The Day Jesus Died


 He thought he’d won
the devil smiled
 And rubbed his hands with glee
The maker of the world was dead
 Hanging on a tree.
“The world is mine
I own it ...now,
I finally won,” he cried.
He didn’t know he’d lost it all
The day that Jesus died---  

Two days he smiled
His heart was light
Now man was his alone—
Then words that echoed
through the years,
turned his heart to stone
“For God so loved the world,
He gave His only Son to die—
But on the third day He would rise,
give man eternal life.”  

 That Sunday morn
He waited there
As darkness changed to light
Then terror seared his burning heart
And anguish filled his eyes…
The empty tomb—
He’s risen! It can’t be true,” he cried
He finally learned, he’d lost it all
The day that Jesus died…

Flight travel woes

Well, yesterday was to go off without a hitch but someone forgot to tell US Air that.  We were to pick Sherrie Fausey up at Dulles airport at 5 p.m. and then bring her back to meet all our family and a few friends.  She calls in the afternoon to tell us they switched her flight so she is coming in at 5:25.    Half way down Interstate 66 we get a call from her that her flight is delayed for mechanical reasons.  So we stop at a Sheetz to kill time people watching while we wait rather than turn around and come back home.  By 6 p.m. her flight is completely cancelled and now she is on a flight arriving at midnight.  so home we go.  Then pick her up and this time that flight was early.  She got in around 11:30.  Her day started at 5 a.m.  She was exhausted.  Now today we are off to help her shop at EQUIPPING THE SAINTS.  A great place for missionaries to find good 'experienced' items at bargain prices.

Adventures with God

You just never know what God is going to take you through.  And sometimes it doesn't feel like you will make it through it but He always shows Himself real and takes you through.  He shows His love in so many ways.             
He is changing things around for us and we are excited and scared at the same time.  We KNOW He will provide but often wish He would let us see a little farther down the road.  We are stepping out to be a mission to missionaries.  We will be doing whatever we can, wherever we can to help further the Gospel.  Right now we are helping Sherrie Fausey, missionary to Haiti, gather items for her container.  She is coming here to VA and we are taking her to a great place called EQUIPPING THE SAINTS to buy many items to go in the container. 
Also going to the Green Valley Book Fair to find some books for her to replenish her library after the earthquake and its aftermath destroyed.  Pray for us as we step out to do this.  We plan this to be full time so we will depend on God and His people for support.
