We are a family of fifteen: eight already with Jesus and seven in desperate need of Him. This is the story God is writing in our lives. Proverbs 16:9

Time in Texas

We recently went to east Texas to celebrate the life of Micah's grandmother, Mary Rebecca Childs~ or Granny as everyone so lovingly referred to her, as she left this earth and went to be with Jesus. She was a kind and gentle woman; precious to all who knew her. I have such sweet memories of visiting this home, first on my 15th birthday when Micah and I were just getting to know each other.

We are thankful for Granny and that she is no longer confined to a body that had worn out as she had served her family and church over the years, but is now strong and whole. At the same time, we are sad she is no longer with us. How kind and good is our Father for giving her such a full life and us the opportunity to be blessed by that life.

Andrew enjoyed all the open space to run and play in Texas.
