I am wandering .....


There are moments these days I am wandering about during my day and feel sad, incomplete, or empty and I know it comes from longing to have Maggie in my arms, so I go to the word and just start searching scripture for anything to fill me up !!! God will usually lead me to a scripture, or someone will have sent me a note or package in the mail or just yesterday my friend Tina Hutchinson sent a prayer for Maggie by email. All these ways and many more are Christ reaching out His hand to me to help me stand back up.

I love you, Lord !!! Thank you for your word that never wavers and for sending your messengers to me in many different ways, because I am weak or you are strong.

II Cor. 12:9 "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities; that the power of Christ may rest upon me."

Side Note ... Watched "We Are Marshall" last night and there is a scene in the movie when the new coach is asked, "Why would you want this job?" (coaching at the school where the plane just crashed with the entire football team on it) ... His response was something so simple and so profound ... "I look at my family and think of how hurt I would be if something every happen to them and I just thought about a team, a school, and a town was hurting and just thought I might could help." ....

Christ calls us to see the need in others and just help ... We are His hands and feet on this earth .... Love you all and am thankful for each and everyone of you ...

I love the new look of your blog. It is so beautiful and your family looks darling on the top with all the photos. I think I am going to have email the blogfairy for a new look. I am sorry you are feeling down.

You are such an encourager. I love that movie. We saw it in the theatre and I walked out with no eye makeup left.

beautiful work by Ms. Verna. I so remember the feeling empty. God is faithful. I am so glad He continues to sustain you day by day.

Verna did a gorgeous job with the blog. It looks so wonderful.
Hold on my friend. I cannot imagine how it is to look at Maggie's face each day and not have her home. God's timing is perfect. Just a little while longer. I will pray for you.

Gwen,
You don't need to get me anything, but if you would like to know something I would like, I would love something small from China when you bring Maggie home. That would mean the world to me. It would always remind me of Maggie and add some Chinese culture into our home. A man I worked with brought a small jade dragon back when he went a couple of months ago and the boys thought it was so cool.

i do have you something special ordered for Sophia, but i can definitely pick you up a piece of China while i am there ...

Always here for you, sweetie. I know it's hard...
I'm glad to hear you run to the Word when you're feeling discouraged - He is the only one who can TRULY help.
Love you soooo much and I am continuing to pray for your family.

I totally know what you mean about God speaking to your through His Word, words and encouragement from friends exactly when you need it.... I have experienced some of that recently myself.

I have not seen the movie yet. I went to rent it the other day, but it was out. I'll have to try again.
