We have been moving out of the missions house in Zachary to a new place in Clinton the past few days. Actually I am in a hurry now as we prepare to leave for Sri Lanka next week. So a whole lot of hard work is happening at around us these days. First we built a big storage room at my dad's barn in Mississippi in the searing hot heat. All in all a good investment as Sandy said she had enough of giving away all her furniture. I did not over rule this time...
This picture is of my most awesome favorite mother in law in the whole world! Her and Sandy both love to move furniture... I mean serious like therapy. I just stand in awe as they move it and move it back, then move it some more. It is so funny to experience their creativity. So cool to see Proverbs 31 come to life in these great women.
So pray for us as we move... change is a challenge but well worth the effort to allow to God to use you for his glory.

O Lord, you are my God;
I will exalt you and praise your name,
for in perfect faithfulness
you have done marvelous things,
things planned long ago.

When I was a little boy growing up in Jackson, LA. My mom got me to enter the local high school's talent show sponsored by the Future Business Leaders of Louisiana (FBLA). Innocent and young but emboldened with a personality of expression, I belted out the rendition of "He's got the whole world in his hands". Little did I know the performance would bring the house down and I would go home with my first trophy the winner of the FBLA talent contest. As I read the scripture in Isaiah 25:1 this AM my thoughts raced back to God's plan for my life. Such a wave of emotion and thankfulness swept over my soul as I bowed in worship. Jesus is so faithful and worthy of praise!
