makin’ a list

12 Oct

how do I feel?





I still have some big things happening before I head to the airport at 12:30in the after noon tomorrow.

1.  Christopher’s conference meet (away )

2.  Jonah’s race

So doing all of that adds to my anxiety!


Each of my kids has a “locker” in our mudroom, 7 of them.

Last night it dawned on me, “what Locker will Luke share?”

No one seemed very excited to give up half of their locker, and I don’t blame them, they have a lot of gear!

It was so sweet.  Lainee and Zinnia decided on their own that they would now share a locker.


When it was all settled and decided they jumped up and down so excited about it!

Thank you, Lord.

Needless to say, Luke’s locker is ready for him.

All the children have been told that Luke might feel sad at times, Noah is so sweet, he will be great in the same room as Luke.

Zinnia has made a list for us!

zinnia’s list. She is precious.

We will be sure we have all those people in the van as we leave the airport tomorrow!  Thank you, Zinnia!  You are so helpful ;)

Jesus Jones!

God Jones!

Thank you for your presence, Lord.

For the reminder that you are right here with us.

    Could I “Please”, be Jo Jones? ; ) What a precious list, from an even more precious girl!
    Praying for Luke and Dad Jones on this last leg of their journey to Home. And, will pray for Mama Jones, as she prepares her heart and home for another son. Isn’t God Jones Good?!!
