Thursday, June 12

I had a beautiful time tonight, soaking up wisdom from a more experienced Mom, whose children are ten years ahead of mine. Isn't shared wisdom so refreshing?

Tonight I late night cleaned (it's 11:44pm) because when my thoughts are running, cleaning seems to help. In midst of scrubbing the toilet and reaching under our bed to pull out matchbox cards, two books, mismatched baby socks and a whole lot of dust bunnies, I remembered some things:

"What man intends for evil God will use for good." (my paraphrase of Genesis 50:20)

"No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their vindication is from Me," declares the LORD. Isaiah 54:17 (This one is getting hung up tomorrow as a continual reminder. Isn't it amazing how God sends His Word to our remembrance once we hide it in our hearts at just the time we need it?)

Sean and I are so thankful and feel so blessed. We have incredible friends. One in particular called at 8 something this morning to make sure I was okay. (Love you Diane.) We are surrounded by an amazing church family. And then there are those amazing fifty toes God has blessed us with. I really have more to be thankful for than I do to stress about.

Have a sweet night,
Hannah

Hannah,

I'm a blog reader and my daughter says I'm a facebook stalker (I keep in touch with people through it and "meet" some of her friends through it too. In my wanderings I often read Gareth Gilpin's blog and he had an interesting one posted that I felt appropriate and wanted to share. I am not sure of the exact "address" of the scripture he quotes but this is what he says --

A little encouragement
June 12, 2008
Been meditating on a couple of verses out of Acts 2 over the past couple of days - thought they might encourage you too:

I saw God before me for all time.
Nothing can shake me; he’s right by my side.
I’m glad from the inside out, ecstatic;
I’ve pitched my tent in the land of hope.
I know you’ll never dump me in Hades;
I’ll never even smell the stench of death.
You’ve got my feet on the life-path,
with your face shining sun-joy all around.


Be Blessed,
Karen G.
