hope and a future

Just a sweet little video to tide you over for the weekend...






...or maybe longer. We've had a lovely little crisis come up. Remember my post about the week from you-know-where last week? Turns out things could get worse. I'm not at liberty to say because of this being a public blog, but my posting will probably be a bit sporadic for the next 30 days. I'm just being honest-I am reeling right now. We could really use prayer, and I hope I haven't worn out my welcome asking for it. If you know us in real life, you know what to pray for, and if you don't, please pray that God shows us what to do and for a miracle for the Rice Ranch.




And I wish I could look the devil right in the face right now, because I would tell him this: As for you, you meant it for evil against me, but God meant it for good. Because in spite of what life throws at us sometimes, GOD IS GOOD.


Until next time, I am clinging to what I know is true...


"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
