In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

I don't have a current photo of Carter because he lives in Washington and we see him only once a year. These are mostly from last summer when he visited. We would like anyone who feels lead to pray for him. last week he went in for a reconstrution surgery for his circumcision which had grown back. He has been home and doing well but then developed croup. My daughter called yesterday and he had to be admitted to the hospital his chest was caving in and he couldn't breathe. He is 15 months old, our second grandson. A friend of my sons just lost her baby to a respirtory illness after being sent home from the hospital. They told her everything was fine. The baby died in her arms a few hours later, at home. So when we are faced with challenges of life , for me any way, there is only one place to go and that is on my knees in prayer because GOD is the only one who can make a difference if one lives or dies.

He is breathing without oxygen now but he is still in the hospital. I will find out more later today. Thank-you for your prayer support

I had no idea! Even though I live in the same state I always feel so far away from Michelle! Wish at times like this that we lived just down the block so I could just run over and help! We will keep on in prayer for little Carter!!!
