Yesterday, Spencer spoke to KidzRap at Little Rock Christian school. Karman Fegtley, a good friend of ours, has led this group during the past two years and they do all sorts of projects to benefit Arkansas Children's Hospital. Spencer gave his "testimony" about his experience with ACH but true to form, he talked less about himself and more about the experiences of the patients and how they benefit from anyone who gives to the hospital. He was AMAZING! I was in awe of his candor, poise and his ability to keep his composure in front of 200+ people. Incredible.
Cole received his script yesterday (although still a work in progress) for The Christmas Story. It is so neat to watch him dissect 121 pages and break it down into workable portions. He is not intimidated or concerned in the least and truly feels that this is what God is calling him to do!
Even in the midst of this trying economy and the continued health issues with Spencer, God is reminding me everyday that He has BIG plans.
Rev. Lavon Post says, "...it's easy to praise God AFTER the blessing comes, but God wants us to have a higher faith - to praise Him BEFORE the blessing comes. Our Father knows about our 'rubble' and He has plans to change these tough circumstances, to send us wonderful blessings in these areas. Why not take a walk through the wastelands of your life and praise Him NOW that He will bless these areas in the future? Sounds weird? No not really, if you do this, you will be truly living a life of faith."
Love that and I'm making it my goal.
