Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

September 12, 2009: Julia Claire Jex is Baptized!

We were up bright and early this morning to drive to Jackson for Julia Claire's Baptism. It was a beautiful ceremony at St. Richard's. The priest said Jules is already a great Catholic because she slept through the entire ceremony, even when they poured the water over her head. She looked beautiful in her Christening gown and bonnet. Zach and I were in awe...she is precious and what a head of hair! I hope our children get the "Jex hair"...and the Jex height!

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
