Jakobs Induction into Alpha Chi

Jakob's Induction into Alpha Chi
This young man has already accomplished more in his life than I have. He has taken college full force and is doing amazing there. He has all A's, he works 10 hours a week and takes a full load of Junior Level courses as a sophomore.
Last year we got to see him inducted into Eta Kappa Nu and Tau Beta Pi, as well as the National Society of Collegiate Scholars as a Freshman with in year status finishing with Junior Hours. 
I know it was discouraging that so much was going on campus this same weekend so they did not have the Honor Societies walk the stage due to time restraints. Its tough, the students like him work so incredibly hard. This recognition truly is a wonderful moment. I am thankful regardless that we drove up and were able to be part of it.
It was a little scary since we were away from our other two children with all the storms that are going on, the flooding etc. We did not know if we would make it back from Dallas to Houston that night. While on the road the rain had stopped, traffic was light and we were blessed to make it back without getting stuck anywhere. It is still hard to believe how much rain came in such a short time. It meant two days of school would be missed as well as Paul missing work. 
This is one of my favorites. It was a display of lives lost due to abortion every day in the US alone. It really shows you how many lives are missed for various reasons, I can't even begin to imagine how many lives this would be if it were a whole year.
