The Shaw's

These kids are sooo cute! Ornery too, as I'm sure you'll figure out on your own. Thanks, Annie for letting me get some of my creative juices out of my system!

August 10, 2008 Jeremy and I dedicated our children to God. This is by no means taking place of their salvation, just a solemn vow to raise them in an environment ripe with God's love, His Word, and His commandments. We were so blessed to be supported by grandparents, aunts, and cousins who have promised to pray a hedge around them. We'd love to have your prayers also!

Patsy Rae Graff born January 28, 1940, passed to her home in Heaven August 2, 2008. She is survived by her husband Robert, 10 children, 19 grandchildren, and 2 great-grand children. She was proceeded in death by one child, Jamie.

Her children quoted from 1 Corinthians 13 how she loved everyone unconditionally, from Ephesians about the fruits of the spirit, and how she lived everyone of them, and from Proverbs 31 how her children would rise up and call her blessed, how she always took care of her household, and multitudes of others who found themselves at her door. The theme of the day, was, in the end, what will you be remembered for? Her's was a life liven for God, every day, no exceptions. We all knew we were loved and prayed for by her every day.

Bella was not a planned child, but God's ways are above our ways, He knew my little girl would bring smiles and joy to us in our time of sorrow. Nana, I miss you, and am so glad Bella got to meet you! I'll raise her to know the same God you served and we'll see you in Heaven one day.
