All the results from Javier's test are back...

Everything appears fine!

He still has some tests left to do on his heart, but he's feeling better and back to work.

Perhaps those tests will give us some answers or... maybe it's just one of those things that happen?

He is back to biking, I'm a little nervous about that but it's a big part of his life and the doctor didn't say to stop. He has a big race next Sunday. Please keep him in your prayers.

I've been busy working on VBS, reading the director's manual and seeing what all needs to be done. This Sunday I'm making an announcement and doing a skit in the main service to promote a VBS volunteer meeting coming up. I pray I don't pass out! I get VERY nervous in front of people.

My heartfelt prayer: Dear Jesus, I can't help but laugh that I find myself giving an announcement this Sunday. You do know I get super nervous and start talking funny in front of a crowd, right? I can't promise to sound like a pro, but what I do promise is that I'm going to rely completely on you. I'm going to do my best and not worry about the rest. I trust you to be right by my side. I believe it's not just me giving that announcement but us together! If I completely fail and even fall on my face, it won't be a failure to me, because I'm drawing closer to You. Needing You, wanting You, expecting You and counting on You and You alone! I love you Jesus! With smiles, Jennifer

You will do GREAT. God calls us and then HE does the rest.

I will be praying for you. And by the way you gave your Dad some excellent advice, it's hard but knowing our Loved ones are Happy in Heaven and that they want us to be Happy here is a BIG help in the transition of moving on.

Many Blessings

Jennifer, I will continue to pray for Javier, but I am so glad the tests came out good. About you making an announcement Sunday, your Mama used to get so nervous, too, when she had to speak; but look at how things turned out. Like you, she just put her confidence in the Lord and trusted Him to help her, and WOW! she became a well-known and sought after speaker and author. When we are faithful in the small things to honor God, He is ever faithful to us. I'm very proud of you to take on this endeavor (directing VBS is a big task); I know your Mama would be very proud of you, too.

Jennifer, this is good news about Javier. I've been praying for God to use that incident as a reminder of his tender loving care.

You'll do fine on Sunday. I don't like public speaking either, but have found that the anticipation is worse than the real thing. Your priorities are straight and that's what counts. You will make a great VBS director.
