Counting the Days

~ I ask for Prayers of SAFE TRAVEL for Jordan & his friend Brant as he is taking a road trip to San Luis Obispo for a couple of days, and then on to San Diego for Thanksgiving with Brant's family. May they have safety, fun, and that God show him AMAZING things!

Football Season has come to an end.

But this guy just got inducted into the NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY! We are so very proud of Seth and how hard he worked to get to where he is. He is also such a fun person to hang out with...I LOVE being his mom!

And this guy will be home in less than a month for Christmas & lots of hugs & kisses from this very proud momma! So pretty soon, we will look like this again, except...picking him up from the airport!
Although...I hope the "Little's" are good in the airport this running off from "little helper boy"...and that the "Princess" realizes that she MUST keep her clothes on!

Counting the days with a happy heart and knowing that this laughing and cheering us on all the way!

Day of Rememberance

AI DuPont's "Day of Remembrance" was on Sunday, October 24th. This is the second year that we decided not to attend, but as always I did submit something on behalf of Brandon. The following is what was published in their Memory Booklet. I hope it speaks to your hearts, and honors Brandon in the way that we continually desire.

Steve, Dawn, Jordan, Seth & the Little's ~ I kind of think Brandon would say..."thanks mom" and then flash that smile!

We continue to see how Brandon Michael Wagamon Hastings legacy is still reaching lives and changing them today. We are so very proud to be the parents, and brothers of the ATMOSPHERE CHANGERS that are Brandon, Jordan & Seth!

Over these last six years since Brandon went to his “REAL HOME ~ HEAVEN”, God has used music to heal our hearts and continue to give us inspiration. Brandon lived his faith in a very big way, and we know that he surely heard…”Well done, my good and FAITHFUL servant”. Music was also a very big part of Brandon’s life, and we can only imagine what it must be like now. We look forward with excitement for that day! This song really speaks to our hearts, not only in Brandon’s legacy, but what we all have the opportunity to do….LEAVE A LEGACY.

We Love you Brandon, you are just that heartbeat away!
Dad, Mom, Jordan, & Seth


I don't mind if you've got something nice to say about me
And I enjoy an accolade like the rest
And you could take my picture and hang it in a gallery
Of all the Who's Who's and So-and-So's
That used to be the best at such and such
It wouldn't matter much

I won't lie, it feels alright to see your name in lights
We all need an "Atta boy" or "Atta girl"
But in the end I'd like to hang my hat on more besides
The temporary trappings of this world

I want to leave a legacy
How will they remember me?
Did I choose to love?
Did I point to You enough?
To make a mark on things
I want to leave an offering
A child of mercy and grace
Who blessed Your name unapologetically
And leave that kind of legacy

Don't have to look too far or too long awhile
To make a lengthy list of all that I enjoy
It's an accumulating trinket and a treasure pile
Where moth and rust, thieves and such will soon enough destroy

Not well-traveled, not well-read
Not well-to-do, or well-bred
Just want to hear instead
Well done, good and faithful one

I don't mind if you've got something nice to say about me
