Standing Firm

You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. Genesis 50:20

"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."
That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties.
For when i am weak then I AM STRONG.
2 Corinthians 12: 9-10

We approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:16

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.

Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,

but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers, of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Therefore put on the full armor of God,

so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground,

and after you have done everything, to stand.

Stand firm when, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

And pray in the Spirit, which is the word of God.

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayer requests.

With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

Ephesians 6:10-18

Bon Appetit!

Oh, does this boy LOVE to eat!
He can't hardly wait for you to scoop another bite out.
He opens his mouth and reaches like a little bird.
Oh so cute!

News Update** My little man is ooohhhh so cranky! He has finally cut his 2 bottom teeth. They are just barely poking through. He has an awful runny stopped up nose and has slept about 1 hour today. Needless to say, I AM EXHAUSTED! Hoping this means he will sleep ALL NIGHT!
Yea right!

Meet the Benny Pig!

We set on an adventure for a new pet. We tried a dog and quickly realized we are NOT dog people. We love our cat but he is getting old and not a lot of fun. So, we decided to get a TURTLE... that is until we realized it was a little more complicated than just putting a turtle in a cage. So, we researched guinea pigs- fun, loving, cuddly, rare to bite or scratch... sounded like a perfect match (except that it is a rodent!). Off to the pet store we went. We had 3 to choose from and this little rodent was calling our name:) We scooped him up before anyone else got him (yes we were not the only ones looking to purchase a rodent!). Colin was so excited to hold his benny pig and so then his name was born- Benny Pig. Colin thinks it is so funny to have a benny pig named Benny Pig:) As we approach our one week anniversary with BP, I must say, he has been a pretty well behaved pet. The kids play with him everyday and clean his cage and when I say kids I mean Bethany (my sweet, responsible one). So far, so good!
