Friends and family:

I have received encouragement from several of you to blog about this journey that I am on and to provide a mechanism for Elizabeth’s family and friends to honor her by sharing photographs, special memories and how perhaps your life has changed due to the circumstances that occurred on July 30, 2012.

As many of you are keenly aware, my daughter Elizabeth along with my grandsons, Fischer and Benjamin were traveling on Highway 95 between Elgin and Taylor and in a blink of an eye, they were scooped up in the loving arms of our Savior.  That event has forever changed my life along with her family and friends.

For these reasons I created this site.  My hope and prayer is that this site will honor my daughter, grandsons,  and bring glory to the Lord Almighty!  Because in life and in death it is about His GLORY!  And that through their life and their earthly departure to their forever home, their continues to be an important and amazing story to be told.  A story of LOVE, FAITH, and HOPE……

I will seek out guest “bloggers” to tell some stories and hope this is a springboard for future opportunities to discuss Grace Based Parenting, online discussion groups, and other ways to connect and bring honor to God, Lizz and the boys.

I ask for your patience as I learn my way around this new technology of blogging :).

I hope you follow me on this journey…..

Seek Justice, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly with your God…..

His grace is sufficient!

  1. 1 Corinthians 15:55-58
    O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR VICTORY? O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law; but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.

    Julie, thank you for sharing your journey. No one knows why this was in God’s divine plan for you, but know that He will carry your through this! God bless you and keep you, my friend!

  2. I was Liz’s high school counselor at SPHS. I still remember the first time I met her! She was sooo full of life. She quickly became one of my favorite students. After she graduated we kept in touch but then of course life gets in the way and we lost touch. Then I heard about the accident and I was crushed. I cried my eyes out. Wishing I could hear her say Miss Gallego, how are you?! In only the way Liz could! She always brought a smile to my face! I miss her!
