Thank you for stopping by. It's my hope you find glimpses of my Savior interwoven thru my writings. I am the wife to one husband for over 25 years, a blessed mama to a dozen children, yes each born from me ~ two of which see Jesus face to face & ten at home, all of us yearning to see Jesus someday. We have been home educating for over 18 years with . . . well, another 15 years to go (the youngest is 3, the oldest 23!) I have walked through rejection, to continually learning I am CALLED, LOVED and forever KEPT by God - never, ever to be rejected by Jesus! (Jude 1:1) I've walked through deep sorrow to find that joy does come again, though the night may be long; I've witnessed God orchestrating miracles with my children still beyond my comprehension, & I am seeing new love forming as we begin a new road of older children finding life mates. My life has and is a journey, from the deepest, almost rock bottom pit, to stumbling through my faith and looking towards the ultimate climax of everlasting life in heaven. Will you be joining me here and there? ~ Loni

Better Day . . .

It was a laid back day. Both Jessica & Benjamin especially had some tough moments and still have so many questions. Just going into the library today, we met two people, and were immediately tearful as they had heard about Matthew.
I bought a new photo/memory album today. It will give me something to work with and through as we put his pictures together. I had gotten quite behind with his.
We all sat at the dining room table tonight for dinner - a first since Matthew's death. Melody was still in a youth chair, so she got Matthew's chair, which at the age of 5 she took as something pretty neat. We then still switched a couple seats around. The hardest moment, was starting. Norm prayed, and mentioned about giving us peace as we start this first meal at the table without Matthew. When we all opened our eyes, there were quite a few tears, but we made it.

We are still getting so many cards and letters in the regular mail & e-mails. It's been so helpful with the daily encouragements. THANK YOU

We purchased a puppy from you in July (Black Lab Mix) and were so impressed with your children and how they handled themselves during our visit. Our prayers are with your family as you travel this difficult road.
We are deeply saddened to hear of the loss of your son
Matthew. May the Lord bless you all.
