Well That Was Fast!

I know God will not give me anything I can't handle.
I just wish that He didn't trust me so much. ~Mother Teresa

To all you pray-ers out there THANK YOU ('Quyana' in Yu'pik)!!!!! God heard and God answered, "ZIP! POW!" (he, he, those two little words that pack so much punch were in one of the assignments from our reading class today, the kids thought it was funny, so did I, and it just so happens to fit here) Just like that. Wow, He answered! Sometimes you pray for years and other times you pray for hours. He heard you guys and all is well as of this morning! Thank you again for joining me in prayer.

Hum, so on that note since God is obviously listening to you all (call me an opportunist)... there's this seemingly homeless puppy I've got my eye one running around the village lately and he doesn't have a collar on and....well, I've decided I'm going to try to dog nap him tomorrow. Besides rumor has it they shoot the wandering dogs without collars so they don't 'pack up' and well, I keep seeing this poor puppy.... lol. Again, pretty sure Ani would be stoked as usual, he needs a little brother. Speaking of Ani, he is very excited tonight because today in the mail we got our brand spanking new skijoring harnesses one for him, one for me and we match... nerdy, I know. But watch out cause we are gonna be quite the duo when the snow flies, village entertainment I'm sure!

This pic is Ani running on the beach this weekend. We've been working on him being off the leash once in a while and coming when I call him. He looks like a kangaroo here but this definitely not Australia.

"Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God's Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don't know how or what to pray, it doesn't matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That's why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good." Romans 8: 26-28
