Ah God....You AMAZE me!!

I'm telling you when you are living life with a Big God crazy things happen! So ya gotta hear this....
For the last little while I've been asking Sean if he could take the two beds in the little boys' room and make them into a bunkbed. The room is very small and the beds left little room for anything else. I've had their dressers in the closet otherwise they wouldn't fit. Now I'm kind of an odd duck. LOL! I don't just like normal (obviously! Ha!) I had envisioned a bunkbed in an T shape. Our roof is a gambrel style roof (think barn roof) so the beams take up significant space as well. Sean said he'd think about it and just a day or so before God's intervention I had asked again but he said he'd have to do alot of reworking of the beds to make sure they were safe, etc. Ok, now fast forward to that Monday. We had to take our sweet Kyalynn for testing in Wyomissing, PA which is quite a haul from our house. Sean took the day off and we all headed at for a very L-O-N-G and painful day for Kyalynn. :( As we were on the way home we decided we'd stop for chinese food and eat it at home but the kids asked for Chik-Fil-A which is a real treat for us when we get it! So we saw one and stopped. As we were in the line ordering Sean was approached by a lady and she asked him if he would like a bunkbed!!!
So he leans down to me and says "Lisa, this lady wants to know if we want a bunkbed." Long story short we spoke with her and she said she'd send us a picture. As we drove home I received the pictures and you are NOT going to believe was the exact type I was wanting!! A  T-shape bunkbed! 
Why, oh why am I still surprised by how God works??
The other amazing thing about this story, besides being incredibly blessed by this precious family, is that this set came with a desk and dresser.  So we were able to use that dresser and drawers for the little boys and then we took their two dressers and passed them on to Gabriella and Connor who haven't had their own dressers. Not only do the boys have this amazing bunkbed set but they also have room in their bedroom to play! I think you can tell from the pictures that Samuel T. and Nolan were beyond EXCITED! :)

Thank you, thank you, thank you Kathy, David and family for being the hands and feet of Jesus to us and blessing us INCREDIBLY!!

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…
