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....Here is genuine proof that 50 happens to the 'best of us'! My beloved sister has a monumental birthday today.

This is the gal that I look to for wisdom - she's 'been there and done that' with most everything, and boy am I blessed to have had her pave the way before me. She has been a good and Godly example for me all my life. Thanks God, for my sister!

Stuff and Things

We had a ball at the air show a few weeks back.....

We are in the market for a new car....Marand rear-ended another vehicle....and the insurance company deemed my pilot 'totaled' :( Super sad face over here....Please pray for just the right one that we can replace it with...and for our marital bliss to continue, even while sharing his old pickup truck! hahahah!

Still waiting for news that we've been certified to adopt....

we'll keep on waiting on the LORD to renew our strength!


Somebody is 8 years old!

We just had a great time with some great friends and Jesus family for Jacob's 8th birthday...

Marand did a super job of grilling, officiating a 'ninja' game, and teaching through a ninja pipe-cleaner craft - He is my hero.

And what fun it was to watch Jacob open three presents revealing a 'tiger' a 'widow' and and 'island'....

Jacob exclaims: "Dad.....!?! I meant the LEGO set named 'Tiger widow Island'....I didn't want a plastic tiger, a black widow minifigure, and a photo of an island!?!!"  Hahahaha....good one dad.

Praise God for Mama Angela!

We got to drive Mama Angela from denver back to Ft. Lyons Tuesday and Wed of this week. How blessed we are to be able to love on her in Jesus name! She is doing pretty well! Please continue to pray that she'll make good decisions and choices - that she will focus on good habits.

Marand rear-ended a car with our family pilot last night.....thanks for praying that all turns out o.k.

We are BBQ Birthday partying with 30ish of our Jesus family here tonight for Jacob's 8th birthday...yea for party! 


Where does the time go?

We had a ball with Marand's three 'long lost' siblings this week - Fun to have all four of them together. We road the gondola, hiked on top of the continental divide, fed chipmunks, watched waterfalls, fed ducks and fish, played games....etc, etc. Praise God for siblings!

Thanks for your continued prayers for adding siblings to this house as well! We are still waiting on the agency and the state to certify us, but the ball is in their court, all our 'stuff' is done! Yea! I can't help but wonder about God's timing in Aunt Tina supplying us with a truck load of baby stuff.....we are ready!!

Please pray for Grandma Barrientez as she goes in for surgery on Wednesday. Cancer has been diagnosed.

The boys and I are looking forward to a day with Mama Angela on Tuesday this week - Praise God for her being healthy enough for us to love on her in Jesus name!

and this was Isaac's last day of K-4 class, a while back....Cutie Patooties.
