Sweet and Lovable, a Delight to Everyone Julieann, the eighth of the Green children, was born May 2, 2008. A delightful baby from the beginning, Julieann quickly stole the hearts of Mom, Dad, brothers and sisters. In late October 2008, our precious girl was diagnosed with infantile spasms, a rare form of epilepsy. As her illness unfolded, we began documenting her progress on this page so that friends and family would know specifically how to pray for her. We are so thankful to the Lord that her outcome so far is very good. For now, Julieann is seizure-free. We know that the seizures could return tomorrow, or in 10 years - so please continue to pray for her.

"It's just an old piece of wood

On top of four legs


SRF

It's got a few coffee stains


SRF

And a thousand marks from God knows when


SRF

Ain't too many things that could stand the test of time


SRF

But this family table's held together

By a love that never dies


SRF

So won't you come on in?

Supper's almost done, go ahead and call your friends


SRF

'Cause we got room for everyone


SRF

Let's make some memories 'round this nine-foot five

Pull up a chair and stay a while

At the family table

Family table


SRF

It's the corner stone that held us all up


SRF

Through the best of times


SRF

And made our way when times got tough


SRF

We blew the candles out


SRF

And I walked through time


SRF

This family table's bound together

By a love that never dies


SRF

Won't you come on in?

Supper's almost done, go ahead and call your friends

'Cause we got room for everyone

Let's make some memories 'round this nine-foot five

Pull up a chair and stay awhile


SRF

Gather 'round hand in hand

Close our eyes and bow our heads

Thank the Lord for everything's He's done

And for everyone

At the family table


SRF

So please come on in

When your work is done


SRF

Go ahead and wash your hands

Gather around with everyone


SRF

Making memories 'round this nine-foot five

No other place can ease your mind

Like the family table

Family table..."

"It is one of the misfortunes of our times that the home is being so robbed of its evenings by business, by pleasure, and by society...To the evening, and especially the winter's evening, belong mainly the influences of domestic life.


SRF

Its few short hours are all the uninterrupted time we have at our disposal to know our own or be known of them.


SRF

The impression that home leaves upon the child comes largely from its evenings.


SRF

The visions which memory delights in conjuring up


SRF

are the old scenes


SRF

about the evening fire or the evening lamp." ---J. R. Miller
