I am sure you all have been wondering if I have come out of my hormonal funk and thankfully the answer is a resounding yes. It was as though God heard my prayer of normalcy, renewed His mercies and filled my mind with unexplained peace.
Friday was a GOOD day filled with the missed rounds of Candyland from the previous day, a long session at the library playing and picking out piles of books and finished with our good friends the Porter's with dinner and bowling. I fell asleep with a joy-filled heart and God ended a difficult week with a "happily ever after" or close enough when you have a 2 year old who pees on the floor at the bowling alley.
Just like the snow that blankets the cold barren Earth...God is faithful in covering our hearts. Every day this week we had friends showering us with love. When people ask how I am doing? My answer is INCREDIBLY and UNDESERVEDLY loved!
God reminded me of this verse yesterday as we walked out of the library...
Be Joyful in Hope, Patient in Afflication, and Faithful in Prayer. Romans 12:12
Scott and I have had opportunity to pause and give thanks, draw on each other and God for strength and talk about our hopes and dreams. We don't always give time for these things with 2 little munchkins who draw much of our time. Life is full of the good, the bad and the ugly. The difficult days make us give thanks for the many good days in between.
I saw a friend who we have been praying for to receive a baby, they can't have any biological children and yesterday at the library I saw her with a beautiful baby in her arms. I rejoiced with her and cried tears of joy. God is faithful to those who love and seek Him. It was a reminder to me, God has good in store for us and it is WORTH the wait. Until then we will draw on God and be comforted in His scriptures.
But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
