We are a family of fifteen: eight already with Jesus and seven in desperate need of Him. This is the story God is writing in our lives. Proverbs 16:9

Fun Packing

I was packing this morning, the boys helping, going through and putting away stuff. This quote has been hanging in Andrew's room since before he was born. He was named after Andrew Fuller, one of Micah's favorite pastors in history, and he and I wanted to share a bit of his life and ministry with him. We found this quote from one of his sermons and thought it such a sweet summation of the kind of life we desire for our little boy- and for Elijah as well. Little did I know that today, Rev. Fuller's words would bring me much encouragement. I thought I would share them with you as well as share a few pics of the boys playing, not with their toys, but with a box!

In your journey to the heavenly world,
you will have much to do,
much to oppose, and it may be,
much to suffer; but by a life of faith
on him in whom you first believed,
you will find strength equal to your day.
Duties will be pleasant,
temptations will be overcome, and the
sufferings of this present life will
work a far more exceeding and eternal
weight of glory.
