  • EPHESIANS 2:8-10
    For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. NIV
  • 2 THESSALONIANS 2:16-17
    May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. NIV
    Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
  • 2 TIMOTHY 1:9-10
    ...who has saved us and called us to a holy life-not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. NIV
  • 2 TIMOTHY 2:1
    You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. NIV
  • ROMANS 11:6
    And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace. NIV
  • 2 CORINTHIANS 12:9
    But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. NIV

Hey!!! Glad to get the update. Rejoicing that you could see many friends and share with those who understand your losses.

WHERE is the Egg Harbor Restaurant? Is there one near here? I went to one in Oakbrook once. I liked it. But I didn't know there were "other" Egg Harbors!!!!

Welcome back from your trip adventures.

God Bless.




There are Egg Harbors in Arlington Heights, Wheaton and in Geneava.

I'm going to talk about my week on my blog too because I'm too exhausted to think about anything else.

Thanks again for letting Matthew & I stay at Linda's Bed & Breakfast ;)!! We didn't leave the memorial service until after midnight so we got to the motel about the same time you got home. And then I drove 10 hrs. the next day, dropped Matthew off at home and went to straight to my overnight trip. Did I mention I'm exhausted :)???


come on...did you really think you could get out of a Marsch/Summy/Weddle group at Northside any earlier? :) Seriously... thank you for coming and staying long enough for me to get to visit with you all a little bit!


You're right, Sue.
I should've known!
I mean, how many times did our family members stand around the lobby or parking lot waiting for certain other family members to stop talking! :)
