Hello everyone, WOW I can’t believe it’s been so long since I made a post on here. There has been a lot of things going on in our lives, too much to list it all but I will hit the high points. We are all good. Jennie and I are very involved at our church with both of us involved in the children’s ministry. We are in the middle of some home renovations and preparing to host foster children in our home...very exciting. Jennie’s work is good (very busy) and she will soon begin a new role which could be fun. My work has been good too, a little inconsistent getting new work but that has allowed me to get my Real Estate license and start a new career at eXp realty which has been fun, so if anyone is looking for a realtor I’m your man. Noah is great, almost done with his 4th grade year...he’s not a big fan of school but he’s doing good. He’s been playing football the last couple of years and is on a really good team but he’s disappointed because they lost the Super Bowl 2 years in a row, but hey at least they got to play in the big game...I understand his frustration though. Next year!!! Ok now for the reason I’m here and it’s not to bring y’all down.
Today is another milestone day without our dear Hunter. Today would be her 16th birthday and it’s hitting me a little harder than I thought it would, maybe it’s just coming on here and sharing this with you (I’m not real big of sharing feelings) I guess that’s just my inner 12 year old who still cracks up over fart jokes but anyway, like I said I’m not here to bring you down. God has brought us to it and He has brought us through it and contrary to the old adage, He does allow you to go through things YOU can’t handle but there is nothing HE can’t handle. God may have to drag you kicking and screaming like a 2 year old in a grocery store but He’s got you and He won’t let you go and just like your mom or dad at the time said no to that cookie (or what ever it was ) they had their reasons because unlike you they knew about the bigger better plans they had for you; just as God knows what is best for you, He sees the whole picture not just the one moment in time. I was going to insert some corresponding scriptures in here but this has taken up enough of your and my time for the day...with Easter right around the corner though I will leave y’all with just one. I feel like everyone knows John 3:16 but it’s the very next one that is one of my favorites “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”
John 3:17 CSB
Happy 16th Birthday baby girl.
Love you and miss you.
Ps: I’ve added some photos of some family time in south GA doing a paper lantern release for her birthday, thank you aunt Beth for doing that it was sweet.
