Our Precious Children (and Sad News)

{Early last week, Connie's son David died in a car accident. He left behind a wife and two children.  You can see pictures of Connie's family on the Photos page.}


Part 1  One Day at a Time

Dear ladies , last nite just after dark we were all outside playing with the children and visiting.My new porch is so comfortable when i have alot of company...We didnt have many visitors last evening as we just all needed to be alone with our own family..The children needed extra love and care..A few days ago we had alot of company ....and that was good..So many young men Davids age introduced themselves to me...So many said "David was my best friend"..David was a quiet soul and so loved by all who knew him..He was a best friend to the down and out..he was a steady worker and a good Daddy and a loving husband..On a lighter note John got out the fire crackers .!!.he shot them off a block away..Of course i am sitting on the porch ..and said.."Now who is shooting off fire crackers" !!!!! ??i had no idea it was Johnny..Pretty soon i saw John walking up the street with that silly grin of his...I yell at John "Did you shoot those firecrackers off"? Of  course he said he didnt.Hahahaha ...I am surprised the POLICE didnt show up..But ya know David in Heaven must love seeing all of us doing what we do best..laughing through the tight spots..Broken hearted as we will miss David..But the children need to be cared for ..Life has to happen as it does.One day at a time..We will show our love to David by caring for his wife and children..

Part 2   Winning Your Family

All of my children seem to have a faith of their own..They have some kind of a "positive thinking" that i guess they learned from me..As time goes by they will learn more and more about the God kind of faith...My children almost have a gift of faith..Some have more faith than their siblings..and some have less..But yes...we need to remain sure of God..We must know Him... and know that He is a rewarder to those who diligently seek after Him..MaryL my mentor used to say to me.."Connie if the mother is right with the Lord her children will be too." She meant even when they are grown and married...You can turn your children around just by being right with the Lord yourself..They will see your good works and glorify Your Father in Heaven...Your family can be won to the LORD without words {arguing}..but by the actions of the wife and mother..

Part 3    Our Precious Children

Dear Mothers..last evening we all went out to eat at a restaurant..We wanted to celebrate Romeos birthday age 12...and Lorins B.D too she just turned 6 yrs old...They are Johns little boy and girl...I ask Romeo what he was going to spend his Birthday money on.."Fire-crackers"..he tells me without batting an eye..i have to laugh..Johnny deserves to have a son who loves fire crackers..hahahahaha !!!Some day John will get old and wont be able to get up and run as fast as he does now..Now he can out run a fire cracker..But not so later on when he is old..i hope i get to see the day this happens..{ just kidding} Johnny has always made me laugh, even in my worst moments..... . .i got to sit with lorin age 6 at the restaurant..i ask her how old she thot i was ? and she said 85 yrs old..i loved being with the grandchildren and my children...My children give me spiritual energy...i love them and their Daddy so much..And the Grandchildren are so entertaining too..I praise God for each of them..Love connie
