God is good...

all the time. Even when I am crying and broken and wondering what in the world good can come of something, I know that I know that I know that God is always good and His ways are always perfect. Thanks to everyone who prayed (Corey, your comments were a great encouragement to me), and please continue to. I believe with all my heart that I am in a battle for my sons heart. (I will avoid sharing details to preserve his privacy, but I will report when progress is being made.) I also believe with all my heart that God has a plan for him that is good and that will be glorifying to the Lord. Still, I have to admit that the daily struggles between here and there are a very scary prospect. I will be required to put my heart on the line again and again knowing that it will be broken. I will be required to empty myself of all personal hopes for what could've been or what might be and just love him where he is in the moment. I will have to, every moment, be able to listen to the Lord and seek his wisdom. I guess that is the gift in it for me. I will HAVE to walk closer with the Lord in order to survive.

One of the happenings this week is that G is now in school. It is a looooong story as to how we got to that decision, but everyone who loves him feels it is best for him right now. He is doing well. He likes his teacher and is making friends. So far so good.

So, here he is on his first day. He was very excited, nervous and cute.

Wow... Despair one moment and blessed the next. Hmmm Now you do have empty nest during the day that is... Whoops maybe Daniel is still at home.

Thanks e-mom. It is so cool you read my blog. I love yours - what a neat ministry you have. Yes, the Lord is certainly refreshing my spirit the past couple of days. He is 'an ever present help in time of need'!
