Happy Family;Happy Wife-Gee I Have a Happy Life!

Updated on November 8, 2014

In 2007, Greg's 23 month old Grandson was killed. At that point, he found a need to write about his family, crime, and local issues.

Many a prayer has been offered for my family and me. Every time I look at one of my family members now I see a smile.

For the last 3 years we have lived a life of depression and wondering what "bad" happening would be next.

I watched as our 23 month old grandson, Jonathan, was laid to rest at Mt Rose cemetery in Lebanon, Missouri.

I screamed as the Laclede county prosecutor did nothing for justice for Jonathan.

I came very close to "losing my mind" as the statute of limitations ran out on all charges but murder.

I then broke when I was called and rushed home to find our home and belongings burning.

I know many, many people were praying for us. I too prayed; I fell on my knees and prayed and prayed and prayed.

I wondered, did my enemies burn our house down? As the Fire Marshall explained how the coffee pot had done it and I realized only one of my enemies did it-Satan.

God turned it all around as He can and will as long as we trust in Him.

We now have a new home in a new community.

We are away from the depressive atmosphere of Lebanon, Missouri.

We are near our new Granddaughter, Peyton Marie.


I visited a church Sunday and felt right at home. Here is a video clip of Morning Star Church's worship leaders song along with a link to their website.

Below that are pictures of happy.

Thank you all for your prayers-I am so happy now, I am crying. Thank you!

      This was a beautiful hub and I was touched as I read it. I'm so glad things are better for you now and your beautiful family.I also empathise with you for your loss.. When times get bleak we must stay strong because there is always light trying to shine through even if at times we have to look a little harder to see it. Take care and God bless.

      I didn't know all of these details but I thank you for sharing. I pray that God will continue to bless you and your family and restore what the locust have eaten, as he did for Job. Your faithfulness has stood the test and is a blazing testimony of your faith & His unfailing goodness.

      Pray many more blessings for you. Psalmist4M
