this is day five and six in the series "31 days of honest effort
(click the link to read all posts in the series) 

yes, i'm aware that today is october 7TH so i should technically have my seventh post up for the 31 days series. although i'm just now posting days 5 and 6.... but it's monday, we had a busy weekend, and i'm trying my best to catch up. the plan is to post days 7 and 8 tomorrow and then i'll be back on track (at least until the next time i fall behind) ;-)

this weekend we participated in the alzheimer's walk to remember. we walked in memory of grandad who went home to be with Jesus last june. we wore our "walking for wallace" shirts as we proudly walked to help find a cure for this disease that effects so many.

we walked with a promise of hope - knowing that we will see grandad again. and praise God, when that day comes - he will be healed and healthy. 

even though alzheimer's may have taken over his mind and his body, we find joy in knowing that it could not overtake his heart. a heart that was so full of the love of Jesus there was no way it could be overshadowed by this disease. 
for the second year in a row, we joined together with our family and friends to honor grandad. 
it's amazing how much can change in just one short year....
this weekend was a wonderful reminder of how fleeting life is. and how important it is to make memories with those we love so that our legacy can carry on. 
"Even when you are old I will be the same. And even when your hair turns white, I will help you. I will take care of what I have made. I will carry you, and will save you."
Isaiah 46:4
