The last couple of
To say that I struggled in this time would probably be a bit of understatement. (that’s why my blog has been a bit quiet—figured you didn’t want my whiny ole’ self spouting off to you) So many what if’s and unknowns and why’s. But our God is a faithful God. He has blessed us immensely this week.
1) Greg has a job that will match his heart and passions.
2) We learned that Ab’s citizenship has finally been granted! We go next week for the ceremony. He will officially now be an American.
3) We found out that we are now #13 on the ‘boy’ list. Moving on up and can’t wait to eventually see a picture of the child God will place with us to love and nurture.
4) I am blessed by a WONDERFUL group of friends. Near and Far. You know who you are. People who know and love me in spite of myself!
Okay..so after all this and I listen to this song (watch all the way to the end to be REALLY blessed) which just had me all weepy to think on how much my God really loves me. Again..in spite of myself.
Then…I am sitting outside and I see a shooting star! There is a history here. Several years ago I was at a Beth Moore conference and she spoke on creation and the stars and how they were created by God and how they show the depth of His love for us.
From Psalm 103:11(Do a study on the universe to know how high those heavens are!)
For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;
That just remained in my heart from that time. An assurance of His love. I have taught on it and many times have stood outside, looked at the stars and whispered to myself “This is how much my God loves me” I said so many times as we walked in the door to the kids “guys, look at the stars” and they would reply “yes, mom, that’s how much God loves us”
So after that day, to sit outside and see a shooting star---just magnified it all.
Yes, my God loves me.
