A very good Thanksgiving!

My Thanksgiving was GREAT!!!! I had so much fun with my family yesterday. I'll blog about it when I have time. I have to leave for work.

My mom sent me this email yesterday, she is sooooo very funny. I was happy she told me about the letter from my nephew.

Hi Lori

I know you will want to hear this. I guess you and I are the most alike when it comes to feelings, well looks too, oh gee size too. Okay we are pretty good aren't we!

Sorry I got carried away. LOL

I received a letter from our boy yes Jeremy! I love to get mail from him. He is upset about Terra and if the baby is born yet, if they are okay. He misses his kids and Terra.

He is worried about Christmas and being able to come, he will be able to be out at night if he is working. That is a good thing. Gee can we put him to work on Christmas :o)

You will love to hear this part I was amazed, he can't wait to get back in church, TO SING the HYMNS.

He said he sings loudly AMAZING LOVE HOW CAN IT BE, you know the rest, it is a beautiful song and he is singing it. He said it is stuck in his head. How awesome, how very awesome!

I am so Thankful God has pulled him out of the life he was living, and give him the real reason to live.

He always signs it Love your grandson that touches my heart so much. All those Christmas's I would stop and answer his way out questions about the Bible and Jesus that I know everyone would get upset with me for listening and answering him. Praise the Lord for the little seeds, that went from me, to his Aunt Lori planting many more seeds. And GOD gave the increase.

God is so good, I am so Thankful I received that letter today. On the eve of Thanksgiving a miracle of a young man that I just am amazed at how much God has changed and he needs Prayer for strength as he steps out into life again to face the world.

I love you my dear daughter. I just had to share!

Love
MOM

As soon as my nephew gets out of jail, I'll show him my blog. I do write to him about it. I don't think he will mind.

Hi Lori -- That news of Jeremy sounds so good! Can he tell that people are praying for him?
I don't think I know what he can do for work? We can pray about that also.
