Ephesians 6:10-18

Matt got the big one.
Ephesians 6:10-18
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. 14 Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints,

1 Peter 1:3-5

Isn't it amazing that our imperishable inheritance is reserved in heaven for all who are born again?

1 Peter 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

1 Timothy 2:5

Praise God for our mediator - Christ Jesus our Lord!

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

Psalm 86:5-7

Psalm 86:5-7 

For You Lord are good, and ready to forgive,
And abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You,
Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer;
And give heed to the voice of my supplications!
In the day of my trouble I shall call upon You,
For You will answer me.

Isaiah 40:28-31

Emery's turn.

Isaiah 40:28-31

28 Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth
Does not become weary or tired.
His understanding is inscrutable.
29 He gives strength to the weary,
And to him who lacks might He increases power.
30 Though youths grow weary and tired,
And vigorous young men stumble badly,
31 Yet those who wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.

Colossians 3:1-3

Even though I haven't been posting about it, the boys and girl have been faithfully memorizing verses. So I'm going to do my best to catch up on those posts. Here's the first:
Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

Unfortunately, Emery's gymnastics career has hit a roadblock. She competed last year with Excel Silver and had gotten promoted to Excel Gold for this year. But due to some feet issues, she's got to take a break from competing for at least this year. She's pretty bummed about it, but I'm proud of her for trusting in God's sovereignty and goodness through it all.
However, last year, she received the award for Hardest Worker at her gym. I also very proud of that award! Great job Emery!

Trick or Treat

Matt and Emery still dress up for Halloween. Andrew still isn't interested in it though I suspect in a few years, he'll get into it again.
Matt was inspired by our good friend Mr. Bradley to be Clark Kent. Although he looks a tad like a crazy Clark.
Emery was inspired by our trip to Colonial Williamsburg to be a colonial young lady. She and Sandy made this outfit!
It's fun to dress up for these two! And it's fun to get candy...

CA Capital Air Show


I took my resident, hopeful Air Force Academy cadet and airplane pilot Matt, to the CA Capital Air Show again in Sacramento.

We got to see the USAF Thunderbirds in action.
They were very, very precise. It was amazing.

We also got to see the Royal Canadien Snowbirds.
I was impressed by how many of them could fly in formation.

Lots of fire is also impressive.

And the F/A-18 Superhornet was one fast plane. Apparently, it can go up to 1,190 MPH. It sure felt fast up close.
It was quite the inspiring and patriotic day. I truly respect and am inspired by the US military.
This clearly wasn't my best selfie, but Matt and I had a great time.
