Little Gifts

It's been 8 weeks now. I wanted to share some little gifts that make me smile. These are some notes that Brandon has written. Most of these were found in his desk upstairs in his room. Some of them came from his papers and books from school that his teacher gave to me.
Written on January 11, 2012 Brandon wrote that he likes his family, mama, papa and sisters.

Written sometime in January Brandon wrote "My name is Brandon and I like my bike."  His bike was his favorite toy he owned....He died doing something he truly LOVED. Personally, I wish he didn't have a bike and he was a couch potato kid....Not really, but at least he'd be alive.

Dear Journal, My name is Brandon. I like school because I like arithmetic. I like soccer because I am play game.  I like play outside.
Dear Journal, I think the Gospel is good.
November My favorite food (is) turkey.  I like thanksgiving because thanksgiving (has) good food (and) good play (outside) with friends.
January 2012 Brandon Kerr I like America because I like trees and I like cars.
December 2011 My name is Brandon.  I (will) write (about) Christmas. True Christmas. I have a car and a family.  I like my family.

Summer Fun (Fall 2011). I go to the fair.  I go to the beach. I went to the (park to) fish. My family went to the beach. My family went to the fair.  My dad and I go fishing.  My mama goes to work.


  1. Awesome treasures! Still pray for you and your family each day, we love you <3

  2. You have a heart of Gold, CK. Does it sound stupid to say, though I never met him, I miss Brandon, too? As our families have so much in common, only reversed, I always enjoyed reading the boy end of what you were doing while we were doing it on the girl end.

    I told my wife the other day that your family must be going to Ukraine to do missionary work because I know of no other "white harvest." Truly the harvest is ripe, but the workers are few. Pray the Lord of the harvest.

    So please, keep us posted, and I will keep on praying...

    Blessings, Kelly

    1. Yes, Kelly. You are correct. See our latest entry "Mercies in Disquise." We'll be adding more about this as God reveals more to us. Thank you for the response and for your prayers.

  3. What beautiful and precious treasures to be able to find those things. I know they mean so much to your family. I believe God placed them there and allowed you to find them just when He knew you needed them. We continue to pray for you.
