"Oh The Plans I Have For You, Says the Lord."
I love how a seed is planted and when the soil is right, the watering is right, and all the other conditions are right......the plant starts coming out of the ground. And, to put icing on the cake, Ruth is in her dream job as a Registered Nurse in Pediatric ICU. I love that serving and helping others is what this young couple is about.
My prayer for my children and my grandchildren is, and always has been, that they find their heart's desire, their passion, that they dream big and see those dreams become reality. I pray that they all grow into men/women devoted to God, to family and to living a full and inspiring life. There is nothing they can't do, nothing they can't dream, nothing they can't aspire to. They are my gifts, my treasures, my dreams and I pray they will always know just how much they are loved by God AND me.
Perhaps you have dreams for yourself and your family today -- all it takes is a seed. Keep watering those seeds with prayers and encouragement and hope and GREAT expectation. Keep your eyes open....the little shoot will come up soon!

It was just "puppy love" that brought my Honey and I together at the ages of 13 and 12. We eventually married at the "mature" ages of 18 and 17. And that's when our faith journey began. Over the years, we encountered many opportunities to stretch our faith, especially when our babies were very sick, when financial situations were out of control, and when our marriage relationship had some rocky periods.But we made it through those times by our strong faith and trust in God. But never was our faith more challenged, than when my 63 years "young" husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 Kidney Cancer. Fortunately, the 44 years of marriage and faith-building experiences, caused us to "weather the storm", and still remain in peace and strong in our faith. This "peace that passed understanding" compelled me to blog and share the principles that caused our faith to be unwavering and continues to give me the joys of living large! I'm still here, so I'm not done!. I pray you will grow in your faith as you, not only read the blogs, but apply the principles to your own life -- for the good times, and especially for those times that seem so overwhelming.
