Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends and remember those that are enjoying the wonders of eternity!!! We have so much to give thanks for!! I want to say a heartfelt thank you to all of you for keeping up with our family! It was this time in 2006 that our journey was beginning with Joel. We stayed home and did not travel to Houston because of the fevers Joel was experiencing! Our hearts were heavy with the "unknown" at this time 5 years a go. To even consider that his time on earth, his little story was coming to its end as Dec approached and Jan neared and we had no idea what lie ahead, I still grieve! I can hardly sit in church and hear a sermon like I heard last Sunday on God's Providence and hold back tears of grief, yet tears of hope and joy that all went according to God's divine plan for Joel! So today I am thankful for Plans, plans that are carried out in LOVE to each of us! I am thankful for Joel's life, for the time we had with him on this earth. I look forward to the day when "time" will turn into "forever!!"
So thank you for all you have done for and with our family via this blog, it was Joel's blog and I continue to pray that his little life will always be a light for hope!!!
