Trey Tuesday - August 20, 2013

What Do You Smell Like?
(PLEASE do not respond with your answer!!)  :)

I had an "encounter" with an oil filled air freshener the other day.  The encounter left me marinated (clothes and hands) in a long-lasting, non-wash-off-able aroma!!  Good thing it was my favorite scent!  :)

What about you?  What do you smell like!?!?
As we pray for Trey and his family this week, let's praise God that they spread the aroma of Christ wherever they go!  (And of course, please keep praying for Trey's complete healing!)  :)
Just imagine any of those nurses or doctors or hospital staff thinking they were going to be grumpy one day...and in walks Trey!  :)
Just imagine a heavily burdened parent encountering Rachel and her uplifting smile and words of wisdom!  :)
And just imagine a poor unsuspecting soul thinking they were juuuuuuust going to smile at Jay at Panera's and say, "Hello! How are you?" :)
Can you just sense the heavenly influence being shared at that opportune moment?

What about you?  What do you smell like!?!?!

"For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing;"
2 Corinthians 2:15

Bundle Up!

No, I am not talking about winter!  It is still glorious summertime! Enjoy the beautiful, warm sunshine! :)
Am I speaking of "Bundling up" with a Verizon Triple Play!?  Nope!
How about a little bundle in scripture?
(You) "will be bound securely in the bundle of the living by the LORD your God"
1 Samuel 25:29
Ahhhh, more comforting than a down blanket in the winter, more efficient than high speed Internet...bundled by and with God!! :)
Please keep Trey bundled with God this week and always, for powerful treatments and strength in therapy!
And for Joe and Bella as they start back to school next week!
And for Rachel as she prepares to send Trey to preschool!
And for Jay as he listens for God's calling in ministry and employment!
"You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you."
Isaiah 26:3

Trey Tuesday - August 13, 2013


What's your favorite kind of music?  Can you hear the harmony in the vocals and the instruments?
It's a pleasant combination of individual elements, isn't it?

Just imagine Jay and Rachel at home with Joe and Bella and Trey every day at this point in the summer...harmony?
PRAISE THE LORD their home is just like any "normal" home - filled with antics and bickering and giggles!  :)
PRAISE THE LORD that Trey is healthy enough to be a self-diagnosed "stinker" pressing his siblings' buttons!  :)
Harmony?  At times!  :)  You bet!  :)  Rachel's awesome photographs capture it at times!  :)

How are you with those around you?  Harmony?
At work?  Harmony?
At church?  Harmony?

As we pray for Trey this week, please pray that there is the PERFECT harmony of effective cancer killing treatments!  :)
And powerful healing in Trey!  :)
And harmony between Trey's doctors and nurses and therapists!  :)
And for harmony with God for each member of Team Mitlo One!  :)

"Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another."
Romans 12:14-16
