Anniversary



The greatest gift I've ever been given is more time with Christopher Sparkman.

Here is a wedding video my sister made for us from two years ago, today.

I wanted a strong marriage, God gave me the opportunity to strengthen. I wanted a deep love, God gave us the opportunity to take our love to new levels. I wanted to celebrate 50+ anniversaries, God made me fall-on-my-knees grateful for 2.

Happy 2nd Anniversary, Christopher. I'm going to love you for all of our days. <3

This case is quite honestly the very last thing Christopher and I wanted to endure. We have reached out to them, unsuccessfully. This is the opportunity for FedEx to deal responsibly with this situation. We know everyone will respectfully have their opinions, and we thank you all in advance for your support. The future is unknown in many ways, but from what we have understood of that morning it's important to recognize these signs in our friends and coworkers to keep it from happening again. Please read and share this report with an open mind, and remember that we have no choice but to deal with this physically, psychologically, financially and emotionally for the rest of our lives. 

Thank you,
Jamie Lynn and Christopher

Lives can change in an instant. Ours certainly have. May we never lose sight of the reasons why God spared lives that morning April 29, 2014.  Please, say a prayer for all of the people involved in the shooting one year ago today. Although Chris and I still struggle physically and emotionally, April 29 is now a great reminder for my family that the greatest gift we'll ever receive is a chance at life. 

"Be kind; everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle".  

Also, Christopher and I would like to ask you all to join my family in a special prayer for the Kramers, who lost their son (and brother) one year ago today. We are truly sorry for your loss.

February 16, 2015 - April 26, 2015. We're finally home. After one more year of bowel rest, clear liquids, and woundcare at home, doctors will try again. 

"So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace..." 2 Corinthians 4:16

Fight Song

Like a small boat
In the ocean
Sending BIG waves
Into motion
Like how a single word
Can make a heart open
I might only have one match
but I can make an explosion

And all those things I didn’t say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song
My power’s turned on
Starting right now I’ll be strong
I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me

Losing friends and I’m chasing sleep
Everybody’s worried about me
In too deep
Say I’m in too deep
And it’s been two years
I miss my home
But there’s a fire burning in my bones
And I still believe
Yeah I still believe

And all those things I didn’t say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song
My power’s turned on
Starting right now I’ll be strong
I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me

Now I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me
