So glad Jesus is holding my hand...praying for James & Cheri...

One of these days when I have the time to sit I’d like to write about my experiences with starting Kid Connection…the ups & downs…the spiritual battles…for now I’m just soooo thankful that Jesus is walking with me holding my hand. The last couple weeks of Kid Connection have been great. I’ve been way more relaxed, it’s gone more smoothly, etc…but I don’t want to get comfortable in that & allow the devil to gain a foothold. I know that he doesn’t like what’s going on & I need to stay on guard & giving it all to God. Anyway, I’m just saying thank you Jesus…please help me to keep leaning on you & not let go!

I can’t believe it’s less than a week till James & Cheri move to Oslo, Norway! I’m so torn. I’m so happy for them…the new adventure…the great job for James that he loves…of all places having it be in Norway (family heritage)… Yet at the same time I’m going to miss them so much. I guess that’s what happens when you have such a wonderful family of “in-laws” that are more like just family than “laws”J There is so much in my heart that I can’t put into words, so I will just say…thank you Lord for giving me such wonderful sister & friend in Cheri…thank you for all the memories that we have together…all the heart to heart talks…please protect James, Cheri, & Max as they travel & settle in to their new home…please comfort them on days when they’re lonely…please put a hedge of protection around them as they seek to do what You are leading them to…guide them as they raise Max to know & love you…give them wisdom…help them to make friends Lord…people to help them feel more at home & loved by You…thank you Jesus that I can leave James & Cheri & Max in your hands. Amen.
