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

Past 4 weeks

For now, I don't think Saturdays will ever be the same. I always looked forward to them as our famiy days, days to get projects done, and when Norm would be home from work. Now, I watch the clock, remembering where we were four weeks ago. We got through the 4th Saturday.

The children (& us) are still having our ups and downs. We are eating as a "family" at the table now, but it is hard. There's usually tears after the prayer time. Right now it just seems a lot of life is mechanical. We do the things we have to. There's just that terrible ache and pain we have to work through, and seeing our children ache makes it that much worse.

I got a beautiful angel today I want to share with you. I hope the picture comes out well. A close friend of mine died almost two years ago. I still miss her so much. One of her other friends put this angel by her gravesite and I asked her where she got it from. Today I was blessed with it as a gift. It's on our piano for now, and will be put in between Angela & Matthew's gravesite in the spring.

Keep praying for our family. We thank you for your continued prayers, cards and e-mails. Don't stop!

Dear Norm, Loni & children,
My computer has been down for a week. I just wanted you to know I check the blog often and the website and Matthews guest book. I am praying for all of you. I am thinking of you so much today as I know you are remembering. I can not imagine what you are going through but I can keep praying for the Lord to give you His strength DAILY. I am praying for the children too. Last year (on the 15th) my dear friend Polly died. I still hurt and I find myself missing her and going over everything. You truly helped me so much through this...
and I feel at such a loss to be able to help you. PLEASE know I think of you daily. Will check back often,
