This is why we keep trying even after almost 3 years of waiting.

Jeremy Riddle - Sweetly Broken
From the album Sweetly Broken
To the cross I look, to the cross I cling
Of its suffering I do drink
Of its work I do sing
For on it my Savior both bruised and crushed
Showed that God is love
And God is just
At the cross You beckon me
You draw me gently to my knees, and I am
Lost for words, so lost in love,
I'm sweetly broken, wholly surrendered
What a priceless gift, undeserved life
Have I been given
Through Christ crucified
You've called me out of death
You've called me into life
And I was under Your wrath
Now through the cross I'm reconciled
In awe of the cross I must confess
How wondrous Your redeeming love and
How great is Your faithfulness
I am amazed at how when I lose my focus, Christ will "draw me gently to my knees." I long to be "wholly surrendered."

This past Sunday Wesley's granddaddy went to be with the Lord. He will be missed by so many who love him. His funeral was so sweet. Everyone kept remembering fun stories from their childhood. Like the time Robert took Joe and Billy to cut a Christmas tree and when they got their they realized that they didn't bring a saw. Robert whittled the tree down with his pocket knife. He was a good daddy and husband to Katie Mae. He was a daddy of 2, granddaddy to 7 and great-granddaddy to 13. We was born, raised, lived, died and was buried in Lewisburg, TN. At the visitation as everyone was leaving, Reed stopped and waved and said bye-bye great-granddaddy. We look forward to the day when we will meet again.

I said, "We gave you a lightsaber for Christmas. Why don't you ever play with that? It's what you wanted the most." (It's really cool. It's spring loaded, lights up and makes sounds.)
He said, "Well, I played with it on Friday. Is it Friday now?"
We were short a few family members this year at our Christmas gathering. Those who couldn't be here were really missed. We love you guys. I won't give details but please keep one in your prayers and let him know you are thinking about him.
When the Texas Thompson's arrived they didn't even come in the house before they hit the trampoline. The backyard was suddenly full of activity and excitement.
The cousins sure do have fun together.
