If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

Testament Tuesday

First of all I have to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY REBECCA!  Rebecca is my dearest and longest friend and today is her birthday.  Everyone should have a friend like my Bec.  Love you Rebecca and am blessed to call you friend.

So onto Testament Tuesday as we read through the book of Acts.  I think the thing that stood out to me the most was how God consistently used the persecution of the Christians to advance the spreading of the Gospel.  A couple times we saw where the believers were scattered and it was always followed by a statement about many more hearing about Christ through that.

So What does that mean for us?  Well let's think about it.  If I were a follower of Christ during those times, I would have had a very well mapped out plan as to how I was going to spread the word about Christ and it wouldn't have included persecution and running away.  I bet they weren't much different.

It makes me think of other times when I have had a plan that hasn't gone my way and reminds me that God's plans are far superior to mine.

Sorry this is short this week.  I am super tired and a little overextended.  I promise to do better next week. :)

Here are a few more vacation pics.
