Walk By Faith


Wil and Nanuq walking on Hatteras Island!












"For we walk by faith, not by sight." 2Corinthians 5:7 NAS

On those windy, sandy, days we must continue to walk in faith. Hold tightly to what we know to be true. Our faith will carry us through this life into eternal life.


Clinging tightly,

Andrea

*Please pray for the Johnson Family. They will be burying their mother/grandmother/great grandmother, today. Please pray specifically that the rain subsides before the graveside service at 3pm. Doug and I will be attending the graveside service. We thank each of you for your prayers for this family.

I hope that the weather held today...I didn't get here until too late. Praying that God holds them all close and gives them the peace in their hearts and comfort for their soul in this painful time of significant loss.
