I'll call you right back, I mutter to Jon. You've got to be kidding me, I shout to anyone within earshot.
As I step out of my dusty van, throwing the 50th fruit strip wrapper back on the floor board and look up, I see ashes and framing where the Jackson's newly purchased (and paid in full, mind you) Suburban and GTWO trailer once stood. As I stand there in utter shock, unable to move my feet, a thousand thoughts race through my head........they. just. had a fire. It was only a few years ago, their home was up in flames, and now their new car and trailer -- with ALL their inventory -- is mere pile of dust and metal.
After recently deciding to launch their clothing line into the mainstream market, Robb and Marie Jackson have experienced their fair share of trials (I mean honestly. Who has TWO fires in such a short time frame?!?!). But alas these two stand firm. Stand firm in His word, and shout in Jesus name, that they will not be moved. These two are the poster children for trusting in God's faithfulness...and how amazing is our God that works everything for HIS glory. Because, in spite of what could've been tragic -- losing all of their inventory for upcoming shows, God steps in and, in a way that only He can, blesses this family out to spread the Good News.

few, ahem, some, of my favs from the day....
