Aw...Mondays and Love is....


Aw...Mondays Here is a boy in a box! Sometime the box is fun just like the gift that came inside of it! This fellow is so sweet and he has a funny side and very serious side. I think he had tons of fun! 

A big brother in the box! We had tons of fun and so did the little ones. What a blessing they are. 

Love is...sends a great message everytime. I Love the black and white comic strip from days gone by but the colorful ones are precious too.

Prayers requested, our son Jeremy lost a good friend yesterday. John passed away unexpectedly. His phamily is mourning this devastating loss and asked for prayer and privacy at this time. John was a kind young man. He always had a kind word for us when he visited and he willbe greatly missed. His mom, dad, sister and other phamily members are in shock. 

To tell you how kind he was, when our youngest Nick went off to college in Ark City, Kansas. John's cousin was the girls soccer coach. He called his cousin and told him to make sure Nick felt welcome. He is going to be missed.

John was in Jeremy's 2016 wedding. Several of the guys changed their profile photo with a photo of John and themselves. Rest In Peace. You were greatly loved in this life.

Romans 8:18 "I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed to us. " 

This morning, I felt sad for some reason before Jeremy let us know about John's passing. I took to my Scriptures as I try to post one daily, I chose this one:

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. " 2 Timothy 4:7

Rest easy John.

How terribly sad, especially at this time of the year and so unexpectedly for one so young. I am familiar with kids who love the box perhaps even more than the gift that is in it. A box can be anything if you have a good imagination.

How painful to have lost John so suddenly ... particularly in this season of joy. I'm sorry, Anne.
So glad you were able to capture these darling pictures of Brody! (Or, is that Blake?)
