Memorial Day Weekend....what it really means

It's Memorial Day weekend where I believe most of us think of it as a time for outdoor barbecue and gathering with family and friends. But why have we forgotten it's true meaning? It falls into the same category as Christmas and Easter. The true meanings get clouded by our current world and it's "value's system." What I am most thankful for on this weekend are the past, present and future men and women who put themselves in the line of fire from real bullets and bombs to preserve our freedoms here in America. We have the right to worship the one true God....but we also have the right to not worship the one true God. Our forefathers worshiped the one true God and they even opened sessions of Congress with prayer! Oh the audacity of them! Could you imagine what and where our country would be if our Congress still opened with prayer? We wouldn't have both parties arguing over idealistic partisan "values". They would probably be arguing over how best to welcome our returning service members from a tour overseas; debating which way God wants the country to go; debating how best to perform God's will for this great nation. However, we are where we are today.....Lost.
So, on this Memorial Day weekend I want to thank all of those men and women for serving this country so that I can sit in my living room and type out a blog on my personal opinions and not feel the threat of a government to break down my doors and throw me in jail...although we are slowly approaching that arena soon.
I can sit here and ask God to protect this country, show me His will for my family, and freely worship the one true God without repercussions form a rogue government with whom the enemy has led astray.
It's great to be an American, but it's even greater to know that there is a loving God leading me and my family to carryout His perfect will.

Home Study Approved!

Our Home Study was approved today and we are on our way to .....well.....uhm.....wait. Whoever thought that getting put in line would be such an accomplishment! Today, we are officially on the wait list for Ghana.
We know and trust that God is working in our lives in so, so many ways that it's hard to express in words. Circumstances that we look back and reflect on turn into divine appointments rather than chance encounters.
Lately, it's hard to keep a blog up-to-date, but we know that it will start to pick up more and more as we get closer and closer to some of the more important dates.
Stay tuned and check out all of those cool shirts on our site!
