Hello Out There


It has been a while since I updated. Things have been very busy here. My brother James has been very ill with cancer in his adrenal gland. I have spent a lot of time trying to help out with his care and things he needs done.


Mom fell and had a deep bone bruise and strain in her right leg. She is doing much better.


Alex came back to the United States from Iraq on August 17th. We stayed in touch the whole time he was deployed through MSN Messenger. That made his being gone much easier. He was home on leave from September 3rd to September 16th. We spent a lot of time together and had a great time.


I am doing well. Today I wrote a poem I want to include. I came up with the first four lines while I was driving home from town earlier and finished it in Word here at home.


Uncommon Grace


When I look upon your face

I see God’s outstanding grace

Embodied in you,

Given to me.


Oh what a blessing

To have a child like you,

Because there are few

Who do as you do.


Making me proud

Every step of the way,

By the actions you take

Every single day.


You are a true gift from God

So precious and dear,

Who grows in worth

From year to year.

I hope each of you is doing well.


I am sorry it has been so long since I posted, but it seems that life happens and I do not seem to get around to updating often.
