Prayers Appreciated!

I was on the phone with our birthmom yesterday and she was having major contractions. She headed to the hospital around 6:18 pm and we didn't hear anything again until this morning around 11:00 am! The agency was calling to tell us they had no new information. UGH! So finally around 5:00 I broke down and had to call the agency. Nope, no news.

The deal is birthmom has some serious health issues, baby is breech and big so they are wanting to do a C-section. Well, she just called a short while ago to tell us that baby will NOT be born in the next couple of days. Apparently, she will be 38 weeks this Tuesday and they did an amnio and they are saying babies lungs are not ready yet?! So they are giving her medication to stop or slow down contractions and steroids to help babies lungs develop quickly.

Please, please pray for birthmom and baby's health. Birthmom is very uncomfortable, retaining fluids, and so tired. Of course we are anxious for baby but my heart is focused on mom right now. I feel for her and know how miserable this pregnancy has been for her on alot of realms.

So our family would appreciate your prayers and we will sit back and wait for The Great Physician to do His best work and excitedly look forward to holding our new little one.

Thank you so very much!!!

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.

The Prayer of Sir Francis Drake

I read this a couple months ago on another blog. It moved me and I've had it hanging on my fridge since then. We watched Hotel Rwanda this past weekend and for some reason this prayer kept coming to my mind. I teetered on an emotional roller coaster throughout this movie....anger, sadness, lots of tears, hopelessness, anger again, then hope....1 person can make a huge difference! Our family may not be able to save all the orphans of the world but we can save 1 or 2 or 3. That has made a huge difference in their lives....and ours....especially ours!

Disturb me Lord to see the plight of millions, homeless, starving and fighting for life each day. Disturb me Lord when I complain about my lack when I have NO idea what lack really is! Lord, disturb me, so that I can see past myself and venture forth being Your hands and feet. Help me to dream big dreams only You can bring to pass.

"Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves, When our dreams have come true because…
