God yet again answered my prayers and thank you to those who prayed with me. All went well and with joy and peace with babysitting our grandbaby. I had asked for prayer because we had seen him only twice in his life and never for long, so we knew it would be quite a shock to him and adjustment for us. He is a very busy little man but we had happy moments and even an ever so brief nap. All is well and God remains constantly and perfectly good!❤❤❤
My son grew an inch overnight. Seriously. And don’t get me started on his shoe size. I should have invested in Nike- shoes, cleats, ugh!
I realize my son is becoming a man. He sounds like a frog when he talks. I will only hear the voice I knew as my son’s from recordings I had taken. He pays attention to his appearance. He has girls interested in him. He is growing up.
But I am not sad that I am losing my little boy who I wanted my whole life since high school graduation. I am hopeful that I have a young man who will be and is a good man, a good friend, a good husband, a good father, a good American and most of all a good Christian. This was always my goal, not to keep him forever but to give him to God to become a man God loves and blesses. And after many conversations with my son, we are definitely headed the right direction. I am so thankful!!❤
Well, I met most of my spring cleaning goals last week during spring break. Alsi, we got a lot of playing and visiting friends done. And I cleaned out my mom’s gutters, swept off the roof and weeded for her home. It felt great getting those things completed.
And now, back to crazy. It all begins again. Today we get back to school, PE, church, consults and baseball etc. Big days this month. Next month starts clearing up a bit and I am looking forward to that. No word on Steve’s daughter, so I guess she isn’t needing me to watch the baby after all for April and May like she had said, but maybe that will change, who knows but God?
So here we are at busy. At least we are going into it decluttered and cleaner. Somehow it feels better and lighter. Great stuff. God is good!!❤❤❤
We had a gig tonight and my son’s dad messed up our weekends again so Blue (our dog) had to come with us to the gig. The gig was 7pm-11pm in Kissimmee, so was a late night for all of us, especially when the kids and Blue are in bed by 9pm. So I had no idea how it would all work out. And Blue was great, and after much prayer that he would not try to eat any tiny dogs, he was fine all night. And he got a bunch of attention and love also… so glad we got him bathed before we went. A great night and I am thankful. God is good at helping with huge things and these little tiny details. Praise God!😄❤
I am so very thankful for so many blessings in my life.
Some blessings at the time were disguised as curses. But God knew what He was doing.
Some of the biggest wounds of my life became the greatest blessings.
So many blessings were taken for granted and left unacknowledged and unnoticed.
Yet blessings they were and I look back on them and appreciate God’s consistent love.
He has remained the most faithful Person of my life and only true lover of my soul.
Better late than never at thanking God for everything…the good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful.
All those things were there on purpose and made you the precious gift you are.
Such is the love of God. Thank you, God!!!♥
God blessed us with a rain day, a day off of PE. I am happy because my sinuses around my eyes are going nuts right now and I needed some time alone with God to just breathe. I had to reset. My mind has played some reruns and wrong channels lately and it was really getting me weighed down and feeling far from my Savior. So He gave me this morning off to get my heart into contrite mode and give everything to Him, confess and just repent. I told a friend about it. And God forgave me (as evidenced by the feeling of a smile and burden lifted) and we are back. And God is so precious and so good and loves us so much. I feel Him close and am so thankful and want to give Him glory for His love and grace and just compassion on us. He may be the only one in the world that loves me and that would be enough, all I ever need. He loves that well. 😄❤❤❤
I am grateful for every happiness and every pain. There must be both. Without the pain, we cannot treasure deeply the pleasure. We cannot know happiness fully without some endurance of unhappiness. It is the way of it. I am grateful. Each step was designed by God’s choosing but also our choosing. We are a contributing part of the decisions of our journey’s payhway. And I am grateful to God for that also. I respect His power and wisdom after I see how I screwed up what He had planned beautiful. I am grateful and love God all the more for everthing. ❤
