"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."

Sunday Walk to Church
"...and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." - Matthew 28:20b
How quickly life will pass us all by...for no one knows the hour that they will take their last breath here on this earth.
"Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming--in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning-" - Mark 13:35
Unfortunately, we quickly let our day to day struggles, worries, and little (unimportant) things get in our way of spending time with Him and sharing His love and grace with others. Sean and I continue to look back on most of our lives...missed opportunities...and living day by day for us. God, please open our eyes and help us to follow You...wherever You may lead. Lord, help us to take one day at a time to do Your will. Please God, help hearts around us to be open to loving and following You. Lord, help us to not hold any prejudices or pride as You teach us to love our new brothers and sisters. In Your Name we pray, Amen.
