March 20, 2016

Today saw Spring come back in season and for  those of us lucky enough to be in the Southern California area, it was a beautiful day. On top of being the beginning of Spring it was also a Lt. Dan Band Concert over at Camp Pendleton, and Jason was a special focus. Actually we were all treated as V.I.P.'s though the real focus was on Jason and what the different funds and foundations have done. The girls both received scholarships for college, and that money will go far in covering the total costs associated. The really nice part was that they are set for an amount that will adjust as time moves on. I think Stacy understood she was receiving a nice gift, but I don't think she fully understands tuition and the costs associated with going to college. Jackie was just having a great time being around so many people who were providing all of us so  much attention.

Jason is doing well and the wounds are continuing to improve, though there is one that seems to have decided to give a little trouble. I am working closely with Rod, from Wound Care, and we believe it won't take too long to get it totally under control. Having the Wearable has been such a great benefit for Jason, as he allowed him to spend a little more time at the concert, and still be relatively comfortable and no additional stress to the rest of his body.

Tomorrow will begin with the girls going to school, and Linda and I will be taking them. Of course Linda will be getting them up and ready, and I will be doing the driving to and from the school. Not really sure how the rest of the day is going to go, other than Jason has an appointment and I'll be going with him.

Tomorrow is a memorable day for Linda and I, as we kind of celebrate it as an anniversary of sorts. It is the day I proposed, 41 years ago. It is also George's 39th birthday. Funny, the 41-year mark doesn't make me feel any older, but George turning 39 does! Oh, well, I am just glad to know that all the boys are doing well and we get to see all of them, from time to time. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Happy anniversary! 40 years ago on the 23rd my husband asked me to marry him!
    When you feel like you' can't make it through another minute and you can't handle anything anymore, that's when the Lord can work the best! He's there for you right now! Praying!
    2 Corinthians 12:9-10 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

  2. Even during the hardest trials of life the Lord is always there! Lifting you up in prayer!
    Habakkuk 3:17-19 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places...

  3. Know that I'm here praying!
    1 Peter 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

  4. Our only true hope is in the Lord! Continuing to pray!
    1 Peter 1:18-19, 21 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot (21) Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.

  5. He lives! He rose from the dead! Praying that you will always keep your eyes on Him!
    Job 19:25-27 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.
