It sounds like there is a bit of peace in the changes. What huge hearts your parents have to take on all that is required--now we know where your heart grew from!

Wishing you and your family a happy, blessed new year!

Hey T, we are glad to have you in the office as much as you can be. You are contributing greatly, especially for the things I need on the web site.

Know I still pray for you and all your girls.



Lifting your family in prayer

I hope Joanne will get to watch 'Downton Abbey' and also "Call the Midwife' on the telly. I know she would enjoy both :)


Praying that school is going well for the girls. Glad you have a good change with the drive and more of a chance to spend time at work. It does feel good to contribute and spend time with colleagues, especially if you like & respect them. Now I'll pray that Joanne feels comfortable and good in her new surroundings.
