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?)

Foster Parents

"Having children is always a risk. My bio children, my foster children...I'm really not in control of any of their fates. In a very real sense, all of the children in my home are "mine." In another - maybe even more real - sense, none of the children in my home are mine. They were created by God, they were given to me by God, they belong to God. Their lives are safer in His hands than they could ever be in mine, and I willingly relinquish them all to Him." -face book post

I tried hard not to be a 'foster mom' - I prayed - I vocalized my wishes to the powers that be - yet, My Soverign God thought it best to grant me the title. These 4 beautiful lives have been placed in our home, and the possibility is there that they may leave.

Marand and I keep talking about the 'dust' that is in the air...the particles that keep flying around and makeing our eyes water....who am I kidding, I've wept prayers like nobody's business over here. This is a hard thing, but by His grace alone, we are going to do it.

Blessed by Gifts!

Hello there! Does anyone want to 'fess up' to having sent my boys Lego Ninja Costumes after Halloween?! They LOVE them!! THANK YOU!

I just don't know who 'YOU' is!!

We also received Christmas Advent Calanders.....and I don't know who to thank for those! We will enjoy using them! We praise God for our family!! Unless you let me know who you are, I guess we'll give real thanks to whom it is ultimately due:

James 1:17 "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning."

Thanks for praying for our meeting on Monday the 21st at 3pm, concerning the sibling group to possibly be placed with us as well....Peace That Passes Understanding going on over here....God's kids, not ours. His life through us, not our own!!


Veteran's Day Kindergarten Presentation

We had a great day today at the Assisted Living Home in Kremmling. Isaac's kindergarten class did a great job of presenting some Veteran's Day songs and poems.

Lunch with Grandma Sue,

Making Poppies Flowers for the residents,

and seriously enjoyed the views on the drive home...

No 'official' snow yet for us up here!! CRAZY!!

I'm going to have to stop saying 'I live in the Arctic'....for this year, I'll say, 'I live in God's Country'!

Thanks for being our family..not sure how many of you still check this website...but, know that I'm grateful for you! We covet your prayers for a possible placement of 4 young children in our home. It would be a foster/to adopt placement, and we are just praying, praying, praying...His will not ours. His children, not ours. His kingdom come, His will be done!!
