Hey Buddy! WEEK SIX
I hope you had a descent 4th Of July. It sounds like you’re going to have another hard week. It is developing you into the AF man. That’s awesome! I know it seems like a never-ending process and you’re homesick.
Yesterday Trace and I went hiking up to the top of Stone Door. It’s July 4th and the temperature was 78 with not a lick of humidity. Awesome huh.. We’re postponing the wedding until October. We’re going to have a reception (worship/praise) at the church maybe. I’m hoping you can come home. I know you don’t know anything so we will just see if that will work.
Will you get to come home anytime between there and Colorado? You know there is a AFB in Tullahoma here.. We’re thinking about buying a house out that way in the country. Somewhere Grace can have animals and roam the wild. She needs nature! We were out in that area yesterday and God enlightened us on the benefits of that simple life and what being out on a “farm” would do for her. She needs rabbits and maybe a goat. A four-wheeler to ride around the fields. I think this town has a dark curse over the youth here. It’s one of the highest towns in the nation for teen suicide. That’s what our prayer leader said anyway. It makes sense! She can’t grow anymore here in this house and area. I would really like to have a couple of chickens too. lol
I love you so much buddy. I want you to know how proud I am of you. This time you’ve taken to plan your future was the best choice you could have made.
Our Father thank you for the life you trusted me with. Thank you for Mark and giving Chance a good earthy father. Somehow the balance of the of us has created a great son that is firm in his belief. I pray for your hand to be on his back pushing him forward during this last week. I pray in Jesus name that the Holy Spirit is more than abundantly present and he can rest knowing you gave your son for us. This is hard but it is nothing compared to what Jesus went through in order to save our souls. I pray dear Lord that when he feels the pain that you show him a vision of Jesus carrying the cross up to the hilltop. I pray in Jesus name that you place the sound “Because He Lives I Can Face Tomorrow” in his head and he will wake with that. Chance is a grateful child of yours and I pray that you protect him and give him more of the wisdom he has. I love you God, you’re a mighty awesome God.
In Jesus name I pray.. Sealing with a Amen.
I love you Chance. My plane lands Thursday evening. I’M SO EXCITED! I have to change planes in Dallas. I’m not afraid though. I’m not afraid of anything anymore! I have God with me…. SMILE!
I’ve decided to write you on Tuesdays.
I figure you’re adjusting to your schedule and expectations by now. Things are going fine here. We’re having a graduation party for Lindsey this weekend. I’ve been a busy bee trimming the hedges, searching for cob webs in the corners of the ceiling and tidying away clutter. You know how I clean to perfection. I’m trying to stay calm so that I can enjoy the moment and be myself.
Your sister and your little brother “Greyson” are existing, I wouldn’t call them living. You know how that ship sails! George wants me to tell you hello and he loves you. Trace is proud of you and knows you will excel in this field. From one geek to another!
I’m connecting to Jesus and God now and here is your prayer..
Dear Heavenly Father,
I want to thank you Lord for Chance. I pray that he stands true to his faith and has the courage to stand strong when challenged. I pray that when he’s stretched and feels he can’t go on one more second that you show him Jesus on the cross. I can do anything physically when I see this through your eyes. Bless Chance with that ability to see with your vision. I pray that when he is hungry and the meal hasn’t completely satisfied his hunger that he can distinguish between the physical and mental hunger. Dear Lord as his mother I pray for you to keep him warm at night with your spirit and comforted when he feels broken. I pray that Chance will seek your face at the beginning of his day so that he can wear you making him better ready for anything that comes his way. I ask the Holy Spirit to control his thinking and renew his mind. Cloth him with your precious, unconditional glorious love.
Sealed with a Amen XX
I learned that I had to stop praying to God and pray with him. As I develop my intimacy with him my prayers become more fluent. Sometimes I don’t even know where my words come from. I think a spirit takes over and prays through me. lol
I just read The 1st Core Value of an airman. Wow, that sums you up in a nutshell. I have so much pride in you son.
I love you and miss you.. I miss not being able to text you that when I want.
Fat, Sick And Nearly Dead Commercial Movie Promo
I was chose out of 12 amazing people in the US to fly to NYC and be in a commercial for Mr. Joe Cross. It was an honor and something I never in a million years thought I could ever do. This shows how much growth I’ve made since I discovered juicing and found my new life. I had never been on a plane, never to NYC and never alone traveling. I get great satisfaction knowing that the man who beat me down is in prison. I became someone and you became a prisoner. I felt like I was able to prove to my family back home once and for all I was successful and I am important to a lot of people.

I was blessed to have lunch with my nephew today. He is the most loving young man I’ve ever known. His love is pure, innocent and genuine. He has down syndrome.. I roll around in self pity of my children’s problems and then I spend the day with him. He is challenged but simple. There are no puzzles and mysteries with him. You get what you see, he is refreshing. A ray of sunshine for such a hard gloomy week I’ve had.
They’re all so special and a true blessing.
Thank you for my life, my children, my man and my French Bulldog. Thank you for letting me live today.
