Picture Update

It has been a few weeks since I last posted some pictures so here you go...

Sorry mom but I still think that hat makes her look like a gangster.

Elizabeth's first rose from daddy on her 6th month birthday. 
(Ok, so it was the second rose. we never got the picture with the first one.)

We were able to put in carpet in our basement!!

We have been waiting to do this for over a year.

 Donnie & Sean Nelson were a big help with the carpet. Even when there was nothing that they could do they kept Elizabeth happy. Keeping her happy was a HUGE plus!!

I'm glad with a Job well done!

But the LORD was with Joseph

20And Joseph's master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king's prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison.
 21But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

What else could go wrong for Joseph? His brothers hate him and sell him as a slave. He is in a foreign land without any comfort. His boss has just thrown him in prison on false charges. Everything humanly was against Joseph and yet he had one thing going for him He had favor with Jehovah. 

Life will be unfair and harsh. People will let you down, friends will turn on you, finances will fail you but no matter what happens God is there. Do you have the same favor with God that Joseph had or have you allowed things to get in the way?

When I sit in darkness the Lord shall be a light unto me Micah 7:8

When I sit in darkness the Lord shall be a light unto me
     Micah 7:8

If you are willing to choose the seeming darkness of faith instead of the illumination of reason, wonderful light will break out upon you from the Word of God.
