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,
