There are a mixture of emotions floating around here this morning as we pack and rush off to Louisiana. Yesterday afternoon while discussing some youth ideas for our internship at our church Expresso recieved a call, a call that would change our plans and our hearts, his Ma Maw, 93 years of age passed away early that morning. It was a strange moment... a moment of emotional confusion, JOY and sadness intermingling. She was a woman of the faith, an inspiration in her convictions and we know that she is finally home and we also know that she was ready to go home. She was confined to her home and not able to do much for herself.

This morning we prepare our car and suitcases for the trip and our minds and our hearts for the rush of emotions that will swarm us as we pull into to her driveway and enter her home. Pray for us if you don't mind, for the presence of a strong beautiful women of the Lord is now absent from us... we will miss her deeply, she has made a lasting impression on our hearts and our lives but we are overflowing with joy that she is at peace with her Father.

Eli and Bebe an inseperable pair. I am so glad that he will always have memories of her to carry with him.

JOYfully in Him,
