Focus

So...since my 'leaving work' transition I have been focusing on reconnecting with friends and family, since I had neglected so many relationships while focusing on work for so many years.
Over the past 7 weeks now that Ms Emma has come in to our world, of course I had been focusing on her and put all else aside.  
I've still been praying for you!  I pray for those that come to check in on our lives and those that come to mind.  


This morning, I'm refocusing yet again.  Selfishly, because I need it :)  If I can focus on other's and their needs, it will remind me to pray throughout the day, keeping me in communication with God.  And that's my heart's cry - to be constantly connected.  ...and I genuinely want to be connected with others and be praying for them...so it's a twofer :)


Please feel free to email me with anything that I can be praying along side you for, or leave a comment, so that others may join us in prayer over you!


Ecclesiastes 4:1212 A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.


Hope your week has been going well, and your weekend is refreshing and full of family and friend connection time.  We weren't designed to do life alone!  You can pray that same thing for Tyler and I as well.  


PS


  • Our church is doing a 1-service Sunday.  It is at 10 AM, outdoors, lunch is provided afterwards.  If you'd like to join us, you're more than welcome!  


  • any tips on what to do for constipated babies?  (She's not constipated anymore, but we feel that was what was up with her always crying this week since it's gone now that she 'let it out ;)' )
  • how many times did I use the word focus?!  ...guess it was a good thing that was the title :)

I have been trying to do the same thing. When somoeone or something comes to mind I am trying to stop right then and pray. No matter where or when....eyes open or closed...:)

You can by praying for Jair and I as we adjust and learn and deal with work and $$ and what God wants from us while we are here. There are some fun possibilities in the future, but I dont know those to get in the way of the NOW. I know God wants me to be a light in this dark country and I want to do HIS will!!! We are praying for you guys a well and cute little Emmas life (and her new little cousin growing!!)

<3 n miss you guys.
