Amy and Jeff

I know that you guys just moved back to Lubbock … and I believe you just recently found BASE. So you may not be aware that by commenting you pretty much run the risk of landing yourself in the Hot Seat! Thanks for commenting. ūüôā

I do not know you guys extremely well … but I know of you. I’ve visited your blog … http://www.thegearharts.blogspot.com/¬†… on more than one occasion. I’ve had the pleasure of eating lunch with you at least 3 times since you moved to Lubbock.

I’ve heard the excitement of several of my friends as they told me you were moving to Lubbock. I’ve been around your adorable children and their beautiful eyes.

But … I don’t really know you guys. I don’t know much about your work in Mexico … or what you’re doing in Lubbock now. I would really enjoy hearing from you guys about how this transition is going for you.

I would also love to hear some thoughts and encouragement from the rest of you guys for this family of 5 that has recently been through a big transition.

Please help me welcome Jeff, Amy, and family to BASE.

Felicia … Flee … Felicia … Flee

I have been racking my brain trying to remember when we met. I have mentioned before that I have the worst memory every and things that happened yesterday or beyond can be pretty foggy.

I remember this picture being taken at Campus Advance. I also remember you, Angie and I having our little group that met while we tried to grow as women. You guys were both such a help for me … I was never one to really open up to folks … but you helped me with that.

How could I ever forget our trip to¬†Clovis? Not sure what we were thinking, but I’m glad we went. The tattoo I got on that little¬†trip has always been a good reminder to me of just¬†how big God is. When I struggled to believe in anything at all … that would at least give me a little hope.

I still check your blog regularly although it’s not been updated in a while ¬†http://survivinginsearcy.blogspot.com/¬†. No problem with that as far as I’m concerned … if I had three kids I don’t know that I’d have time to do much of anything.

Flee thanks for being such a good friend to me. I pray that you are doing well and that your family is doing good. I appreciate the encouragement you have given to other “hot seaters” … that is a gift you have and you use it well.

I would love for you to make a comment and let us know what you have been up to lately … share some things about your children and husband … and I’d love to hear about a lesson you’ve learned in the last few years.

Jason and Heather Thornton

I wish that I knew these guys better. It has been so long since we were in AIM … 1992 … 16 years … can anyone believe that?!

This weekend we had a Mark Study workshop and I was fortunate to meet Aaron … Jason’s brother. It made me start reflecting on our AIM time … and I just can’t believe how long ago that was.

¬†In AIM I remember Jason singing, singing, and singing … usually with Stuart and Jon.

I vaguely remember Heather.¬†That has been such a long time ago that all of my memories are sparked by pictures. If I don’t¬†have a picture of it … I probably¬†won’t remember it.

I know, from reading Heathers’s blog ¬†http://swallowedup.blogspot.com/¬†that they have a boy named Eli and a girl named Julia. I love reading the stories Heather writes about them. Check out her blog … it will make you smile.

¬†Heather and Jason … if you’re up for it … let us know what you’re up to. What has been the most memorable experience from your field time? How long have you been married? How old are your children? What is your funniest memory from your AIM time in Lubbock … on the field?¬†What is your favorite story¬†about your children?

I would love to hear from you guys …

I would love to hear from the rest of you BASERS … help me encourage Jason and Heather with your memories and kind words.
