Now, I must tell you that I can't fathom WHY Tom purchased a new jack. We were trying to save money and we DID NOT need a new jack. We already had several. My husband didn't know we were going to need a new jack. But God knew. And even though Tom had no idea what was soon to come, the purchase he made was used to bless his family.
I can't tell you what a comfort that is. And there are so many others which come to mind.
We're reminded in John 14, "Let not your heart be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me." But it's hard to choose to not let our hearts be troubled. Difficult things happen. Storms of various kinds are experienced by all. Tragedies, such as those most recently, seem to come frequently.
But we reach for the hope...knowing He's really the One holding on to us. And we know that our great God works all things together for good... and that He leads His children along...EVEN WHEN WE DON'T KNOW IT'S HAPPENING. Like when purchasing a jack we don't *need.*
And finally, in summing up, we still want to keep alive Tom's memory in our hearts and minds. And we want to continue to honor the legacy he left of serving the Lord from a heart very grateful to God for all he'd been given and forgiven. And we desire to be faithful in telling to the generation to come the praises of the Lord. And of how He continues to lead His children along.
And once again, we are also very grateful for you all. For your prayers and kind expressions and for the gift of friendship and family.
God bless you!
The Lee Family

|Does anyone else out there love Eric Sloane books? I was reading a bit out of a new one I received in the mail today and a few of the sayings caught my interest and reminded me of a long ago prayer....|

|Of the three weddings we attended we were able to get a few pictures at only one of them.|
|I wish I had more pictures, but I do not. Many people dressed up and coffee was prepared and served back behind the house. There was also a lady nearby who washed the china the old-fashioned way and in a washtub under an outbuilding.|
|This spring we also enjoyed a visit from a dear and wise friend. We were so sorry his wife and little men had to stay behind in Ireland, but we heard many wonderful updates and were very encouraged by his visit and his many ideas for the farm.|
|And, of course, the girls loved the beautiful scarves...|
|and who can resist hot tea...|
|especially when there's chocolate to go with it...decisions, decisions.|
