As of Feb. 2nd

I will be a City of Leavenworth Fire Fighter. I can't tell you how extatic I am about this. Thank you all for your prayers and support, and most of all praise to our wonderful mighty God, who has plans to prosper and not to harm those who seek His will. I can remember almost 2 years ago, still working in the heating factory here in town with the prison inmates being very confused as to why I didn't get a job with a good company that paid well, when my references and interview, and everything went well. I knew then that God had something good for me still, but wasn't sure what. Well, then I got the job with Leavenworth County EMS, and from there, this job with the LVFD. It's my dream job with one of only two Fire Departments I'd really like to work for.

So,

Thank You Father for You sovereign will. I completely put my life into your hands, because you are good, and your plans are better than mine. I love you Lord.

Cyall. Luke

Hi Luke!! CONGRATULATIONS!! God certainly does provide doesn't He? I am so excited for you...and proud of you. You are a wonderful example to those around you on how to do all you can to live a Godly life and serve Him in all you do. I know that the lives of those you will touch, both coworkers and rescuees will see Him thru you. So when do you start? Which station will you be in (I'm curious since you showed me the stations when I was there). Ok now...GO CELEBRATE! **me giving you excited hug** ha ha

Heavenly Father, thank you so much for loving us and for the perfect plan you have for us all. Please be with Luke and this exciting time in his life. Give him guidance, strength and safety to continue to serve you each day in this new job. In Christ's name, amen.

Hey Luke it is time to change your BIO...now it should read...
Worship Leader/Youth Pastor-Firefighter (nix the EMT)

Love Mom :D

Oh btw Georgia just put out a cd and she gave me one you should hear it! It is beautiful. She wrote all the songs and the music. Actually I believe the Lord gave her the songs out of her life stories and heart-ships (my version) I think I might send you one. ;) I should send you a link to their website! Will do.

Hey Luke,
I figured you were having cell phone issues b/c I tried to call to congratulate you on getting the job but got a funky message. Sorry you are dealing with all of that mess. Yes, it will be great to get reception in your own house. It is atrocious how much money and long-term commitments they ask for. Could you just switch to another company? I know the Gilberts use Sprint and seem to be mostly pleased w/ their service. Thanks for dropping me a note on my blog to let me know what's goin' on. I'll talk to you soon. cya later :-)

Luke, Steve and I are THRILLED for you. At dinner last night I was saying, "We need to pray Luke gets the firefighter job" and Ali says, "Mom, read his blog!" So I did. Your patience and faithfulness is pleasing to God...we are not in the least surprised that this dream has come true for you. Thanks, as always, for all you do for our kids, we are so grateful for you.

hey Luke, I want to put this on my site but not sure how to do it Tiffy had a similar deal on hers and I thought it was so cool. So I am going to send you a link and if it works and you get a picture puzzle...then you HAVE to put it together. You will get a kick out of it. I made it for Chrissy because of all people Chrissy will be able to relate to it the most. :) Well and Micah too.

And did you find your phone yet? Cause I need you to call me. Or me call you? Just need to know if I can? Your cousin Matthew (Matt from PA) might be writing you on your blog! :)
OK here it goes .... let me know if it works!!
Love Mom :D
