She even got her face painted with a pumpkin on one side and a heart on the other!!
We had a wonderful service Sunday morning, Lowell and Deanne just have a wonderful spirit about them and you can just tell how much they love the Lord and how they want to honor and worship Him!! It was a wonderful service!!
You will have to ask Tommy how his ride home was?? I drove and Chase sat in the front with me (she slept the whole way home) and Tommy rode in the back with his feet propped up the whole way home...while I rubbed them for the two and half hour ride...that's right!! Over two hours I rubbed his feet...how good a wife am I??
I can't believe I forgot to mention that Deanne made Tommy a special sandwich while we were visiting...one that she made him when he was little, a peanut butter, onion, and pickle sandwich!! Yes...you read that right...Tommy loves it still to this day!!

We missed Chase so much...as a matter of fact I had a hard time sleeping Friday night, when they left it was raining and just not knowing whether they arrived safely or not kept me awake. I know for the future to have someone call me when they have arrived and are safe and sound!! Tommy and I did have a good time though...We did alittle eating out, some window shopping, and we came home and watched a movie!! All in all it was a good weekend!! I hope Chase had as much fun as we did!! I am sure she did :)

I still miss her everyday!! I wrote an article on the first anniversary of her death and published it in the Newnan paper. I wrote another little piece on the 10th anniversary of her death as well, I have had it on my myspace page, but I have been thinking alot about Nan today and I wanted to post it here on our blog page.
This is the article:
June 29th was the 10th anniversary of the death of Nan Fleming Wallace. She was a dear friend and I still miss her. After the first anniversary of her death, I wrote an article about her and put it in the Newnan paper. I now live in Wake Forest , North Carolina but I wanted to do that again for this anniversary. I tried for a long time to make something sound right – make it sound worth putting in the paper to memorialize her. I soon realized that nothing I could write could truly do justice to her memory but I had to try anyway.
Nan was a precious friend; she was my best friend – the best of the best. The past 10 years have been empty without her. Not a day goes by that I don't still think of her in some way or another. When someone says, "This tastes awful, here try it" or "This smells horrible, here smell it", my daughter, Chase, and I laugh about it all the time remembering that it was her who first pointed out the absurdity of those statements. Even though Chase was only two when Nan died, she knows Nan through my eyes because I talk about her and laugh about things we did. Nan 's memories live on in my cherished stories that I share still to this day with those who are dear to me.
Although Nan is gone from this earth, she has never left my heart or my mind. I suspect other people have many similar fond memories of her. To those of you who knew her, take some time today to honor her memory: think about this wonderful woman who loved the Lord, loved her family and loved her friends and share your memories with others. It has been 10 years since she left us but part of her never will.
I love you and miss you so much Nan!!

Matthew and Sarah have our oldest granddaughter Hannah who is 5 years old and in Kindergarten, she is as smart as she is beautiful!! And lastly, but certainly not least they are parents to our youngest grandson Kaleb Matthew, he is also one year old and the image of his daddy, and I think is going to be just as mischievous too!! (heehee). All five of them are so special to us. We can't even begin to explain the joy we have experienced in becoming grandparents. Everytime one of them says Granddaddy or Mimi, we just melt!! Although we have not been able to be as hands on as we would like to be, we intend to change that as soon as possible. Chase is now 12 years old and is still the joy of our life!! She is in 7th grade and loves school as well as many extra-curricular activities. She would be lost without her cellphone and her laptop, but Chase's real passion right now is Roots and Shoots club!! GO GREEN!! RECYCLE!! Those are her themes!!
Now that you know alittle about our family I will get to the purpose of this site. As many of you may know over 2 years ago Tommy and I sold our dream house in Newnan, GA to follow God's leading into full time ministry. We moved to Wake Forest, NC for Tommy to attend college at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Tommy has worked hard and is doing very well in school. He is set to graduate in December 2008. Now really we should have started this blog 2 years ago, so that we could keep our friends and family updated on how we are doing here in Wake Forest, but we didn't, but God is not finished with us yet and we still have lots of things ahead of us once Tommy graduates. So we will be keeping you updated from this point forward. Please keep us in your prayers as we begin to send out Tommy's resume. We know the Lord has already picked out the place He would have us to minister and serve Him, we just have to prayerfully seek His guidance, so please keep us in your prayers. I will be updating as regularly as I can. We will post new pictures of Chase and our grandkids and Tommy's graduation and we will also put up prayer request. Thanks for reading and we hope you will keep coming back to follow our journey with our Awesome God!!!
