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

Choking Game on Oprah today

I don't normally watch Oprah, but have gotten numerous e-mails that a segment regarding the "choking game" will be on her show today. You can read about some of it here, and from that link there are several links of stories of children who have died from this.

Also, got this article that is quite long, and revealing that you might want to read through. Here are a few thoughts from it:

The game is seen as a clean, quick, drug-free high by teens . . . children with good grades, nice homes, doting parents and too little life experience to consider its dangerous side . . .

Gated communities, wealthy families and private schools might shield our kids from urban threats, but not from their own adolescent missteps . . .

For a 30-second rush, it can cause brain damage, cardiac arrest, physical injuries from falling ordeath from asphyxiation, according to doctors. Medical examiners across the country are just beginning to realize that some teenage deaths ruled suicides may actually be accidents. A conference in Los Angeles last month of the National Assn. of Medical Examiners featured a seminar suggesting that coroners have been slow to recognize the phenomenon of "asphyxial games."
