"And now...one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise...Then the God of peace will be with you." -Phillipians 4:8-9

Here's to a new day

Praises, praises that today is a new day, and everywhere we look there are blessings to be found.

There are so many friends and family that we love that are going through hurts and hardships right now in their lives. We lift them up in prayer with faith that the Lord will be their comfort, and that His peace and love will be felt in all situations.

We pray for our friends abroad, the Smiths and Durans who have been so faithful with the work that has been laid for them in Peru. Thank you for all that you are doing, we love you guys and pray for you daily, and we think the world of you!

My heart was comforted today by 1 Peter. After yesterday we felt so wiped out emotionally, and after being faced with what is ahead with Kasey's treatments it is so easy for us to feel overwhelmed. We will continue to praise, to love, to rejoice and look ahead with positivity because of our faith, and the knowledge that we are loved and that this is all part of a bigger plan.

"So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and in his good time he will honor you. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about what happens to you. " -1 Peter 5:6-7

So here's to a new day with the knowledge that, " If you are suffering according to God's will, keep on doing what is right and trust yourself to the God who made you, for he will never fail you. " 1 Peter 4:19

  1. Psalm 107:28-30

    Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble,
    and He brought them out of their distress.

    He stilled the storm to a whisper;
    the waves of the sea were hushed.

    They were glad when it grew calm,
    and He guided them to their desired haven.

    Wishing you peace in your journey! Hugs!!!!
