Emma's 5th Birthday

Emma and Ethan Pilcher and Emma's 5th birthday party!

Pastors Darren and Michelle Pilcher with their beautiful children!

Emma's guests at her birthday party all around the fountain!

This was a very special tea party for me to host because this was for our pastor's family. Our family attends Lakeside Assembly of God and you can visit my pastor's blog at People who rise above the crowd have standards higher than the crowd's; their lives are not solely their own but are invested in something much larger than themselves. Dedication, consecration and surrender are interchangeable terms that apply to pastor's families. Being a P.K. (preacher's kid) myself, I am partial to my pastor's family because Darren and Michelle are both preacher's kids. It takes one to know one. You can't shine your brightest in a world that's going on twenty-five watts. When you put effort and energy into what you believe in, you're using the power of your inner light to effect change for the better, not only within yourself but all around you. Pastor Darren is always using the lighthouse as a metaphor for our lives as Christians and also our church.

Let your little light shine..."some people are called to large efforts in the world, others to large efforts on a smaller scale. Destiny and temperament determine the size of your stage; you yourself determine the quality of the performance."

Matthew 5:15 - "Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house."
