12,000

I am excited to share with you all that over $12,000 has now been raised for the construction of Isaac's playground. Thank you...

I think I said this when I shared that we hit the $11,000 mark, but I'll say it again:

Your generosity (as well as your words, prayers, comments, e-mails) continues to communicate to us how our sweet Isaac matters... that is the greatest gift. To know that my son's life has value, weight, and significance, even though it was far shorter than I had ever hoped or prayed it would be... and that his legacy is leaving a mark on this world. I am humbled... and am so grateful.

Thank you so much for your generosity and continued support. We're still months away from the playground being constructed (because our new church facility is still being built), but when the time comes, I can't wait to share pictures with you.

And, I am still waiting to share the news of something else that Spencer and I are excited about that's in the works to share Isaac's life with others. Continue to stay tuned...
