In 2009 one of the “big kids” that played in our front yard, began to live in our house. Our children were: 7,9,11,13,15 at the time. This young man moved almost seamlessly into our lives and hearts. He brought amazing strengths and determinations. Instant big brother!
“I want that child,” I had told God, and we were given 5 precious years with him, before he bought his 1st house. Not too long after, a beautiful wife was added… and now, the gift of a grandchild ❤️ Sweetness is being a Grandma.
Ah, the joy of seeing God fulfill our hopes and dreams… years of prayers! Far beyond what could possibly have imagined. God is so very good -to the last drop. In places I can see HIM moving …and places I can not, I can trust HE always has a plan.
I remember times of feeling completely inadequate, utterly unhelpful, without a clue how to pray. Yet,God was there, ahead of my game. Preparing and weaving and working all things together for our good and for HIS Glory!
Because that’s just how HE rolls. Gifts that keep on giving.
Bless Yahweh, O my soul, and all within me, bless His Holy Name. Bless Yahweh, O my soul, and do not forget all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquity, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with loyal love and mercies, Who satisfies your life with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103:1–5
