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

Flu spelled backwards is ULF - that's how we feel!

Yes, we are still dealing with this flu/respitory bug. It's hit our family quite hard. Our oldest son spent most of his day in bed yesterday, and did not go to work today. All the kids have complained of bad headaches, chills, and then being real hot. Katie (3.5) woke up during a nap yesterday and held her head and cried. I can't remember the last time we have all been so sick at one time. (But it's been rather quite in the house and kids are going to bed BEFORE their bedtime without being told numerous times to GO TO BED!!)

We've had some "low key" days, mainly because of the illnesses. Katie (3.5) is our main one the last couple of days who keeps bringing up Matthew's name, and asks "when will he wake up?" She remembers seeing him at the funeral home. She does not understand. She told me today that she is taking care of Matthew's special pillow (an pillow I made with a quilted airplane on that she carries around with her, and HAS to have at bedtime) and that Matthew wants her to take care of it until he comes back. That sweet innocence.

Dear Loni, we are battling that flue bug over here too! All 5 of mine saw the doctor last Wednesday, that was a first... you think you are getting better and then it hits again... congestion, cough, fever and headache. We will pray for you!

Also your sweet little Katie! You are still in my thoughts each day!
in Him,
