The following prayer was written by my brother in law and I wanted to share it with you. It is a great prayer for families especially during this day and age. May God be with you this next year in every aspect of your life. God bless!!

by Chris Jordan

Sovereign Lord and Father,

You created each of us and called us to glorify you in all things.

From the very beginning, you designed the family. We all are born into families, though each family is different, and none are perfect, You graciously and sovereignly chose and placed us in the family we are a part of.

We know that each person is shaped and developed by their family. We affirm that the biblical family is a scripturally ordered household of parents, children, and sometimes others forming the God-ordained building blocks of the church and society.

When the family is lacking You and Your word, families get off course, even leading their children down the path of destruction.

But when a family puts You as the head, they thrive and experience great blessings.

Not without pain, nor without heartache. But the storms of life are navigated much more effectively.

Our prayer today is for the redemption of our families.

Families represented in my home...the church...and throughout our nation!

As the family becomes will the will the nation.

You have blessed us with the spouse we have. You have granted us blessings in each child we have or will have.

Raise up men who will be men of God...that will lead their wives and children. Turn the hearts of fathers to their families...Put the desire in these men to hunger for You...learn more about shaped by You...set an example in our world for You.

Raise up women of virtue that will display the "inward adornment of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God." Empower women to be godly mothers and thereby impacting an entire generation for You. Help us as a church to proclaim the nobility and glory of motherhood.

Raise up children who are disciplined and desire to live righteously. Give them a desire to learn from their parents the ways of Christ. And where there is a lack of godly parents, help these children to overcome their circumstances and give glory to You.

Sanctify our families...protect them from evil influences and cultural agendas...Empower our efforts for love, discipline, guidance and godliness.

Do not allow members of our families to fall short of heaven.

Father, help bring more unity between the Church and the Home. Both are needed...both are desired.

This is our prayer...Families for Your glory we pray..Amen

A wonderful blog to visit

A couple of weeks ago a good friend passed along this blog. She said it was about a little boy who had a rare disorder and was probably not going to live. I came home that night after church and got on the blog and I could not stop reading it. I want to pass it along to you, so you may be blessed as well. This family is a awesome testimony to there faith in God. Since I have been reading this blog there son "Noah" has passed on to be with THE father in heaven. If you open your heart to this blog, you will be blessed in so many ways. I just think it is important to pass this along so God will continue to get the glory of "Noah's" life and not the devil. Also to reach out to people and let them know about the Lord and how great he is.
There is also a link under the blogs I like to visit on my page.

"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him- but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit." 1 Corinthians 2:9-10

WISHING EACH ONE OF YOU A SAFE AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!! In our church bulletin this Sunday was the following scripture "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation" -2 Corinthians 5:17-18. This scripture really touched me and is a great way to start the new year. One of our resolutions as a family this year is to continue to grow in God's word. For you and your family we hope this next year will be filled with God's blessings to all of yours.

Savannah's Rodeo Series '06

Savannah was in a rodeo series from August till December-Ranch Cowboy Rodeo Association-Pee Wee Ranch Rodeo. She did a great job and we are real proud of her and "Pesky." They are a great team. It was a great thing to watch our children grow in there horsemanship and riding. It was also a great time for fun and fellowship. They won great prizes at the finals in December-a belt buckle, spilt reins, headstall with a handmade buckle, wild rag and a coat. I have attached a few pics from the rodeo, most of ours came out to dark, because of the lighting in the arena. Her and Michael trying to stay warm at the finals!! We had to wait for the older age group to get done before the awards were handed out. Her getting ready to rope, she caught several times, way to go Savannah!! Me and my girl Angie!! We are having a great time!! Our husbands asked us if we could smile anymore!!! Savannah penning the cows!! We had a awesome season and are already ready for the next series!!
