Another "List" Day

I am grateful for:
My husband
My church family
A great place to work
My home
Colorado friends
The "firsts" are almost over.
Tom & I were good parents
We have no regrets.
Peyton was a blessing to us. (He drove me crazy, he kept me on my toes at all times)
The Peyton Jackson Memorial Scholarship
The Peyton Jackson Memorial Baseball Tournament

God has a plan, He has not left us
I will hear His plan for me
It is a glorious plan
Greater is He who is in me, than he who is in the world
We will not be defeated
I know my enemy and I know he is a liar
People are praying for us
I can pray for others

It took longer than usual to come up with a list. I was feeling alone but I know God is with me.

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." Deut 31:6

The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." Deut 31:8

You two mean the world to me. Peyton is always on my mind. Thinking about him, and all the memories we have is more of a joyful and happy feeling, rather than a hurt like it use to be. I still think of him everytime I hear a Chris Ledoux song or see a deer and how he would get so excited and say "If its brown, its down!!" He was such a joy to have in my life. And even though it will never be the same, I know that he's always going to be here with us. Maybe not physically but spiritually. I'll always remember him and how hes made a huge impact on my life. He had two of the best parents out there. I love you and Tom more than anything.

Love, Kayli.
