I love the crisp air, the smells of fall, yummy soups and warm comfort food, the beautiful changing of the leaves, and of course, it is the time for our ANNUAL ANNIVERSARY TRIP... so looking forward to it this year!!!!!
We recently was blessed to spend some family time, going to the water park, and camping with some of our family. We were also blessed with a free trip to the race in Bristol. This included tickets to the race,and a hospitality pack from Auto Zone. We got to meet Joey Lagano, and got to see some beautiful things. The race was awesome too..

I just want to share some good news from our family.. over the past month we have had our nephew come home from Cali and get married, a cousin , who we have prayed for a long time, accept Jesus into his life, and also we had a fabulous time on our annual family BEACH vacay.. also, we snuck in a little weekend getaway camping trip...so, I am happy to share this good news..also, I went to the doctor for a checkup, and my labs were okay, only one thing is still not like my doctor wants, but I am still working on improving that with diet, exercise, and a little white pill.. so I think when I go back in a month, it will be even better.. praise the Lord!!

Psalm 68:19King James Version (KJV)19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
We were talking on the way home from graduation... I was saying how I really wonder if this crossed the graduates minds.... they just spent an hour and half with their classmates... and they WILL NEVER all be together again... What kind of impact did they have on each other?? What thing would they remember about one another??? The Lord spoke to my heart about taking things for granted... the little things that I EXPECT to always be there.. They could all be taken away in an instant!!!!! I am so thankful for a Christian family, and for parents who always made sure we did NOT do without!! I am thankful for the most simple things.. home, AIR, FOOD, water, power.. we take all of this for granted. I am so proud of the future that God has in store for Ben and also for Madison, his girlfriend.. who is already a huge part of our family. I just can't wait to see how God is going to use them....
John 15:7King James Version (KJV)7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
Praying for the Will of God in their lives.. and I am praying too that the Lord will keep this dear classmate of theirs safe, and maybe through all of this the Light of Jesus continues to shine around this young boy..
When you have a chance.. make a choice to make a difference.. you NEVER know what will become of it.. Live every second.. because you never know what tomorrow holds... we are Still Blessed!!

Over the past few months, my family and I prayed, that if it be His will, for my sister to be cancer free, that He would allow it. He chose to answer our prayer. So glad that we can say this... but what if He had not.. We still would have prayed right, cause we wanted it to be the Lord's will for my sis. If He would have chose NOT to heal her, it would have been hard, but we still would know it was not His will to do so.. and would have moved forward as a family. As hard as it could be, we would have to accept HIS will, and move forward with the next step, but I am so glad He chose to answer our prayers.
I know when you see this,it seems kind of crazy..
But do you have unanswered prayers??? Have you prayed for something and you have NOT got an answer from God yet?? It is hard.. but very easy to give up and say you are not going to pray about it any more, but really, it is all in God's time. God knows exactly WHAT you need, WHEN you need it. His timing is perfect.

I ask today that you pray for my sister. She returned to work today after being out since November. I ask that you specifically pray for her feet. She has been having severe pain and numbness and tingling all from the chemo.
She goes for her scan on April 24th. This will determine if the chemotherapy has worked and they will go from there as to deciding what is next. The Lord is able and has been so good thus far and has helped her and us, her family get through this. We know the prayers from our family, friends, and Church family is
what has helped. WE CAN FEEL THEM.
Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise. Jeremiah 17:14
So thankful for the time that we have got to spend together these past few months. We have had some fun times,and would not have got to do these things if she would have been at work. So thankful today for what He has done and what He. Is going to do!!! Love ya Sis!!! My hero. . Lady full of God's grace!!!! ♡♡♡

We had a great and Blessed Easter. It was a fun time with family and a wonderful Easter service at Church both Sunday morning and night. The Lord blessed and it was wonderful to know that He is still alive on Monday morning!
We took lots of pics. I will share those in another post.
Our family is much in prayer. We really believe and trust God for healing. The Lord sees and knows ALL things and is ABLE to heal her, according to His will.That is what our family wants is the Lord's will. The Lord has been so good to our family already through all of this. We are so overwhelmed of the stories we have heard from other cancer patients and the support that has been shown through our extended family and our very best friends. The Lord gives peace, and we know as a family, we can make it with His help.
Psalm 23:1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
I love this verse, simply because He gives the promise of providing. He has provided for her and her family through all of this,and WILL continue to do so. He has kept her in His care.Even on her worst days, they could have been much worse.
Psalm 23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leader me beside the still waters.
In this verse, He gives rest and peace, a peace knowing that either way, it is going to be fine. Chemotherapy is complete and now we can rest and trust for His providing of Healing.
He's able, He's able, I know HE'S able! I know my Lord is able to carry me through. He heals the broken hearted, and sets the captives free, He made the lame to walk again, and He caused the blind to see, He's able, He's able! I know HE'S able! ! I know my Lord is able to carry me through! !
Trusting and praying for the promise of Healing today and also praying for a dear cousin is going through chemotherapy treatments for a new diagnosis of Cancer too.
The good Shepherd is able to heal His sheep.Join our family and Church family as we pray for these needs.
***** We bought these shirts the other day when we were out shopping. We really believe the Lord has something great on the horizon! ! And He is able and either way, She is an AMAZING , beautiful testimony of God's grace!! I am so proud of her!!! *****
