Our New Website

We have finally set up our website. There is still much work to be done, but it is up. You can go to it at www.cooke.ministryhome.org . We will add a link to the side bar as well.

I am sorry I have not posted anything new in awhile (there was a request) : ) I will have to say that we have been learning much through this process but for me, some of it is so personal it literally is painful at times. In a good way, but almost embarrassing. God continues to refine my heart and I see sin that I have never seen before. Sometimes I want to look at others and say, "But God what about them?" I feel JUST LIKE MY BOYS WHEN I DO THAT. They are constantly pointing the finger at one of their brothers when they get caught arguing with each other. I will say this: This battle that I am going through spiritually is learning how to love others. And not just be kind to them or even to overlook offenses ( I'm getting really good at that) : ) But to love like Jesus loves; To see people the way Jesus sees them. Jesus loves unconditionally and when He was offended and spit upon and beaten, He loved. Enough to die for them. He had compassion and went out of His way to love. He had mercy. He had NO pride. Love is not selfish and I am learning that. I will end there and share more about that in the future. Dave has been saying forever, that he wants to post something but he is SO busy with work and raising support, he doesn't have much time. I'll get him to post something soon though.

If you are a regular visitor (or even a new visitor), we love to read your comments. It always encourages us to hear from you.

Blessings to you all.....

Hey Christina! I just wanted to let you know that I was checking in on you and was able to read through most of your entries. You are such an encouragement to me. Before I met you many years ago, I can honestly say that I had never known anyone with such a passion to know and imitate Christ. I know that we are always to keep our eyes on Christ, but we also need Christian mentors, and you have indirectly and directly been that to me. I appreciate you more than you will ever know!! Love, Candis

Christina,

Thank you for your comment on my blog.

When I checked out your own blog to see who this kind person was that left the sweet comment, my mouth flew open and I smiled at how amazing God is...you see many months ago before I even started blogging it was your site that I read that inspired me.

My husband and I had just returned from a 'Weekend to Remember' and being the zealot that I can be, wanted to sell everything and move to Arkansas to work for Family Life Today. Of course this wasn't from the Lord :O),so I ended up reading about other peoples journies instead. You were the first blog that I ever looked at regularly.

What a blessing, a divine appointment. I look forward to getting to know you and your beautiful family.

In Him, Joanne
