Steve is holding our pet for the day.
They like to knock themselves out on the
glass so we often find ourselves having to revive them!
Our excitement for the month was
hearing from the exchange student from Bolivia that had stayed with us
in Norwich when I was in high school! Thirty years later we are back in
contact and looking forward to getting together and visiting Bolivia
later this year. The magic of the Internet that didn't even exist when
we were in high school helped us get back in touch!
We are looking forward to the mission trip in July and what God has in
store for us there, as well as just waiting on His timing for the rest
of our lives at this moment. Praising Him in the high and low moments
keeps us focused and really looking at what is important in life. If
you are finding yourself in a similar situation, just remember that
some of life's greatest lessons are learned when we have to step back,
regroup, and refocus on God.

Verses to check out - Ephesians 2:8-10; 3:11-13 Romans
3:22-24; 10:8-10; 5:1; 11:6 Galatians 2:16; 2:21; 3:24
It is our faith and desire to please God that leads us to want to do
good works, not a need to work our way into heaven.
