Jordan's thoughts from last night

Maggie Stinziano, wife of Jordan, and young mother of Sophie, Jack, Jonas, and Owen is very close to meeting her sweet Savior.
Maggie has battled cancer for the past three years, and her days, maybe even her hours are running short.
Since the time that she was diagnosed, she stood strong in the belief that God's grace is sufficient for her, and that His mercies are new every morning. She has been the most wonderful reflection of God's heart to all she has come in contact with, or who have heard her story.
As she is drawing close to our Lord, please pray for an extra level of strength and comfort for her body, because in the last update that I heard, she was really overwhelmed with pain. Please pray that God would continue to wrap Jordan in His arms of love. Please pray that Sophie, Jack, Jonas, and Owen will know the legacy that their mom is leaving behind, and remember the amazing love she had for everyone especially them.
Mags, we are so excited for you to be healthy, strong, and to dance on those golden streets, but are so sad for us that you are leaving. You are loved!

So as you may or may not know, Slim and I get to go on vacation with my family, to Syracuse next week. I grew up there, but my Sweet Babe has never been.
Here are some things that he will get to experience for the very first time, while we are there. Now bear with me, because most of it is food, but that is pretty much the best part of the crazy city.
A coney from Heid's Hot dogs. Well, Slim has had a coney cooked at home, but never at Heid's. They serve Hoffman's hot dogs and coneys, and I would bet my life on the fact that they are the best in the entire universe.
These delicious headlight donuts. Well actually pretty much anything that you can get at a real bakery... whether it be these
which by the way are not called 'black and white cookies' rather 'half moon cookies'
I am also excited to bring him to Missio Church to see our darling friends who moved up there to start a branch of Summit Church in my home town.
I am going to also bring him here...
For those of you who think that Publix is the best Supermarket, you obviously have never been to Wegman's. That's all I have to say about that.
Here are some other things that we are going to do during our journey-
-Have dinner with the Joneses
-Stay at the Maple Tree Inn, my uncle's hotel
-Visit with Sarah, Joel, and Owen
-Go to a family reunion
-Visit Heather, Jake, Sydney, and Nathan
-Go to Brant Lake for the weekend
-Visit with Jess Winebrenner on the way home.
By the way, I need vacation more than you could know!
