"The Mighty Angel and the little Scroll"

In Revelation 10 it talks about a MIGHTY ANGEL and a LITTLE SCROLL. When I read that, for some reason, my mind always reads "the little angel". I have no idea why, but it always gets turned around at that same place.

Maybe it's because I'm short, so my mind wants to find similarity?? I have not idea, but as soon as I start to read the chapter, it goes into detail over the look of the mighty angel. He gave a shout "like the roar of a lion". But he held out a little scroll.

The little scroll told a BIG STORY. It told of two witnesses, who would come and prophesy for 1,260 days and eventually be raised from the dead in 3 1/2 days.

Big things come in small packages!!

This week has been full of little messages from God.

Our "LAUNCH", originally scheduled for March, was pushed back to May.

At first we were sad, because we really want to "get started" and find out what the next couple of years look like. But then we understood the postponement was a gift from God.

Our water heater went out, and the cost for repairs was almost (to the penny) the exact amount of what we had saved back for the sitter (who will stay here for the two weeks we'll be gone for launch).

God had our backs again :) Actually He continues to hold us in His hands, which is better than guarding our backs! When those attacks come, I'm not sure we can handle them, even face to face. But God knows, and He holds us. He strengthens us. He protects us, while allowing us to grow.

So, in the meantime, while we are waiting for our LAUNCH, we continue to grow even when we feel so very little.

Prayer Requests:
Pray for partners in our mission (on the home front and abroad)
Pray for our future homestead in Italy (perfect neighbors, perfect apartment, perfect will)
Pray for our children as they prepare for a new lifestyle
Pray for the quick and perfect sale of our home/animals
Pray for the moving of other animals
Pray for continued finances
Pray for Spiritual Protection overall
