Papa’s “Home”!

Filed under: Uncategorized — by andrewandtiffanyporter @ 2:54 pm

My dad is back from Kuwait and we couldn’t be happier!  He spent 2 years there and was able to get certifications that have really helped him land a new job in the states…he is working in New Orleans for NASA!  He is auditing their processes-such a cool job 🙂  He came over for a couple of days to see Jack for the first time and hang out with his “little man.”  It was such a sweet time for us all.  Will loved playing with Papa-they played soccer, read books, and a lot of tickling was involved!  I am so thankful for our time together and thankful that my dad is safe and sound.  However, he has already received another job offer back in Kuwait…is it bad to pray against this?!   Ultimately, I want him where the Lord wants him…but, it sure was nice to have him here.

Forgiveness.

Filed under: Uncategorized — by andrewandtiffanyporter @ 6:17 pm

Matthew 18 tells us-Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times. 

It’ so neat (and very humbling) to see how the Lord uses your kids to show you so much of what He has for you.  Lately, He has been using Will to remind me how important forgiveness is and the healing it provides.  Will is so quick to say he is sorry and ask for forgiveness…totally un-prompted.   It amazes me everytime.  Forgiveness isn’t something that comes so naturally for me… but, it is so evident that I MUST forgive because I have been forgiven of so much and continue to be forgiven daily.  Thank you Lord for your forgiveness and for continuing to work in me.  

Also, here are a few family pictures we had taken while Andrew’s grandpa was in town from Michigan.
