You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.
You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6:5-9

Prayers & Praises

Praising God for what he's doing for the children of Haiti via the "hands and feet" of Christ. Check this out: Tara Livesay A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

Today, we are T-minus 46 days from our planned arrival in Haiti with the Parkway Christian Church team. Not that I am counting or anything. Not that I am excited or anything. Tonight, we are have a BBQ at our house with the team members traveling (maybe 11 of us or so?) and their families. Can't wait to hang out and get some more details.
Can't wait to squeeze my boys again.
Pray for the details (funds, supplies, projects, good health etc.) to come together for this team. We need more supplies to take with us.

Got some new pics from a mom that was just in Haiti-Thanks Sarah. The pics do my heart a world of good, while I wait.

We are planning a garage sale next weekend. We have gotten a LOT of GREAT stuff donated to sell. It's amazing. I'm excited, and a little overwhelmed. Lots of work to do....but we are praising God for the opportunity to do some work and earn some money toward our adoption expenses. Pray for the work to go well, an organized sale and a GREAT turnout where people buy everything....I took a few pics of the garage, but haven't uploaded them yet. It's full. A 3 car garage, with only room for 1 car right now!!

Praising God for the funk that I was in lifting. I really felt your prayers, so thanks.

We serve a really BIG God and He is not surprised by any of this. Woohoo!
I am grateful for the reminder.

Share each other's troubles and problems, and in this way obey the law of Christ.
Galatians 6:2
