To work this blog into my schedule...because I am not going to give up devotions, I have decided that I will blog in the evening.
It was hard getting off to school. It was truly the hand of God that guided me by his hand. Little things tend to set me off into tears. I was really doing fine until I got to the corner of the school and that little building that sets on the corner of the church lot. They just put a new roof on it. I just looked at that roof and started crying. I sat in the car for a bit to get control. Prayed for strength and help. I made my way into the school....and took a big breath. Mr. Aaron Toler was in the teachers work room. I came in sniffling and more less crying. I know he didn't know what to do or say. I just stood there for a minute, blowing my nose and crying. Then, God gave me control.
The day was pretty good. Little things would bring tears to my eyes. Moments, places, people....its all there. But, Praise His Name I made it. I made it. It was hard putting a smile on my face for the kids. Sometimes I just couldn't do it. I couldn't bring a smile. But I hoped and prayed that they understood.
My house is a disaster to say the least right now. Joe is going to town. I am looking forward to the change. He is such a sweet man. I can sense God in him.
Went to Isaac's game tonight. He did well. I was proud of him. It was so sweet of Sallye and Jeff to come and watch. They have their own family, yet they have taken so much time with us. I pray that in some very big way God will Bless them beyond their wildest imaginations!
JJ...Thanks for reading and sharing my blog. I appreciate your prayers.
Jeff. I would be honored, John would be honored for you to use him as an example. But make sure God receive the Glory. John was who and what he was because of the example of Jesus. He wanted to be like Jesus. He wanted to emulate Christ in all his actions and words. I believe he succeeded and is receiving his reward in Heaven.
Jadean, I never meant for you to do all that for me. I appreciate it though. Just let me know what I need to do. You are so sweet.
Lisa, It was good to hear from you. Apologize to your mom for me. She called one day and I saw her name on my caller i.d. But I was having a very bad day. I just couldn't bring myself to answer it. Please tell her how sorry I am. When I feel I can, I will call her. Make sure she knows I love her very much. I hope she understands. Thanks for reading my blog and staying informed for all of you up there. But mainly, thanks for your prayers and support.
Matthew said NSI was not as bad as he had expected. He knew some people there so that helped things out a bit. I am glad. He is sitting on the couch helping Rach with her homework right now. What a sight for me to see. He is being so patient and gentle with her. Just like John would have been. God answers prayers.....Matthew is proof!
That God would help me again tomorrow as things come and go...that I will turn each over to him.
That God would continue to work in Matthews life. Not just softening his heart, but beginning a work in him that will bring God glory.
That God would do a work in Rachel, Isaac and Hannahs life also. That he would begin to teach them his ways. That they will learn what it is to walk in his way...and desire that way.
Peace, wisdom, knowledge for everyday life.
