Love

A couple posts down I introduced many of you to a remarkable young woman named Ashley. This morning Ashley went peacefully to be home with Jesus, surrounded by family. Please keep her family and loved ones in your prayers. Ashley's Caring Bridge

At the request of Ashley's dad, Ron, please hug your kids and tell them you love them. You can never say it enough, it's so easy to take for granted the people we love. They need to be reminded constantly of our love for them. And because I cannot post without a photo, here are a few recent ones of my three greatest loves. I just ordered a 20x30 gallery wrapped canvas of the outdoor one!
