The Will of God

Just yesterday I heard Adrian Rodgers say something like - The Will of God will never take you, where the grace of God cannot keep you. Wow!
Right after I heard that I went to have my hair done by an old friend from high school. As I sat there to get my hair done I was telling her about Gods faithfulness through some tough times, and then it hit me - Gods grace is so has kept me, He has held me! As I sat there and talked with her we both got tears in our eyes. Mine were not tears of pain, but tears of joy. What a privlidge it is to serve Jesus. When I follow him, He leads me to still waters (even through the storm). Wow, I'm overwhelmed with His faithfulness, His grace, His love. What an awesome God we serve!
I googled The will of God and ran across this......
The will of God will never take you, where the grace of God cannot keep you, where the arms of God cannot support you, where the riches of God cannot supply your needs, where the power of God cannot endow you.
The will of God will never take you, where the Spirit of God cannot work through you, where the wisdom of God cannot teach you, where the army of God cannot protect you, where the hands of God cannot mold you.
The will of God will never take you, where the love of God cannot enfold you, where the mercies of God cannot sustain you, where the peace of God cannot calm your fears, where the authority of God cannot overrule for you.
The will of God will never take you, where the comfort of God cannot dry your tears, where the Word of God cannot feed you, where the miracles of God cannot be done for you, where the omnipresence of God cannot find you.
Author Unknown
I pray that each one of you will know of His love for you today.

Science Olympia

This weekend the kids (Jacob & Madi) competed in Science Olympia with their science class.

Trenton made a rocket at the Science Mobil

Trenton watching his rocket fly. His rocket went the farthest, and boy was he proud!

Madison and her partner Grace competed in the egg drop. The girls did a great job, but their egg broke...bummer.

The boys waiting in line to shoot their rockets they made.

David and John chillen like rock stars.
Angela & David's neighbor has baby birds in her bush outside of her home.
She let us come look at them last week.
These are the pictures I took that day.
Luke 12:6-7
6) Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God.
7) Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Johns Lungs!

John went to his new Dr. this Tuesday for allergy relief. While he was there the Dr. had him take a test on a breathing machine. After John took the test the nurse told John to wait there because she wanted to get the Dr. to come in and talk with him. Of coarse that scared John since he has a history of lung problems. The Dr. came in and showed John his test results. Johns lung capacity was off the charts (in a good way)!!! He asked John "are you sure you have asthma?". Isn't God so good!?

Trenton's E.E.G

Today our Son Trenton had his first E.E.G done to find out why he is having Seizures. What is an E.E.G You ask? Well here is an explanation - An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that measures and records the electrical activity of your brain. Special sensors (electrodes) are attached to your head and hooked by wires to a computer. The computer records your brain's electrical activity on the screen or on paper as wavy lines. Certain conditions, such as seizures, can be seen by the changes in the normal pattern of the brain's electrical activity.
Trenton had his 1st seizure back in Aug. 08 (for more info go to - He had his 2nd one back in Feb of this year. After an MRI, blood work and finding a Dr. we finally were referred to Valley Children's Hospital for an E.E.G. We know that we may never have the answers to all our questions but we are ok with that. Right now we rest in the fact that Jesus knows and He holds Trenton in His hands. So there I rest...In Him.
For the test today we had to keep Trenton up until 11:00 pm and then woke him up at 4:00 am this morning. I was not looking forward to this because Trenton can be very grumpy and emotional when he doesn't get enough sleep, so can I. But this morning he just popped out of bed and was in such a great mood (Thank you Jesus!). Trenton only cried for a second when we said goodbye to Daddy. He wanted Daddy to come but John had to work. Thankfully he got over that quickly. The ride to Madera from Sanger flew by as Trenton I sang and asked each other questions like - What is your favorite fruit, Color, song and so on. We had a great time together. Once we got into the hospital Trenton said he wanted to go home and at that point I thought he might freak out when we went to the back. When the door opened and the nurse called his name, it was a friendly and familiar voice. It was one of his Sunday School Teachers - Mrs. Sally!!!!! Trenton had a huge grin when he saw her. At that point I knew he was going to be fine. Trenton feel asleep when they needed him to and the test was completed with no complications. What an Awesome God we serve!
We won't know any of the test results for about 2 weeks but I will post more when we do.

I have been shopping for a camera for months now. My Sweet Hubby, My Mother in-law and My Grandma D all pitched to give me money for a camera. My only problem is there are so many to choose from. I am horrible at making big decisions. You should see me at a restaurant trying to order takes forever!... and that is just dinner. So if anyone has any tips on buying a good camera for under $150.00 dollars that would be awesome!

A Wife Prays

I keep this book called "A Wife prays" near by to remind me to pray for my Dear Hubby. When I read this one I felt the Lord wanted me to share this.

Dearest Lord Jesus, day after day
I see my Husband head for work,
and often I know,
by his expressionless face,
that that's the last place he cares to be.
And many's the night that he comes home,
scars of frustration clearly visible.

I know dear Savior, that, to some extent,
he's doing it for me -
to provide a comfortable home
and a measure of security
for the days to come.
I wish I could relieve him of his daily pressures.
I cannot bear his burden,
but I can keep it from being unbearable.

Teach me, Lord, to do my part in helping him
by sharing joyfully and enthusiastically
with him the things we have
rather than dolefully deploring
the things we do not have.
Help me to live contentedly within our income,
so that my spending and his earning
are not competing with each other
making him feel he must constantly drive himself.
Show us both that we do not need a lot
to find true happiness-
as long as we have each other
and as long as we have You.

Though you were rich, Lord Jesus,
yet for our sakes You became poor
that we, through You, might be rich.
Now show us, Lord, how rich we really are.
The highest position
is reigning with You forever.
The peak of wealth
is the crown of eternal glory.
The greatest "in"
is to be acclaimed Your very own.
All this we already have through You.
We also have each other.
Now give us also peace and contentment
that it may truly underlie our daily life
and help us determine our goals and paths.
