Sundays in October in Tennessee

Not much is prettier than a Sunday in October in Tennessee. We returned from Florida yesterday after a much needed Fall-Break. It has been quite some time since I posted anything on the blog so I just wanted to post a quick note. I hope everyone is doing well. Back to work and school for us tomorrow. Until next time....

Houston's 13th Birthday! Happy Birthday HUEY!

Today is Houston's 13th Birthday! He has finally made it to his teenage years. I will post pictures later, but I wanted to share Huey's special day with everyone. Kids are out of school today and I made sure they were up before leaving this morning. (Just kidding). Hope everyone is doing well. HAPPY BIRTHDAY HOUSTON! WE ARE PROUD OF YOU! Trying to keep warm and always praying, Clancy

Hello everyone! I have not posted since last year, but with the holidays and kids being out of school, a lot has been going on. We did survive the holidays and it has been a roller coaster ride. We were able to get away for a few days and visit my Dad and Sandy in Florida. Although it was not warm enough to swim, we did have good weather all but one day (cold). It was nice to get a change of scenery for a few days and we all had a great time! We thank everyone for the wonderful Christmas cards and gifts! We hope everyone had a safe and Merry Christmas and New Year's. Thanks as always for the prayers, comments and uplifting words. Please keep Raymond Powell and his family in your prayers. Raymond went home from the hospital today and is waiting on a report from his doctor later in the week. Also, please keep the Broome/Miller family in your thoughts and prayers as they have a loved one in the hospital at present. I will write again soon and try to remember that the God that brought you to it will be the God that brings you through it! Keep moving along too Zman. Love to all! Clancy

Sunday, December 14, 2008 in the Evening

Good evening all. We hope that everyone is having a restful and warm weekend. Not much going on around here. As you can see from the picture, Christie created our Christmas card, so I decided to scan it and post it to the web.
The boys are doing well and it is hectic around here. Houston's last day of exams is tomorrow and the
last day for school before Christmas is Thursday. Christie is also trying to wrap up things at school before the end of the week.
We are planning on going to visit my Dad and Stepmother in Florida at the end of the week. We need to get out of here and get our minds off of things...if it is possible. I doubt that our minds will be put at ease, but the change of scenery will be good for us as a family.
Although Christmas is quickly approaching, I can honestly say that the spirit of the season is largely overshadowed. It is difficult to know that we will not be able to see Zander's smiling little face as he tears into his first present or wear his Christmas outfit. We are truly thankful for what we have in terms of family and friends, but a huge void will always exist in our lives and in the lives of the people that Zander touched. In time, I hope and pray that understanding and peace will set in.
As our pastor spoke about this morning, Christmas is not about presents, food or any of the other festivities. It is about the one gift that we were all given some 2008 years ago when our Savior was born and laid in a manger. A gift that through faith assures me and Christie that we will see our beautiful baby boy once again.
We love you boys. Rest easy.
Struggling but still pursuing His grace,

Good morning all. It has been a while since I last posted and I am sorry for the delay. It is difficult to explain my hesitancy in writing, but everywhere Christie and I turn at this point and taking into account the holiday season, reminders of Zander are present. It is not fun and I do not wish it on anyone; however, we are hanging in there. Houston and Jackson are doing well and growing with anticipation concerning Christmas. We put up the Christmas tree this weekend and Zander's ornaments are on the tree with the boys'. He is with us...we know it, but selfishly, we wish here were here physically with us. Please keep Ethan, Raymond Powell and Dr. Swingle in your prayers. At last report all are doing well, but prayer is still needed for them. Dr. Swingle is back in Arkansas for another round of treatment and strength through the journey is needed for him. Thanks to everyone for the prayers and love during this time. We still need it. We know God is with us, but it is difficult to see at times. God led us here and he will lead us out in His way and on His time. Keep moving along boys. We love all three of you. Clancy
