Never Would Have Thought

Can't believe I am doing some of things I am doing. In a few minutes, I leave for the courthouse. Today we are having a "settlement conference" with the judge regarding our separation. We will both have our attorneys with us. Never would have thought I'd find myself doing these things. God knew. Boy am I glad that this does not take Him by surprise.

Never thought I'd really have to parent a teenager. (yea, I know, how does one have a child or two and think they can escape the teenage years) I guess what I really mean is that I didn't think my kids would come from a broken home in their teenage years. My David is struggling. Making choices that he shouldn't be making. It's hard to watch. Glad that God is watching over him. So glad that God loves him even more than I do.

Trying to just trust God today. Be still. Believe in hope. Believe God. Lord, I just want to believe you today.

GOD does know, Sheryl...Trust, pray...fall in HIS arms and cry when you need to, but know that GOD can work this out to HIS glory.

Praying for you and David right now! I have walked this..I know and still know.
More important...GOD knows and knows what HE is doing.

Love and prayers,

Oh, sweet one. You are probably finished by now with your hearing. Or at least I hope as too long can be emotionally draining. I will lift your baby boy (not so but aren't they always) to the Father. I'm 35 and will always be my mom's baby.

You are on the right road....keeping looking to Him, trusting, believing.
Love,
Paula

Look at all this love and all these prayers.

I know it sounds sort of petty or cliche or something, but...

it's going to be alright. Do you listent to Sara Groves? Random question I know...but just wondering. Her music REALLy helps me and I thought you might like to have something practical and tangible to help.

You're so beautiful. don't forget it.
