Catching Up...





We all take so many leaps of Faith, every day we have opportunities that push us to the edge. Some days I feel like my head just will not allow me to take the leaps that my heart wants me to take.


Leap #1 - Trusting that Jesus dying on the cross was enough to get me to heaven. There wasn't anything I could have done to get there anyway.


Leap #2 - Trusting God that He really had brought the man I was supposed to marry into my life when I was 17. (God was right)

Leap #3 - Becoming a Mom-I didn't really have much choice in this leap, but it has been the best thing to ever happen to me

Leap #4 - Watching God give Ben a commission job and being at its mercy (I have since found that our finances are in God's control and he blesses those who obey Him)

Leap #5 - Starting my own business. What a struggle it was at first, but sticking with it was the best thing we ever did

Leap #6 - Moving up to Holly from Lake Orion (and surprise surprise - immediately the funeral homes up here go nuts with business for me )

Leap #7 - Buying a house. Some days I thought we would NEVER find the right house for us, yet here I am sitting in it, Thanks to God who found us the perfect house!

Leap #8 - Woke up today curious about what the next one is going to be...


There have been dozens and dozens of little leaps all in between our bigger ones. And honestly, the little ones are the ones that have made us who we are. Taking a leap in faith to do what is right rather than what is easy. A leap in faith in helping others when they needed it. A leap in living a life that isn't all about us. A leap in faith about sending Kobe to a Christian school when there are cheaper routes. A leap in faith about sharing with other people about Jesus & sharing what God has done in our lives.

A leap in faith that is based on God, because with out God there is nothing to have faith in!

You my daughter are AMAZING! I am so glad that you see GOD working all around you! It is amazing. Then to hear Kobe talk about how he wants to be on the good side and make Satan cry and make GOD smile. What more could a mom and grandma want...
Love you bunches,
Mom
