Straight from the Heart

A more difficult time our family has never passed through. We are all trying to find the positive and laugh when we can. With all of the updates of good news and fun pictures posted on the blog there has also been many tears, heart ache and pain. All of your support and prayers have been a great blessing to our family. When the Lord promises us that he will pick us up and carry us through hard times, we have felt the Lord working through all of you. We came across a song this week that express' what we as a family have felt this past month and we would like to share it with you:

He knows your heart, He knows your pain, He knows the strength it took just to simply breathe today. He sees the tears that you cry, He knows your soul is aching to know why, He hears your prayers Each humble word, When you said you couldn't face another day He understood, He knew the paths that you walk blind, Though you've felt alone He's never left your side. He knew there'd be moments when no earthly words could take away your sorrow And no human eyes could see what you're going through When you've taken your last step and done all that you can do he will lift your heavy load and carry you, He'll bring you peace and leave you hope And through the darkest night He'll comfort you until you know the sun will rise and each new day. You will have the strength to live again and in the moments when no earthly words can take away your sorrow And no human eyes can see what you're going through When you've taken your last step and done all that you can do He willl lift your heavy load and carry you. He hears you when you're crying in the night He hears you when your soul longs to fight, til the morning will come and the light of the dawn reassures He knew there'd be moments when no earthly words could take away your sorrow and no human eyes could see what you're going through When you've taken your last step and done all that you can do He will lift your heavy load and carry you.

We miss all of you dearly, and also love our new friends here in Denver, the Lord has never left us alone. We will be forever grateful for your faithfulness and prayers in our behalf. Please continue to share the plan of happiness with those you come in contact with.
all of our love,
Cord, Lisa, Josh, Jake, Justin, Marne' and Colton

Josh, Keep fighting and working hard. There are many people here in Utah praying for you. You don't know me, but your dad was my seminary teacher at Ogden High about 14 years ago. He is a great man and I am sure that he has passed that on to you. In the words of your father, Remember: The Lord Loves You & The Gospel's True!! When all the world around you is crazy and unstable remember those words and nothing else matters. Love ya!
