An Irrigation Ditch and A Prayer

Tomorrow my precious Uncle Charles will be buried beside his son, who passed away at to early of an age for any child.  
I got my computer back today and wanted to tell you all “You are awesome”... your sweet comments and prayers for our family has been felt and appreciated.  Thank you for your words of comfort and love.  I had to make one of the hardest decisions yesterday, and one, that quite honestly, I was mad that I had to make...
I will not be able to get to Texas for my uncle’s burial.
My precious uncle is my father’s oldest brother.  We will all so miss his laughter and teasing ways, his love and joy at living life with his loved ones.  He loved the LORD, and I am happy that he is no longer sick and hurting.  When his son, Billy Charles, died, I was just a little girl, but I had many happy memories of this older cousin playing with my brother and me.  One of the memories that I treasure is of Billy taking Kim and me swimming in the irrigation ditches on my grandparents farm.  It really WAS fun.  We also would play hide and seek in the corn that was tall and perfect for this game. When Billy Charles died I would pray every night to God and ask Him to tell Billy “hi” for me and that I missed him.  I did this for a very long time.  
Now, all these years later with the loss of my beloved Uncle, I know that the child in me will whisper tonight to the LORD to tell him “hi” and that I love him, and will miss him.  
In memory of this precious man we are giving Asher the name Asher Charles...

Now, to something different...
guess who is coming in tonight?

  2. I am so sorry for your loss, but so thankful for the hope we have in Jesus. Your cuties are so precious!
