But the most wonderful thing to share is that:
I'm going to be a gramma again!!!!
While searching the thrift store for "Batteries Not Included" (which we never found), I got a phone call and the funny thing is that when I heard Rachael's voice, for some reason I knew what she was gonna tell me...we couldn't be more delighted and thrilled! Trinity Faith will only be thirteen months old when either Preston Allen or another little red-headed girl comes on board!
Is she ever gonna need me and am I ever gonna need her! God is in charge of that department.
Today I was thinking about the criticism I've received for leaving family and traveling this far to follow my husband.
On the surface, it looks like I am selfish and don't really care about my family-ie. my parents, daughter, grandchildren, friends, etc...but, the truth is that I care deeply, but if I care more about them and what they think than I do about Fearing God and obeying His Word, then I am not fit to follow Him. I am not going forward if I focus on what I left behind. My focus is on where I am today, what my husband's purpose is and how I am to position myself to serve Him by Serving him. 'Wives submit to your husband as unto the Lord..."...to the degree I serve my husband, that is the degree I am serving Jesus.
I suppose this is what Grace is all about. My heart is at peace to be here with everyone I know dearly and love deeply up there. Unless one experiences it, it's difficult to explain.
These are just some of my ponderings lately...
Thanks for sharing them with me ;o)
