Thank you so much for all of your prayers over the past few months, and especially the past few weeks. We were able to get out of our old house and into one that is much nicer and in a much better neighborhood.

Our house in Rogers has still not sold, but we are seeing a potential reason why God has allowed it to stay unsold. Without going into details now, we may have someone who could benefit from moving into it, so please be praying for that situation.

He continues to provide for our every need, at exactly the right time!

Every day I am almost brought to tears from the shear magnitude of His love for us,
so undeserved, yet so welcomed and utterly appreciated.

Psalm 46:10 "Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth" has been playing on my heart strings lately. Just for me to step back and allow Him to be God, allow Him to be exalted in everything I say and do.

Today, while I was taking JD to school a song came on the radio that said, "Not to us, but to Your name be the glory", Cora asked, "What does that mean, not to us, but to Your name?" So we had a nice discussion about giving glory to God and how He created each of us with special gifts and talents that we are to use for Him...that He placed each one of us here to fulfill a certain purpose, and ultimately that purpose is to bring Him glory.

It was an amazing conversation, and they both really got into it, asking questions and adding their thoughts and realizations to it.
God continues to use JD and Cora to humble me and to make me realize how true it is that we must become "like children".

Until next time...remember to stop...just stop...

Be still, and realize that HE IS GOD!
