life can change in the space of one moment... one phone call... one word. Made me hold my babies and husband close, that's for sure.
Do y'all remember this post where I giggled about God speaking to my man through a Larry boy car's words proclaiming, "I AM THAT HERO?" Gosh, the story keeps getting better. Adrain and I are like excited school children, desperate to share our encouragements and stories with each other, at the end of the day. Reading snippets of our devotionals and things that spoke to our hearts during this waiting season. Every single thing is encouraging us to have faith. Simple faith. A couple days ago, I was texting back and forth to a friend in a similar season as I was getting ready for the day. She was sharing all of the open doors and answers to prayer and I was cheering her on... but then I set the phone down and thought, "God... will I ever be able to say these things about OUR story?" I kid you not... I was startled in that instant by, "I AM THAT HERO!" Middle of the day... house all quiet... kids and husband gone. Laughter bubbled up inside of me. I told one of my dear bloggy friends, Sally. (If you don't know Sally yet, please go meet her. She is precious.) Anyway she emailed me and said, "Don't replace the battery just yet. Let God speak!" I laughed and laughed. Weird car... Cool God.
favorite peeps (who also just happened to be today's post sponsor) to make it all come together. And let me just say that any day I can beat on a piece of wood... is a good day. (grin) Also... any day I can mix up champagne pink paint, is a good day. Sorry I can't show any more... it's a step-by-step process and I'm only about 1/4 of the way there! Don't worry... soon I shall give many details and paint colors.
Finally, I now have an I-will-run-with-you-in-the-rain partner. Which means I can run on trails again. (I tend to find them a bit scary unless I have a buddy, especially on dark, rainy days. Safety first!) Which also means I won't talk myself out of doing it. Which also means I'm going to get serious. Which also means I'm suddenly aware of how much I've been slacking. Dangit.
Going to memorize this today. Ask me if I did it when you see me next, okay? (grin.) "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28
Okay that's it for my random brain this morning. You should see me when I imbibe coffee. It ain't pretty.
Gonna be a good day!
