Any one who know Amy and I, knows that we have been a little stressed lately with a lot of different things.

About a year a go we had "perfect" plan and everything was going to be great. Fast forward....WOW.

Amy says it all time "Everything happens for a reason." Were we just to comfortable when we got a kick in the ass that pushed us off course? Is it a test? Probably, but Why? Build character? To reinstate who really holds the power?

I heard this quote from the bible, on TV, several months ago and can't stop thinking about it.

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Please help Amy and me to really hear this verse, help us battle through the difficult times and love the lord even more when things turn around.

I think you need to come hang out with us for a weekend! Daryl I heard a pastor say that getting knocked off our "center" is one way that God uses to bring us back to him. Until we we are in a place where we things don't make sense, many of us think we can just do as we please without looking back to the giver of all good things. Having experienced this feeling you are having I know, it's much better to grab a tight hold onto Jesus than to try and figure it all out yourself. We love you guys and we are praying for you! It's good to ask God why, but make sure you are listening to his answers. Even if they are not the answers you expected or wanted.
