Each relationship between two persons is absolutely unique. That is why you cannot love two people the same. It simply is not possible. You love each person differently because of who they are and the uniqueness that they draw out of you.

William P. Young, The Shack

Just because you’re in a battle doesn’t mean you’re fighting

"Fighting is so much more than getting through the trials. Fighting is not allowing you feelings to push you down, fighting is doing everything you feel you can’t do, fighting is believing in the face of impossible situations, fighting is being unshakable and not having your day ruined by circumstance.

 I didn’t realize there is no choice. I am either fighting or surrendering. And surrender isn’t even an option. So now I am fighting to become a fighter, fighting to overcome my feelings and weakness, fighting to believe, fighting to overcome, fighting to step out in faith, fighting to be who I really am, fighting to live the life Christ has bought for me. "

Lord teach me day by day.

Well we now have two new students here at the ranch! Fernando,came about 3 weeks ago maybe a month ago, pretty wild boy. He loves loves loves to pick on the other kids and thinks it is hilarious. He is like the kind of kid that you try to scold but he just makes you laugh, but wow sometimes hes a stinker.
 Then I think on Monday Juan Jose arrived here, he is 4 years old and super cute. He is a loud one and loves to eat. But we have to be careful with Juan Jose when he eats because he has a cleft palette. He has had one surgery for the soft part of his palette (his upper lip), but is having a second surgery for his hard palette (the roof of his mouth) in May. Right now, when he eats, all of his food goes up that hole in the roof of his mouth and goes up...into his ears, sinuses, etc. and gets infected. But since he is 4 he probably would have a hard time in the dorm with all the older boys and needs more attention towards because he needs to be cared for a bit differently Johnny (our school principle) and Amber(teaches the lowest level of kids pre-k ish) offered to house him!! So he is living with them for now until he can understand and is old enough to be in the dorm. How awesome!! Its so rad that they are doing that! Its a lot of work and responsibilities. They already are teachers and always busy and now have a boy to care for, so please be praying that they can properly take care of him. please pray also that they don't become overwhelmed but stay full of joy and continue having strength from God because they will get exhausted and weak, but thats whats so awesome we have a helper at all times! Our strength!

God wants to bless us with unspeakable joy.
The joy is His, and the Glory is His but when we live in His Presence He gives them to us!
Lets let him fully live in us!

1 peter 1:8-9
and though you have not seen Him you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your souls.
