Please Pray for the Drews family

Marsha and David have had to face one of the most difficult things a parent can face. Their sweet little guy 'Dozer' as he was known or Christian went up to heaven Tuesday. Please wrap this family up in you prayers, they have 2 young boys that are also going to be missing the youngest. May they find comfort in their memories of sweet Dozer and be able to rejoice that he is with our Heavenly Father.
There is a tribute to Christian on The Heart of the Matter, which is how I am acquainted with the family. This has had me in tears today-I just can't imagine-I don't want to imagine losing a child. Yet we never know when we will be called home...and what a home it will be!

The view

One of my favorite things about where we live is the water. I tried to capture the beauty but this was breakfast time and the sun was too bright for the camera. But this is one of the many parts of Hawaii I will miss! To be working in the kitchen or vacuuming the floor and look up to see the blue blue water is just so wonderful!! We are so blessed in the time we've had here.

First is silly face boy.

I'm sure you realize how much my children love trees. All trees seem to call out to them 'come climb me'(Which reminds me of this book called The Giving Tree-if you haven't read it you should!) Anyway so #2 found out why it isn't a good idea to climb on a broken branch. She wasn't too far off the ground when it broke all the way off but she is very scrapped up.Ouch!!

This was what #4 was up to yesterday. He was saying set, go and then running and tackling the computer chair. It reminded me of football practice! The irony is I don't think he's ever seen football. But he's a tough little guy trying to keep up with everyone anyway so maybe he'll be a rough and tumble player.
