January 10th, 2012

Hey friends,

 I hope you are all having a great start to 2012!

 I want to give a big thank you for those who have showed their support to FACES! This is far more than a project for me it is a true labor of love. I have had many inquiries as to when the first story will be going up. I am shooting for February 1st. Since posting the logo this past Sunday I am thrilled at the number of requests I have already received and I feel so blessed that I am going to be able to share these inspirational stories with you all. Please contact me if you or someone you know would like to share their story on FACES.

I have a couple of reasons for not posting the first story until February. First and foremost it gives me the opportunity to write a blog in honor of Nick as we approach the one year anniversary of his passing. I can hardly believe it. My heart is so heavy as I think about that day. Although, the vision of Nick eternally resting in the radiant light of his Saviour is comforting to me, I am still so sad. Plain and simply I miss him so much. I cannot help but think about Aaron graduating this year and how Nick used to just pray to be able to make it to see that day. I know he will be with us in spirit on that day, but I have to be honest there is that little selfish part of me that wants him in that seat beside me, holding my hand and sharing in that precious moment. I do know when that day gets here it will be full of so much joy and celebration and our hearts will be filled with happiness just the way Nick would want it. In fact, I think he would insist on it!

I will post a blog on January 29th that will include the tribute video that was played at Nick's memorial. I know that many friends near and far that could not make it to his service, would love to see it and it would be my joy to share it with you all. It will be my privilege to be able to write a blog about my man on the day the Lord called him home.

"Practice trusting Me during the quiet days, when nothing much seems to be happening. Then when storms come, your trust balance will be sufficient to see you through. Store up for yourself treasure in Heaven, through placing your trust in Me. This practice will keep you in my peace."--Jesus Calling Devotional

Much love and many blessings,
