great week....

Well it has been a great week. The Waites are blessed. Bryan got a new drum set so he is in the zone learning new beats and waiting for me to set him up with drum lessons. Lauren has a game tonight against Runnels. Hosanna girls are having a great district season. Tonight is a big game and I pray they do their best. God is stirring some things in my life and I am trying to listen and just enjoy the Lord. I know he is leading by His Spirit and I want to be careful to do what he says.

I have had several calls about people's lives that have been touched through the ordeal our family has walked through. I say YEAH!!!! God will ALWAYS take the things in life that seem horrible and work it for a greater good. If we could wrap our minds around that and approach difficult situations from the perspective of realizing that good can come from this then our difficult situation may be bearable.

Lord I pray for those that read this blog that you would move mightily in their lives. If anyone has not turned their lives over to you and trusted you for salvation, I pray that the reality of your sacrifice would be brought to their attention. Lord, Jesus thank you so much for your desire to be active and involved in our lives. There is nothing like walking with you and reading your word and living the exciting life that you have set before us. God keep us mindful of eternity and the things that really matter. We want to know your heart and see things the way you see them. We chose to die to ourselves, our own desires, and plans and surrender to you and your plans. LORD HAVE YOUR WAY. In Jesus name amen.

Hey girl... I know I'm a week late telling you this, but I really appreciated the word you gave last Sunday... It's on the church website under the recorded message from last Sunday. I was happy it was there so I could hear it again. Anyhow, you guys have a blessed week... Love, Kayla

P.S. Your hair looked cute this morning :^)

Robin,

I stumbled across George's blog a while back, probably a year and a half ago. My name is Lesley. You and I used to work together a long time ago at the call center. It's such a small world. George's blog was almost addicting for me. I lost my step-dad to cancer in 2000 and their physical journeys were really,really similar. Both your and George's faith, strength and love for each other and our GOD still amazes me daily. George taught me lessons that I never dreamed possible. It is humbling to have "known" him, even if only through his blog. I became a Christian in 2004 and my life has not been the same since, praise God! I'm so happy that you decided to keep the blog going... it is truly a blessing for so many different people.

Your words speak such truth. I'm reminded of one of my favorite songs...Blessed Be Your Name...

Every blessing You pour out I’ll turn back to praise
And when the darkness closes in Lord
Still I will say

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

Blessed be Your name when the sun’s shining down on me
When the world’s “all as it should be”
Blessed be Your name
And blessed be Your name on the road marked with suffering
Though there’s pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name

You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, blessed be Your name

I pray that you continue to find comfort in God's love for you and your family... that is all you need. All of you continue to be in my prayers...

Lesley
