I can't begin to describe to you the peace I've had through this whole process. I can't remember a time that I have ever felt nervous or ansy about it. I've questioned the timing, the reason, and the location, but I have also rested in the fact that God knows what He's doing in my life, even when I don't. Last night, I was reading in the book of Psalms and I came across a verse that said, "In God, I will trust." I also read in Numbers when God was angry at Moses and Aaron for hitting the rock that would give the Israelites water instead of speaking to it. He said, "...you did not trust in Me enough to honor me as holy..." Oh, Lord, for the strength to believe and trust in You enough to honor You. That is my heart's cry.
A few years ago, I attended a Women of Faith Conference and heard Babbie Mason sing for the first time. I was totally blown away by her sincerity, her singing and song writing abilities as well as her love for Christ. She sang a song at the conference that has become one of my favorites. Here is the chorus to the song, "Trust His Heart":
God is to wise to be mistaken
God is to good to be unkind.
So when you don’t understand, when you don’t see his plan,
When you can’t trace his hand, trust his heart
Keep praying, Friends! I love you all! I've got another story I want to share with you, but because of time, it will have to wait until later.
Tonight, Alise had a special gift from her Grandma Ruth. Wayne's mother just got back from a cruise to Jamaica & Puerto Rico. She left a beautiful white embroidried dress at our door today. Alise loved it and I had to make her wait until her daddy got home to call her Grandma and tell her "thank you." It was the sweetest thing. Of course, we had to coax her, but she said, "Hi! Thank you. See me. I love you. Bye!" I wish I had gotten it on video! It made my heart smile.
