And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. (Gen. 15:5)
Us and the grandkids -- Eli really needed a nap!
On a clear night, nearly 4,000 years ago, Abraham had a conversation with God. He was not able to conceal his frustration at the many years that had gone by since the Lord had first promised him a son. But although his attitude was less than gracious, the Lord did show grace to him, and told him to step outside the tent. There, beneath the blanket of stars, Abraham was told to look up, count, and never again doubt God's ability to do what He said He would do.
In January of 1998, this promise came to have rich meaning for our family. It was then we began the adventure of counting the stars and stepping out to trust God and see Him do great and mighty things for us. Through the years we have watched the Lord exceed all our expectations, in family, in ministry, and walk with Him.
The purpose of this website is to praise Him and share with our friends the opportunities, challenges, and blessings we have enjoyed and are even now facing in this grand adventure of taking Him at His Word.
