Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

APRIL 2004

...i was going through some drawers the other day and came across a spiral index card notebook

i guess that i had thrown it in a drawer thinking that someday tim or the girls would enjoy looking through it and reading it. it was written over a period of about two months or so and pretty much was a brief summary of tim's daily devotional broken down into a few sentences that he left EACH morning for the kids to read before school.

now keep in mind that this was written in 2004 which was the year BEFORE he got sick and the kids would have been like 11 and 13.

here are some samples of the pages:

*Good Morning

He was a great husband and father. I can hear Tim as I read those entries. He is truly missed by all who loved him. I know we are not to question why...but it is very hard. Cherish your memories. He was right, he has 4 great gals. Your always in my prayers.
