From His Word

Joshua 24:15
"If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."

Prayer and Praise

  • God's Perfect Provision
  • Allow us to teach our children His ways
  • His pefect plan for children (brothers & sisters?)

Well, it seems as though a trip is in order....Aunt Becky, here we come! Hooray for graduations and weddings and the like, that pull us from our daily grind and make us perk up and smile.

Congrats BIG TIME to nephews Philip, and Justice on their high-school graduations, and to Brayden and Maria on their wedding! Yea!

Can you hear the crickets chirping on this website? You most likely won't hear much else from us for a while. Thanks for praying for our safe travels, that we will shine a Jesus light wherever we pass.

Overheard from Isaac and Jacob this morning:

Sounds of thing moving/a thud, and Isaac's voice quickly saying "Sorry Jacob, sorry..."

Jacob replies with a monotone, "Isaac, you really hurt me."

Isaac's voice raises, "I didn't mean to, I'M SORRY!"

quietly Jacob offers "It's not an outside injury, Isaac, it's an inside one. It's on the inside. You can't see it. Did you know that we have skin and stuff on the inside, Isaac? That can get hurt too. Please don't hurt me again."

"ok, I won't."

Hahahaha, nothing like and 'internal injury' to start off your day.

We did get a favorable appraisal on our house, now for the mortgage to come through.....Thanks for praying!

Noah's Ark

Hahahaha, so we just came from a neighborhood BBQ hosted by our friends up the street, and it was too fun to hear them talk about watching our house go up. I can only imagine the curiosity from those on the 'outside' seeing only the outside progress. Just imagining, just wondering......When they found out that we were the family that built it and lived there, and we were having an 'open house' on Saturday, I got some great comments:

"What? Are you talking about that house down there? The box? That was so great how they brought in the walls!"

"Cool, I wondered who was building that thing, it's huge! I'd love to see inside it!"

"Who was the guy with the cool cars? The corvette? That guy was there all the time!!" (Javier)

But my favorite, by far, was the man who piped up with:

"That is such a neat house, It totally looks like Noah's Ark!"

So, they have been cordially invited, our church family, as well as our neighborhood, to come see Saturday (or really any time for that matter). Would you join me in praying for them? Every person who steps foot in here, that as they see, and hear, that they will see and hear our GOD. That they will read the verse I put with their take home cookie, and believe in Jesus.

And, now that 'Noah' and I are done tending the 'animals' we'll be headed off to rest.....totally trusting in our God, who shut the door. It may be a damp life down here, with rough waters, but we know that heaven is going to be a rainbow at the end! Who knows how many days and nights we have left, maybe we need to start raising doves to send out the upper windows! Hahahaha, I love it.
