Have Panda, will travel and PLEASE pray!

     When my daughter started to bible college one of the first people she met was Mandi Thompson.  They later became suite mates and friends.  Over the years we have gotten to know her better and have the privilege to watch her grow, get married to Sam Abrams and have their daughter Jocelyn.  Sam was called to be a missionary and they have been on deputation for a couple of years.  We are proud to help support them financially and prayerfully as they go to Hong Kong and do God's work and will.  
     Jocelyn almost always has her toy panda with her everywhere she has gone, including today they left on their journey to their field in Hong Kong. This morning, Mandi posted on facebook...."Got the panda, our 12 bags, & our sanity (I think!) It was a blessing to have our friends & family at the airport. Lots of tears, good thing no makeup;) Great weather to fly! Answer to prayer! Now, please pray for a calm baby and all our luggage to arrive together! #HKBOUND #GOTTHEPANDA".  
     We will continue to pray for them and I would appreciate it if you could also say a prayer for them if they cross your mind.  Thanks so much and .....

God bless,
Pat

Happy 16th Birthday Stephen Austin Love!

From this little baby born on April 7, 1995 to the wonderful young man you have became April 7, 2011 Moma and Daddy were so blessed the day you were born and grow more blessed with each passing year.  I pray God will richly bless you this year.  Let Him be your guide and follow Him and do His will and you will be right where you need to be.  We love you! God bless, Moma & Daddy

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.  
God bless,
Pat


Faith Over Fear! I Choose Faith!

I have been feeling overwhelmed and stressed for quite some time.  I have tried so many ways to make it better and even tried just giving up.  I have been doing lots of praying, talking to friends and even more talking to God.  I am now choosing faith over fear.  Faith over the fear I am not good enough; faith over the fear that God doesn't love me; faith over the fear of what other people think; faith over choosing the world and the lie of busyness to not make time for me and God.

     There have been hurricanes, tornadoes and floods over much of the country.  They are devastating and people think they can never overcome this.The storms of life are much the same.They are hard and devastating and we will like things are beyond our understanding and out of our life is out of control.This is where faith comes in.  We have to have faith in what we cannot see, what we can not understand and in God.  We have to choose faith over fear.


     Faith comes in trusting God and that He wan…
