Do You Need Help Caring for a Loved One?

Opinion: diamonds, Bible and people are all considered flawless?
By Nicole Labrie
I just saw a picture of an 84.37 carat diamond.
Unbelievable. The cost is even more astonishing
–$16.2 million. Wait, I will be right back...got to
go get the checkbook.
In the original Greek, the word diamond means
“unbreakable.” Unbreakable means not easily
broken or able to stand rough usage. Put a pin in
that definition and hold on to it.
There are some diamonds that are considered
“flawless.” From what I read, one in seven million diamonds are considered flawless. What I
found even more interesting is that this brilliant
gem forms from something very ordinary: carbon.
Since I am no Dmitri Mendeleev (you know the
famous chemist credited with developing the first
periodic table of the elements), I will cautiously
explain carbon, a chemical element whose original meaning translates “coal.” Carbon is the 15th
most abundant element in the earth’s crust and
the fourth most abundant element in the universe
by mass. In the human body, it is the second most
abundant element by mass. Scientifically speaking, it is the basis for all known life. We could
not exist without carbon. Carbon is very stable
and takes high temperatures to react. Diamonds
form from high temperatures.
Coal to diamonds? It just doesn’t seem possible. To take something so dark, void of any
beauty, and form it into a brilliance like no other
God knew what He was doing when He created us. He knew what elements we would need
Caring for a
to sustain our lives. Can you imagine a transformation like this? Going from dark and void to a
fiery brilliance that penetrates the hearts of men?
Can you imagine someone so in love with
you that they consider you “flawless”? Yeah,
me neither, but I decided that I would imagine
and hopefully see through His eyes the love that
Christ has for us.
Religion teaches us to consider ourselves unworthy of His love. That we shouldn’t consider
ourselves “flawless” but filled with imperfections, sin, mistakes, darkness, and a lot of other
negative interchangeable words.
Relationship (with Christ) teaches us that we
are unworthy of His love, but by His grace we
It’s that simple. Grace saved us. Grace accepts
us. Grace sees us flawless. Grace sends us the
fiery brilliance of the Holy Spirit to live within
us. Grace loves.
Paul said it best in 1 Corinthians 15:9-10: “For
I am the least of the apostles and do not even
deserve to be called an apostle because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of
God I am what I am and His grace to me was not
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have the freedom
that Paul had? To be able to say, “I am what I
am,” to accept God’s grace and His love for us
and to see ourselves as “flawless.” To be the one
in seven million that knows that we are only
flawless because of His grace?
Paul also stated that His grace was not without
effect. God’s grace changed him. He became the
fiery brilliance that God desired for Him to be.
Paul was a leader. He wasn’t filled with self
doubt; he was filled with faith. Once he was
saved, and he was saved in a radical way, he
lived for Christ. He lived to preach and teach,
and he wanted the whole world to know about
Jesus. Maybe, just maybe, if Paul could do it,
if he could go through what he did and still be
faithful to the One who called him, then maybe
we could rekindle the fire within us? Could we
possibly say one day, “I am what I am,” and be
comfortable with that statement? Think about it.
The Word of God, aka the Bible, is also considered “flawless.”
Yup, says so in 2 Samuel 22:31. “As for God,
His way is perfect, the Lord’s word is flawless.”
The Bible is the best selling book of all time.
This is absolute confirmation that God’s Word is
truth and power. Hebrews 4:12 sums it up: “For
the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than
any double edged sword, it penetrates even to
dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it
judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”
God took ordinary men, stone, chisels, pen and
paper, and formed the Bible. He used Holy Spirit
inspired, ordinary and imperfect men, with ordinary and imperfect lives, like you and me. And,
he called the Bible flawless!
The images that we see today on TV, in magazines, in school and at work, try and create for us
our self image. If you don’t like your nose, get a
new one. If you don’t like your body, get surgery.
If you don’t wear this brand, you’re not cool.

Attorney Jay Anderson understands the importance of community
Murrells Inlet attorney Jay Anderson understands the importance of community.
While an undergraduate at the University of
South Carolina studying psychology, Anderson
was introduced to renowned psychologist Samuel Sarason’s definition of “sense of community,”
a definition he likes.
“The feeling members have of belonging,” Anderson said, “a feeling that members matter to
one another and the group, and a shared faith that
members’ needs will be met through their commitment to be together.”
Anderson said that lawyers are not generally believed when they say they want to help people,
but he has “always tried to assist those in need.
We’ve all needed help at one time or another -and
no matter the size of the personal dilemma you
face, when it happens to you, it is a very personal
and painful matter. That’s why I wanted to have
my practice right here in the inlet - to help my
fellow community members with those matters.”
Born and raised into a large family, Anderson
grew up in Greenville and attended Bob Jones
Academy and University, where his mother and
siblings had all attended. In his junior year, he
transferred to USC in Columbia, where he graduated with a degree in political science in 1986 and
a J.D. in 1989. He said he was immediately hired
by the much revered South Carolina family law
attorney, the late Harvey L. Golden.
After many years of focusing on family law issues, Anderson said, he opened his own office in
lated and informed decisions.”
Anderson lives in Murrells Inlet with his wife,
Jocelyn. They have two daughters: Jillian, a 2006
graduate of the College of Charleston; and Bianca, a 2008 graduate of the University of Georgia.

Columbia, where he represented bank creditors
in foreclosure and bankruptcy actions.
“I have been on both sides of that fence,” he
said, laughing. “That is why it is such a good
feeling to be able to represent the consumers who
are facing possible foreclosure and bankruptcy. I
know exactly how that system works.”
Anderson said he has been in the corporate world
and worked in sophisticated offices, but the real
luxury is having a small, comfortable office located right here in the inlet. “I want my neighbors
to feel they can stop by, have a cup of coffee, and
chat about what we can do to help resolve their
legal issues,” he said.
“I want my potential clients to take their time
and tell me their situations, ask their questions
and understand their options,” Anderson said.

Son’s murder in NC leads to inlet and charity...from page 1
However, according to a story published Dec.
15, 2001 in the Fayetteville Observer, she was
tried a second time and pled guilty to first-degree
kidnapping charges. In exchange for a guilty plea,
the state dismissed the murder charge against her.
She was sentenced to 45 to 63 months in prison.
Wayne still finds it hard to believe that Myers,
who was small, could subdue Chris by himself.
Even if Tyson helped him, Wayne can’t see Chris
bound so easily. But, wondering how it happened
won’t bring his son back, he said. One thing he
does know is that the boy who was convicted of
murder proved to be incredibly unstable, with a
history of bizarre acts.
Lawsuit and book
The Egglestons eventually filed a lawsuit
against the school, where it was alleged “The
Kindred” met, settled through court ordered mediation for $150,000, according to the Fayetteville Observer.
Of great consolation to Wayne, he said, is the
knowledge that his son gave his life to Jesus
Chris shortly before his life was taken.
One way Wayne grieved the murder of Chris in
1997, was to write a book, “My Grieving Soul,”
published in 2002 by Infinity Publishing.com. In
it, he recounts the details mentioned in this story.
He also relates his frustration with a detective
who wrote Chris off as a runaway from day one.
Wayne said if not for the persistence of hundreds
of his military colleagues at Ft. Bragg, who
combed the woods for days, Chris would never
have been found. An anonymous caller, and another female student, tipped them off about the
During the excruciating first days of the tragedy, the entire Fort Bragg and Fayetteville, N.C.,
community wrapped its arms around Angie and
Wayne, holding and supporting the devastated
couple with acts of kindness that continue even
to this day.
Somehow, Wayne said, they survived the initial
shock, the investigations and the trials. “Without our faith and the overwhelming support of
family, friends and strangers, we would not have
survived,” Wayne said.
What helped them more than anything, Angie
said, was a grief support group that met once a
month, Compassionate Friends.
Two years after Chris’s death, Angie and Wayne
retired from the Air Force and moved to Murrells Inlet, where they later opened a business,
Waynes View Photography, which is now located off Bypass 17. They had been working out
of their home for years but felt it was time to
expand. They opened the doors to an office and
photo showroom last month.
Wayne and Angie meet
Angie and Wayne met in the military at Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota. Several
friends told Wayne they were talking with this
woman from South Carolina who they could
not understand because of her accent. Having
graduated from high school in Georgia, Wayne
was jokingly asked to translate for them. He did.
“And the rest is history,” Wayne said.
Wayne served in the U.S. Air Force as a firefighter, emergency medical technician and as
a control and command specialist, first for the
Military AirLife Command and then for the Joint
Special Operations Command at Ft. Bragg, N.C.
Little by little, time helped lift the fog of despair lodged deeply in the Egglestons’ souls, but
Wayne said he will never forgive Myers and Tyson. He knows some may think is it not Christian
of him to think this way, he said, but he is being
honest with others and himself.
Wayne can’t forgive
“The bottom line,” Wayne said, “is I can’t forgive them, because I cannot get the image of the
way they left my son out of my mind. The more
I think about this, the more I feel that, I cannot
forgive them, because that would be forgiving
them for something they did to my son, not to
me. “Do I seethe with hatred and loathing, and
seek revenge? No. I choose to miss my son, and
focus on his sweet memory.”
He said there is some consolation with Tyson’s
sentence, which he felt was way too lenient, in
that “she will have to answer to a higher court
and a higher authority someday. One of the vilest
things and most wicked acts a person can commit in the eyes of God is to harm a child. The
ones responsible for his brutal murder will have
to answer to God one day, and that is enough for
Finally rounding a bend in their lifelong journey through grief, Angie and Wayne eventually
began to talk about finding ways to step outside
their grief, show their appreciation to the military community, and keep the memory of their
son alive. Gradually, a grand idea took shape,

Operation Happily Ever After formed
A nonprofit project named Operation Happily
Ever After was created, which provides a Myrtle
Beach dream wedding for a lucky military couple.
Drawing on their experience as wedding photographers and their contacts with other wedding
professionals, the Egglestons began approaching local vendors, asking them to donate their
time and skills for this good cause. They were
amazed at the generous and enthusiastic response
they received. With the exception of the rings
and dress, everything will be provided, including
the wedding ceremony, a reception with all the
trimmings, luxury beachfront resort accommodations for the wedding party, and a three-night
Operation Happily Ever After will also raise
awareness and funds to help support the Intrepid
Fallen Heroes Fund, a nonprofit organization
which assists military members and their families.
The Operation Happily Ever After logo aptly
symbolizes their project goals: a military dog tag
on a metal chain intertwined with a pair of wedding rings, one bearing the discreet engraved initials of their beloved son Chris.
