"How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word. With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from you commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you." Psalm 119:9-11

Why do we try to conform God to our will? Live in His word and know true joy.

God reveals the truth of our time and all time to us through Scripture.

More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb."
Psalm 19:7-10

All the laws in all the books in all the libraries of the world are but a footnote to the law of God.

Fundraiser

Please, I know that we recently went through a very difficult process with fostering the twins and having them removed from our home only to be placed in another foster home.  The heart ache was tremendous, but by the same time it opened up our hearts and our eyes again to the God given desire that is in our hearts.  Handsome and I believe God has impressed upon our hearts to adopt yet again, but the only trouble is that with us still paying our first two adoption loans off we are unable to do it without the help of family and friends.  We are not asking you specifically to give financially (though if you want to you are more than welcome to!)  But we are asking you, our family and friends to consider doing a fundraiser on our behalf. 

Some of you have seen the heart ache that our children go through when they attach to a child in foster care and then they are removed from our home.  We start foster care for the purpose of adopting and when it was just Handsome and myself that was a real possibility, but now with two 3 1/2 year old children whos hearts and emotions are being brought into the picture we just cannot continue to walk that path.  I am not saying we are done fostering forever, but we will be accepting cases with great discresion. 

So please, think about what your church, your community, your office, your friends, your family might be able to do to help out a family that without your help may not be able to grow.  God is AWESOME and I know through Him all things are possible, but I also know He can use each one of you to help us! 

Some ideas would be to have a rummage sale, an ice cream social, a spaghetti supper, the sky is the limit!  We do have $200 from the fundraiser we did last Spring still sitting in savings waiting for the remaining $26800 to join in. 

If you would be willing to help us out, or have any questions please let us know!  If you are unable to help either financially or with a fundraiser, please pray!  If the twins being in our home taught us anything it is that our family is still missing someone, we are not yet complete!  Our children loved having babies in the house!

Thank you for taking time to consider and pray about helping our family on our decision to continue and persue another adoption through the agency we worked on Princess' adoption!
