Holding Down the Fort

This is our little bit of home. We grow here, learn here and sometimes fight our battles here. Battles to keep a marriage strong....battles to keep our kids from going the way of the world, but today was a spiritual battle for me. 

We're holding down the fort here. We're taking care of needed things that come with owning a home, raising a family, raising food to feed that family..... Life goes on but in my mind I wondered why WE had to take care of it all...a selfish thought, really! For a brief moment, while things were going a bit sour and the enemy had me down, I thought to myself "Why do I have to take care of all this while Dave is in Italy?" See how sinful I am! But it was just one of those fiery darts the devil likes to throw. The battle may still go on but we're holding down the fort. 

Dave has his battles in Italy as well. Please pray for him Sunday. While we're all sleeping, he'll be running a marathon and passing out tracts while he's at it. When we wake up and head to church, he'll be recovering. It's when you're tired emotionally, physically that Satan likes to get you. Please pray that Dave keeps his armour on!

We ALL appreciate you helping us in the battle!

God is awesome, and He gave me a great wife!
And wonderful kids!

Hebrews 11:13,15,16

... These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off and were PERSUADED of them, and EMBRACED them, and CONFESSED that they were STRANGERS and PILGRIMS on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country... But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
