Y’all. First… we wanted to express our deepest thanks for the outpouring of love we experienced following our last post. Seriously thank you. Thank you. Thank you. We are so thankful for our community around us that our story has been able to help a few others find hope in this world.
Since our big announcement we have been BUSY. Went on a few trips, saw the beach, toured Chicago and now we are home and anxiously waiting for baby boy Roberts to be here in February.
Blondie and baby boy are both doing great. We can feel him in there dancing and he loves when we read to him.
Momma is working hard on R+F and KILLING IT. Seriously would not have been able to travel to Mexico or Chicago without R+F providing us with residual income. She still works 5 days a week too at her offices and is loving her patients these days… As long as they have been flossing.
As we enter into this nesting phase we ask you be praying for her heart and perseverance. We know it is not going to be easy but know that Christ will give Blondie the strength needed to get to February.
I (Jase) have started as a small group leader in Watermark’s Junior High ministry called WAKE. I am one of three leaders for a group of 14 6th grade boys. FOURTEEN. Any prayers you can throw out there for me and my guys would be much appreciated. So far it has been such a blessing. These guys are a fun-loving group and it melts my heart seeing them pursue the Lord together. Please pray for my heart as I lead these guys. They are making me press into the Word and Jesus and I am so thankful for them (an empty jar cannot pour into others very well).
Please join me in praying that I can be a full jar to pour into each of these guys! I have been praying over this verse as I prepare to go through life with them:
“Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.”
We pray that I will have the knowledge to speak the word of God, that my life’s outcomes will reflect a life lived for Christ and my faith would be worth imitating. Please join us in that prayer.
We will be together all the way through their high school graduation… in for the long haul. Cannot wait to see what God has in store for these guys, they are destined for great things.
Thank you all for loving us so well! We want to share our walk with you, so we will be trying to update this more frequently!
I will leave you with this tidbit from my WAKE curriculum this week. I LOVE THIS. A simple question… Based on your life, what would someone say you “love”?
I know for me someone would first say Auburn, football, sports, Dave Matthews Band and then probably Cal and my faith. How backwards is that?
So what would people say you love? Are you okay with that being what defines you?
If you are a Christian, are you living every day for Jesus? Or are you living just like the non believer? If you were put on trial for being a Christian would they have enough evidence to convict you?
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
Thank you for reading. Thank you for loving us. Thank you for praying for us.
