6 years...

This morning I look back and say "how can it be 6 years"? To me it there are days it is just not even real yet, days that it seems longer, days it seems like yesterday.
It still is hard, it hurts. I still have your number in my phone, so if as to call you on a recipe, tell you what my latest sewing/craft venture is! Smile
The thing is I so can remember you saying "as you get older...(ahem) Lori I mean, mature in age, you will see how life begins to look, shorter days, time moving  quickly and years shorter". Okay....I am thinking this is so true.... so much to tell you, the children are so much bigger, older, taller, mature, Jodi finally looks maybe 40, still has clear sparkly eyes that tell much with her saying nothing (still call her bob) smile I think Lisa and I "always" will (forever)....I yes am happy to say her quilt is done and getting used! I am so thankful that Dad is well after open heart surgery, we are all well, Lisa is still doing what she does {smile} and yes, Rob will turn a mature I hear motorcycle ride coming for him? Cougar still spoiled ...........we, continue to do lots of ministry, the boys are all "young men" life keeps moving, moving and waits for no one! Home's still in the process (always) ...camping still happening.... The thing is there are always the holes there of the loved ones that have gone on before us, we still shed tears, laugh at stories and remember the "time when, this, that, etc" the thing is....
yes, I am thankful for the time we had, wish we'd have had so much more, God chose the day the time and we must always give thanks.... I am learning now so much from your leaving and yes, Jackie'O sister of mine...forever I will miss you, for ever I thank God for what we had and for you!
I love and miss you today and always.....................
....I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,
~Philippians 1:3

Morning has Broken

Yesterday morning when my sweet youngest son came down he started singing this....
He said "this was in my head singing"? He has heard it by someone else....?
(we don't listen to this artist?)
Sweet how children think, blessed me!
Have a blessed day and remember to thank God for the new morning!

John 15:9-13
As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

1 John 4:17-21
17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
19 We love him, because he first loved us.
20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

One who Reveres...

.........Psalm 128
128 Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in his ways.
For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.
Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.
Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord.
The Lord shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.
Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children, and peace upon Israel.
