Please continue to Pray

Satan intends to destroy us, but God intends us to glorify his name! I keep saying this, because #1 it is true and #2 all odds are stacked against us even with the rest of our family and friends.  I have taken a moment to look at my mounds of email and realized that there are so many things going on with families this season.  I want to remind everyone that God is in control.  He is not surprised and that He doesn't give us more than we can handle...

As I write this, I just had a moment of lapse earlier.  My husband is dealing with our future internally, my son is snotty and congested, and I have a daughter that was vomiting last night.  Overwhelmed is an understatement.   I lost it this morning around 9:45.  I have been up since 6 am with William tending to him and listening to his non stop whining (which I do not do whining-never have).  My eldest just told me let us go back to grandma's and I stopped and said I am sorry. I explained how I was feeling and now everyone seems to be doing their thing.  Thank you Lord for intervening in the moment.  Your Grace is so good.  We are praying for Wayne's health, as he can not have the symptoms the children are having.  I am also praying that the Lord will keep us from fear, so we can enjoy the time we have with one another.

I finally swept the floor and started some clothes today.  I am waiting for the company Wayne is leased with to call.  They want to talk to us? Settling is far from my mind, b/c Wayne will have to have more surgeries and no one knows (but the Lord) when or if they will stop.  I am looking long term, not just right now.  Please pray that God will make it clear to us, what we should do, even if it is every moment.  His direction is the best because he sees the whole picture.  A sweet lady reminded me yesterday morning that we are the family, not our belongings.  It is something I already know, but need to be reminded of during this time.

 It has been such a blessing for the Breakfasts and dinners we have received.  I need them, almost, just so I can get to the other functions of the house.  Thank you Lord for your people-Bring them strength and peace just as you tell me you do in Psalm.  Let this situation Lord bring your glory and forever change the hearts of those around us.  I pray for all those families that are asking for prayer. Lord you know them by name, you know the numbers of hairs on their head.  Encourage them, give them strength and help them to turn to you no matter how bad it gets. In Jesus' Name I pray Amen.
