"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:11-13

Right on Time...

I don't know how, but I've made it through the day without having an emotional breakdown (so far).  I start feeling that swelling of sadness inside, but have managed to keep it at bay. 

This morning I was having a hard time.  My insides wanted to cry... but my circumstances didn't have time for that.  I got on Facebook this morning and posted this...

Maybe if I close my eyes time will stop...

As soon as I did, I almost lost it.  I was trying to hold it together and get the boys ready for school.  Dylan walked up to me, put his arms around my neck, and just stood there.  Although he hadn't seen my post or my emotion, I think he just knew.  I hugged him for quite a while, we never said a word.

I've gotten alot of texts, emails, Facebook comments and calls today.  I appreciate each one.  I'm pretty sure that God put a bug in your ears to check on me today... I'm glad you are paying attention. :)  I am so thankful for each kind word, but nothing got me through my day better than that sweet boy of mine that wrapped himself around me this morning.

"Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him." Psalms 127:3


  1. I've said it before and I'll say it again, people agree that children are a blessing, but until you have kids you really don't understand ... you can't understand the full extent of the blessing that they are. For almost a year that boy lived right under your heart. He knows you better than you think:).
    Praying for you. Some days are going to be harder than others. But the days end and we get to see a new day full of God's mercies. The first of which are the gift of a new day and the blessing of encouragement that we made it through the previous one.
    Lots of love from GA!!

  2. Praying for you sweet one~ As you lay your head down tonight, and as you awake in the morning, you are loved, thought of and prayed FOR.
