Thanks to all of you who are praying for me. The last week ws rather difficult for me. I came upon a journal George wrote while we were dating. How sweet it is to have his thoughts on paper. To read about his feelings and questions and love for me the things he was bringing before the Lord about our possible future together. How much I began missing him. His spark for life, his effervescent humor and contagious laughter. Noone can lighten a room like my George. I am so happy for him and his time being with Jesus and all the saints that have gone before. But oh how wide is the void left beause he is gone.

Daily, I make it through because Jesus is the comforter of my soul. Daily, I make it through because my kids help me be strong. Daily I make it through because George would have it no other way. I love you all and am so thnkful for your continued prayers for me and the kids.

Lauren turned 18 yesterday. My precious sweet Lauren has crossed into adulthood. She is officially an adult. I love and respect her so much. Her love and commitment to the Lord is inspiring and she follows in her dad's footsteps with her song writing and musical ability. Happy birthday Lauren.

Happy Birthday Lauren, you are such a blessing to us and especially very special to little Jonah!
Robin, the Lord loves you, I know you don't need me to remind you of that...He knew ALL of this ALL along and I know He will not let anyone of us down.
I am reminded of the story of how a pearl is formed in an oyster...
It starts out as a serious irritating grain of sand that enters the flesh of the invading thing! The oyster has no choice but to secrete a milky substance called nacre, that coats the irritating intruder, smoothing the edges of the grain of sand over and over again.
As far as the oyster is concerned this inborn survival technique is only utilized to take care of the present need and make life more bearable and comfortable...Yet, all the while, unknown to the oyster, something quite rare, precious and beautiful is being tedious step at a time. GLORY is gradually being born out of adversity!
My prayers are seriously constantly being spoken on your behalf,and the day you will meet the man that God has yet to show you in your heart! I believe that.

Happy Birthday Lauren,
Robin I am praying for you and I do understand the void you must have in your heart for George. I know I have been missing him myself. The joy he brought to everyone's life. Can you imagaine the time he is having with Jesus. I bet heaven is not the same with our George. I love you and will continue to pray for you. I was sitting on my couch Saturday thinking about how much I miss those Saturdays at my mom sitting on her couch looking out the front door. I do miss my mom and still it is hard to believe she is no longer with us. I know God will see us through each difficult time in our lives. I love you Gayle
