Let them fly!!

Boy has it been a long week. It is Friday night and I am home enjoying making soap and sewing all at the same time. I find myself enjoying staying home more and more. I guess because I have so much I like to do at home. For so many years it was a constant on the go with our boys and their activities, don't get me wrong I loved every minute of it. But we have started a new chapter in our lives and that is life without children at home. While I enjoy it sometimes, I miss my boys very very much. I must confess that I had a hard time when they both told me that God had called them into ministry. Church people can be mean, jus sayin. It is a faith walk every day that God will take care of them and keep them safe. I have always been a "fixer", but I have had to take my hands off and let God have control. That is hard sometimes for moms. Don't be afraid to let your kids fly. That is what God created them to do. Dream and become awesome Kingdom workers. So I pray that if you are struggling with letting your children go, take heart God is in control. No it is not easy, and there are many hard days when you miss them very much, but I know that they are where God has called them to be. I don't understand sometimes but I have total faith in my God that HE is in control.

Disappointed by not Disheartened

I know it has been a while since my last post and i do apologize. I have been extremely busy since school has started back. I know many of you are curious as to my blog title. Just let me begin by saying that God knows all, sees all and hears all. So take heart. I have been faced with a situation that I just do not understand, but during my prayer time the other day God gave me a peace. I was praying about a particular situation that had me very disturbed and disheartened, but while in prayer God assured me that HE KNOWS ALL, HE SEES ALL AND HE HEARS ALL. So let me encourage you today, take heart our hope is in the Lord. No matter what happens and what disappointments come our way God knows. It is so hard to trust God when you seem to see mistreatment, and people taking advantage of you or your children or whatever, but rest in His peace and know that He sees, He hears and HE KNOWS.
