Playoffs Round 2


WAY TO GO VIKINGS!!! Great game tonight and the team gave God the glory!!! I am so proud of my son's coaches. They pray before and after every game. What a great testimony. They won the 2nd round play-offs against Powhatan Cheifs 13-12. It was a very, very close game. Derrick made several great plays stopping the runner. It was a complete team effort.
Also one of the players got injured during a play. The team on the field was in a huddle. One of Derrick's team mates spoke up and said "Hey Derrick why don't you pray for Terrance" And so he did....Terrance walked off the field and was able to come back in the game!!! God is good! I told Derrick that is a good testimony to carry that his team mate know he's a Christian and prayer warrior!

One week behind me.

My Uncle sent a great picture from the Memorial Service of my Dad's brothers and sisters shown above. Turned out really good.
Can't believe its been a week since I lost my Daddy. I have the task of going to the Crematory tomorrow to pick up my Daddy's remains. WOW...just cannot believe he's gone. Then I got some more bad news today...please pray for a good friend of my Daddy's and church member; Elliot Keener...he lost his mother this morning. She had been fighting illness for a long time too. They are having to bring her home from Tenessee, please pray for that family.

I have such the hardest time walking in church...can't hardly walk in without crying. I just miss my Daddy so, so much!!!

Pray for Derrick's playoff game tomorrow also...THANKS!!

GOD IS GOOD...all the time.

Moving on....

Good morning. I have to go back to work today. My kids back to their school work. I feel like I'm in a daze, just kind of going through the motions but I'm told this is normal and that this to will pass.

Derrick has his second round play-off game this weekend. His coach dedicated all the game to my Dad on Derrick's behalf. Thought that was really cool for Derrick's sake.

Got a great picture of him from the last game...looking good.
Not to be lost in all the excitement but Savannah took some really nice pictures from train ride in the mountains with the Teen youth from church. I'll post those later as well.
Ok...bye for now. Remember...God is good!!

"Time is a healer"

That is a quote from a good friend of my Dad's...Reverend Bill Worsham. I want to thank everyone that joined us today at the Memorial Services, everyone that brought food, sent a card, shook a hand, gave a hug, branded a smile, typed a bulletin, gave kind words...what ever part was played in making this day memorable and sweet...I THANK YOU!!!
God's grace is sufficient and I pray in the days to come it will continue not only with me but for my Mom, Frances.
I'll tell ya all about the services later.....heading to bed now...been a long day!!
GOD IS GOOD...all the time.

WOW...all I can say is WOW.

I had not idea went I woke this morning...all excited about the Fall Festival that I would end my night the way I did.

My Daddy, daddeo went to be with Jesus and my Nanny and Papa and his Paw Paw in Glory about 8:40 Friday night. just happened so fast. He knew he was ready and had the nurse call me about 3:00 Fri. afternoon. I couldn't get there till about 5:30 because I had to make arrangements at the church and get the game room covered (I HAD SOME GREAT AND WONDERFUL LADIES HELPING ME!!!) He told me he was ready to go and I asked was he sure about going to heaven and he said he was...He knew for sure. I told him ok then I'm ok to let him go.

They turned the vent off around 8:30 and ten minutes later he was with the Lord.

Please pray for my mom during this time....her health isn't great and she's very nervous. Thanks for the prayers.
