Verne, Adina, & their story

Last post, I shared about Verne & Adina...

a little bit about their story...

and how it affected me.

This past Sunday, we were so blessed to have them share. If you weren't able to be at our Easter Service, you can watch the video right here.

Grace Upon Grace

Pastor Mark and Verne laughing between takes. Hopefully we'll have a gag reel!

A couple weeks ago I was able to help film the testimony of some pretty amazing people. We set up 2 cameras, some lighting rigs, mic'd them up, and let the cameras roll. During the 2 and a half hours (or so) we spent there, I was...amazed.

Now when I say amazed, I'm not talking about an explosive fireworks spectacular, kind of amazement. I'm not talking about an incredible last second play that ends a football game, kind of amazement. I'm talking about a standing still, full of awe, time slowing down, kind of amazement.

The stories that Verne and Adina shared with us, I can only describe as, grace upon grace.

When you hear how their stories begin and think of where their story is now, you will think it is all grace.

When you hear of the pain and loss in their stories and how healing and thankfulness is the what they are experiencing now, you will think it is all grace.

When you hear of their struggles with the Lord and how they have come to know Him now as good and faithful, you will think it is all grace.

Well, that's what I thought anyway.

On Sunday April 5th at 9:15am, we'll be having our Easter Service at Roosevelt High School. Verne & Adina will be sharing their story there.

I Realize

Wrote this song a while ago. Changed the chords and here's what happened.

I messed up right at the beginning!

Oh well.

Thanks for listening

A song I wrote for my wife...

Baby, When You Close Your Eyes from Jared Miyamoto on Vimeo.

This is a song I wrote for my wife a while back. It's evolved a bit over the years...but at the time, we were on different islands and being apart can be tough on a relationship. Just trying to tell her how much I love her and that she's "the only one for me". Thanks for listening. -J

Holding my son...

Holding my son as he sleeps makes me wonder how God holds us as we go through life. Right now, my son doesn't understand that I'm holding him, he just knows that he is close to someone who loves him...and he is at peace.
