December 28, 2020 At The Clinton Lake, Kansas

Uncle Allen Johnson was a former Chief of Firefighters before(Lawrence, KS). He served for 38 years if I remembered right. He, Aunt Robin, and Marley took us to Sir Rex Johnson's house(father of Uncle Allen). And from Sir Rex's house, approximately 3 miles away, where lake Clinton was located. It was terribly cold. Lake is manmade (1974) and it's beautiful! Wish we knew better to brought our thicker winter coats. 

Sia and Marley

Finally, Sia met Marley and they love each other like they been friends before. We are so glad that they like each other because most of the time nobody wants to play with Sia, it's all AJ.

I was very thankful God saved us from the fire, including our neighbors. I wasn't thinking that I allowed my son to go burn the papers in the backyard not checking if it is windy.

Keep Praying-Do Not Stop Asking

Keep praying, keep asking because your prayers are not being ignored by God. Those prayers are being heard by God and in His timing, He will answer them. I believed in the power of prayer. Prayer is one of the strongest weapons of Christian to carry all the time. You know there are many believers in Christ who are defeated. Even in their faces looks defeated. I know this because I been there. One of the reasons why Christians are defeated
