Timely Encouragement!

I love my little daily devotional on my blog! Yes...I love it because a times the message is so encouraging and just what I need to hear! Todays message just strengthens and encourages me to keep the faith and keep believing that God will provide the way where there seems to be no way. I believe that God is going to provide for us to bring Jailynn home. I do not know when, how, or where, but I know that He will. I am sorry that I bring this up...but these are my thoughts and where I am at right now. We have run short on the money we need for many reasons, but God is the one that has called us to keep these two precious girls together, and he will enable us to do it. He will provide more than enough. I believe it with all my heart. I will letyou know how he does it and how the miracles happen! Read the below message on that is on the devotional:
Willing, Ready, Enabled

Hebrews 11:11 NIV: By faith Abraham, even though he was past age-and Sarah herself was barren-was enabled to become a father because he considered him faithful who had made the promise.

We hold in our hearts a great and remarkable power. It is a power that overcomes adversity and brings us victory over the most difficult of situations. It is a power that is found simply through complete trust in Christ, with the smallest of things unto the greatest. There will be times that God will ask something of us. It may be to do a ministerial work, or to simply extend His grace to someone in need. Sometimes His call comes to us when we least expect it--when we are at our weakest. We wonder where we will find what we need to do what He asks. But even as He asks, He also enables. He does not ask you to have all the answers, or to find it within yourself to do His work. For "my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." He simply asks that you be willing to do what He asks, ready to follow Him, and that you trust Him. He will enable. He will equip. And He will provide.

My GuestBook

Hi! I am glad you are visiting my blog! Please sign my guestbook or leave me a comment. It will mean so much to me, Jordyn and Jailynn!

The rest of our family

In case anyone was curious: Here are som pictures of my oldest son, Joey and his family. Joey and Kym have three children: my beloved grandbabies: Hayden 4yrs old, Noah 22 months old, and Phoenix 9 months old. We have been helping Joey and Kym get on their feet and they have been living with us since December. They are now able to get their own place and will move out in April. I will miss them and miss the babies. I will just have to babysit!

God Is Awesome!



I am Praising God tonight because He has Heard my cries and answered my prayers. We have recieved a generation donation from a wonderful family toward our fund raising efforts. We have also recieved generous donations from wonderful people through this website and through Jailynn's Prayer. So far, the total fundraising has reached a total of $4000!!!!!!!! Thank you! Thank You! Thank you to everyone for helping us to bring Jailynn home! We are hoping to travel sometime this month and still need to raise money. I know that God is providing for our family through the unselfish and generous giving from special and wonderful people like you!
