A Hope for our Children

And the little ones that you said would be taken captive, your children who do not yet know good from bad—they will enter the land. I will give it to them and they will take possession of it.
Deutoronomy 1:39

The Video is with sally and our friends and neighbors, Jonathan and Lauren Ramirez. This is fun to see Sally trying to walk to rope, but to me it is such a picture of how community has given me so much encouragement as a mom.

There have been many (a lot of them 10 yrs younger than stew and I) come along our family and into our life. These people have hearts that burn to know and spread Jesus all the days of their lives. They have given me so much hope for my children's generation and are coming along side of Stew and I to mentor and confirm what we are teaching our children of the Lord. When I see the Ramirezs helping Sally across the rope and cheering her on and reaching out to her and celebrating with her, I find so much more...I find hope for my daughter... daughters.... son... children.... that there will be many beside them after I am long gone to continue to help them walk with Christ. We love you Ramirezs! And so many many who surround our lives right now.....we are so overwhelmed at all of you! You help us raise our faces to the King and keep on. thank you...

We will not fear for our children but pray them into the hands of our Mighty God and King and trust that He will lead them into His kingdom and, precious believers give us hope of that....

Happy Spring and a Great Easter!

We enjoyed an easter egg hunt last saturday downtown at our old favorite park...Zilker! And this year WesleyGrant really got into the "Jesus is risen" thing. Though i couldn't find my "tomb recipe", so we had to use playdough. This Easter morning was truly filled with a sense of praise that our King was alive! It has set us in to spring here in Austin! Easter day was full of fun times with neighbors, friends and family over for Easter dinner...GREEK food! so fun!
