Safely Home...

Well, my boys are now safely home. They are tired, achy and full of stories about their time away. We've watched videos of them and saw a ton of pictures already. They are glad to be home but what an incredible time they had!!

First and most importantly, for those praying for them, thank you! Your prayers have brought a substantial harvest.....at least 20 new believers into the Kingdom!!!!!!! Awesome!!!! Far exceeding the 5 we were praying for but isn't that like our ABUNDANT God?!

Second, they were incredibly blessed by the hospitality and friendship of the church there. It really ministered to our boys and that's what they keep talking about....the youth pastors, the kids, the way they were loved and taken care of. What a church should look like!

Thirdly, they have videos I am so wanting to post for your viewing pleasure but I have to figure it out first. Maybe tomorrow in my "spare" time. LOL!!

Praising God tonight! Sweet Dreams....

How humbled, thankful and surprised I was today. I cannot express my gratitude in words for the blessing in the mail I got today. You just have no idea what that meant to me. What a special, kind and good woman you are. I posted pictures of us opening it on my blog. With deepest gratitude, Trisha:)

Are You Ready?

As a pastor, I'm often called upon when life "vanishes like a mist." One of the most powerful examples I've seen of this was Stan Gerlach, a successful businessman who was well known in the community. Stan was giving a eulogy at a memorial service when he decided to share the gospel. At the end of his message, Stan told the mourners, "You never know when God is going to take your life. At that moment, there's nothing you can do about it. Are you ready?" Then Stan sat down, fell over and died. His wife and sons tried to resuscitate him, but there was nothing they could do - just as Stan had said a few minutes earlier.
I'll never forget receiving that phone call and heading over to the Gerlach house. John, a son, stepped out of the car weeping. He asked me, "Did you hear the story? Did you hear? I'm so proud of him. My dad died doing what he loved doing most. He was telling people about Jesus."  I was asked to share a word with everyone ga…

The Old Rugged Cross...

Sean and the guys are between jobs right now and so Zachary has been helping me with odd jobs here around the house. It has been a HUGE blessing to me!  Leaves I never finished raking are finally removed, a campfire pit has been built, a shed sorted and organized (Hallelujah!) and best of all, my Old Rugged Cross is erected! Isn't it terrific?! I've been wanting to build one since watching the Fireproof movie. Zack situated it so I can see it when I look out the window over my kitchen sink. :) He outdid himself on it. He really roughed up the wood and even burnt it to give it that ruggedness I love. There are nail marks in it too. As Zachary carried the cross to set it up Kyalynn kept saying, "look, it's Jesus the Christ, yes it is". LOL! The kids love visiting the cross and this morning Connor was excited to tell me that he was praying at the cross and talking with Jesus. So glad.

Now she's....

11! Can hardly believe our precious, tiny, happy girl is 11 years old!  She's the first one home and I have no doubt that her contagious joy  helped propel us on to adopt 4 more times. :) 



She is a lover of all things but especially birthdays! If she hears it's someones' birthday she gets so excited and plans to be at their party even if she wasn't invited. LOL! She's been diligently reminding us every.single.day sometimes every.minute.of.every.day that her birthday was coming up. There were only two things she wanted.....a Veggie Tales Lord of the Beans dvd and a harp. Yes, you read that right....a harp! Oh my, this girl is a big dreamer but that's better than not dreaming at all! :) So Sean and I set our brains to thinking how we could pull this off for our girl and my man came through!! Check out this beautiful harp he threw together. 

And it's the perfect size for her and even plays music! Sweet! Kyalynn was thrilled and is so cute playing her harp. She als…
