I've had the absolute joy and humbling blessing of being a part of our granschildrens lives. Pictured

are grandsons Bryant, 31 and Jon, 17. This photo is of Jon's first bird of 2023. He took his first at age 5 and has limited every season since. Bryant's story is similar except school, work, family have gotten in the way in adult years. I've a thousand stories about life, hunts, shots, catches w/my children, grandchildren & great grandchildren. Girls included as well!
A few months ago, Bryant's beautiful wife and mother of their four children was diagnosed w/cancer. She began chemo soon after with surgery scheduled after Christmas. In God's hands!!!
The first Saturday of September, as he was returning from an early goose season scouting venture, Jon was injured in a truck accident. Bryant was first on the scene and Jon was transported to an ER where emergency surgery was performed for a TBI. Later that night, he was transported to Vanderbilt Trauma ICU. Since, he has progressed and is currently in rehab therapy in Atlanta. In God's time!!!
Folks this is not about my boys, it's about you! If you're not secure in your salvation, don't put it off. Accept Jesus as your Savior, NOW!
What about your boys, girls, grandchildren, hunting and fishing buddies? The grandeur of creation & the quietness of the hunting blind/stand/boat are great places to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with them. We pride ourselves in teaching them how to shoot, hunt, fish, work hard, speak the truth and live a good life. Let's be sure we teach them to know God and receive His salvation. You, or even worse, they may be the subject of an emergency call.
If you offer a prayer for our family, thanks! But please, please, please take the time to share Jesus with those you love!

Prayers for your Grandson and all of your family. I know exactly what you're going through with your Grandson Jon, as my 20 y.o. son was in an accident 3 years ago. ICU for 3 weeks, hospital for 3 months. Physically, he's fine now; but has a pretty severe TBI. I had never prayed so hard in my life.

If you need anything, or just to talk with someone who's been there, message me. I'm also confident that my son would be willing to talk with your Grandson if he wants - depending on the severity of the TBI he will have to learn how to deal with it and I know my son was/is pretty frustrated with it. Maybe they can help each other.

God bless you
