Take it to God Tuesday....

1 Peter 5:7 (29 kb)

Friends I am so thankful God cares for me. I am thankful that He wants to carry my burdens, those things that weigh heavily on my heart and soul. That He is always near and is always eager to hear from me. 
I can not imagine one day of my life without Him in it! I couldn't survive without Him! He is my lighthouse when the waves of life threaten to overtake me. He is the Light that constantly beams forth guiding me safely to shore amidst storm after storm after storm. He is my Rock. My Refuge. My Shelter and Safe Haven. 

John 16:33 (61 kb)

As we navigate life through this perilous world let us remember that we are more than conquerors because of HIM!

Today my heart is heavy with the needs of my friends. I ask you to join with me to pray and help carry these burdens to the Lord.


1.) My oldest sons friend, Eric. He is in the m*rines and will be leaving to do his first tour of duty in the middle of September. His destination is Afghanistan. His job is demolitions expert and the mortality rate is very high. (Like 1 in 3!) Please pray protection and safety over him and that he would be infused with God's peace, presence and strength. 

2.) Please pray for Elaine. She just found out that she has breast cancer. Please pray for God's healing touch on her body. Please also lift her precious family in prayer too as they process and walk this journey with her.

3.) Please pray for Dana as her family navigates the turbulent waters of house hunting and renting. Not fun! :(

4.) Please keep Mama D and her little RADish in prayer. They are on a mega roadtrip and having to deal with  disobedient children is never fun while traveling but when you have to deal with RAD behaviors it's often over the top and very, very exhausting. Please pray for peace for this child so the rest of the family can enjoy the roadtrip.

5.) And last but certainly not least, is sweet Selah.  Continued prayers for her and her family.

Thank you friends for standing in the gap with me for these precious ones. There are so many needs out there and I am honored to join in praying. If you have something you would like me to pray for leave me a comment or contact me by email. (It's listed in my profile)
Much love and sweet sleep to you tonight....


Praying! We get to see the Mama D crew tomorrow :)- we can't wait!!! Praying we can encourage each other as we know some of what it feels like. Of course I have not ever attempted a huge road trip by myself? Hmmmm....that may send me over the top?

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 sometimes 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…
