2nd Annual PDJ “Let ‘Em Have It” Shootout

We had the shootout yesterday and it was a success.  Several competitors, lots of friends & some good food made it a great day.

As people were eating and visiting, I heard Peyton’s name brought up several times.  Makes me smile.  I am thankful Peyton’s friends are comfortable talking about him.  During these (almost) 4 years, I hope Tom & I have conveyed the fact that leaving this earth does not mean the end.  It is the next step of our eternal journey.   It is so important to talk about people who have gone to Heaven before us.  They are part of our past, but more importantly they are in our future.

On a side note:  God is in the details.

A few days ago, I was thinking about the pictures I wanted to take at the shootout.  I wanted one of all the cars parked in front of the house.  I then thought about how difficult it is to take pictures and visit with everyone.  God provided the answer to my dilemma and He fulfilled it with excellence.  I did take a few pictures, but Jake took the majority of them and he did an exceptional job, including the one of the front of the house …….that I didn’t even ask for……God is good like that.

I love how God is in the details. Always always!

What a blessing to fellowship with Peyton's friends and honor his memory with togetherness.

Much love,

I think that is so awesome! Every once in a while, I will run into one of Blake's old friends. They try so hard not to talk about him. That's the thing. I want them to.
