This week I've made a new friend named Carol. She's the one I'm giving a big hug to in the above picture. Carol has just come to know Jesus in the past few months. Her life has not been easy. Alcoholism has attempted to destroy her and her family, but JESUS passed by and Carol has accepted the GOOD NEWS of JESUS CHRIST. Her decision has impacted her daughters and granddaughters. They are in the above picture.
While on the Rosebud Reservation we had a ladies' tea party. Carol, her two daughters and granddaughters came. I couldn't help but think of my great-grandmother who was bound by sin. Not only was she an alcoholic, but a bootlegger, but JESUS passed by. Her decision to follow Christ has affected five generations. My great-grandmother, my grandmother, my mother, myself and my children.
I believe Carol's decision to follow JESUS will also affect her future generations.
The chains are gone....
I've been set free
Please pray for my new friend Carol and her family.

I remember once a line from a song........ THE ONLY THING YOU REALLY OWN IS WHAT YOU GIVE AWAY........... This week we are on a missions' trip to the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota. We have found the song lyric to be true. Jesus was right.... It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Wow! It's been a whirlwind of a week. We have been busy preparing for our baby daughter's wedding, which will be on June 27th. In the midst of our hustle and bustle, my darling husband planned a mission's trip. The Lord is teaching me about spiritual flexibility. "Blessed are the flexible for they shall not get bent out of shape..." :-)So, our bags are packed and tomorrow morning we will be headed off to South Dakota to the Pine Ridge Reservation. Praying that our team will be a blessing and spread some "SON"shine.
K.C. has also sent another illustration for my newest children's book. I hope y'all enjoy taking a peek.
I've posted some of the pictures of our daughter's bridal shower. It was beautiful and thought you might enjoy seeing them, too.
Anywhere with JESUS I will safely go.
Anywhere HE leads me in this world below....
Until next time,
