me again...

Hopefully tomorrow George will feel like catching you guys up with a few words of his own. I know y'all really like to hear from him.

Well today was the first day of school for me and the kids. WOW!! It was a great day. It was the first day of Lauren's Senior Year. I can't believe the time has flown so quickly. I know many of you have already walked this road with you kids and many have little ones. Just hold on to every second. Easier said than done. I remember with Bryan thinking how the time had escaped me with Lauren and I tried my best to make special note of things he would say and do. The problem is that time has a way of erasing some of those subtle moments that you think you will never forget. That is why video cameras are so great. They can capture those special moments.

We again purpose by the leadership of the Holy Spirit to live our lives ONE DAY at a time. God's grace is so sufficient for that one day. His power to sustain in the midst of the storm is beyond comprehension. Winds blow, tears flow, but God has a way of centering us with such an abiding peace. Stay the course, keep the faith, and when you have done all to stand...STAND.

Good Morning Robin,
We all do love to hear from George but hearing from you is a blessing as well. Sometimes we don't hear from you often and the words you send out is so encouraging to many of us. Tell George take his time in writing and I promise not to give him a hard time. Praying and believing that the Fire of God will consume his body and burn up all that needs to be gone in the Name of Jesus. Love you all Gayle

"...The Lord watches over those who fear Him, those who rely on His unfailing love.
He rescues them from death and keeps them alive in times of famine. We depend on the Lord alone to save us. Only He can help us,protecting us like a shield. In Him our hearts rejoice,for we are trusting in His holy name. Let Your unfailing love SURROUND us, Lord,for our hope is in You alone.:
Psalm 33:18-22 NLT
Praying for the unfailing love of the Lord to SURROUND George,Robin,Lauren and Bryan we STAND with you all...

To obey is better than sacrifice, and our position of "remaining" in faith and trust is equivelant to standing or waiting, and the eye has seen no God other than YAH "who acts for the one who waits for Him." You guys KNOW THAT YOU KNOW your God, therefore your dependance on Him is where He will find you! He is the one who "crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle's!" Continue on, children, the Lord your God is with you and He "is ready (watching, for the occasion) to perform His Word. We are waiting and watching with you, dear ones!
May His Grace and Lovingkindness be your strength and joy and you stand. Love and prayers, BK

Lately, I have given a lot of thought to something that I believe would be defined as a characteristic of God. That characteristic would be "God's Fulness of time". I have often wondered why so many faithful people could pray and it would "appear" that the Lord had not heard. Often, that false illusion would be fueled by my own natural vision and timeline regarding the "expected answer" to such prayers. In reflection, I can't help but consider the multitude of references throughout God's word about the timing of God. Jesus reply to his mother that, "dont you know, I must be about my Father's business" drips of God's timing; the man at the pool of Bethesda, many years did he faithfully come for healing? The Isrealites 700 years of prayer for freedom from bondage and slavery, the woman with the issue of blood spending almost everything she had to try to find a cure and then one day....HE came...(God's perfect timing); and then there is the Mt. Everest of timing when the words were spoken..."It is finished"! Lord, with expectant hearts we wait on You, as we all STAND and wait for your "fulness of time" concerning my wonderful brother and your faithful and loving child, George.
Praise Your name!

Welcome home brother George.
The Love of the Lord spills out on the Waites family. Though we do not understand the mysteries of the Lord's timing or purposes, we do know one thing: He IS LORD!
He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, all that we ask or think.

His ways are HIGHER than ours. His plans are more reliable. In His mercy and grace HE hears every prayer and petition brought forth and INDEED He will not turn away an answer. We trust because we KNOW the character of the LORD is GOODNESS!
Be good to your servant George O'Lord according to your plans and purposes for him. We TRUST you, and give him to YOU. May his vesell continue steadfast in FAITH towards You and may your love continue to flow out of his spirit. You are IN him with much evidence by him.
Those who have known him have known You. Those who have spoken to him, have spoken to You. Those who have spent time with him, have spent time with You. Those who have layed hands on him, have layed hands on YOU.
We WAIT, knowing,trusting and believing that You will bring forth the "greater" purposes for George's life.
