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

A Little Brag'in

I am going to brag for a moment. I hope you don't mind! Our oldest son is taking an automotive course at our local community college. He took his first "mid-term" exam last week. He had his class today - and he got a 96% - but not just that, he got the highest grade in the class! Most of the people are quite a bit older than him. I just thought it was pretty neat.
Not too much else new here. Thankfully we seem to be all over the illnesses. Jayson & Stephen both had orthodontist appointments, mainly as a check up from their truck accident back in January which affected both of their jaws. Stephen is doing fine, and will just have to wear his brace every other day, as a maintenance type thing. Jayson's will sometimes fall out in the middle of the night, and then his jaw will lock up. So, now we have to go through the whole procedure to see if actual braces will be covered by our auto insurance. Stephen does have to get his wisdom teeth out too - they are lying sideways.
Norm and the boys have been busy getting wood for our heat for the winter. They found a huge maple tree that was already down at a construction site, and they have gotten about 4 truckloads of that. Thankfully he did get a few lawnmower and weedwacker job repairs too this week. Puppy sales have been VERY slow - non existant, right now.
I just published a new book review that I hope you will take the time to read. Thank you!
