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?)

Verses on the Brain

II Thessalonians 1:12

"That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ."

Our formal study through 1 and 2 Thessalonians ended last night - and I'll still be working through the homework for a while to come :) But I sure do enjoy the challenge to hand write the books of Scripture as we go along. Kind of a lost and dying art, this writing thing....but valuable time spent.

I pray our day brings the name of our Lord Jesus Christ glory, and that He's the only one I glory in!


Quick Trek

So the boys and I quick trekked to LaJunta on Saturday. Hooray for our family - we sure do love spending time with them!

We also got to love on Mama Angela a bit: Thanks for your continued prayers for her.

On another note: If you know anybody who stains concrete for a living, PLEASE shake their hand, hug them, pat them on the back, and then PAY them heartily for their services.

Marand stayed home Saturday to accomplish that feat at our house. We spent hours doing the prep work before I left, and so I thought he just had the easy part to finish. No problems, right? Hahahaha. Let's just say that some sprayers are junk sent to us from other countries, we have two more jugs of stain on order, and one husband who REALLY wants to be done with this project.

Never again my friends, never again.

PSALM 143:8 "Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you."

Beautiful things

Hahaha! I guess he was amazed I could carry in so many grocery bags at at time!! Cutie Patootie.

and hooray for brick on the one kitchen wall - it got mortared after I took this shot. I love it.

So Close!!

So I've heard a dream of 'Monday' for calling in final inspections! God's going to get us in that house in his perfect time, and boy am I hoping it's next week!!

Electrician is done. Plumbers should be done with all but the two downstairs potties today. (they need to wait on us staining concrete for those two) .  I even saw water in sinks, and a garbage disposal yesterday......Mr. Bill is in today finishing the kitchen wall brick (would you pray for him, as his mama's memorial service is this weekend)....I've heard the outside is getting finish work today and the rest of the week/weekend...Now, let's see how far Marand and I make it on cleaning/prepping the concrete tonight! Praising God for His light at the end of tunnels!

Would you continue to pray for strength, for witness, for peace in unsettled times. I'm so thankful for you all, for prayer warriors, for family, for friends. I praise God for you, and pray His richest blessings in your lives - What a blessing to walk the Jesus walk with you!

Almost time to 'book' your visit with we can sit and chat about what God is so faithfully doing in YOUR lives! I.Can't.Wait.
