Cousin in FL and Youth Pastor in MS

Today I am linking up with Kelly's Korner for Singles day. I feel like I have gotten so old I don't have that many single friends anymore but I do have two very special people to share with you. The first one is my precious 29 year old cousin in Florida named Alecia. My second single is Ryan, who is 24 and our awesome youth pastor at our church.

So, Alecia is my cousin who lives in St. Augustine, Fl. She is 29 and absolutely precious. I have said I don't know how many times I wish she lived here in MS with me. She is a great friend but also talker and listener. She loves my kids as if they were her own and I wonder if we should have been sisters and not cousins. She grew up in Orange Park, FL with an older brother and finished her degree at Flager. She currently works for the school in the fundraising department. Alecia is super responsible and I love the fact she can stand on her own two feet and doesn't need anyone to take care of her. She is one of the hardest working people I know - at one point working three jobs. Alecia loves to travel especially with her mom whom she has been on several mission trips with. She has been all over the world. We are currently working on her cooking skills but she has come a long way from learning how to boil water!! ;)  Most importantly she loves Jesus! She has a heart for others and would make a fabulous wife and mama one day!! We LOVE her!!!!

Her and her sweet mama! This is who she gets her hard working ability from!!

My second single is Ryan. I haven't known Ryan very long but I can't say enough wonderful things about him. Let me first start off by saying that if you aren't a young lady that loves the Lord Jesus please don't contact Ryan or myself. He is souled out for Jesus Christ. Serving the Lord and bringing others to Jesus are his top priorities and ladies, you want this to be your number one search for a husband!

Ryan is 24 years old and was born in Birmingham, AL but raised in Missouri. He is the oldest of three (younger sister and brother) and his parents currently live in Missouri where is dad is a minister. He is an awesome athlete playing high school and college football (Southwest Baptist University). He is currently finishing his Ministry and theology degree online AND working on an associate degree at Holmes Community College in Ridgeland, MS. He loves anything outside: hunt, golf, tennis, etc. He does like the LSU tigers but we are going to let that slide. ;) We might be able to work on that with him.
He really feels the Lord is leading him to work with youth but willing to go wherever the Lord leads him. He would love to be a husband to a very special lady and have kids one day. Let me just say this is the truth. This guy LOVES kids and has a heart as big as the moon. He is always willing to help in anyway and always at the church when the doors are open. Polite, charming, cute, a Godly man, etc. I can't say enough good things!

Happy 2nd Birthday, John Paul!

I can not believe this precious little boy is two today. I along with so many others prayed for this precious boy to get here and to be healthy. It is hard to believe a peace that only the Lord can give covered me two years ago today and blessed us with this little boy. We are so blessed!

John Paul, you are hilarious and so sweet! You are such a boy. You love to play outside and do anything you aren't supposed it. Climbing onto things you shouldn't is one of your favorite things. You also LOVE balls, balloons which you call a "loon', and you especially love the moon. Even when it is daylight you are asking for the moon. Sweet Mrs Brooke made you a precious moon cake today! You loved it! You are talking so much and will pretty much repeat whatever we say. You haven't told me you love me yet but I'm working on it with you. ;) Isabella and you have a great relationship. Whenever you get in trouble and start crying she holds out her arms and you go running to her. You also get onto her when she gets in trouble. You are usually right behind me saying, "No, no, sissy!" The two of you have a great relationship and love each other so much! You also love your daddy but it is obvious you are a mama's boy which is just fine by me!
You wear size 2 shirts and longalls but size 12-18 pants. Your teachers at school wanted to start potty training you about a week ago and I've let them. I'm not quite on the band wagon yet but if you continue to do well with them, I might go along with it. You moved up about two weeks ago and these girls just LOVE you which warms my heart so much.
We are so blessed and thankful for you, sweet little man. I can't thank God enough for blessing me one more time to have you. You are completely worth it and I wouldn't change a thing! We love you and looking forward to watching you grow up.
