Luke 15:31-32 “My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.” NIV
|my son with 2 of his sisters|
Sweetheart and I have a blended family. With this blended family comes all sorts of little quirks and chaos. We had hoped that soon we would be empty nesters but I am finding that God has other plans for us right now. This has been hard for us to accept and I will admit that we have sat on the floor and kicked our feet and thrown quite the tantrum in front of God. I am sure He was ready to put us both in the time out chair. His patience is immense and that is such a good thing. I am stubborn beyond imagination, especially when I am absolutely sure that I have a better plan. Which is why, on more than one occasion, my Abba has let me crash and burn in a magnificent blaze of glory. We love our children more than anyone can imagine. But….and that’s an awfully big but…..we really would love to have some light at the end of our parenting tunnel. What we are finding is that the tunnel is about 500 miles long and we are holding a match to see ahead of us. Sigh.
