I was just setting here pouting a little and letting myself get depressed and sad that all our family lives so far away. We have had lots of visitors since Elijah has been born and blessed that our family got to come visit, but when they leave it is a hard. It’s bitter sweet. They are such a strong support system to us. Yes it would be awesome if there were less miles between us; and we could go visit and have family dinners; and what would really be awesome is to have a ready and more than willing babysitter anytime=), but then I am reminded that the Lord is the one that has called us to where we are and that we are a part of the family and body of Christ here in El Dorado. And there is nothing like being within the Perfect Will of our King Jesus. So when I am sad or lonesome for our family I give it to Him and sweet Peace like a river flows within!
I just wanted to take a lil moment to say, “thank you Lord for all you have done to us, for us, and in us. It’s not always easy or pretty but, oh Lord, we love you and we know that in our weaknesses You are our strength! So we will be tried with fire and not found wanting because You the maker of all and deliverer from ourselves has placed your ever loving hand on our lives. We will trust in you, our King!”
