Grimm boys Veterans Day salute

The kids learned about Veterans Day this week. At home one night the boys performed a "Veterans Day salute" program for us. Pretty creative I would say. 

Enjoy! 😄

Goodbye Plattners

Tonight we said goodbye to some of our very best friends, Kurt and Joan Plattner, and their family. As they move on to Haiti to serve God there, we couldn't help but think how great God is and how He provides no matter what our situation. When we got home, many tears were shed by all of us. Then Buzz went and got 6 stuffed animals. He said now when he gets sad and misses the Plattners, he can just hug them all at once.

Though many miles will separate us, we take comfort that being in the Lord's will is what each of us want. 

Plattners, God bless you! We will miss you all.

Buzz comment

Our son Andrew last night after leaving the very warm nursing home:  "I'm so hot, I feel like I'm going to pass away!"

Of such is the kingdom of "God"

Watching the boys read Bible stories aloud before bed each night reminds me to count my blessings and pray their "love will not diminish".

Mike's Birthday

Spent this years birthday fighting a stomach bug, but thanks everyone for the birthday wishes!

The photo on this post shows one of two things:

1.  My family really loves me.


2.  They are trying to kill me off. :)

Got back from Haiti last Saturday night.  An amazing experience.  As much as we tried to help and train the LSM vehicle repair staff, they helped us realize the Haitian perspective of complete trust, love, and faith in Jesus Christ, with absolutely zero earthly possessions.  Words cannot explain how little, and yet how much, the Haitian people have.  Part of our heart was left there, no doubt about it.
