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

Another Child Dies (UPDATED w/ obituary)

I was sent a link to this newspaper article. A young boy in Idaho died in a similar way. There are so many different names to this . . ."During the course of the investigation it was learned that there is a game that is common knowledge to many of our youth. A game known as the 'pass-out game,' the 'fainting game,' the 'tingling game,' or the 'something dreaming game' — to name a few," the statement added.

and the same article was also on
UPDATE: 07/14/05
I just received the obituary - here are parts of it - just more similarities with Matthew. Please pray for this family. They are hurting so much. I am sending them a note tomorrow. It just angers me again, as we go through this grieving process, how satan got into another young man's life. We need to continue to pray, pray, pray for our children and pray for that hedge around that to keep satan's grip out. It just takes one foolish mistake. May God give these parents and siblings people like we have had in our lives to help carry them through these very dark days ahead.
