We'll my mom will be heading to Spain today, to start her new life!  I want to be happy for her, but all I can think about is putting my father on a plane & never seeing him alive again.  Now that the day has come,  this whole ordeal is making me much more anxious than I had anticipated!  ;(. 

I hate goodbyes almost as much as I hate PTSD!!!!

On October 7th around noon, while at Iguassu falls, Brazil I was greeted by a butterfly.  It land on my hand & stay there for at least 15 minutes.  When it was time to go to our next destination I tried to blow this beautiful butterfly off my hand but it refused to leave.  Eventually I had to shake the butterfly off my hand.

That evening when when we returned to our hotel I got a message that a friend of
an incredible man of God, went home to be with Jesus.  The message came in around noon and that is the approximate time I was greeted by the butterfly.

God brings us peace in different ways.  To think that just maybe God sent me one of his beautiful creations to comfort me in the fact that it was time for such a special person to return to him, did comfort my soul!

I pray that God brings peace & comfort to anyone and everyone who has been effected by the loss of such an inspiring, caring, & faithful man, leaving us way too soon. May we all gain perfect understanding of the Lords mysterious plan one day.

God will continue to shine through you even from heaven Rolando Luna!!!

Blessed to have had the opportunity to travel with such amazing people.  In 7 days I have: been in two continents and two hemispheres, spent three nights in moving transportation, been in 6 airports, and to 3 amazing Brazilian cities with a countless number of the most amazing people imaginable (the Hoyt family which have been such a blessing in my life). Some are old friends, some are new friends but all are now forever friends. I also had the privilege of attending the most beautiful wedding I've ever seen! Congratulations James and Mariana!!!

So we are in the US, we survived a 2 hour flight to Rio with a 5 hour layover, a 9 hour flight to NC in which we survived customs, but Christina Hoyt got interrogated for trying to salvage her air plain snack box,  we are now jumping on a plain to TX hoping we can find an open flight to Phx.  I'm feeling so close yet so far away from squeezing my Dayday!,

Jesus I know you were bigger than any situation any diagnosis and any trial,  When I forget how powerful and faithful you are I will always let David smile remind me!!!

Calling all prayer warriors...

When David was sick I cried out to God for a miracle and many of my FB friends stood with us in prayer.  God granted David the miracle we cried out for. I'm asking all of my friends to take a minute and say a prayer for a friend of mine that needs God's healing touch right now!  May God hear our cries loud and clear.  David went from nearly dying to being fully recovered, alive and well, and blessing the world with his smile!!   I will never doubt my God and I will never loose my FAITH!!!


The kingdom can not afford to lose the soul!!!
