Birthday time is here again...well, at least it was here. I'm posting a little late because we've been kinda busy. So I turned 26 last week, hooray! I got a whole bunch of good stuff- a charcoal grill, some cash, a gps and a really fun bday surprise dinner with a bunch of my friends at Escalantes Mexican restaurant. So I suppose the question is, "do I have anything wise to say about getting older?" hmm...I'm glad you asked, because indeed I do. I have learned two important lessons this past year- #1: Listen to God, obey Him and you won't be disappointed. #2: Cherish life and friendship as both are precious, fragile and never guaranteed. Recently I was also blessed with this little bit of encouragement in a birthday card: "Young Blade (referring to me) getting older is like the aging of a fine cheese...and my friend you are turning into a lovely and fragrant Roquefort. That is all for now- take care and watch out for Ike.
We are the Jackson's... Blake and Robin Jackson. We got married May 12th of 2007, so we have been married for four years now! YEA! We met in college at Houston Baptist University where we traveled together in a vocal group and discovered our common passion for music and people! We now have the joy of working together at Community of Faith, a church where we are in full-time ministry, leading worship, hanging out with students, and praising God for the opportunity He has blessed us with to serve together! We were pregnant last Spring and lost our first baby (whom we called Baby Bean). We now have our second bundle of joy that blessed us with his presence May 15, 2011. We named him Nash Whittan Jackson. He is amazing and we could not be more excited to be his parents. Our family is growing and we thank God every day for the amazing things He continues to give us!
