Happy Mom's Day

This is when we lived in Florida...Gainesville, Florida. I was teaching Caleb how to ride early. Fun!

Yes, they grow up so fast...but memories can never be taken from either of you. Hold on to the memories you have made together and never stop making them with your children. There is no greater blessing from God but that He would intrust us with these little ones; the blessing of children, to be a mom. He reminds us in His Word that our children are a heritage from Him. He gifted me Caleb and allowed me to raise this precious human being. I know I haven't been the perfect mom...not sure there is such a thing but I pray my failures will be to his favor. I know he will soar in life and whatever he puts his hands to will prosper. I pray for a hedge of protection around him.. that he would always walk in safety and protection. I also pray for a hedge of thorns to surround him.. that anyone who's intentions would be to bring him harm to him or interfere with the plan God has for his life would be stopped by the very hand of God. 

Fly, son...take your place in this world.

Pressing On

I've been thinking a lot about the future, the past and what is going on right here in the moment. Things are not as I would have hoped they would be on May 5, 2012. I did have a good report from my oncologist this week and I give God the glory but there have been a number of personal situations that have been pressing down on my husband and myself the past few weeks and it's made our situation a great deal more difficult. Lately, it would seem that we just manage to come out of one problem or "drama" and another comes along.

You know how you walk out into the beach and when you're ready to come back to the shore, the waves overtake you from behind and your feet are swept out from under you?.. You can't seem to secure your feet in the constant moving sand below so you completely loose your footing and down you go again. The ocean waves are doing what they were created to do and they're unforgiven and unapologetic which is exactly how I feel our life has been as of late.

I have realized lately that life will continue to sweep over us but that most importantly, we must press on...and I give God the glory for this, as well.

We are to rejoice in loss as we do in gain. I know God will ultimately raise up His children and He will reward those who diligently seek Him. I am making my intentions known to my God....I am here for His purpose and His purpose alone.

Keep pressing on............
