Susan Rubey

Hi and happy birthday from Susan Rubey. We don't really know each other yet, but I'm excited to see what the future holds for Colwood with you guys here! Looking forward to getting to know both of you more.

You are always sunshine and laughter. Knowing you these last 3 1/2 years has been a blessing in my life.
Happy Birthday Amber.

Hi Amber, Happy Birthday, I hope that you have a super fantastic day. I have not had the pleasure of getting to know you yet but i look forward to as you and your husband serve as our leaders. Have a wonderful day! Be Blessed, you are a blessing.


Hi Amber - I don't think we've ever formally met, even though we did both go to Oakpointe around the same time. I want to say that your unrelenting dependence on God's provision and guidance is encouraging. I read some of the things you write and think to myself "Wow I could not do that" and "OMG she is totally walking the walk". It is refreshing to read someone who is honest in her struggles, deliberate in her convictions and decisions, and not preachy or weird. I love your blog and wish you a happy happy birthday! Keep posting. I love it (especially the stones series).

Happy Birthday Amber!!!
Hope your day is wonderful and full of love.
Thanks for always having a warm, friendly smile for me at church~it sounds simple, but I know it's genuine and that means so much!! Looking forward to a day when we have more opportunity to get to know each other- mom-to-mom.
Enjoy your day!!

"Hey Snickers, how can we get out of here to go visit Amber?"
"I don't know Schweeny, I wish we could go see her to wish her a happy birthday."
"Me too Snickers, I wish we could let her know we are doing great at our new home but still miss her."
"I know Schweeny, I'll go get on the computer and send her a message."
"Great idea Snickers, hurry before anyone comes home."
HaPpY bIrThDaY Amber!!!!
Love, Snickers & Schweeny


Amber, you are the best sister-in-law a girl could ask for! I may have been a punk pre-teen when you came into my life, but through the years you have shown me what it looks like to have a healthy marriage, ways to serve your family, and how to save money! You're a wonderful mom, wife, sister, aunt, and woman of God!
I (we) love you!

To paraphrase a line from "Knight's Tale": It is obvious that your son and your husband love you. If I knew nothing else about you, that would be enough. Have a WONDERFUL birthday.

Sarah and Avaree

Happy Birthday Amber! We love and miss you! It has been way to long! Your niece Avaree would love to meet you and her cousin! Hope you have an AMAZING day!

Sarah and Avaree!

Though we didn't live near each other for very long, I consider you a special friend. I've been lucky to get to you know you better "through the web" over the past couple of years -- your blog is an inspiration and full of wonderful things. Have a happy birthday!

Nicole Ross

Happy Birthday! Enjoy your day!


I am happy to join in! Amber, you have one of the sweetest and loving hearts I have ever seen! You inspire me on a regular basis, with things like parenting, cooking, taking care of your house and finances, your marriage, your faith...the list goes on and on! You are so special and I wish you all the best on your birthday!

Susan Halke (amber's mom)

Happy Birthday my Angel. You have been such a blessing to me and dad (Bill) we love you so much and hope you have had a wonderful day. I miss you guys so much and it has only been a month. Have a great date with Jon and shopping.

Sharon Herron

Happy birthday Amber -- We thank God every day for bringing you into our lives. Thanks for being such a loving, wonderful wife to our son and mother to our grandson! You are as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside.

Hi. I'm a member of Colwood, but I live a few miles away (like in Korea) - but I'll be in the Thumb for home assignment in Feb. Happy Birhtday ... and I don't know you either yet, but if you have a husband who cares enough to write what he did on your blog, and who cares enough to notice your love language - you are blessed. The Lord loves you, and so does Jon, and it seems like a whole bunch of other people do too. 'He has known you since you were in your mother's womb ... He holds you, before and behind; He has laid His hand upon you. He thinks about you a lot' (paraphrase from Psalm 139). saeng-il chook-ah-hay-yo / happy birthday, in Korea!
