Happy Birthday Tyler!

     Today Ron and I spent a wonderful lunch with Tyler's brother, Harry Meiners, his wife Ashley and 3 beautiful children! They drove a long way just to be with us, just to share stories about Tyler, laughter and tears.
      Tyler was blessed with such special friends, many who loved our son and enjoyed life with him. Friends who also share the same Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and will one day see Tyler again! What a special God we have, He loves us, He saves us, He blesses our lives and He daily bears our burdens! He sends special gifts of love through others just when we need it the most! Thank You Lord, please kiss our boy for us on his 29th birthday!
     Harry and Tyler were so very close, such great friends, true brothers of the very best kind! They got each others jokes, talked long hours about everything in life, laughed and enjoyed every moment together. Tyler would have loved today, too! Harry and Ashley went to the cemetary to spend time with our Tyler this afternoon, they talked about him to their little ones. They took doughnuts and had a birthday party there together as a family! Oh Lord, Tyler would love that! So sweet, we are still wiping tears! No greater love than that.........Thank You Harry and Ashley!  God bless you all!

Birthday eve....

29 years ago tonight........Ron and I had gone out to eat with my parents...after getting home I awoke in the middle of the night, our baby was on the way! We called my mom and dad to come to our house and stay with Sumer so we could drive to the hospital. When we got in the car we noticed it was almost out of gas, so my dad followed us to the truck stop on I40 to make sure we made it and he went back to our house.
      Ron and I went on to Asheville to Mission and our beautiful baby boy, Tyler, was born at 10am, on October 7, 1983! I do believe he was smiling when he came into this world! He had kicked so hard before he got here that I just knew he would be a great soccer player, and he was! Always a happy baby, so loving and full of smiles! He looked alot like Ron's dad when he was born so much that Papaw claimed him as his own, sent from God to him! He was a precious gift from God to everyone who ever met him! But Tyler was Mama's little man! Happy Birthday to our baby boy! We all love and miss you Ronald Tyler Woodle!!

Tyler's birthday week 2012

Our God is so awesome! This is not news, He always has been and He always will be. This week once again He reminds me of how very much He cares for us and how He comforts us in our pain and grief.    God sent 12 of Tyler's brothers to visit us, we shared a wonderful evening and had a birthday party together for Tyler! Thank You Lord Jesus, for giving us a wonderful son, our Tyler, for giving him wonderful brothers, true friends and for sending people to love on us when we need it!  Last year his precious friend Harry came to spend the night with us so we would not be alone on Tyler's birthday, thank you! Once again God reaches down into our hearts to bless us! We cannot praise You enough!! We have many of Tyler's brothers on our hearts and in our prayers right now as they serve in hard circumstances, far from home! Please join us in prayer at 6pm. or 1800 hours each day for our guys!      HOOYAH Tyler Woodle!  Your mom and dad sure do love and miss you!
May you feel the arms that hold the universe holding you tonight, He's holding us! And our precious Tyler is with Him, our comfort!
