I just want to take a minute to let anyone who stumbles over here tonight that I am so thankful for the peace I have had this past week. It was so hard to go away for a week and just let everything go on without me. No e-mails, no facebook, no blog reading! But I knew that I was supposed to go away and just let it all be. It would all be here when we arrived back home safe and sound.
I was right.
During the first days of being home God was able to really show me some things and it was because I had a new perspective. It was like the scales had fallen from my eyes.
Now I dont know what God is going to do.
What we are going to do.
But its okay.
Really, I feel so much better.
I have such peace.
He loves us.
He loves "little G" and its going to be okay.
God has allowed me to e-mail with a new confidante and that has been an encouragement.
He knew I needed someone who really understood some of the hard things weve gone through this year and His timing was perfect.
I am thankful for my dear husband and family. We had some great times together this weekend and I am sad tomorrow is Monday. My daughter and her husband went out to dinner with us and we had such a great time. Then we had supper last night. P has been watching Alton Brown and we are enjoying the new recipes. I made the blueberry buckle....... again. P fried a turkey and I cubed sweet potatoes, tossed with olive oil and salt and baked in the oven. Beans and creamed corn from Mom and Dads summer garden.........
I went to church this morning by myself and was moved to tears that a family who's wife was home sick asked me to sit with them and enveloped me like I was family. God continues to sneak up and let me know Im not alone in this.
Just so thankful.
If you knew me youd know that its all God.......
