Treasures In Heaven

Mat 6:20 NIV- But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.

As our years have progressed, we have continually seen that the things of this world are so fleeting. Time is but a passing wind, who can grasp it? Money seems to move just as quickly out as it does in. Even health can in but a moment deteriorate. This is what has happened in our world recently. First, it was just a lump. Then it was just a doctor's appointment. Then it was just some tests. Now it's just cancer...

Ever had a moment when that sick feeling in your stomach just won't go away and you know something is not right and there is absolutely nothing that can be done about it? That is the feeling that Randi and I had when the doctor's office called with the news that she has breast cancer. Randi is 27 years old, the most beautiful, sweet, joyous, caring, fun woman that I know and the mother to our precious 14 month old. She does not drink, nor does she smoke, she's in better shape than me! I share that not to say how good we are, for we know that life is a gift and we deserve nothing in it, but because her lifestyle has not sown what we are reaping. What we face is so much bigger than us; Who we know is so much bigger than our circumstances.

It is our sincere desire that this blog might serve as a platform upon which we can share our journey along the way with you. It is our hope that you will come to find, as we firmly believe, that the things of this world have no meaning outside of an eternal perspective. We pray that our God would, through our struggle and our story, encourage you to live for more than this moment, for more than yourself, for more than that which is seen. We pray that you might store up for yourself Treasures In Heaven.


  1. Love the title! I can't think of a better example to handle trials in life than the way you both have started this journey. God is smiling and is so proud of you both for your courage and faith in him. As if being your friends hadn't blessed our lives enough already, your faith through this is such a sweet reminder of how I can fully trust the Lord every day in every circumstance. Love yall!
