pictures...

Soon I will try to learn how to add pictures to the blog. I will post pictures of Lauren's homecoming. Lauren and her volleyball team won their game last night. They play again Wednesday. It will be Lauren's last volleyball game of her high school career. I know this year is going to fly by and there will be many emotional moments. These are the times when missing George is so evident. When there are things he should be at or doing is when the reality of our situation hits the hardest. But the truth of the matter is I would never want him back in the condition he was in. Now he is whole and healthy and his body will never again have to see death. He has made it. He has gone before us. He is where we all desire and long to be. At least that's what we say when we sing worship songs and when we pray. However, if faced with our mortality many of us cringe at the thought of leaving what we know behind. I have really desired my perspective to change and to see more things in light of eternity. I have tried to allow what we have been through to show me the way. How does God want me to handle certain situations, certain people? How does the Lord want me to use the experience I have been through to help others?

I want to see the Kingdom of God advance. Together we can purpose to do that. If we live each day to the fullest and seek opportunities God brings into our path then we can affect eternity in the here and now.

I love you all,
Robin

Robin,
My heart truly goes out to you. I know this is a difficult time for you and the children. This is a special time for Lauren and she is such a special girl. I will be praying that the emptiness will be replace with the love that only your Heavenly Father can provide. One day you will see exactly why you are going through this part of your life. I believe that the Lord will use you in a mightly way as He has in the past. You are a blessing and a wonderful mother. Give her all the love and special attention and to my little buddy Bryan as well. Let me know if there is anything we can do. I would be happy to let Bryan come and spend the night with Jacob. Don't hesitate to call. I know Jacob would love to have him over. Love you Gayle

I miss George a lot. Sometimes I will just start thinking about how hard it is to believe that he is no longer here on this earth with us. Then I start to think about what he is doing right now and I can't even imagine but I know it is GOOD.
