Update: Sep 4, 2013

Today is Lisa and my 25th Wedding anniversary. [And no, this isn’t a not-so-subtle troll for compliments!]

But I’m trying to take some of the day off and spend it with her. [She’s napping, right this second, so you’re not “robbing” her, and I’m not guilty either. (At least not guilty for that, anyway.)]

But I think of the many years my parents had together up to this point, and the uncertainty about the future, and I genuinely feel for my mom.

It’s been hard for her to contemplate a life alone if Dad never comes home and I really understand that desire to have someone to share your life with.

So, I guess I’ll just say that my heart goes out to my mom, and I hope that she continues to gain strength and hope – that I understand, at least a little, how hard it must be. And I know that many of the rest of you also want her to know how much you care.

…and I must say, [without this mention excluding any other group] that the people at her “Sunday” church where she plays [Englewood Christian Church] have been incredible! Yes, incredible!

Wow, are you folks awesome or what!?

She’s mentioned how wonderfully caring, loving and enveloping you have been, especially the last few weeks.

Whatever you’re doing, keep doing it! It’s been wonderful to see. Thanks!

I don’t have a story thought out for this post – and doing one will take a lot longer than the nap is scheduled to last – so you’ll simply have to do without.

I do have one other piece of business:

I know some check the site regularly for updates, but others of you want to know when we know anything more, but don’t get a chance to check as regularly.

What I’d like to ask you to do is to submit your email address to the list-serv.

The list-serv works like this…
When I have an update, or a new post, or some other piece of news we’d like you to hear, I’ll post a notice on the list-serv. If you have subscribed, and have given us your email – you’ll get that notice delivered to your email box.

Then I can include the update, either in the email itself, or send a link you can follow to the blog.

But this allows us to “push” an update to you, rather than having to check the site all the time … and if you forget, you miss something.

So, please, sign up by following this link and giving us your email address. We won’t share your address with anyone else and you can unsubscribe at any time.

Subscribe here:  http://www.sloop.net/mailman/listinfo/jrs-search_sloop.net

Once you subscribe on the web-page, you’ll get an email asking for confirmation. That’s “normal.” Simply click the link in the email you get, to confirm your subscription, and you’ll be all set. [If you don’t confirm, however, you won’t be subscribed and won’t get the updates via email. It’s a two-step process.]

    Happy Anniversary! It’s good to hear from you. I’m assuming there’s been no news or updates from Kiev, since you didn’t mention anything. We all just keep praying!

    We have so enjoyed the family music and especially the organ which we missed for awhile. Thankyou so much. You;ve been an inspiration to all of us and we love you and continue praying for Jay and for each of you. You’re not forgotten.
    Thanks so much, Greg, for setting up the email listing. Somehow it helps me keep focused in my prayers to have a place to check even if it hasn’t changed. And, Happy Anniversary! A time of joy and celebration of God’s foresight in creating love and marriage for us!

    I have been a silent follower of this site. I still do not have the words to tell you how I wish this wasn’t so. I do keep your family in my prayers. God knows…

    No, you’re right – there isn’t any new news from the Ukraine. I guess I wasn’t thinking, or I’d have done that in the post.
