Yesterday was a long afternoon, but we were so blessed by the outpouring of love, support, tears, prayers and hugs. The outward demonstration of Gods love for Aaron, Jeremy and me provides strength and encouragement from God. Thank you ....

Reading Joels word this morning is a reminder in our Faithfulness was are in store for the fullness of blessings - that no mind can imagine!
The Fullness of the Blessing
Today's Scripture
"But I know that when I come to you, I shall come in the fullness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ" (Romans 15:29, NKJ).
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Are you living in the fullness of His blessing? God’s blessing is His supernatural empowerment. It is His favor. And we’ve all seen a measure of His blessing, but I believe there is a whole new level He wants to take you to. God has promises and opportunities in store for you that you haven’t even thought of yet! What you’ve seen in the past is only a fraction of what God wants to do in your future. Understand that God likes to outdo Himself. He wants to open doors for you and bring out talents and abilities you didn’t even know you had. Remember, the God we serve is a God of abundance. He is the God of more than enough. Not only does He want to meet your needs, He wants to give you enough to bless other people. That’s living in the fullness of the blessing. Don’t settle where you are. Your destiny is not determined by the economy, by your past, or what anyone else thinks or says. Your destiny is determined by Almighty God. He wants you to tap into a greater measure of His blessing and live the abundant life He has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
Father in heaven, I come before You today with an open and humble heart, ready to receive all You have for me. Teach me to live a life that is pleasing to You so that I can be an example of Your love in the world around me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Yesterday a friend reminded me of a scripture I looked to over the volleyball season for players and myself:
"Don't be afraid; just believe." Mark 5:36B
pray: Jesus, help me to not be afraid when bad things happen, but ratter look to You and have faith that You will work a miracle in my life.
* I know we did not get the specific miracle prayed for with Jeremiah's life, but I do know there are many other miracles surrounding him and his life. One day we will witness them ALL!

Again, thank you all ... we have another big day at hand.
