A time for healing...something we do each time a certain person, who is making life difficult, stabs one of us in the back. Once again, our son, feels the pain. This time over a father and son outing where our son was not informed of nor allowed to take his son. I'm sure they have their reasons, but such actions will come back on them when Monkey Man is old enough to understand.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
A time for prayer...that God will touch her heart and heal her soul. To guide her to make better choices for their children, who continue to be the victims in their divorce. God knows our hearts and has answered many of our prayers already. We will continue to pray that His work will be done.
A time for playing...with the 'Grands'. We'll enjoyed another wonderful day of swimming and a family dinner before bible study. It's days like this that makes being a grandparent the best Journey Through LIFE!
A time for planning...our upcoming trip to a nieces graduation. With prayers answered, we received the job needed in order to make the trip possible. He also has rewarded us with more time to spend with family then we had asked for. He surely has His plan for us and we will always feel blessed by His provisions.
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.
A time for change...the trip we prayered for did come with some new direction. We thought we would be able to spend a day with our sons for their birthday and celebrate with the 'Grands'. However, a regional meeting was planned just days before. To attend this important meeting we have to leave earlier then planned. I know they will understand and will have a great time with their kids. One thing we are good at is change and we know how to grow from and work around some of the things life throws us through this journey.
