New Car.....


Our new car is a 2008 Ford Focus. Only it's silver, not blue.

*I would have pictures of our actual car, but the weather has not been cooperating. :)

Hey everyone, Robert again here. Just thought id say hi! Everything is going well here. We are all anxious to come home as you can probably imagine. I've been thinking, and just thought id spread a little love here.

What are you living your life for? think about it. Honestly. Have an answer? Ok. Now I want you to take a little trip down imaginary lane and ponder some things with me, if you will.

Lets say you wake up tommorow, and everything is gone. Your family, your car, your house is still there, but everything is empty. You run to the phone, phones not there. Everything you hold dear is gone. What would you do? Would your life fall apart? When the lights are off what do you still have? When noone is looking what do you have? What are you truely living you life for? Money? Power? Good job? Good family? HOT husband? Attractive wife? Well behaved kids? Playstation 3? Now all those things are gone what do u have?

The point im trying to get at is this. If you are living your life for anything else but for Jesus Christ, you are on the road to a lifetime of struggle and heartache. You dont believe me? Look at the world around you. Look at the illustrious "american dream". It doesn't matter what car you drive, how big your house is, or anything like that. what matters is your relationship with Jesus Christ, the one who did die for our sins. He is the only one who can bring you true freedom. So many people have holes inside of them they try to fill with things of this world. And all they get is instant gratification which eventually goes away and the hole resumes. It is like an addiction.

We as humans have such a need to fill that gap with anything. And as Americans, it is easy for us. we are the richest nation in the world. How dangerous this is for us. Jesus said this ," It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle then for a rich man to get into heaven." Those are the saviours words right there. He was a lot better with words then i will ever be. I guess thats what happends when you are God's son.

On a note completely unrelated to this, Just thought id give a shout out to my wife. I love you very very much and am praying for you. You are an incredible woman and you mean everything to me. I cant wait to get home and be with you again.

To the rest of you all I love you all incredibly! Keep your heads up and have an AWESOMELY COOL FANTASMIC CHRISTMAS!! I will be thinking about you all.

In Christ-


ps sorry for the preachyness...nothing but love ...promise

And a week later....

A week after our accident we had to evacuate my parents house due to flooding and trees falling about four feet from the house. To get out we had to walk down the train tracks that run behind my parents property. My mom met us at the next road over. It was not a fun day.

These pictures were taken right off the back steps of my parents house.

The aftermath....

Here are the photos of the car after the accident. Thank God we all walked away!

Even after all the rolling the doors still opened and the only window that broke was the very back one. The ones on the side popped off whole. God was definitely protecting us.
