Story of my Life by Oatsvall Team | Edit Post
American Idol put me over the edge tonight ... The Annie Lennox Africa piece w/ the 15 year old brother caring for his 3 younger brothers had me crying so hard I almost couldn't catch my breathe ... And the Daughtry piece at the end was so moving ... All those precious faces !!!
My flesh has me packing a bag and hoping on a plane to pick up my babies that are there, but the Lord says it is not my time yet ... He knows Maggie has much healing to do plus her surgeries ... And the Lord gives me peace by showing me all of your wonderful stories ... He is showing me that everyday somewhere some family gets the call that their child is waiting ... So where it may seem helpless, it is anything but that ... IT IS HOPEFUL because the Lord is at the center of my family and I want what He wants when He wants it ...
Update on Maggie : We will be postponing Maggie's surgery till Sept 1st ... My husband has taken a new teaching/coaching position at a new school and the change in insurances has caused us to wait ... She will have a MRI in June where they will measure the whole in her head for the artificial bone ... Please begin to pray about this w/ me ... I am trying to imagine what this will be like and my mind finds it hard to understand what she will endure yet again ... But I do know she is a survivor and this time she will have her mama w/ her every minute !!! THANK YOU LORD.
Just a sweet word to my honey ... Our family would not be where it is today had you not resigned ... You pitched in big time and took care of Jeremiah, Elijah, and Emily while I concentrated on healing Maggie ... You are godly man w/ such an amazing heart for your family ... I can't thank you enough for always putting us first no matter what !!! You are part of the air I breathe and the other 1/2 of my heart ... LOVE YOU FOREVER AND LOVE YOU MORE EACH DAY !!!!
I appreciate all your prayers and encouragement to my SIL ... I am so excited to one day soon go to the airport and see my sweet niece ...
