God is SOOO good!
Are you ever amazed at the goodness of God?? Just totally blown away and humbled that the God that created the universe cares about your petty worries, wants and dreams?? I am. I am constantly amazed at the goodness of God and how much He cares about lil' old me. Just today, I went to a small scrap gathering at my church and I went with the notion that I would just sit in a corner and scrap while the ladies gabbed away...assuming they were all old friends and I would be considered an outsider, but God had other plans. I went, I sat and started scrapping and pretty soon I noticed that all the women were introducing themselves to each other and proudly showing pics of family so that the others could see what they looked like, so I eased my way into the conversation and soon we were chatting like newfriends. Isn't that nice? But it gets better...a late comer showed up and sat down opposite of me and that most amazing thing happened...Wait for it...she is not only a mom of all boys that are right around David and Patrick's ages, but she is an all ABeka homeschooling mom! WooHoo! I about cried I got so excited. So soon we were sharing storied of homeschooling, the life of an all boy mom and rating ourselves on how crunchy we are...I don't consider myself crunchy yet, just a bit crispy...LOL! She bakes her own bread...but here's dedication for you, she grinds her own wheat, I think I've found my new hero...LOL! Anywho, I digressed a bit, but all of that say that I was touched and humbled that God would put someone like her right in a place where I couldn't help but meet her. She has offered to introduce me to other homeschooling moms in the area and take me to the homeschooling groups in town also. Thank you Jesus! So, there's my Praise the Lord moment for the week!
