Story of my Life by Oatsvall Team | Edit Post
Okay there is so much to report, but I had to stop and blog this before the moment got away from me. We are about to run out the door to the YMCA when I tell Emily to put her flip flops on when she says this ...
"I have to cover my baby so her don't get burned."
Can you feel my heart? Can you see my family changing? Can you see God growing us all? I am about to ramble here, but I have a few thoughts and updates to share.
1. The verse that talks about "a friend that sticks closer than a brother" was brought to my mind this past week when Pam Shockley and Yolanda Chapman both told me if we wanted Maggie to have a wig their daughters would grow their hair out for Locks of Love. Tears just fell ...
2. My sister-in-law gave us a full size mattress for the girls and we set it up and Emily sleep all night in it ... Praise the Lord...
3. Our care package is ready to send to Maggie and our Ped has located a specialist for her and is going to send her file now to be looked at.
4. Our pastor preached on us getting off the shore and out of the boat and going to the deep water for some intimate time with the Lord. I just loved that thought of being helpless and totally reliant upon the Lord. The thought that I need to venture out into uncharted waters for Him to grow me. I am going to share our story about the how and why of the Children of Promise list soon. Red Mary Janes said something in a comment that has encouraged me and would love to share our thoughts soon.
Love you all and thank you so much for your prayers !!!! Still missing my travel group!!!
