Whisper A Little Prayer for Britt in Bolivia

Would you whisper a little prayer for my boy? Britt leaves for Bolivia on Tuesday on a mission trip with the leaders of Pine Cove Camps.  It's a beautiful vision PCC is bringing to several places in South America.

We're on our way to Pine Cove this weekend.  What stirs in Britt's heart is such a good thing.  He could be spending his Christmas break skiing with his buddies.  He wanted to be a part of making a difference in Bolivia.

We would be so humbled if you joined us in praying for Britt sometime during the next two weeks.  Pray God's Protection over my boy.  He has finally recovered from a year-long bout with mono.  Pray God's Good Hand over the 15 college students and Pine Cove leaders on this trip.  May they all be "gripped" by a very Good God. 

And pray that the rest of his money comes in by this Tuesday when he leaves.  He still is in need of about $500. Would you like to join in on what God is doing in another country? If God leads you to send $5 or $50, you can send it to Britt by PayPal. So appreciative! Our PayPal account address is: You may call Britt directly to talk or pray with him about his trip, if you would like ~ 817.915.3349.

To those of you who gave to Britt to make this dream of his come true, this mom sends a huge note of thanks.  This has been a very tight tough year financially for us, coming off of cancer.  God has stepped into our midst and provided in our need in ways that just doesn't happen very often in America.  Long story.  Big God!  We are so grateful that Britt has this awesome opportunity.

There is always a "ram in the thicket" and may we have eyes to see what God is doing in our lives.  May He provide for our son and those he will reach, beyond what we can ask.

A Thousand Thanks for caring about our youngest boy whom God is stirring. Would you say a little prayer for him this day?

Happy Birthday Barrett

Happy 30th Birthday Barrett
We've watched you train to become one of the most awesome pro triathletes out there.
You've always had an awesome work ethic.
You have your dad's #1-in-the-country genes.

Your mom remembers most of the past three decades.
You brought us more joy than I can ever tell.
Your sisters adored you ... and they still do!

Whether it's placing 5th in the ITU Team Triathlon World Championships in Switzerland
Or 1st in a 25-mile bike ride when you were four, your family believes in you
and loves you more than you will ever know.
Not for what you do, but for who you are.
We may not be able to travel the world to follow you, but you will always be in our hearts.
And this mom is right there with you---I'm staying forever there
praying for you every day of your awesome life.
Loving the young man whom you have become!
Little Britt came along ten years after you were born.
Looks like you are almost passing up the 6' 4" fella.
He doesn't remember much of the three of you being at home.
But as he has entered college last year, he is fast becoming your best buddy. I love my boys!
Three Christmas decades ago I checked into a Fort Worth hospital to deliver an overdue baby
who took 2 MORE DAYS to be born.
You have always approached life
with brewing curiosity and boiling charm.
Whether we were on a Real Farm like above or the Worm Farm we enjoyed or watching tractors
You have marked us all forever
 beyond my dreams!
Your family thinks the world of you!
And now your wife has stepped in
to love and cherish and she does!
On Christmas Day when you were asked
what is beautiful in your life,
your immediate response was: My Wife!

You're humble and passionate and tenacious and bright and
you're on the right path of life.
Keep on fighting the good fight of faith. I Tim 6:12
Happy Birthday Son!
Your Madre Loves You More Than Tongue Can Tell

Praying for Our Friend Joanne Psalm 131:3 Waiting on God. Hope Now. Hope Always.

I've met some amazing women through blogging. I would love to hear from you. My personal e-mail is:
I have another blog where I blog daily as a small group of us read through the New Testament this year. It's called A String of Pearls. We carry each other on mats (when we just can't walk anymore) to Jesus and sweet things like that.
