A special place always in my heart!

My mom and I had a great relationship and I will always hold a special place in my heart for her.

Today she has gone home to be with the Lord. I will certainly miss her but I am also so thankful for the precious memories I can always hold close to my heart ...from my youngest childhood memories...until just this past week that I chatted with her on the phone. Always such a joy to me to hear her say, "I love you." You were such a good mom and I thank you for your love and encouragement to me.

Your grandkids and greatgrandkids were such a joy to you and I know they will cherish the times spent with you.


"Death is swallowed up in victory."
"O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?"

The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.
But thanks be to god, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

1 Corinthians 15:55-58 (ESV)

A desire to help....

Our granddaughter Ellie, who just turned five, has a burden to pray for the TWR minstry in Myanmar and she wants to help them financially too. She decided to sell her art work to earn money she could then donate to them.

Here she is painting one her pictures...

I was so encouraged to hear of her plan of action ... I bought one of her pictures and here is what I received in the mail today.

 This beautiful picture of a monkey by a coconut tree.

and grandpa received the picture of a cross tree with lots of dots.......

Little brother, Owen, likes to paint too we were happy to receive one of his drawings.

If you are interested in a painting by Ellie to help her earn money for this ministry please let me know and I  will give you her contact information.

Larry was able to get a work permit for Thailand and now we can begin the process of getting a 1 year multiple entry visa.

The Lord is gracious and has given us several people that have been willing to help us with this process.
