seeing dreams fulfilled

Never would I have imagined…

Despite the struggles that we have been through these past few years, we have determined in our hearts that “we can not be defeated and will not quit”. In the midst of the biggest challenges of our lives, we have found that as long as we continually look to God, nothing is impossible and with Him, ALL things truly are possible.

Tonight was a moment that I thought was worth sharing. We have had many amazing moments in this past month, ones that I wish didn’t take so much time to chronicle. (So happy that we have twitter and facebook) However, as Cliff shared with 12 male students during an after school program in inner-city Albany, NY this evening, I realized once again that we are created for such a time as this. Both of our backgrounds are those of statistical failures. We were from broken families with many different kinds of abuse and heartache, the ones that “won’t make it”. Not that we are saying we are even close to perfection, but we have overcome such huge odds that were against us, both as individuals and as a couple. It was surreal to share with these teens, ones that have bigger odds against them than we ever did. Yet to watch them respond to Cliff’s message by writing down these dreams/goals and then talk about their plans to attain them was so extremely purposeful. It is what we were created to do.

And it is wonderful to be doing it….

Thank you to ALL of you who help us to reach out to others. You are going with us and fulfilling a vital part. Thank you!
