My heart hurts for Lea this morning. Lea’s mom, Evelyn, passed away early this morning. While her death makes us sad, we’re also excited that she has obtained the goal for which she lived … eternal life with her Heavenly Father.
One of the many blessings that has come from marrying Lea has been getting to be a part of her wonderful family. I could not have asked for a better mother-in-law. Lea’s mom was as good as gold. She set a wonderful example to Lea and I of what a healthy marriage was supposed to look like. She loved her family, her husband and she especially loved her God. It was obvious to those who knew her, that her family was the apple of her eye and that God was the King of her life.
This weekend as we gather for Evelyn’s funeral service, I will have the honor to speak about her life… a life lived well. She’s made it easy for me because of the way she lived.

    What a paradox — that an event that hurts so much to the loved ones left behind is such a glorious event for the one going on to eternal life.

    I would like to extend my condolences to your family and Lea, in the loss of her mother. I lost my mother ten years ago, and I still miss her every day. (I can’t wait to see her again.)

    Praying for comfort and peace for you all.

    Abundant blessings to you all.

  39. TREY MORGAN says:

    Jeanne – I’m SO sorry about Lon. I passed on my sympathy on Lisa’s blog hoping you’d see it. I’m glad you stopped by today. I can’t even imagine the pain of loosing my spouse after 60 great years. I pray God’s peace in your life. :)

  41. Frank Bellizzi says:

    Trey, sorry I’m just now getting to this post.

    For the last three years, Michele and I have sat near Stan and Evelyn at worship. The quality of their character has always been obvious to us. They are easy to love.

    You did such a great job speaking at her funeral. And it was good getting to meet you (finally) afterwards. Blessings.

  • it's still early. :)
  • no worries. Luke is a very popular gospel during the Christmas season. 😜 #BabyJesusStory
  • Mitch Moreland has a combined 1.6 WAR since the start of 2011 at a premium position (DH/1B). That position needs to produce.
  • definitely don't disagree with that. We will miss his glove. But he had such a quiet bat for someone at first base.
  • I only disliked him when he was at the plate.
