Love Is Patient

Love is patient,
love is kind.
It does not envy,
it does not boast,
it is not proud.

It is not rude,
it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of
Love does not delight
in evil but rejoices with the truth.
1 Corinthians 13:4-6

These last couple weeks have been tough!
We know this is all in God's hands, and also in God's timing!
Really wondering, what is God trying to tell us?? I don't
want a pity party for our family! This road is just a bumpy,
twist and turns kind of journey! It is good for us to feel sad,
mad and reexamine our hearts! We will be just fine, and God is
by our side! Sunday Morning we had Youth Sunday in church!
What an awesome service!! One part of the service the song "I will Rise"
was played and all the Kids had card board, and wrote on each side, what they're
worry, sin or problem was and on the other side, what to do about it.
What a bunch of awesome, honest kids!! Ton's of tears where shed through
the whole church! Our Niece, Nephew and Beau had tons of honesty, and brought
me to tears. God is so awesome in their lives, and such an awesome challenge to us parents/family to press on and lean on God!

But you are a shield around me, O LORD;
you bestow glory on me and lifts up my head.
To the LORD I cry aloud,
and he answers me from his holy hill.
I lie down and sleep;
I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
Psalm 3:3-5

Signs of spring are around us! The SUN is shining!
Just seen a robin on top of our evergreen tree!
There is even grass under all that snow!! :)

Yesterday Brynn had no school, b/c of Kindergarten Round Up!
We went and had some fun with her cousin at Color Me Mine!!


This is God's promise for us all!
"'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

As we all wait on the Lord, I ask you to pray for those who are all waiting!
Waiting for answers, waiting for results, waiting for so many things!
God hears our prayers, and it is such a good reminder to leave it at God's
feet, for He stays up all day and night and cares for us all!
Have a Blessed Week!

God didn't create us without feelings so I say USE THEM UP!!! I cried more tears than I care to tell you and we had a SMOOTH process !!! Cry, scream, yell ... do whatever you need to get through , just remember that you are NOT alone in this journey !! God and ALL of us are with you !!! God's timing is perfect and when your family is all together some day you will forget the ups and downs of waiting and be in awe of the awesome ride God sent you on!!! Without all the wiggles and bumps of this life we would miss all the FUN!!! Prayer and lots of love to all of you !!! ~Steve , Pat, Ethan , and Ava Sandbulte
