DOWN RIGHT REST
WHEN YOU’RE LAUGHING!!!
HOLDING DOWN THE FORTH & COUNTING DOWN 10 MORE DAYS TILL BABY DAUGHETR SON-N-LAW & NEW GRANDSON REECE GETS HOME FROM CHINA
We just talked to Heather & seen Reece , he really keeps his eyes on Heather lol! they said he did really good leaving the orphanage,it is 1:00 am our time but around 2:00pm Mon. evening for them so as we're sleeping or trying too lol! they're just getting a good start on their day, please continue to lift them up when you pray, I knew from the start that Gods hedge of protection was all around them as always but just to show you how God works to take that to the next level, they met a couple from Tenn. who is staying in the same hotel, a few doors down, who is also adopting a little boy from the same orphanage, they have become good friends & have been to supper & will celebrate Reece's 3rd birthday while they are there, thank you Jesus ! for putting this couple in my daughter & son-N-laws path to make this journey in a foreign land a little less stressful!God is good!
they found something they could identify at Walmart lol!
their meat department is like an open market, kinda takes you by surprise
from Heathers FB post… It's fun to shop in Wal-Mart when you can't identify half the stuff in there.... made for an interesting day of trying to guess what it all was.. some things were obvious.. like the huge pig skin that was the face of the pig.. it had a snout....the whole chicken hanging bare beside the pig face...
from Heathers FB post…Oh the Walmart in China has a upstairs.. you go up a escalator but it's not stairs. it's flat so you can carry your buggy with you. That was pretty cool.
they will be in China for two more weeks, all week the twins have been asking.. have they got Reece yet lol! oh how excited they will be tomorrow ! my oldest daughter asked me where were we before cell phones, computers, I-phones, Skype & web cams lol!
(L-R)Meagan, Courtney, Hannah, Wes, Madison, Heather Williams
Remember when Annie said oh my goodness! oh my goodness!? well oh my goodness! the time has come! my daughter & son-n-law leave for China in less than two hours, I will be with the girls till the weekend then my son-n-laws mom picks them up for the first week, then I’m back back on the following Sunday to Sunday for the second, yep they’ll be gone for two weeks ,continue to keep them in your prayers, they are going to try to keep us posted from China which we will keep you updated
How often are we guilty of saying things like I have nothing to wear when a special occasion comes along or worry about what to eat from one meal to the next,although there is nothing wrong with planning what to wear, or what to prepare for meals, it’s the worry factor , we are not to be so consumed with worry that it takes our eyes off from where our help comes from
The word abide means to “wait patiently for”, to “continue”, to “endure”, Duet.4:29 tells us but if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shall find him, if thou shall seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul
I can remember a time when our kids were just babies & we had no means of enough income coming in due to a strike at work, but we always sought the Lord & he always met our needs every time, right on time, oh how true Ps.119 is, Blessed are they that keep his testimonies and that seek him with the whole heart
John 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
when we seek the lord with our whole heart and he abides in us, it is then blessings are added to us, we seen some rough times in the early years but here we are over 30 years later, with three grown children, and eight grand children, we say eight because he was our grandson the moment our daughter & son-law started the adoption procedures, it’s been a long year but the journey’s been worth it, they leave next week for China to bring Reece home, he will change our lives as well as we will his , God is good! he is the same yesterday, today & forever! never give up on what God has in store for you, when you go into the throne room, expect nothing less than Victory every time!
THIS SO SWEET TO TRUST IN JESUS
this so sweet to trust in Jesus
just to take him at his word
just to rest upon is promise
just to know thus saith the Lord
Jesus Jesus how I trust him
how I’ve proved him o’rer & o’rer
Jesus Jesus precious Jesus
o for grace to trust him more

It was a beautiful sunny day.when Louisa M. Stead, her husband, and her daughter Lily, decided to go for a picnic. on Long Island Sound. While having their picnic, they heard a scream. from a young boy. Mr. Stead ran to the rescue. Louisa and her daughter watched helplessly as Mr. Stead and the boy drowned. without her husband, Mrs. Stead became very poor and destitute.Yet God never left her. He provided for her always she. learned to trust God, and thus the words to the song 'Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus.' Shortly after this incident, Louisa and her daughter Lily moved to South Africa where they became missionaries. The song is included in many hymnals and has been recorded by many artists.
1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.
Mark 11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
Matthew 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
(10 )Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as [it is in heaven.
(11 )Give us this day our daily bread.
(12) And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
(13) And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
