On This Hot Summer Day . . .

. . . as we grieve our nation's leaders continuing to lead our country
 further from God's good ways,
we still have great hope,
knowing that He is sovereign over all!
"Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power
and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, O Lord, is the kingdom;
you are exalted as head over all."
1 Chronicles 29:11
So, we will press on,
as we strive to daily
walk humbly with our God;
seek His face;
ask for His forgiveness of our sins;
pray for His mercy;
 rely on His strength to fight the good fight of faith;
serve Him and others with gladness;
pursue holiness;
trust in Him with all our hearts and lean not on our own understanding;
find out what pleases Him and . . .
do good, for His glory.
We will . . .

"Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness."
Psalm 37:3
 The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul.
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is pure,
enduring forever.
The decrees of the Lord are firm,
and all of them are righteous.
Psalm 19:7-9
"For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts
are fully committed to him."
2 Chronicles 16:9

"Learn to do good.
Seek justice.
Help the oppressed.
Defend the cause of orphans.
Fight for the rights of widows."
Isaiah 1:17
We received our first referral today for a little boy in need of a forever family! 
We're waiting to hear if we will be one of the 3 families to be considered and interviewed in the process of finding him a loving home.
"Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger,
but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord."
Ephesians 6:4 
Daddy and the older 3 boys left today for the father/son campout
 that some friends are hosting in Oregon.
(Daddy and Kyle were honored and humbled
to be asked to give the Fri. night and Sat. morning devotions.)
Praying they will all be greatly blessed!

Amen! Those hay boys are looking good! :-) Jumping into the water also looks like a lot of fun... Especially on such a hot day!

I'll be praying that this opportunity with the little boy will work out and that you all would be able to have an impact in his life soon!
