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

Low Day

It seemed like a low day today. Maybe it was "trying" to get back to normal, which is not normal. I did not seem to accomplish much at all. Yesterday I was able to get through a lot of Matthew's things, and today, I could not touch anything. Norm felt the same way. It just all so final. And then, our girl's bird died today.
We went to some friend's home for the evening. It helped getting away. We came home to a clean house - the friends we went to, their oldest daughter came with a friend and freshened up our house. That was helpful.
If you are reading this, pray for sleep for Norm & I. Many nights we lay awake until 5 am, which was last night. Norm needs to get up at 6 for work. We are getting quite worn down - and also have bronchitis.
