This morning during prayer Ms. Carol, was talking about God knowing the desires of our hearts and wanting to bless us with them.
Why as Christian people are we afraid to ask for specific things? At least I know I am. Is it because we may get the answer we are looking for then actually have to act on that thing? Is it because He may have a different plan for us and we may not like the answer we receive? So many times we think we want something but we are not sure we really want it, or are terrified to move forward with something. Thankfully God knows whether or not it is for our benefit or not and the timing in which it should happen.
I am thankful for a loving God who knows the desires of our heart and wants to give them to us. Even the little things.

I have So much to be thankful for. I can not believe we have been here in Okinawa a year already. Time sure does fly. God is good because even as much as I miss home I am finding more and more things that I like about this island.

Our first Typhoon!

We survived typhoon Bolaven over the weekend. All in all it wasn't a bad experience, especially since we had no idea what was going to happen. Just like the hurricanes state side these things change almost constantly.
Well then we have a couple more, and Jelewat was the kick in the pants. Although we are very grateful that is was not worse!

Happy August!!

Well with August comes the end of summer and the beginning of a new school year! Ya know the time of year when you are torn between wanting the kids out of the house for a few hours and not wanting your bumming around buddies to leave you??? :)
