"For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being ROOTED and grounded in LOVE, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the LOVE of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen."

Last Minute Details
This verse has really helped Sean and I as we were days away from flying to South America. God has been faithful in so many ways as worked long days and nights preparing for our family to leave the country. Times when our energy was depleted or unknowns to leaving the States were discovered - God always made a way through his word or people to push us another day.
The encouraging emails, calls, visits, stopping in to help our family with the last minute details...we could have not done this alone. Thank you God for never giving up on us or leaving us stranded when there seemed to be no solution. Thank you God for the individuals you put in our path that helped teach us to depend on you - DAILY and in everything we do.
And when we were just hours away from departure after many nights of little sleep...and in the wee hours of the night packing bags one more time to sort through the necessities...we want to thank you all for the encouraging calls, facebook, text, and visits to let us know that you were praying for us. Thank you to our family and friends who dropped everything to help us finish all the "last minute details".
May God Bless You All!
