Grandmother's Home Going

My last grandparent, Grandma Vernetta Matthews, had her homegoing this morning at 1:00 a.m. Grandma was the mom of four kids: Paul Matthews, Shirley Stevens and twins Nancy Long (my mom) and Hugh Matthews. Grandma left us at the age of 93. She will be missed, but she will live on in her children (4), grandchildren (10) and great grandchildren (15+).

Update and getting rid of some stuff.

Well, I missed blogging, but as many of you may know...December 18th/21st was the Foley Family G.I.F.T day. (God is faithful and true) We celebrated Ethan's birthday on this day, but we were reminded and celebrated the life of our children, and esp. Ivee. It has been 2 years since her "fall" from the grocery cart and diagnosis. Em and I fell very blessed to have our children, and we are overwhelmed by the memories of our journey over the past two years.
May we all remember that children are a gift from God, and may we teach them to walk in truth and in the light of Christ. May we not stray from our responsibility to them, and may we be reminded daily that we are not promised tomorrow. So, live each day to the fullest, and take advantage of every chance you have to hug someone and tell then you love them!

I've got some stuff on craigslist, but I thought I would put it on here in case one of you were looking for something or if you knew someone who was looking.
We are selling our couch and loveseat, just asking $350 for both. They are in good shape.

Also, still selling a changing table and crib. Asking $150 for both. I can work with anyone on the prices if I need to. Should have a yard sale within the next month to get some stuff out of the house, so if you are interested you may need to jump on it.
Thanks and take care. God bless you!

Just a note of Thanks

To the Rodericks, McLeods and Hildreths...thank you for the boxes of clothing. I was surprised to come home and find them on the porch. I feel like I am missing someone, but I'll have to go home and see. I seem to have only a few minutes at work to post, so I am trying to remember these names from breif glances.
The play was a success. I haven't done one by myself before, but the Lord provided needs and blessed everyone involved and in the congregation. I expected to come out seeing about 250 to 300 people, but there were (including the cast/choir/band, children and workers in the nursery) about 530 people. About 475 to 500 in the audience. We didn't count, so I don't know for sure. I didn't really get to see alot of people cause my back is to the people all the time. But I was told there were alot of people who use to come here, and people who may not have been to church in a long time, and then some people who's names are big in the community here. I was just shocked! That is all I can say. God is good and faithful, and remember "Jesus is the reason for the season...but so are you!"

The Reason

I want to invite all of you to our production at the church this weekend. I am posting the info below. Also, you can take a look at the poster and get more info from our church website. That address is www.faithfamilyonline.com. I would put it all on here, but my church PC will not allow me access to post any pics or anything. If I have never meet you and you decide to come, please see me afterwards so I can meet you and introduce you to Ivee. Thanks for always lifting us up in prayer. God bless.
