God Bless you, Christopher as you learn to listen to His voice.

Know His passionate love for you, His grace and mercy, His goodness in the difficulties.

He perfectly chose you to be the oldest child of this crew.

I cannot wait to see what the future holds for you.

You are growing fruit and its a beautiful thing to this mom.

love you!

"see ya!"  thanks for sharing your light at Lurie!

    Dear Jones family,
    It was so exciting to see you all at church this morning. There are so many reasons to praise the Lord. Christopher, “Happy Birthday.” Does this mean you will soon be getting your driver’s license? Wow!! Lainee, it was such a wonderful miracle to see you with your family at church! God is good, all the time!! We will continue to pray for all of you as you wait for the results of medical tests and hear about what treatment is best for Lainee. “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness.” (Lamentations 3:22-23)
    In His unfailing and gracious love,
    Mr. and Mrs. Burgess

    Wow! What an amazing week for you! Happy 16th to your Christopher! Many happy, healthy blessings to your dear Lainee. I am so very glad she’s home with you, and able to be out truly living life with adventure. God bless you all.
    In Joy,
    Felicita
