No Matter What!

I am so grateful for the parents God has given to me. Every night, NO matter how busy we are, we have family Bible time! There have been so many times that they could just have said, “We’re too busy tonight. We’ll just skip Bible time.” But through their faithfulness to Bible time, they just prove even more to me how important that time is! It is such a special time that we have together as a family. We can enjoy some rest from our day’s activities while we learn from God’s Word!

These days before a trip have been very busy, and many things go unexpectedly wrong. We have experienced some sorrows, but the Lord gives us comfort. We have faced seemingly insurmountable obstacles, but the Lord gives solutions. Sarah has spent hours over the last weeks on support calls for computer issues. She has been very determined to find out how to fix her problems and has not given up until she has found the solution! The bus work has provided its own list of challenges.

We are so grateful for your prayers and request that you keep lifting up our trip and the preparations for it! I have been reminded at times lately of the verse.

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28

Truly, everything we do will work together for good! I love how the Lord brings Scripture to mind just when we need it.

John has been a great help on the bus!
Joseph has did a great job covering the side of the refrigerator.

What a cutie!

May you have a blessed new year!

  1. I just want to tell you that whenever I read one of your family posts and see the pictures of each of you with the joy of the Lord on your face, it brings tears to my eyes and a smile to my face.

    By the way, I LOVE the sweet picture of your parents all snuggled up together. Such a picture of love – it is precious.

    Happy New Year to each and every one of you. I can’t ever tell you what a blessing you have been to me over the years. I will continue to pray for you as the Lord brings you to mind.

    Thank you for your faithfulness.

  2. Blessings to you dear family! I love to see the happy, joyful faces on your blog. They are different than what we often see in the world. You are certainly an encouragement to me!
    I will be praying for you on your trip.
    Happy New Year!
    Love in Christ,

  3. I’m not an expert at sewing yet, but what is Anna cutting? Is that interfacing? I’d be too nervous to cut cloth that isn’t laid flat!
    She was actually just trimming a seam 🙂 …

  4. This is a beautiful post you’ve written today. It is such a joy to hear you talk of the love and respect you have for your parents and family.

    Someone once commented to me when seeing my hug my son upon greeting, that I hugged him as if I hadn’t seen in months. My response was that I always hug my children as if I hadn’t seen them in months because it’s always a joy and a blessing to see them, and I am filled ith that much love for them. This is the feeling I get that you all share as a family too.

    I am looking forward to your travels and hope to see you in Federal Way. Since we’ve moved, we are literally right next door 🙂

    Keeping you all, and Uriah in our prayers.

    Blessings, Mrs. Mari

  5. Anna,

    We, too, are grateful for your parents. It is they that taught my husband “no matter what!” We are so thankful for their teaching!! We are praying for your trip and all the preparations.
