Ps.34:19 "Many adversaries come to the one who is righteous, but the LORD delivers him from them all."
We are not promised a conflict free life here on earth. The bible clearly states that our battle is not flesh and blood but those evil forces around us. This verse is a great reminder that we who are striving to be righteous will have many adversaries (those who oppose us) around us. However, the end of the verse is also true- "But the Lord delivers them from them all." No, sometimes the deliverance may not be in the form that we desire or even the way we desire it, but God does provide deliverance to us. So, if you are being attacked by outside forces, remember God will deliver! His ways and timing is not always the same as ours, but keep trusting that he has a plan in place! Don't allow your adversaries to destroy your joy, your faith, or even your life. Cling to Christ and watch his plan unfold!

Over Spring break we had a memorial service in Mississippi for James' dad. We had the service at the church where his dad was saved. The people there were wonderful! We completely understood why Jim enjoyed spending time with them. It was a great and God-glorifying day!
After the memorial service, we headed to Florida for a few days of fun and relaxation. We stayed at a great resort! I got to meet some of James' friends that lived close to there. We had a fabulous time. I can't wait until we all get back together again! It was fun. Here are a few pics from the trip.
