take this one, because that would have been pretty incrediable if you did! lol Really adorable picture. So priceless to capture such memories! As far as I'm concerned you can do randomness whenever it fits in! [grin]
