Places In The Heart

Good morning. I hope that your Thanksgiving was wonderful a great time was had with family and friends. We have traveled and traveled... and are bone weary. Tired physically and emotionally. We loved spending time with family at the ranch and in College Station. It was a blessing. Sid's Mom is very ill and in the hospital and will probably go to heaven soon. It was a sad but blessed time being with her and with Sid's brother Bill and sister Becky and their families. We would appreciate your prayers for JoAnn and especially for Daddy Bob. It is hard to imagine your world without the people that have been so constant in our lives. Our parents are so woven into our hearts. It is hard to picture life without them. I am so thankful that we share life in Jesus and His saving grace and promise of eternity with Him. Not only with Him but those we love. Comforting and exciting. Thank you God for this promise.

Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
John 14:27

Here are a few (a lot) of pictures of our Thanksgiving week travels. Blessings.

I love these guys.
We always take a Christmas picture for DaddyBob to send out for the holidays. This year we were without Mama Jo. It was not easy. We missed her.
Becky's family. Precious.

The girls.
Beautiful girls.

Bill and family.
The tallest and the smallest. So sweet.
The grandkids.
Have you ever seen cuter kids?

Deer welcome...
Thanksgiving meal at the Ranch. No turkey. Steak and potatoes.
DaddyBurl's cows.
Leaves were nice.
There is a part of the ranch that was burned very badly a few years ago. Underneath the dead oak trees is alot of new growth. So comforting that even though something is harmed and looks dead ( or is dead) that it can still have beauty around it and new growth can be seen against the darkness. Thankful that God does this with us too.

I am so sorry to hear about JoAnn. I will keep her and the whole family in my prayers. I have fond memories of Dr. and Mrs. Walker from my A&M days. Sweet family!!!
