Wow I knew this week would fly and it very much did but it was one of those weeks that in my flesh I thought would be slow and honestly hard to make it through but God did amazing and wonderful things each and every day!! His Holy Spirit truly lead me with strength and peace that passed ALL understanding, even in the midst of the enemies attacks on our health, time and thoughts, GOD REIGNED AND WAS OH SO VICTORIOUS! When a person who "knows" the Lord goes throughout their day and just converses with and about their Abba Daddy or Lord it is a natural thing to them but when you have conversation with others who don't "know" Him they think it strange or say to themselves "why do they talk like that?" Well here are just a FEW of the highlites where our God covered me with His wings or Hid me behind His Cross or just gave me peace in the midst of the storm.

Sunday-Jen got sick, fever, throat all the signs of possible flu. We had leadership over here and prayed over her and God poured and washed over her touching her heart, mind, and body. She was back at school by Wed. and felt better by Tues.
Wednesday was youth and also a VERY busy day but each minute the Lord had planned in detail! I picked Jantzen up from school and he asked me to drive across the street to the ALZHEIMERS NURSING HOME, I was finishing up a conversation on the phone and so I just did what he asked and when I finished I asked why we were here. He explained that the blanket that his class had crocheted for a patient here at the facility was finished and a woman had come to receive it for her and that Jantzen wanted to meet her. I honestly did everything I could to keep us from going in and I really can't explain why because our family has a SERIOUS heart for the elderly and adore them but anyway after I came up with every reason why and Jantzen just continued to say "well, we can try" we went in. Immediately to our right, there sat the woman who had come to the school to receive the blanket. She asked me is she could help us and I explained that Jantz was a student who participated in making the blanket for their patient and that he wanted to me her. She was aghast (sp?) and with tear in her eyes she proceeded to explain what we might see as we walked back to meet with some of these people. She explained how we were to "LOVE THEM WHERE THEY WERE. " She told Jantzen that like when he was a baby and I loved him even though he couldn't walk or talk that that's what we were to do. I immediately said to Jantzen, Just like the Lord loves us.....right where we are. So as we continue behind locked/secure door after another we finally come upon a group of elderly people playing ball. (throwing a soft big ball one to another, for exercise) Well she proceeded to announce who Jantzen was and why he was here. She had the gift bag in hand and began introducing Jantzen to each member in the circle, and told Jantz something special about each one of them. "This is Frank, he served in WWII, as frank whispers "tell him I served in France". Then there was Shirley who immediately grabs Jantzen as if to pull herself up with his strength, He says you don't have to get up, She looks him straight in the eye and says "Oh yes, I gotta PEE!!" omg it was hilarious. He continues on meeting these most precious children of God and gets to this sweet, in my best Beth Moore voice possible "I MEAN SWEET, YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT?" man, he is introduced as their "Pastor" His name of Bob. He smiles the MOST precious smile and with all seriousness in him looks at Jantz and says "Well, she is such a pretty little girl
