I DON'T HAVE A FIREWORKS FAITH


I don't have a fireworks faith.

It doesn't need pizzazz.

It doesn't need panache.

It only needs trust.

Kristy, you're right. Faith doesn't require pizzazz. However, I see your faith (and that of your husband, friends, family members) as being the most pizzazz-filled I've witnessed in a long, long time. Never underestimate the testimony of a quiet faith. You might be surprised to learn there are more fireworks going off in the quietness than you think. :) I love you girl - and I'm praying!

Hi Pretty Kristi,
Short, sweet and powerful. Indeed we are called to TRUST and OBEY and as the song says,...."for there is no other way..." Expect God's best today. Thanks for your display of great FAITH.

Now that is quotable!

Aunt Kristy and Uncle Milton, thank you for being transparent through your blog. I hear often from our church family how they follow your writings. They always talk about how moving and encouraging it is to read of your faith and your struggles.

We need more people to step and write like Paul and the other disciples did about trials, failures and God's faithfulness through it all. I love you and pray for you almost every day. Take care of mom and dad while they are visiting.

Ditto just as Janice said it!!!!

I love you Kristy and am so thrilled to come on here lately to see that you have blogged. I too have been blessed and taught through this journey on-line.

I'm still praying and believing for complete victory!!! Jeri

I agree with Janice--I see plenty of pizazz and fireworks in your faith!

Dear Ms. Kristy and Rev. Milton,

It's Beth Boyd McCown here. I don't know if you remember me, but I'm David and Carol Boyd's daughter. My husband, Brian, was your brother, Terry's youth pastor for a few years, too. I saw Kendra Rivers over Christmas break and she told me about your diagnosis. I am so blessed by your trust in God. Your blog is one of the most amazing ones I've read. Brian and I are no longer youth pastors, but God has arranged for us to enter military service in the next year. In fact, he'll be sworn in on Tuesday. Thank you for your testimony of "helping hands". That is what I feel I am to Brian. I'm praying for you and I hope for the love of Jesus to consume you with his joy! God Bless!

That's what I inherited from my Daddy. He trusted God more than anyone I ever knew.

Kristy, he lived 30 years with cancer. God still had a job for him to do. He jstu trusted God and got on with it, kind of like you're doing. Daddy was 89 when God finally called him home.

I miss him, but I've got the inheritance to keep me going. :o)

Daddy showed me what my Heavenly Father is like, too. So trust comes fairly easy for me. Oh I've had ups adn downs, but like you, in the end it comes to trust.

And I know in Whom I trust. :o)

Asd always, continuing to pray.

Your faith is a beautiful thing, Kristy. Thank you for your openness and sharing with so many people. What a great Christian witness!

You also have the sweetest family! You're truly blessed.
