Trey Tuesday - January 28, 2014


In 2 Samuel 6 King David was worshiping the Lord as he celebrated a return to fellowship with God.
David couldn't contain himself!  He did nothing wrong in how he worshiped, it just didn't appear as others expected!

Ever have that in your life?  Your actions or words being misinterpreted?
We are so very, very blessed to have spent last weekend with Trey and the extended Mitlo family at a military event in Washington D.C!  Festivities included attending a Promotion to Colonel ceremony of Trey's Uncle Bob!  :)  With Generals in our midst, protocol was of utmost importance.  Especially while the General was speaking!

Well....enter our very own Young Warrior.  He was simply growing weary of sitting still for such a long time, holding it together amidst cousins and grandparents and aunts and uncles and wide open spaces to stretch those energetic legs!  Like David, Trey couldn't contain himself!  He did nothing wrong in how he breathed, it just didn't appear as others expected!  Perhaps his impatient exhale was a littttttttttle loud and long and MAY have sounded like a yawn during the General's speech.....but Trey meant no disrespect!  :)  (Although, the audience certainly appreciated Trey's good timing!)  :)

Trey spent the rest of the evening laughing, playing, eating, playing, eating, dancing, eating, etc!  PRAISE GOD for this "sick" child living an undignified, unashamed, uninhibited life!  :)

As we pray for Trey and his continued good health this week, please also take a look at your life and the health of your relationship with the Colonel/General/Chief/Lord of Lords/King of Every Army!  Do you live an undignified life for Him?  Unable to be still and quiet because you just have to speak God's Name and share His Word and long to serve His people?

Thank you for joining us on Trey's journey!  Please be praying for peace and wisdom as Jay and Rachel prayerfully prepare for a clinical trial meeting at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia next week.

"David said to Michal, “I will celebrate before the Lord. I will become even more undignified than this"  2 Samuel 6:22

Trey Tuesday - Jaunary 14, 2014

What's for Breakfast?
Worried about what's for breakfast on December 1, 2014?
Of course not!  We don't need to waste our time and energy worrying about something
so far away! Many breakfasts will come and go between now and then!
Some will be extravagant Easter or Mother's Day buffets at restaurants.
Others will be a quick coffee and breakfast sandwich on your way to work.
And if you're like Trey, you may even eat a few frozen waffles sometime! :)
It sounds silly to worry about what we will be eating.
For some it is a real concern, though.

I am blessed to have had the opportunity to serve at a local food pantry today. It is amazing and humbling to participate in this vital organization!  It all works because people share what they have so others will not have to worry about what they will eat.  Their needs are met before they even ask!  :) 

"Give us this day our daily bread" 
prays Jesus in Matthew 6:11.  Asking God.  Daily.
Let's continue to ask God daily for Trey to be healed, for a treatment study in Pittsburgh and for strength and health and hope for the whole family! :)
Trey's not worried about what's for breakfast or what he will wear (or not wear!)!
Go ahead - receive God's daily bread aka frozen waffles with reckless abandon!  :)

"And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek His kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well."
Luke 12:29-31

Trey Tuesday - January 7, 2014

Silly, spontaneous Trey....Jay often writes of Trey's favorite outfit = nothing!  :)
Our dreary winter landscape is pretty bare these days, too.  You can see forever through the empty trees and bushes.
And our de-Christmas-ed house shows every dusty nook and cranny that was hidden by the festive decorations.
Despite Trey's naked condition as he runs around the house, he carries a heavy diagnosis inside.
How are you today?  Despite your coverings or decorations, how are y-o-u?
God knows what you are battling...He knows, He cares and He wants to heal you deep inside! :)

Please keep praying for Trey's healing!  :)
Please also pray for a treatment option for Trey in Pittsburgh!
And as always, please pray for Trey's family!
"Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to Whom we must give account."  Hebrews 4:13
