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

Cheesecake memories . . .

When I was pregnant with Melody (now 5) I craved cheesecake. Matthew made me MANY from scratch (not the box mixes) and did a wonderful job. It was also one of his favorite desserts, so that probably was one reason he made it.

This past Thanksgiving we had our own Thanksgiving - not going anywhere - just our own immediate family. We went all out with the good China and stemware, and silverware. Even told the boys to wear nice shirts and the girls dresses. They could not figure it out, when no one was coming. But for "some reason" this year we were prompted by God - maybe to make memories. I asked Matthew to make cheesecake, but he was working a lot of hours with the holidays keeping him so busy, so I did not pester him with it. I surprised him - told the kids not to tell him, and we had cheesecake for dessert that Thanksgiving. He was thrilled. I made a hit with him. Out of all the desserts that could have been made (and it was NOT pumpkin pie!) we made cherry cheesecake. Little did we know . . . Thank you Lord.

And no wonder today, when I was grocery shopping, and saw cheesecake, the tears came quickly. If you go by the cheesecake in your grocery isle - maybe God will bring us to mind. Keep praying for us.
