Happy Birthday Jack!
It is the wee hours of the morning and all is asleep in our household except me and the Lord. Music is quietly playing and the fire is a warm comfort from the chill. In this stillness, I ponder on the Lord's benevolent provisions. This season of my life is filled with abundance. I have so many riches, my life abounds with His blessings. Along with these gracious gifts come feelings of undeserving guilt. Do you ever feel unworthy of your life? Does guilt squeeze in when your cup overflows and your store house is full ? May I never slide into this world and away from Him! Perhaps years of pain and struggle have placed apprehension in my heart. Or is it a gentle nudge saying ~ be careful. Have I found favor in Him or is it a test? I ponder these things for there is nothing I desire more than to have a close relationship with my sovereign. Nothing means more to me than my Lord and my family. So, as I walk, no, bask in this season of peace and comfort may I be able to enjoy the goodness He has bestowed upon me.... as undeserving as I am. His peace floods over my lilfe.... God's provisions are faultless.
March is a full month and overflowing with a bounty of goodness. Honorable Son #2 celebrated his 23rd birthday yesterday, we are celebrating Sage's 6th Gotcha Day today, and her 7th birthday later this month. Willow will be placed in my arms this month and I will become a mother once more. But, most importantly we proclaim our Risen Lord on Easter Sunday. What a bountiful, blessed month...
Our first glimpse of Sage . Gong Jia Fang (in blue) 6 years ago.... a moment I will never forget.
In China with daddy.
Contemplate the gifts in your life and whence forth they came. Have a blessed and fulfilling day!
