When we return, we're going to have another week to spend with Micah and Monica before taking them to mama and papa in Alabama. Can you say Wild River Country!? :)

Today, I am celebrating my 1096th day on staff at Mosaic! The last three years have flown by so fast. I believe it’s because I am right in the center of God’s perfect will for my life. He has been so good to me during this season of my life that it would take an entire book to tell about all that He has done. Here are the highlights that scratch the surface of His greatness.
He saved me! If it weren’t for Jesus, I would surely be dead. Not just spiritually dead, but six-feet-under dead! I’m forever grateful that Christ Jesus poured out unlimited patience (1 Timothy 1:15,16) on me even during my most rebellious stages of life. This is something that happened a long time ago, but I think about it often and realize that it is His grace that sustains me every day (2 Corinthians 12:9).
He loves me! Beyond the everyday blessings like a place to live and food to eat, just check out that beautiful woman in the picture next to me! I’m so overwhelmed by God’s love for me that I experience daily through the love given to me by Inés. Proverbs 31:10-11 reads, “An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.” Amen, brother!
I have purpose! For three full years now, I have been able to live an abundant life with purpose and direction knowing that God has designed me (and everyone else) to know him and to make him known (Matthew 22:37-40; 28:19-20). And I get to do that for a living! J
There is so much more I could say, but I will close this section with this. Christ is my Savior. God is the lover of my soul, and he daily lavishes his love on me. He gives me a purposeful life that has eternal impact through his son Jesus Christ. If you don’t have a clue what I’m writing about, please read John 3:16-21 out of the Message by clicking here.
In His grip,
