Anyway, this morning I watched Ed Young before I left and he was talking about what kind of people we surround ourselves with and it was incredible too~ He asked are you surrounded by adders or ladders? Adders are a type of snake like a viper. He was saying that adders are slithery, secretive, and gossipers and will only bite but that ladders will encourage you, and help you out of the pit falls of life. I am so thankful when I look around. Just the last 2 weeks we have had some of our family visiting from Oklahoma. My parents, my sister, and Kevin's sister and family. They are definitely all ladders for us. God has used our family to encourage us. I am so grateful for them! Ed Young was talking about how God uses pits in our life to build character in our lives. Even though I don't feel like we are in a pit right now I definitely feel like God is developing character in our life. Ending all of this Ed was talking about being loyal to God. How we depend on God being loyal to us but we continue to fall because we are not loyal to Him. That's my last thought for you - Be loyal to God this week!!
