61 days

There will probably be many many posts like this one this week, because honestly since words are insufficient I will just beat them into submission trying to MAKE them sufficient...

BRETT GRADUATES RANGER SCHOOL ON FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Over 60 people prayed ( those are JUST the people I know of!!) . Eight people came to stay with me.  Five people made meals for me. Five people babysat my child 7 different times. I received eight packages in the mail and three cards. Countless facebook messages and some emails and texts too. And then there was all the support that Brett received....
Honestly, there are NO WORDS to describe the love and the support that we've received through this Ranger School process. In fact, blogging is SO insufficient. Here are some of the verses that the Lord blessed me with during these last 8 weeks! 

Is 33:2, O Lord, be gracious to us, we have waited for you. Be their strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress.

Job 23:10-12, But he knows the way that I take when he has tried me, I shall come out as gold. My foot has held fast to his steps; I have kept my way and have not turned aside I have not departed from the commandment of his lip; I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my portion of food. 

Ps 42:8, By day the Lord commands his steadfast love, and at night his song is with me. 

Ps 46:5, God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God will help her when the morning dawns

Job 37:14 Stop and consider the wondrous works of God. Do you know how God lays his commands upon them?

Ps 52:8 I will trust in the steadfast love of the Lord forever and ever. 

Job 42:2 I know you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted. 

Ps 55:16-18, But I call to God and the Lord will save me. Evening, morning and at noon, I utter my complaint and moan, and he heard my voice. 

Ps 55: 22, Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you, he will never permit the righteous to be moved. 

Ps 56: 3-4, When I am afraid I put my trust in you. In God who's word I praise. In God I trust I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?

Rev 4.11, Worthy are you, Our Lord and God. To receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they exist and were created. 

Ps 66.19, But truly God has listened he has attended to the voice of my prayer. 

Ps 69:12-13, But as for me, my prayer is to you, O Lord, at an acceptable time, O God in the abundance of your steadfast love answer me in your saving faithfulness. Deliver me from sinking in the mire. 

Ps 71:20, YOu who have made me see many troubles and calamities, will revive me again from the depths of the earth you will bring me up again. You will increase my greatness and comfort me again.

Yay! I'm so glad your family will be back together soon :)

Also, this blog post was written in the tiniest font ever--I thought it would be a huge font and in bold? ;)
