Messes

Elizabeth has developed a new little quirk. If she is drinking something and she spills, she will immediately get up, go to the drawer which holds the towels, pick out a towel, come back and wipe it up. I'm sure she does it because she's seen me do it hundreds of times in her life, but everytime she does it, it is so fascinating to watch. She's become my little cleaner-upper!

A friend of mine reminded me yesterday that God didn't create the mess that we are in currently. We did that all on our own. However, He will come along side us and help us clean up our messes and turn them into blessings somehow. He will be our cleaner-upper, and it will be just as fascinating to watch.

Robyn,
I admire your trust in God during this crazy time. I agree that God does all for a reason and His purposes are way beyond what we can ever imagine. I will continue to pray for you in the upcoming weeks!

I am SOOO excited that you are pregnant! Wow!

Robyn,
I'm sure life seems crazy, but you perspective is so amazing and encouraging. I am sure that you will be blessed immensely by your obedience and willing attitude and that this "setback" or "curveball" will show itself to be truly wonderful in some way only God can orchestrate. You are a fabulous mom, teacher and friend - Elizabeth (and #2! yeah!) is so lucky, your students are so lucky and so many of us are so lucky to have you in our lives!
