Isaiah 43

1 But now, this is what the LORD says-he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.

2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

3 For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I give Eypyt for your ransom and Seba in your stead.”

As I walked through the city park today in Ashland with Olivia, Mandi (one of her friends), my nephew, and my sister-in-law, this was one of many beautiful scenes that caught my eye!

After getting home and reflecting on the memories of the day, I pulled up this picture. As I looked at it and then read the Scripture above, I felt thankful!

Thankful that whether we are……………

Passing through the water,

Or passing through the river,

Or walking through the fire,

We will not be harmed.


Because the Lord of Israel is our God!

Nick had a good day today! He was able to spend the afternoon with Tim (my husband), his Uncle Gary, and all of his brothers along with several friends playing poker (of all things) while we took the little ones to play in the sun!


Isn’t God amazing!?!? Nick is doing normal things every day!!!!!!!!! Praise God!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for your continued prayers for our family as we walk through the fire!!! We truly feel God’s presence every single day!
