JOSIE LOVE / JOSEPH - They should inspire you !!!

So last week was a big week for the Oatsvall's, Mayernick's and the 147 FAMILY ... Joseph got his hearing aids (see video below if you haven't already) and Josie Love got her viral loads tested ... The results came in yesterday and Josie's viral loads are so low that her HIV is un-dectable ... We have been waiting for that word UN-DECTABLE for a while now ... We have been praying and anticipating it with child like excitement ... Suzanne and I have talked a ton about what are we going to do to celebrate it ... AND WE WILL CELEBRATE HUGE  ... The praises are just falling from the sky !!!

I look at Joseph and Josie's world before and think of how MUFFLED it was in so many ways.  They both have this contagious spirit ... Their smiles are bigger than the sky and they make everyone around them joyful ... They each have reasons to just give up TRYING, but they never did ... They have given each day their ALL ... AND LOOK AT THEM NOW !!! Look at how they radiate CHRIST's love !!! I can't even begin to tell you all the lessons I have learned from them or how they SHOWED us an even deeper view of Christ ... I PRAY I AM NEVER TO OLD (or stubborn) TO LEARN FROM OUR LITTLE ONES!

It is hard to say either of their names w/ our just a slight giggle coming out (that is when they aren't into some kind of mischief - which is a little part of their charm) ...

I hope you take their story and use it to encourage the PASSION that the LORD has placed in all of us to have a spirit of JOY ...
