Happy Father's Day :)

Hope you all had a wonderful day celebrating the dads in your lives :)! We sure enjoyed our day! As you can see, Jim is very loved by all of his peanuts (and by the lady behind the camera too :)!

Before we call it a night, I had to share some very exciting news with you all! I actually have been wanting to share it for the past several days, but we have been busy, busy, busy. Today is a great day to let you all know though since it is Father's Day and it's about Jim and Jim is a Father to many small little ones :). Are you ready??!!

Jim is getting called back to Pepper Pike!!! Woooo Hoooo! (sorry... a little excited here :)! He got a call last week from the Mayor, then the Chief, then a sergeant telling him the great news and he actually is already starting back tomorrow (Monday)! There were several things that happened and fell into place just perfectly for this to be happening now, but that will have to wait for another post. So tomorrow Jim will get his gun and badge back and will be back on the road, doing what he loves to do!

There are not words to tell you the excitement that we've had here and the sense of relief this brings us. For the first couple days after we found out, I had to keep pinching myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming. Thank you for praying for us and for him to be called back! What a roller coaster these last six weeks have been. One things for sure... God has provided for us amazingly through this time and we are just so thankful for how everything has worked out with this situation :). We will keep you posted on the levy and please continue to pray that it passes so more of the guys can be called back in August!

And one more thing... Would you please pray for some dear friends of ours whose little girl is having surgery tomorrow (Monday)? The little girl's name is Lucy. Please pray for God's protection on her little body and for everything to go perfectly. Thank you! We are praying for you Eckmans :)!!!

Praise the Lord! I'm so happy for Jim that he gets to go back to the job he loves.:) I'll keep the other guys in prayers too that they can get back on the job soon. Also saying prayers that little Lucy's surgery goes well and she has a speedy recovery. Thanks for the beautiful Father's Day picture. I love the look on Micah's face.:) God Bless!

I just love how you are rejoicing with Jim getting his job back, but still praying and asking for prayer for the other officers to get their jobs back as well. that is 100% your beautiful heart and that's is why I love having you in my life. No matter what you guys are going through, you have always thought of others. I love you all deeply. Keri
