One lesson Justin has taught me is that, it's not about me. A lot of times we all get caught up in how sad WE are, or how lonely WE are, or whatever WE feel, but recently it's in those moments that I remember...it's just not about me....it's about God or about others. God has been our Provider, Companion, Guide, and Patient Teacher. He has began to teach us a lot through our Sunday School and through experiences, that it's all about His love and how He has shown that to us. I am breathless and speechless when I consider all that He has done in us, for us, and through us!! He's totally in control and I can't think of a better place for us to be than in His will.
Please pray for:
-Baby Charlie and Anna Claire's growth and health.
-Justin's dad's safe trip home in August.
-Rebekah's job opportunities in Texas.
-Peace and comfort from God through all these changes.
-An acquaintance that recently lost one of their two twins before birth and the other is in critical condition.
-All our friends who are beginning marriage soon and those who are adding little ones to their families :)
We're three days away!!! Thank you so much for all your encouragement and prayers. Hope you each are enjoying the beautiful summer weather and the fun summer vacations!! (below is a pic from our Memorial Weekend trip to Edisto...it was BEAUTIFUL and relaxing!)
