The last two Sundays, the message was about wading out a little deeper into the level God would like to take you spiritually. Both messages were based on Luke 5.  We have been blessed beyond measure both times.  Last Sunday we were blessed because we had just moved to an old house in town the day before, heading into the unknown of what our life will be like now.  This Sunday, we were blessed again because we found out during our first week in town that our beautiful house in the country indeed did not sell.     Now we feel we are plunged into even deeper water.  The question I battled last week was, "Why do we feel God's goodness so much more when things are going how we think they should?"  God is still good even when things don't work out according to plan I know this, but it is a lot harder to believe.  This is what grows our faith in God; Faith that God provides exactly what is needed at the right time; Faith enough to say thank you to God for what He is doin

Scared the stuffing right out of us watching...  That is not a moon on this photo.  I think its a water spot on the camera lens. Wish I could claim the moon theory. A nice surprise.  Hardwood floors. We might uncover the kitchen eventually, but for now we just have to paint and get moved in. Laife turned 14 in the midst...   This graffiti is in Laife's bedroom o
