What an encouragement it is to know that this same God sees and knows all things. Just as He was sovereign over the lives of the people in Genesis, so He is sovereign over all the details of our lives today.

"... you are Peter and on this rock I will build my church..."
or his business (Luke 5:3,10)
Like when Jesus was grieved at Peter's inability to stay awake
while He was praying in the Garden (Mark 14:37).
Or when Peter was proud and overconfident in Luke 22
and Jesus said to him,
"Simon, Simon, satan has demanded permission to sift you like wheat."
The last time (John 21:15-17) Jesus called him Simon
is when the disciples fished all night and caught nothing....
back on the beach Jesus asked him,
"Simon, son of John, do you love Me.?"
Three times Peter affirmed his love for the LORD.
But from that point on......Peter, the rock, lived up to his name.
He was a leader amongst the disciples, he preached the gospel fearlessly,
he boldly confronted Jewish authorities
and did not hesitate to judge sin in the churches.
Through Peter's ministry the NT church was opened to the Gentiles.
Sometimes I wonder what the LORD's name is for me....
It is written down in the Lamb's Book of Life.
"And if anyone's name was not found written in the Book of Life,
he was thrown into the lake of fire." Rev. 20:15
My parents named me Kathryn, which means"pure".
In high school I was mocked/teased and called "Polly Pure Body"
But I don't always live my life in a pure way.
Everybody calls me Kathy......but perhaps......
Perhaps some days the LORD would look at me
and see me acting like my old regenerate self....
and I would more appropriately be called
Greedy, or Selfish, or Critical.

Yesterday, on our way to CA, we viewed the marvels of God's creation from above the clouds. We commented on how neat it was to see the tops of the mountains poking thru the clouds. Well...because of dense fog at the Sale Lake airport and not enough fuel to circle for awhile....we diverted to Twin Falls Idaho, a VERY SMALL airport. Meanwhile our flight crew "timed out" which means in their words....NO ONE IS GOING ANYWHERE!! Didn't matter where you were headed or how angry you got or what you were going to miss or even if you were a grown man and cried!!
Leaving out lots of funny details.....two hours later two huge coach busses arrived to take us to Salt Lake City airport. SO.....we got to see Gods marvelous creation, again, this time close up. And it was still truly beautiful and amazing.
The pilot said. at first, that it was a two maybe 2.5 hr trip. The bus driver said 4 hrs and he was right. The bus kept overheating going up those passes. But we made it safe and are thankful.
We occupied ourselves by listening to the Gettys and finding out if you have the free version of Scrabble you can only play if you have I internet.

Jill was on her way in for her scheduled C section, with the three girls all strapped safely in their car seats, when she hit a patch of ice and ended up in a pretty deep ditch.....thankfully to the LORD.....the ditch was very full of snow. Everyone was ok. It was a scary time but another instance of God's sovereign care in our lives.
Here is a picture of Jared, attempting to light three little birthday candles with a TORCH!! Jill soon found some matches.
Eddy was fascinated by the candles as they kept coming back on and on and on and on. After many laughs and lots of spit we finally put them out with water.
