1. Christine and Amanda make videos with me and Christine is fantastic about editing and uploading them to dropbox for me/us.

And I got this email from John Gancarz:
Hey Ashlie,How are you doing? How was your trip to Florida?!I bought a card for Josh in the seminary bookstore for his birthday. The card had on the front of it a picture of an icon of St. George slaying a dragon (the border is gold, which I made sure to point out to Josh, of course). While I was writing the card though, I found out, to my pleasant surprise, that St. George is the patron saint of [something to do with Josh’s deployment that is wonderfully fitting]. Also, I learned, much of what we know of the legend of Saint George comes from a 13th century book called The “Golden”Legend. Perfect. God is great.
I got to spend josh’s birthday hanging out with my friend Kristen and her sweet baby girl, Elianna (Miles, her husband, was flying back from CO so I didn’t get to see him!). I got numerous calls, texts and emails wishing Josh a happy birthday. It totally made my day.
Also, josh realized that only 1 golden item that was sent to him was a repeat item. The rest were never doubled up. Long story short, God is good, our family rocks and our friends are amazing.
One thought on “Wow!”
Woohoo! Happy birthday Joshua Dill! 🙂
