Disappointing...

I got a call this afternoon that the clerk/registrar did not show up to work today at the courthouse. Therefore we could not get our ruling. We now have to wait until Monday. Upon hearing this news, I was immediately reminded of Habakkuk 2:3. "Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay." God has an appointed day, and I will wait in hope for that day.
Keep Praying. Do not be discouraged. Our God is still awesome, great, sovereign, and faithful.

Jenny and Family,

Sometimes it is so hard to understand what God has planned. However, His plans are always bigger and better than we can ever imagine! You are in my prayers often!

Jenny,

As always, I am encouraged by your faith. And I LOVE all of the pictures, especially the ones of you and your beautiful children. God bless you all.

"All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God." 2 Cor 4:15

On my knees for you,
Erinn

Day to day, struggle after struggle, and moment after moment I look to him for his full story. I do carry comfort with me because we all know how this big story ends. But It is the details along the way that show us what a personal GOD we have. He takes a personal intrest in each of us and in our walk with him. Jenny after alot of prayer for you and your family, I honestly can say I rest in the comfort of knowing the end to your story. I am excited, scared, joyful, worried, and blessed to learn every detail until then.
I also know this, God has given me chances to share your story with some of our friends who are not saved. And the are watching closly waiting in the wings to see "our God not come through" Boy, will they be surprised. Jesus beat death, sin, and the grave. He will surly bring home a lady and her two new babies.
We love you
We are praying for you
Thank you for blessing us

"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me-put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you." (Phil. 4:8-9)

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perserverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart." (Heb. 12:1-3)

"Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many." (Heb. 12:14-15)

"Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our 'God is a consuming fire.'" (Heb. 12:28-29)

"Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise-the fruit of lips that confess his name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased." (Heb. 13:15-16)

"May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen." (Heb. 13:20-21)

I love you.

I still love you, and will never stop. My love for you has grown incredibly through this walk with you. Thank you for being full of integrity, passion, and love for Christ. You constantly remind me, even without words, of who God created me and our family to be.
