I realize you guys that these three pictures may very well be my worst as far a clarity, but they are by far some of my most prized !(I took pictures of my pictures) Anyway. The very last picture is on of my husband's father, he was born on August 24, 1923. The next picture is of my mother and father...they were married on August 24 1943. And the first picture is of my son and his wife. Dave was born on August 24, 1976 (Happy birthday, son)... Wait...there's more...on October 15, 1966 my husband's father passed away, on October 15, 1996, my father passed away. And on October 15 2009 Dave and Linda's new baby is due. Today is an amazingly wonderful, yet emotional day! God's plan is in motion every signal day of our lives!
Sorry for the decorating break as I know that's what you all enjoy, but for myself I wanted this day journal ed...thanks for listening.

Gale, I do beleive God uses numbers to signify unique and mysterious moments in our lives.
I love hearing about family things and connects us all. I have a funny one...I was born 3rd month,(March) 3rd day, 1953, at 3:00 in the afternoon, on the 3rd day of the week. Guess what my favorite number is? And as for following me, hey come on up and have a visit. I'd love a good party!

Numbers are significant. I almost believe they are a hidden message from God. My daughter was born on C.D.'s brother's birthday and my son was born on my sister's. How odd is that?
Great and meaningful post!
