Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
A week filled with abundant Peace……
As I was reading through the book of Philippians this week, I was reminded of this verse:
What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
Seems weird to have Peace, as it’s been a particularly hard week.
We never lose sight of our great God. He is more than amazing……….
There is a wonderful little book called The Red Sea Rules that has been a wonderful encouragement to us! It reminds us that:
– It is only He who gives us our crisis as a faith builder for our future.
– It is only He who keeps us calm and confident, allowing Him time to work.
– It is only He that means for us to be where we are.
– It is only He who can deliver in His own unique way.
– It is only He who reminds us to praise Him.
We do continue to covet your prayers as we make our way through so many mazes of this journey. We realize it’s impossible for everyone who is supporting us in prayer, to know details, the full truth and all the facts. A statement was issued by the attorneys and insurance company on Tuesday, in order to clarify that Lauren never accepted or rejected the insurance company’s offer.

2 Corinthians tells us in verse 4:8 that “We often suffer, but we are never crushed. Even when we don’t know what to do, we never give up. “As hard as it’s been at times, this crisis in our life has opened our hearts to even greater depths, and we are grateful!
God has been, and continues to be, our amazing refuge and strength. We continue to lift His name on High, in order to please and honor Him in all we do.
