An Unexpected Journey

There are easy journey's and there are tough ones. Many times we are caught off guard as we travel life's road. Doug and I will begin 2012 with new adventures. They are not the ones we would have chosen, but we know GOD has a perfect plan for us. We pray as HE shows us the way, HE will give us the strength to continue in the race. In the coming weeks I will share more of the mountain we are facing. It is our prayer GOD will be glorified in and through it all. Unexpected journeys may be difficult, but with GOD all things are possible! At this time, please pray for complete healing and restoration, strength, and grace for each moment. We stand together united in Christ facing each tomorrow together!

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,

What Blessings Do You See?

Blessings come in all shapes and sizes. Often, there are blessings all around us, but we do not recognize them. The chaos of life distract us from what is most important. Today, let us focus on God's blessings, great and small.

A few blessings from The Perdue Zoo:

~Giggling, squealing grandson makes my heart smile:)
~Granddaughter telling Papa, "I love you mostest and that's all!"
~Families coming together in love with hearts full of grace and mercy!
~God's beautiful creation! Over the last few weeks we have had deer playing in and around our yard late in the evening.
~Friends with hearts full of love!
~Watching GOD bless those who have sacrificed much many years ago!

What blessings to do you see in your zoo/home?

Praying each of you have a Christmas full of unexpected blessings!

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,

Where Is Your Focus?

"2-3But friends, that's exactly who we are: children of God. And that's only the beginning. Who knows how we'll end up! What we know is that when Christ is openly revealed, we'll see him—and in seeing him, become like him. All of us who look forward to his Coming stay ready, with the glistening purity of Jesus' life as a model for our own." 1 John 3:2-3 The Message

Friends, it is time to consider what we are teaching those we love the most! Are we teaching them to look to the future with eager expectation? Or, are we teaching them to look back and wallow in the past? Where is your focus?

~Let us teach our children and grandchildren to keep their eyes focused on the Lord!

~Let us live our lives in a way that encourages others to run the race of this life eagerly toward their Heavenly Father!
