These days...

I must say that I'm having fun!
I forgot how young (and OLD) little children can make you feel.
The things they can teach you - their trust and excitement and joy and love....
The constant awareness of where and what they are doing.... quiet is not always good!

The blessings of children... The joy of watching them grow and learn ....

Today I'm praising God for my blessings, for His goodness to me and my family.

I'm also filled with sorrow. Some precious friends just lost their 19 year old son. He was on his way back to college yesterday and was 5 minutes away. He went to sleep and had a head on collision. He is gone. Instantly. Not there. He had everything. Now, none of that matters.

Life on this earth is temporary. I am more aware of that today. I want to celebrate today. I want to love unsparingly. I want to enjoy and be thankful for what I have and where I am. My life is good. It is not perfect - and it won't be this side of heaven. But, my attitude determines how I see it... I choose to see goodness, perfection, joy, peace, love...

Please pray with me for Eric's family and girlfriend. What a loss and emptiness his death leaves. I pray that the Father will fill them with His comfort as only He can.

Praying for Eric's family for sure. This is sitting close to the need for 23 year old Cody.
Thank you for the reminder to embrace this day fully, as we are not promised tomorrow. God is faithful.

Thankfully God understands what we can not and interprets the groanings in our spirits. Will pray for the family.

Sing! Shout! Clap Your Hands! Cody is awake! He is talking! He shall live and not die and proclaim that
the kingdom of God has come near to him... into his heart and life.

Just wanted you to know the miracle is in progress. Thanks so much for praying.

I am so sorry to hear of this loss. It is so hard to understand these things sometimes, but thankfully God knows better than we do and he has a reason for everything.
