So many signs and a super gifter

Many signs are currently taking residence in our front yard.

We are all about highlighting people running for county elections .

We are also excited about the contractors sign. Whoop Whoop for contractors.

But the best sign came via the front door last night.

Steve and I were in attic/movie room watching a movie when we heard the dogs frantically barking downstairs. So annoyed, the movie gets put on pause, Steve hauls it down 3 flights of stairs to yell at dogs because Jack has already gone to bed and the last thing on our wish list is to have a baby woken up.

Steve is gone for a while and I wonder…….

What is he getting to eat?

How long does it take him to go to the bathroom?

He’s checking on some score from some game on the television.

He returns.

He says “there were some guys at the door.”

“Who?” I responded.

“It was Matt and some other guys selling signs raising money for a missions trip. He said to tell you he loves you.”

Ah!!!!! Dang it! All those thoughts about what Steve was doing when he was really doing good!

I love you too Matt!!!

The “In God We Trust” sign is definitely my favorite. We do trust Him.

This morning at church we began a new series titled “The Reveal.” Its a study on the end times.

Pastor Mark spoke at one point about those who have gone to heaven ahead of us and that we have privilege as followers of Jesus to know that without a shadow of doubt that our loved ones who professed their faith loud and strong will be waiting for us.

In God We Trust

In God I Trust

Dad went to heaven 6 months ago yesterday.

I know that without a shadow of a doubt.

Zero question that one day we will be together again.

Today, upon returning home from church, there were gift bags on the counter.

It’s not anyone’s birthday.

Mother’s Day and Father’s Day have passed. July 4th gifts. No way.

As I peeked passed the tissue paper, I caught my breath.

Tears people….the size of dinner plates sprung from eyes.

My son Justin had found pictures in his phone and had them printed. For no reason. For no occasion.

Not knowing the date was so special

For love of family.

Dad and Jack.

Justin takes the title of best gift giver.

I hate hate hate hate that Jack will not know his Papa. However I will share pictures and stories of how much he loved him and that one day we will all be together again.

Have a blessed week friends.

In God We Trust.
