Twenty-eight years ago, all contact with this family was broken.
And now, thanks to prayer, faith, hope, and an amazing God that works in our hearts, Tim was able to re-connect with the Johnsons. And I was able to meet the family that I had heard so much about for so many years.
Alan and Linda Johnson; Tim.
Out of a family of 7, (4 girls and 3 boys) we got to see/meet all the girls and their families.
Ferlin and Donna Beth, Natalie, Tanner, Lacey.
Elliot and Sherry Kirk, Summer, and Skyler. What an amazing miracle Sherry's life is, and what an example of God making beauty from ashes.
Steve and Lois Bullard and their 4 kids: Sterling, Stetson, Jessica, and Shaelyn.
David and Brenda Bullard with their 2 kids: Wyatt and Miranda.
Alan with his 4 girls: Donna Beth, Sherry, Lois, Brenda.
We had such a lovely day. Wonderful visiting and catching up, yummy food, gorgeous weather, lots of laughing, and lots of this:
Tim and Sherri; Ferlin and Donna Beth.
Donna Beth and me. I so enjoyed meeting her and getting to spend time together.
Our time at the Johnsons was good; it brought closure and healing for more than one person. We are looking forward to keeping in touch.
God is good....all the time. He is bigger than any problem we might have, any hurt, any wound. His mercies are new every morning, He brings joy from tragedy, and He makes beauty out of ashes. All of this brings hope.
