Trey Tuesday - December 18, 2012

Jay and Rachel, Did You Know?

"I, the LORD, am your Savior, your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob."
Isaiah 60:16

Jay and Rachel did you know when you said, "I Do" your first born would fear all mascots?
Jay and Rachel did you know when you said, "I Do" your girl's spunk would cause you much growth?
Did you know that your open home would host both old and new?
The life that you had chosen, would soon be turned askew?

Jay and Rachel did you know that your baby boy would one day battle cancer?
But Jay and Rachel did you know that that baby boy would shine and soar through all things?
Did you know that your baby boy would be lifted in prayer worldwide?
This child that you've delivered, brings Joy and Hope to life!

Jay and Rachel did you know?

Team Mitlo prays, and cheers you on, wears bracelets red and gold...
The Facebook posts, the phone calls too, the love won't ever cease!

Trey's friends do you know that Trey gets his strength from the Lord of all creation?
Trey's friends do you know that the Lord can heal all that burdens you, too?
Do you know that the Christmas Child is God's gift to receive?
Jesus Christ, that Baby, is your Great I Am!

To conclude this Trey Tuesday, PLEASE watch this video on brings Christmas and Easter together!  :)

Trey Tuesday - December 11, 2012

Joy to the World!

Such an awesome song and amazing concept!
Oh, that the world would live with joy! :)
Or that shoppers would co-exist with joy! :)
Or that drivers would navigate with joy! :)
Once again, we look to Trey for his example....Look at that photo and try not to smile!  :)
Despite Trey's circumstances, he has joy! :)
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds"
James 1:2

God's joy is plentiful enough for everyone!  :)
"rejoicing because God had given them great joy."
Nehemiah 12:43
As we pray this Trey Tuesday, yes, please continue to pray for great results with Trey's treatments!
"Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be made full."
John 16:24
Please also pray for Trey's dentist trip and all that could occur there (even with a typical 4 year old!)  :)
"leap for joy"
Luke 6:23
(ummm.....that may not be the best dentist verse!?!?)  :)
And continue to pray for Joe and Bella in this journey.
"Gladness and joy will overtake them"
Isiah 35:10

"the LORD had given them cause to rejoice"
2 Chronicles 20:27
And for Jay and Rachel and decisions they always need to be making.
"You have made known to me the paths of life; you will fill me with joy in Your presence."
Acts 2:28
And then, turn off the news tonight, or skip the Facebook updates and focus on an early Christmas gift to you:  J-O-Y!
"For you make me glad by your deeds, O LORD; I sing for joy at the works of your hands."
Psalm 92:4

"I have spoken these things to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be made full"
John 15:11

Trey Tuesday - December 4, 2012

Who's Your Stewart?

I hope you took the chance to read about the awesome and creative Christmas antics going on at the Mitlos these days (instead of that pesky little Elf creature).  Here it is in a nut shell from Rachel :
The kids got a letter in the mail from Stewart.  Stewart works for Santa but is so shy he doesn't want to be seen.  He's not here to check on behavior, but rather make sure the kids know why we really celebrate Christmas and to take a gift list back to Santa.  Everyday, the kids have to find Stewart's box.  

Do your kids count on the Elf?
Or perhaps the big guy himself in his red suit and white beard?

What about you?
Who knows your heart's desires?
Who do you trust to make sure everything turns out the best way possible?

As we pray for Trey this Trey Tuesday, please ask the King of the Universe, God Almighty, for His very best for Trey!
"Christ Jesus, who died--more than that, who was raised to life--is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us."
Romans 8:34
