I will be away from the computer the next couple of days as our family spends time together....Monday afternoon our family and the community will be gathering on the baseball field that little Rob loved to be at from 4 to 7....Then afterwards some wonderful people in my brother's life has arranged a fireworks display to celebrate little Rob's life....I KNOW he would have loved it!!

Then his funeral is on Tuesday....Prayers are being answered...My voice is getting stronger...That one vocal cord is gaining strength....I have to throw my voice more to sing with one and it's physically tiring, but God is showing his mighty hand!!!

On a funny note....Only in my life!!!...I dropped one of the farmhouse chairs on my foot...Now it is swelled, bruised, and blue...So, I will hobble up there in a sock because I can't put on a shoe...Yes, I'm smiling and laughing over that...What else do you do?...And I know little Rob is smiling saying "Who cares Aunt Jenny".

Until next time all my wonderful friends!!!~~hugs,Jen

So sorry to hear this Jen. How amazing that your brother was able to forgive so soon. Prayers are sent your way. I wish there was more I could do but I take great comfort in knowing that the God of peace has your whole family wrapped up in His loving arms.
