This morning, the kids and I joined some family and released some balloons in memory of their Uncle Scott who passed away a year ago. We read the scripture we used at his funeral.
Isaiah 55:12:
You will go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
will clap their hands.

This scripture is especially meaningful to me in regards to Scott's life. He was an avid camper/fisherman. I believe that Scott went out in joy and that Jesus led him forth in peace.

When the first balloon floated out of sight, Alivia said "That one is in heaven." Kevin asked her what would happen with the balloons and she said, "Uncle Scott will get them."

Scott, you are deeply missed. I pray that your legacy of a life transformed will live on. Your life journey was full of inspiration. I hope that you are enjoying fishing in the streams of heaven.



  1. You guys were on all of our hearts this past week. I think the balloon idea was a great way to remember him.

  2. "A life transformed."

    It's really the only way to do this thing. I am so glad Scott leaves that legacy behind.
