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

Nine Months

Nine months he grew in me,
Looking forward to what would be,
Now nine months he’s been gone
With many dark dawns.

Sixteen years of shared tears and joy
Sixteen years too short for our boy.
Little did we know how the years would fly
Little did we know how soon we’d say bye.

Now he’s sat at Jesus’ feet
And walked down the golden streets.
And though our hearts are filled with pain,
His life was certainly not in vain.

For Jesus our Savior died on a cross
So our son’s life would not be a loss.
Because he accepted Him in his heart
Now from heaven he’ll never part.

Someday at heaven’s gate we'll meet
And oh how the reunion will be so sweet
Though sixteen years seems such a short run
In heaven we’ll know, we’ve only begun.
