In 2003, a bright cheery-eyed girl bounced into the second grade Sunday School class at First Baptist Church. Her brown hair and new tooth smile drew you to her instantly. She wasn't very sure about a lot of things as I found out in our talks. One thing she was sure of though was her desire to be happy!

One discussion that I vividly remember us having and laughing about was the "Michelle" song by the Beatles. Michelle, ma belle. These are words that go together well. My Michelle. And she said, "Michele with one "l" :) And, that was that.


Michele had a way of not letting go and she continually revisited her second-grade teachers for many years, always with a smile and a hug.





A few years later Michele's sweet brother, Trey, promoted into the 2nd grade Sunday School room. Mrs. Kaufman and Mrs. Wall, once again were blessed with another "happy" Waller child. Trey has the same sweet & happy spirit; the Waller way.

(I am purposefully not posting his 2nd grade Sunday School picture for his privacy. I have it and it is adorable. Love me some Trey-boy)

Please pray for Trey's testimony as God prepares the way for him in the seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years ahead. 


Everyone has a special story, journey, something to share about the weaving of the Waller family in their lives. While we were away this weekend, it was a source of comfort to see so many sharing their love for this family. God is good and in our valley he brings us out stronger. We are homesick, but he provides a way.





Colossians 3:12  Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience ... 

Michele was chosen as God's to share compassion, kindness, humility, meekness and patience. In her Salvation, she found peace and her happy!
