A Weekend of Celebration! Congratulations to our long time friends, Fred and Leigh Lowery in Bossier City, La. They celebrated 25 years at First Baptist Church and we were fortunate enough to be able to spend the weekend with them and their family and church family to join in all the festivities and did we stay busy!! On Saturday evening we enjoyed a 'girls and guys night out'. The girls went to a wonderful house on the lake and had a great outdoor dinner together and a very fun time. The guys went to eat Mexican, of course! On Sunday morning the celebration service was so fabulous. The church did a great job honoring Bro. Fred and Johnny preached a rip-roaring sermon, as usual followed by a 'family lunch'. Sunday night was an invitation only celebration dinner complete with the #1 George Bush impersonator, John Morgan! He really had a lot of folks fooled! Monday morning we completed the weekend with a great hot breakfast and said our sad goodbyes...or rather, "see you at the convention" goodbyes! We just love the Lowery family as if they were really our kinfolks! We have so much in common.....they have two daughters just like us and they (Christy and Shelby) are the exact same ages as Deanna and Hollie (Hollie is one day older than Shelby and Christy is one month older than Deanna). Christy and Shelby married a preacher and a businessman just like Deanna and Hollie. Fred and Leigh have 4 grandchildren (3 girls and 1 boy) and we have 4 grandchildren (3 girls and 1 boy)! Also...Leigh's mama and my mama are both mamas! Congratulations to the Lowery's! We really love you all!
