At our fabulous going away party hosted by dear friends
Loading everything into the moving van
Miss Jess (John's aid and our dear friend) came with us to help us get settled in Atlanta.
There is nothing like moving to cause you to step back, reflect, communicate with the Lord, and gain perspective. One of the things that has been on our hearts and minds during this transition is our continued prayers for John's healing.
As we packed up our back freezer, I found this:
This is a piece of cake I saved from John's church dedication celebration in August of 2009. We have kept it, looking forward to eating it when John crawls yet keeping it tucked away so as not to miss the joy in the present.
It was hard to pack up this piece of cake that has represented both hope and longing, and in doing so, "move" the promise with us to Atlanta.
The promise of John's full healing has shaped much of the past three years and has transformed how we view faith, prayer, the Holy Spirit, God's will, etc. Therefore, we'd love to share a brief 11 minute sermon by Bill Johnson that really touched us this morning:
I appreciate how this talk challenges and reminds us to:
*Stay conscious of God and *Focus on what GOD HAS DONE, not what he hasn't done.
