To God be the Glory

First let me say that Kate is doing better and better with each day.
Thank you for all of your phone calls and prayers!
Now, we've had SUCH an INCREDIBLE day!
We started off the morning at VBS and then met up with some out of town friends at
Chuck E. Cheese.
Jackson and Micah Collins were visiting their grandmother this week and so
we got to meet up with them for lunch and a few hours of fun.

Ethan just LOVED Micah and just kept trying to give him some love.
But Ethan and Micah (age 5) probably weigh close to the same,
so Ethan kept pushing Micah over. Very Humerous!
Then, this evening our church took over 2400 people to a Rangers game.
We all had matching red T-shirts. It was fund to see sooo many people from our church there!
Here's my crew waiting to get into the stadium.
It was a great night to be there 'cause it was $1 Hot dog night!!
But don't worry...I still managed to indulge in some Garlic Fries.
Need I say more?

These two had a CRAZY great time!!

Can you see all of the red shirts in the background? Cool, huh!

I don't think the Rangers won, but we had a great night, none the less.
And THE BEST was yet to come...
After getting home and taking showers,
Connor prayed and asked Jesus in heart.
NEVER, NEVER under estimate the power of children
learning/memorizing scripture...
Connor was been "obsessed" with his verse from Monday...
1 John 3:1 "How great is the love that the Father has lavished on us, that we
should be called children of God."
It's a little different translation, but how crazy that it is the verse
I choose for this blog...
...and God used that verse to make the love of JESUS real to my 7 year old son.
On Tuesday, they learned Isaiah 41:13 and Connor realized that with Jesus you
don't have to be afraid because HE is always with you.
And then today they learned Romans 10:9..."For if you confess with your mouth that
Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."
Connor believes that Jesus died for him.
He knows he will never leave him nor forsake him.
And he knows that NO MATTER WHAT, Jesus now lives in his heart.
Praise Jesus for cameras...this is a moment I want to remember for as long as I live.


  1. That is awesome!!! We saw a ton of the Crossroads VBS kids today at McDonalds on Broad and 360!! :)

  2. I am crying! Praise the Lord! What a joy to know he is our new brother in Christ! I am also praising the Lord that you were able to capture the time of prayer! Oh this will be sweet memories for him and his children to come! Praise THE LORD!
