One heck of a busy day for Jason. We began with appointments and then visited with Stacy and Jackie at their childcare center. The girls were very excited to see us, and I did get some pictures (to be posted tomorrow). We stayed for a little while, and were even invited to have lunch with them - tempting because they were having tacos - but we needed to get back to the house. Jason had been up for several hours by now, and he needed to get back down. It was so refreshing to see the girls and see how well Jackie is progressing. It can really be seen just how good the childcare environment is helping her develop. Stacy is getting so big and growing up so nicely. It was great seeing her in an outfit that Linda had purchased for her, and it fit her so nicely.

Linda and I went to pick up a few things at the post office, mail packages that had come in. There was also a package from FedEx that Jason had been looking for. It was the one with his EOD painting and his award for crossing the Equator, while he was out on the MEU (Marine Expeditionary Unit) . There is a big tradition in the Navy for crossing the Equator and Jason felt that this was something very special for him so I was glad to see it come in. The EOD painting was an original, done just for Jason, so that made it pretty special for him also. Anyway, they're both here now and he can relax a little about them.

Looks like we will be able to get back up to Livermore a little later this month. I am working with a couple of other folks right now who are helping with the transportation needs. A direct drive up to the Bay Area is just about out of the question right now. It would probably take us two and a half days to get there from here, as we would be stopping frequently. There are a bunch of folks who are anxious to see Jason, and we expect that there is going to be a good time when we get there. The unfortunate side is that he won't be able to get back into our home, as there would be far too much needed, in the way of modifications, to allow it to happen. Eventually, Jason will be needing to build his own home, and that's where he will be able to live, as comfortably as anybody else. There have been a few discussions about what he plans to do over the next couple of years, so when this is all finally settled he will be in his own home, going to work, and being a part of middle America, just like Linda and I. Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers.

  1. So the plan is to eventually get Jason to Livermore for good?
    Know that I'm here praying!
    Psalms 40:16-17 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified. But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.

  2. Life can be overwhelming at times, but the victory is ours through Christ! Put your trust in Him! Praying!
    1 Corinthians 15:54-57 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
