I received an e-mail yesterday and the title of it was "Six Months To CHRISTmas" (emphasis on CHRIST is mine!!!). It got me to thinking that in the next six months I sure HOPE things head in a totally different direction in our lives!!! One of our greatest HOPEs is that we'll have a brand new GRANDbaby....or babies....by CHRISTmas!!! Several of you have asked about the status of the adoption....and about all I can tell you is it's been a very....very....hurry up and wait process!!! Our kiddos are getting anxious....they already have a little girl's room (not sure if girl is gonna be singular, or plural....I'm hoping plural....even twins!!!)
What a happy, happy Nannie I'll be if we get twin girls!!!
Of course, I'm gonna be a happy, happy Nannie no matter what....
....'cause I already am!!!
Some have wondered how in the world I can have such a positive outlook with so much going on in our lives.....job loss....tight, tight budget....health problems of family members. I can sum it up in one word....one of the most important words in the life of a CHRISTian....JESUS!!!
I put my faith, HOPE, and trust in.....HIM!!!
Yesterday, as we waited on Mom to get thru the EGD, I worked on a couple of Bible study lessons....and would you believe that both of them....talked about PEACE....and HOPE?!?!?
Was that a coincidence?
I think not!!
I don't believe in those things.
I do believe wholeheartedly in Godincidences!
God knew I needed to read scripture about those topics right at that particular time!!! Plus....when we got back to the recovery, a friend of ours who is a nurse had just started working there 3 weeks ago!!! What a sweet blessing she was to come and give Pappy and me hugs and do a bit of explaining about what could be going on with Mom (by the way....tests were all negative!!!)
Our God is oh, so good!!!
I'm so blessed.
Thank you, precious Lord, for Your Peace, Your Love...
....and the gift of Your SON!!!
Hope each of you has a great weekend!!!
In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
