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

I've Been TAGGED - AGAIN! (Childhood Memories)

First, I am to name five things I miss from childhood.

1. I miss my grandpa - the man that all my friends called "grandpa". I miss hearing him say, when he couldn't hear, "Your what hurts you?". I miss going in his room, seeing his Bible on his lap. I miss going on errand runs with him on Fridays to a "Mr H's" Hamburger place while my mom cleaned the house.

2. I miss the "simple" summers - which was mainly swimming in our backyard swimming pool, sitting under a tree and reading or lying on my back and watching the clouds to find various shapes.

3. I miss some of the special "home" holidays, especially remember my Aunt Violet who made wonderful desserts. Ever hear of Shaum Torte? It's a German dessert - a hard shell-meringue great with ice cream. She also made beautiful cut out cookies - little gingerbread cookies that look to cute to eat!

4. I miss my mom & dad - for what could have been, never was and what was.

5. I miss special friendships that will never be forgotten, even with distance and time - Cindy Anderson, Laurie Sommers, Leslie Knauf, John Lochemes, Heidi Sawall, Denise Pingry, etc. These people still come back to mind, and remember their special part in my life through my childhood even through some very lonely times.

And, I need to add, what I miss the most of all times, is my son, Matthew. There is no ache more than this type of missing.

The rules:

Remove the first person from the following list, bump everyone up one spot and put your name in the number 5 spot. Please link all of the blogs as they are linked now or risk future blog-shunning.

Subliminal Koolaid
Lady Mac
Shades of Pink
Mommy Brain
Journaling Through The Valley

(I don't read all of these blogs, so I can't vouch for the content. Please don't leave me any comments scolding me for what you find there!)

Now, select four unsuspecting souls and add them to the list...

Threefold Cord
Walking Circumspectly
My Three Pennies Worth

Hi Loni,
I found you through Amy and Kristen. I've enjoyed reading about your sweet family, and I was deeply saddened to read about your precious Matthew. I will be praying for peace and comfort for your family, especially the two brave brothers who found him.
